Champions Roger Federer and Garbine Muguruza were present with their trophies. Muguruza secured the title with a straight sets win over Venus Williams. Meanwhile, Federer roared to a record eighth title with a straightforward win over Marin Cilic.
According to the Wimbledon, the tradition of dancing between the two champions ceased in 1977. Although former winners have danced together since. According to a spokesperson at The All England Club, there was no dance floor at the venue. Nevertheless, that may not have stopped the two champions.
