Roger Federer was reduced to just one tear after losing today to Novak Djokovic in a Wimbledon final epic, 67, 64, 76, 57, 64 in 3 hours and 56 minutes.
“It was a great final,” said Federer after hitting 29 aces. “I can’t believe I made it to five. It wasn’t looking good there for a while. You know going into a match with Novak it’s always going to be tough; we play athletic points. I can only say congratulations today for an amazing match, amazing tournament and well deserved.”
Federer, a father of four, turns 33 next month.
