In the longest final of Wimbledon history, Novak Djokovic has destroyed Roger Federer's hopes for the next grandiose tennis coup. In the final over five sets of Serbian world ranking first defeated the eight-time Wimbledon winner from Switzerland with 7: 6 (7: 5), 1: 6, 7: 6 (7: 4), 4: 6 and 13:12 (7: 3).
Impact losses on both sides increased the tension to the very last point. After defending two match balls Djokovic finally cheered after his 4:57 hours over his fifth Wimbledon triumph. Previously, Rafael Nadal and Federer had delivered the longest endgame to date in 4:48 hours in 2008, and Federer lost even then.
