Antonio Conte, Chelsea FC Players on Hand to Witness Wimbledon History

Share

Antonio Conte was among the sports celebrities present at Wimbledon Centre Court to watch Roger Federer further solidify his status as a legend among legends. At Centre Court, Federer won his record eighth Wimbledon title with ease, not even losing a single set to challenger Marin Cilic.

Federer won his 19th major title and Conte, Manager of Chelsea Football Club, the current reigning Premier League champions, was on hand to witness history. The All England Club is neighbors of sorts with the Stamford Bridge outfit, and three of Conte’s players were also on hand today.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, defender Cesar Azpilicueta and wing back Marcos Alonso were also watching the competition and they grabbed a picture with newly crowned women’s champion, Garbine Muguruza.

Cesc Fabregas and former Arsenal striker/current television pundit Thierry Henry were also on hand. Before this year’s Wimbledon, Federer had been tied at a men’s record seven Wimbledon championships alongside Pete Sampras and William Renshaw.

Chelsea open their preseason with an international friendly against Bayern Munich in nine days.
