Published Add your comment

In a epic final it was world number one Novak Djokovic who was crowned 2015 Wimbledon champion beating seven-time holder Roger Federer 7-6 (7-1) 6-7 (10-12) 6-4 6-3 in a classic. 

The First Set 

The match lasted close to three hours with both men showing their hunger, mental strength and passion in order to be crowned champion of SW19.

An excellent start from the world number two Federer took an early lead but Djokovic was never too far behind and was able to save two set points before the spoils were shared at 6-6.

The Serbian kept a composed head and won the tie break emphatically 7-1, snatching the first set of the seven-time champion.

The Second Set

Roger Federer showed the world in the second set why he is the greatest male tennis player in history, the 33 year old saved seven set points before taking the tie break 12-10.

The tennis played in this set was breath taking. The 17-time major winner served, returned and volleyed beautifully showing no signs of ageing.

There were some massive rally stroked played between both stars but it was Federer who edged it.

The Third Set

After suffering such a devastating second set loss, the defending champion produced fantastic mental strength.

The 28 year old broke Federer's serve before rain delayed the competition with Djokovic 3-2 up. When both players returned to centre court the world number one broke the challengers serve again to lead 4-3 eventually taking the set 6-4.

The eight-time major winner was showing the same toughness and heart that he did when he defeated Kevin Anderson in the fourth round after going two sets down.

The Fourth Set

The fourth proved to be the final set as a double fault and some unforced errors from Federer gave Djokovic breathing space.

The former champion continued to show his drive and stayed in the game saving two break points but it eventually became a successful defence for the reigining champion as Novak Djokovic won the set and the championship 6-3.

Dominant Djokovic 

The Serbian has now equalled his coach Boris Becker's three titles and overtaken Spaniard Rafael Nadal in majors at SW19.

At the moment, the nine slams Djokovic has are destined to go into double figures, the most impressive part of the world number ones performance was his mental fortitude.

Roger Federer is understandably a fan favourite at Wimbledon and that was noticeably heard throughout the crowd who wanted the Swiss master to make history with an eighth crown.

The way in which the 33 year old won the second set would more than likely dishearten most opponents but instead it reinvigorated the champion who came back in dominant fashion to win the next two sets.

Wimbledon Classic   

A fighter and a champion Novak Djokovic is starting to dominant men's tennis.

Now 20-20 with Federer in all competitions, the only blip so far is the French Open where the Serbian has finished runner up 3 times.

Roger Federer is exceptional and will keep playing, the dream is still there for an eighth Wimbledon which we all hope he will achieve, but it was the world number one who came out on top this Sunday.

The final was a classic, as we all bid farewell to Wimbledon this year, we can look back at the tournament with great memories, SW19 never disappoints.
