Novak Djokovic Defeats Federer for Wimbledon Title with Brazen Backhands
Unlike the last time he faced Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic kept his head on Sunday, and it left him with his second Wimbledon title. Defeating Federer, 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4, the grueling match was won by the Serb's defensive backhands and second serves. Djokovic held his own against the seven-title player, battling through a leg injury at the start of the fifth and defending against 67 attacks on net by Federer. He only had 10 unforced errors in the five sets. As soon as Federer missed his first serve, Djokovic's strategy turned offensive and with Federer serving at 4-5, Djokovic found himself Wimbledon's winner.
