Djokovic outmuscles Federer to retain Wimbledon crown

London: Defending champion Novak Djokovic produced a perfect blend of power and precision to beat seven-time champion Roger Federer in a four-set thriller to retain the Wimbledon title on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Serbian overcame Federer 7-6 (7-1), 6-7 (10-12), 6-4, 6-3 in a pulsating finale that lasted two hours and 56 minutes.

Although second seed Federer produced a spirited fightback to clinch the second set, Djokovic outperformed the Swiss maestro in the next two sets to bag his ninth Grand Slam title.

With the win, Djokovic also claimed his third title at Wimbledon and has extended his 2015 winning tally to 48. (ANI)
