Novak Djokovic claimed his fifth Wimbledon title

Grand Slam

The world number one on Sunday beat Roger Federer in the final on Centre Court in a thriller which lasted four hours and 57 minutes.

After saving two match points when Federer served for victory at 8-7 in the deciding set, the Serb went on to win 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 13-12 (3) in a match that lasted just three minutes short of five hours.

Federer had hoped to follow up his semi-final victory over Rafael Nadal by completing the double over his other great rival for the first time at a grand slam but was denied his ninth Wimbledon title after the final was settled in a fifth-set tie-break for the first time.
