Revenge was not to be on the cards as Roger Federer lost to Novak Djokovic in the finals of the 2015 Wimbledon.
Federer, who lost the 2014 Finals to Djokovic, lost again today, with Djokovic winning 7-6 (7-1) 6-7 (10-12) 6-4 6-3.
The win was the Serbian’s 3rd win at Wimbledon, and his ninth career Grand Slam.
Federer will have to wait till next year to resume his quest for a record eight Wimbledon title.
“I have to say it’s a big challenge playing against Roger,” Djokovic said. “A lot of players of my generation have looked up to him and followed his lead.”
“He makes you push your limits, work hard and win every single point.”
Federer said: “I had my chances in the first set. I got lucky to win the second, had chances in the third.
“But he was better on the bigger points. He was rock solid, I didn’t play badly myself. That’s how it goes.”
