Wimbledon: Djokovic defends his title

World number one Novak Djokovic has successfully defended his Wimbledon title following taking out the 2015 The Championships at Wimbledon Gentleman Singles Title over fan favourite Roger Federer on Sunday.

In an encounter which took two hours and 56 minutes Serbian Novak Djokovic made it back-to-back Wimbledon crowns following a four-set 7-6 6-7 6-4 6-3 victory over Swiss second seed Roger Federer in the 2015 The Championships at Wimbledon Gentleman Singles Final.

It was Djokovic’s third title at the year’s third grand slam and his ninth career singles grand slam title as for the second consecutive year he defeated the legendary Swiss maestro in the decider at the All England club.

The Serbian who was contesting his third consecutive Wimbledon final claimed his second grand slam singles title in the calendar year (he also won the Australian Open) as he continued to show why he is the best male singles player in the world.

Djokovic fought back from a service break down in the first set to take it out in a tiebreak (7-1) before losing the second set to a determined Federer who levelled the proceedings following saving seven set point opportunities by the Serbian.

A short rain delay in the third set seemed to suit Djokovic who broke Federer early and won his service games to move to within one set of claiming arguably the most prized trophy in the sport.

Djokovic didn’t let up in the fourth set as he seemed to produce when it most countered as he broke Federer twice in the set, the final break coming in the final game of the match.
