In 2003, Nick Newlife placed a bet that Federer would win at Wimbledon seven times before the year 2019. Upon his death in 2009, Newlife left the betting slip to Oxfam in his will.
Federer secured his seventh title at the All England Club on Sunday afternoon (July 8) with a four-set victory over Andy Murray, and Newlife's stake of £1,520 ($2,355) returned £101,840 ($157,808) for the charity.
Oxfam spokesperson Andrew Barton said that while he was disappointed Andy Murray had not been able to produce a home victory, he was pleased with the bequest.
"It's just so unfortunate that he nailed it against Andy Murray. I was just sitting there watching the tennis and I kept finding myself calling for Murray, particularly in that long game in the third set," Barton explained to BBC Radio 5 Live.
"Then, my head is telling me: 'Andrew, remember Oxfam gets the money if Federer wins'."
Newlife's original wager with William Hill was made at odds of 66/1.
