Watch Novak Djokovic Beat Roger Federer In Historic Wimbledon Final

Watch Novak Djokovic Beat Roger Federer In Historic Wimbledon Final

Djokovic, last year's Wimbledon victor, took the first set 7-6 after Federer miscued a backhand and sent it wide to lose the tiebreak despite having a 5-3 lead.

Novak Djokovic saved two match points to beat Roger Federer in the longest ever singles final at Wimbledon at four hours, 57 minutes.

Today, the Centre Court was brimmed with nearly 14, 000 tennis followers and majority were Roger Federer fans.

"That was one thing that I promised myself coming on to the court today, that I needed to stay calm and composed, because I knew that the atmosphere will be as it was".

"It was a great match".

It was a crushing blow for Federer who struck 94 winners to Djokovic's 54 and for long periods eclipsed the man on the other side of the net. He also won Wimbledon in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

Had Federer won his 21st major, Djokovic, five years the Swiss's junior at 32, would have needed seven more grand slam titles to surpass his 37-year-old great rival - a number most considered too much of a stretch even for the super Serb.

The final clash between Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic will be played at the Centre Court of All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London.

"Unfortunately one player has to lose and we both had our chances".

However, don't expect Federer to call it quits any time soon.

Roger Federer is going to take the Rogers Cup off.

"It is with the heart of a hero that Djokovic won this final, one of the most dramatic", in the tournament's history, Politika concluded.

Djokovic is now just three men's singles titles short of equalling the record held by Federer, after moving level in the historic standings with legend Björn Borg.

Owing to the newest changes in Wimbledon, both players headed for the third tie-break of the match after winning 12 games each in the fifth set. In the tie-break, the Swiss playing flawless tennis to get to 5-3, blew the lead.

As the newfangled tiebreaker carried the last set alone past the two-hour mark, it was Djokovic who was better.

But Federer hit an edgy forehand out on his first matchpoint, then left the door ajar on his second and Djokovic whipped a forehand past him at the net.

Djokovic, meanwhile, revealed that he had come up with a novel way for dealing with the overwhelmingly pro-Federer crowd.

Winning all three tiebreaks was the key for Djokovic in the 7-6 (7-5) 1-6 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 13-12 (7-3) victory.

Although a sublime stretching Djokovic volley kept Federer from another break point, the veteran finally led for the first time at 8-7 when he whipped a forehand through the defense.
