After splitting the first four sets, Federer had two match points in set number five but couldn’t close out the match. The set eventually ended up in a tiebreaker which was dominated by Djokovic.
This is the first year a tiebreaker was played in a 5th set of a Wimbledon final with the score tied at 12-12. In previous years, the match would continue on until a player was able to win the final set by two games.
Sunday’s match lasted four hours and 57 minutes.
With his latest win, Djokovic has a total of 16 Grand Slam titles.
Federer was seeking his ninth Wimbledon title but just fell short.
