Wimbledon 2012: Roger Federer humbled by sporting legends

Roger Federer praised golf superstar Tiger Woods on Sunday for the
American's support as he stormed to a record-equalling seventh
Wimbledon title.

Woods tweeted Federer after the Swiss star had claimed a 17th Grand
Slam crown by beating Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 in the final,
although Federer didn't need to resort to social media to find that
out.

Woods had already sent him a personal message of congratulation.

"Hats off to Murray for a great fight. But we saw why Fed is the
#GOAT," tweeted Woods, using the short form for 'greatest of all
time'.

"I didn't need to get it through Twitter, I got one from himself,"
Federer told reporters.

"He was very pumped up these last couple days for me. He was very supportive."
