Novak Djokovic of Serbia falls after playing a return to Roger Federer of Switzerland during their men’s singles final match at the All England.
No man has won tennis’ oldest major tournament more often than Federer, and he was not about to let it go easily. Djokovic went from being a point from victory in the fourth set to suddenly caught in the crucible of a fifth, and knew all too well that he had come up short in recent Grand Slam title matches. Steeling himself when he so desperately needed to, Serbia’s Djokovic held on for a 7 , , 4 , , victory after nearly four hours of momentum shifts Sunday to win Wimbledon for the second time – and deny Switzerland’s Federer what would have been a record eighth championship at the All England Club.

Victory over Novak Djokovic this afternoon would secure him a record-breaking eighth title at the All England Club. And with fears the Serbian could be running on empty after a number of gruelling matches, the Swiss maestro believes his superior energy levels could make all the difference.
Djokovic has been on court almost five hours longer than his great rival, who has dropped serve just once during the entire tournament. However, by contrast, Federer has made serene progress through the draw, barely breaking sweat apart from a stern examination against Stan Wawrinka in the last eight. The shock second-round defeat to Sergiy Stakhovsky 12 months is but a distant memory and two years after winning the last of his 17 Grand Slams the seven-time champion is determined to add to his legacy.
When he was sent crashing out of Wimbledon 12 months ago and then suffered a similar fate at the hands of Tommy Robredo in the US Open there were calls for him to hang up his racquet. Instead, he recruited two-time Wimbledon winner Stefan Edberg as his coach and trained harder during the off-season than at any point in his glittering career. Federer feels he is much fitter now than when he beat Andy Murray in the final.
