Top seed Novak Djokovic thwarted Roger Federer's eighth attempt at a championship to win his second title at the All England Club in five sets by a score of 6-7(9), 6-4, 7-6(7), 5-7, 6-4.
Federer delighted the partisan crowd by taking the first set after a long tiebreak, but Djokovic used the only break of the first 36 games to take the second set by a score of 6-4. He then won a tiebreak of his own to push Federer to the brink, but Federer fought off a championship point in the fourth set, then tied the match at two sets each.
Despite the impressive comeback, the fourth-seeded Federer has never won a Grand Slam title after falling behind two sets to one. He couldn't change his luckon Sunday.
The win is the seventh Grand Slam title of 27-year-old Djokovic's career and his first since the 2013 Australian Open.
