Without doubt, yes.

A win on Sunday will make him the indisputable king of grass.

Yes, obviously. There would be no logical reason to put Sampras over Federer as Wimbledon GOAT if Federer has an extra Wimbledon title.

Naturally. Plus it would have come playing against a Djokovic who has lost 3 times all year. Federer will be the oldest ever champion if he wins. This is going to be one epic final either way. I hope it lasts the way so that I can watch it. Will finish work at 4 so will miss the first 2 hours at least.

Absolutely. Many people regard him as the greatest already due to his achievements and records alone. But an 8th Wimbledon will separate him from William Renshaw and Pete Sampras, whom both have 7 titles. The thing with Federer is his classical game which is used in a modern game, where effectively he should not be winning. His ability to create winners from losing positions is ridiculous. Hopefully next year he will win. If he gives himself enough chances, and his game is on point (which was not against Djokovic), I can definitely see an 8th Wimbledon. He deserves it.

He's the greatest Wimbledon champion even without the 8th title, imho.
