Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon title
Djokovic defeated Federer 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 5-7, 6-4.
Novak Djokovic won his second Wimbledon title Sunday, beating the seven-time champion Roger Federer, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 5-7, 6-4.
With the victory, Djokovic moved past Rafael Nadal to claim the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings, which he lost to Rafael Nadal last October.
It was Djokovic’s seventh Grand Slam title, but his first since the 2013 Australian Open. Djokovic, 27, had lost his previous three Grand Slam finals, including last year at Wimbledon against Andy Murray. But this win improved his record in Grand Slam finals to 7-7. It was his 45th singles title overall.
It was the 35th meeting between the two.
