July 14, 2019 -- Wimbledon, UK
Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer made history on the court today as the battled for over 5 hours, pushing the final match to be decided by a tiebreaker at 12-12 in the 5th. Unfortunately, despite two match points, Roger came up short today and lost a hard fought instant classic 7-6(5), 1-6, 7-6(4), 4-6, 13-12(3).
Novak beat Roger today for the 3rd time in a Wimbledon Final (also in 2014 and 2015) and the 5th consecutive time overall. The Serbian edges closer to Roger's milestone of 20 Grand Slams as he now has 16 under his belt.
The crowd was behind our Swiss star as the match took several turns but Roger just couldn't come up with the goods in the tiebreakers today. He played with passion and dictated well, but the Serbian held on and kept the pressure on to capture the win.
