Wimbledon: Djokovic Defeats Federer, Retains Title

0

 
Defending champion Novak Djokovic saw off seven-time champion Roger Federer in four sets to win his third Wimbledon and ninth Grand Slam title.
 
The Serb, 28, won 7-6 (7-1) 6-7 (10-12) 6-4 6-3 to overtake the likes of Jimmy Connors, Andre Agassi and Ivan Lendl in the all-time list of major winners.
 
Federer, 33, had hoped to become the first man to win Wimbledon eight times.
 
The Swiss won a thrilling second set tie-break but Djokovic came through to win in two hours and 56 minutes.
 
He adds a third victory at the All England Club to one US Open and five Australian Open titles, and the Serb has now won 48 matches and lost just three in 2015.
 
The world number one's most recent defeat came against Stan Wawrinka in last month's French Open final, but five weeks later he has gone some way to making up for missing out on the one major title to still elude him.
