Novak Djokovic ended his 18 month grand slam drought in a nail biting Wimbledon final against Roger Federer.

The Serb won his second Wimbledon title 6-7 (7-9) 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 5-7 6-4.


Djokovic had lost his last three major finals and had brought in Boris Becker to his background team to help change his run.


Had Ferderer won, he would have been the oldest Wimbledon champion in recent history at 32, and it would have been his eighth title at the championships.


After three hours and 56 minutes, Djokovic celebrated clinching victory by falling to his knees and eating some grass, just as he did in 2011.


“After losing the fourth set it wasn’t easy to go on and win the fifth set, I don’t know how I did it,” Djokovic retold.


“This is the best tournament in the world and the one I always wanted to win, so to be able to compete at such a high level – I am so grateful.”
