Novak Djokovic defeats Roger Federer to win Wimbledon

World number one Djokovic won 7-6 (7/1), 6-7 (12/10), 6-4, 6-3 to add the Wimbledon title to the Australian Open he captured in January. Federer is the only man to have beaten Djokovic in all four majors. Djokovic is the only man to have beaten Federer in all four majors. Its even now.

It was a moment for Djokovic just a month after his heartbreaking French Open final defeat against Stan Wawrinka – a loss that denied him the only major title he has yet to win.

“It’s a big challenge playing against Roger. A lot of players of my generation have looked up to him and followed his lead,” said Djokovic who now has the same number of Wimbledon titles as coach Boris Becker who won his first 30 years ago.

“I knew coming on the court that Roger is going to play like he always plays, at his best when it matters the most. He makes you work hard every single point.”

For 33-year-old Federer, it was a bitterly disappointing end to his bid to become the oldest Wimbledon champion of the Open era.
