Serbian Novak Djokovic wins his second Wimbledon title after defeating mighty Roger Federe.
After winning the tirles he said: “First of all I want to congratulate Roger it was a great match to be a part of he is a magnificent champion and a great example of a great athlete and a role model. I respect everything you have done and thanks for letting me win today. “That’s why he has 17 Grand Slams because at important times he comes up with those shots. After losing the fourth set it wasn’t easy to go on and win the fifth set, I don’t know how I did it. “This is the best tournament in the world and the one I always wanted to win so to be able to compete at such a high level I am so grateful.”
The Serb dedicates his win to his girlfriend and unborn child, thanks his team and pays tribute to his first coach back home who passed away earlier this year.
Runner-up Roger Federer on BBC One: “It was a great final. I can’t believe I made it to five, it wasn’t looking good for a while.
“Going into a match with Novak, you know it’s going to be tough. I can only say congratulations to him. It was an amazing match and an amazing tournament. It’s well-deserved.”I don’t know if my daughters quite understand, but it’s nice that they came out. I felt the love out here, so thanks a lot. See you next year.”
