Djokovic beats Federer to win fifth Wimbledon title

Defending champion Novak Djokovic claimed his fifth Wimbledon title beating eight-time champion Roger Federer 7-6 (7/5), 1-6, 7-6 (7/4), 4-6, 13-12 (7/3) in the longest ever final and settled by an historic tie-break.


The 32-year-old Serbian saved two match points as he took his Grand Slam tally to 16, four off Federer's overall record.


Djokovic's victory extends to 11 successive Grand Slams won by the big three, himself, Federer and Rafael Nadal.
At 4 hours and 57 minutes it was the longest final at Wimbledon.


Stan Wawrinka was the last player outside the trio to win a Grand Slam, the 2016 US Open beating Djokovic.
The last player to win a Grand Slam aged under 30 was Andy Murray, who won the 2016 Wimbledon title aged 29.
