Wimbledon 2019: How to watch Roger Federer vs

Federer twice came back from having lost tie breaks but in the end succumbed to the relentless accurate counter-punching from Djokovic, going down 7-6 (7-5) 1-6,7-6 (7-4), 4-6,13-12 (7-3). But Djokovic is now 3-0 against Federer in finals at the place and 4-0 against him in five-setters anywhere.

Djokovic, meanwhile, is trying to cut the lead between his tennis rival, seeking his 16th career grand slam singles title. Rafael Nadal has 18. The two tennis legends are level at 11-11 through five sets and the sports world is captivated.

The final was decided by a tiebreaker after both players fought to 12-12 in the fifth set, and as was the case throughout the match, Djokovic played his best during the extra frames, while Federer failed to close him out.

This is the first year Wimbledon is using deciding-set tiebreakers, and only when the score reaches 12-12.

Federer is seeking his record-extending eighth title, while Djokovic is seeking his fifth. In 2015 the USWNT were crowned as World Cup champions in Canada to later Nole earned a new victory also against the Swiss Roger Federer at The Championships, though this time the match ended after four sets.

"It's about trying to win Wimbledon, trying to have good runs here, playing in front of such an unbelievable crowd in this Centre Court against players like Novak and so forth. But that's how it goes", Federer said.

Nadal is only two adrift and showing no sign of letting his iron grip on the French Open slip, while Djokovic has been open about the fact he is playing for history.

He also teamed up with American Desirae Krawczyk but unfortunately the pair were defeated 7-6, 6-7, 5-7 in the first round, as the Canberran sorted their evening plans in the post match press conference.

Djokovic has done this to Federer before.

In their first grand slam meeting in three and a half years, Djokovic struggled with his serve early on - fortunate to see Federer's ferocious forehand squander an opportunity - and could not get his return game going either.

Djokovic hit just two winners in the second set, compared to 14 in the first.

After a grueling Wimbledon final, Novak Djokovic savored his win over Roger Federer with a celebratory snack: some grass from the court. Federer was comfortably on top in the third set, flashing winners from all parts of the court but was unable to convert a set point in the 10th game.

Federer is looking for his ninth Wimbledon title, while Djokovic is after his fifth.
