Novak Djokovic is crowned king of Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic has revealed his epic Wimbledon final victory over Roger Federer was his most ‘mentally demanding’ match ever.

The Serb star saved two championship points in the championship’s longest-ever singles final to retain his title in a thrilling win over Roger Federer.

Federer, who at 37 was chasing a record-equalling ninth Wimbledon singles title, added: ‘It was a great match, it was long, it had everything. Novak, congratulations, man, that was crazy.’

In one of the most dramatic matches the All England Club has ever witnessed, Djokovic defied a crowd screaming for his opponent by becoming the first player to win a singles match on a deciding tie-break.
