Roger Federer's seventh Wimbledon championship and 17th Grand Slam singles title was notable for many historic reasons. It also provided us with one of the great betting stories of recent memory. Nine years ago, a man from Great Britain bet £1,520 pounds ($2,361.96) at 66-1 odds that Federer would win Wimbledon at least seven times. The man who placed the wager passed away in 2009. However, the ticket was still cashed yesterday by a charity organization for $157,749.85.
