London, July 6 : Novak Djokovic  after going down 1-0 to Master of tennis Roger Fedrer had won by 3-2. Novak Djokovic stood holding the surprisingly heavy winner’s trophy, the silver, two-handled urn presented to the man who wins the Wimbledon singles title. Underneath his fingers, Roger Federer’s name had been etched as many times as anyone else’s.

His 6-7(7), 6-4, 7-6(4), 5-7, 6-4 victory over Federer came after Djokovic led two sets to one and held a 5-2 lead in the fourth set. But Federer does not give away Wimbledon championships easily, losing just once in his eight previous finals appearances.

Last year, Djokovic, 27, lost to Andy Murray, who was buoyed by the hopes of Britain to become the first British men’s winner in 77 years. Djokovic proceeded to lose to Rafael Nadal at both last year’s United States Open and this spring’s French Open.

Federer will rise to a spot to No. 3 in the world rankings. The victory will lift Djokovic past Nadal and back into the No. 1 ranking that he last held in September 2013.

“It was a great final, can’t believe I made it to five,” Federer told the Centre Court fans after the match. “It wasn’t looking good there for a while. I was hoping, who knows, it would maybe be enough.”
