Djokovic beats Federer in Wimbledon epic to win fifth title

Novak Djokovic again proved the toughest of nuts for Roger Federer to crack as he repelled everything the Swiss could throw at him to claim his fifth Wimbledon title in the first All England Club final to be decided by a tiebreaker. The defending champion was outshone at times on Centre Court and saved two match points deep into a gripping decider, but he dredged his tank of mental and physical resilience to claim a thrilling 7-6(5) 1-6 7-6(4) 4-6 13-12(3) win. Nothing could split the players in an intoxicating final set and the match was already the longest Wimbledon singles final in history when the club’s new rule stipulating a tiebreak at 12-12 in a deciding set was deployed for the first time in singles.
