Novak Djokovic became the 3rd man in over 30 years to regain World No. 1 ranking by winning the Wimbledon championship title as he overcame the legendary Roger Federer 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 in an epic 5 set battle that lasted 3 hours & 56 minutes.

This was Djokovic's 2nd Wimbledon title & his 7th overall major title

 

 

Novak+Djokovic+Day+Thirteen+Championship

 

Novak Djokovic reacts after winning his 2nd Wimbledon & overall his 45th singles career title

 

 

1st Set

 

 

There were no breaks of service in the 1st set. The 1st set saw some great hitting & long rallies. Federer got the 1st mini break & lead by 4-2 at the 1st change-over. But, how ever, the Serb won the next 4 points out of 8 & had a set point at 6-5. The Swiss maestro managed to save it & then won the tie-breaker 9-7. The first set lasted 51 minutes.

 

 

2nd Set

 

 

Novak Djokovic got the first break of the match in the 3rd game. This was just the 2nd time, when Federer's service got broken during the whole tournament. Djokovic also had to call for the trainer because of his fall in the opening game of the 2nd set.

 

 

That one break of set was enough as Djokovic served out the set 6-4 in 43 minutes.

 

 

3rd Set

 

 

There were no break of serves in the 3rd set also. Federer for the 8th time in his career served 4 aces in a row in the 9th game.

 

 

The 3rd set tie-breaker went in Djokovic's favor, he lead 4-2 after the 1st changeover & won the tie-breaker 7-4. The set lasted 49 minutes.

 

 

4th Set

 

 

The 4th set was the most dramatic set of the match. The top seeded Djokovic got the 1st break in the 4th game but Federer managed to break back immediately & it was 2-3, back on serve. Djokovic again broke Federer's service and then immediately held his service to lead by 5-2 and it seemed as if the match would be over soon.

 

 

Federer had a quick hold & it was 5-3. Federer then showed great composure as he broke the Serbian's service to make it 4-5. Djokovic had a championship point at 30-40, Federer managed to save it with an ace which was called fault by the linesman but Federer challenged it. Federer managed to save the break point and held his service to make it 5-all.

 

 

Federer then broke Djokovic's service in the next game and held his service to win the 4th set 7-5 in 49 minutes make it 2sets all.

 

 

5th Set

 

 

This was the 1st Wimbledon that went to the deciding 5th set after that epic 2009 final between Roddick and Federer. The last 7 Wimbledon finals (that went to the 5th set) was won by the guy who lost the 4th set.

 

Federer had all the momentum going in to the 5th set. Djokovic had to take a medical time out after the 3rd game.

 

Federer had a break point in the 7th game but Djokovic managed to save it & then, Djokovic had three break points but Federer managed to save those & it was 4-all.

 

Djokovic held and it was 5-4. Djokovic had two more championship points & Federer netted a backhand on match point as this epic encounter ended in the 10th game of the deciding set.

 

 

Here are the match stats -----

 

 

Br4Gc9ICMAE-RNh.jpg

 

 

Novak Djokovic dedicated the title to his fiancee Jelena Ristic, their future child, his family, his coaching team and his 1st coach Jelena Gencic who passed away last year.

 

Rankings:

 

 

Novak Djokovic will regain #1 ranking from Rafa Nadal after 40 weeks & almost assured of holding on this #1 ranking for *at least* the next 9 weeks.

 

 

Roger Federer after his semi-final win has already ensured #3 ranking & Swiss #1 ranking.

What a match! What an effort! What a fight back in the fourth set! What a crying shame Roger could not pull it off, he was so very, very nearly there.

But removing the emotional involvement, I think Roger and his team should look back on Wimbledon 2014 and be very proud of his performance and will hopefully have identified points that need honing before the next challenge if he is to defy the pundits and prove something to himself.

I really don't know how these players cope with this time and time again. All the hard work in the build up, the rising through the rounds, reaching the final rounds with the emotion that involves, the expectations, the hopes, the dreams, then the let down if you lose. Back to the beginning for the next tournament.

At least Roger now has his growing family back home and that is important for keeping you mentally grounded. The picture of Charlene and Myla applauding their Dad said it all for me at any rate and obviously means the world to him.
