 It was the third time Djokovic had saved two match points to beat Federer at a Grand Slam (also 2010 US Open semi-finals and 2011 US Open semi-finals).
The last time a Wimbledon men's champion had saved match points in the final was 1948. American Robert Falkenburg beat John Bromwich of Australia 7-5 0-6 6-2 3-6 7-5, after being three match points down.


 It was a historic tie-break, but the end result, Djokovic retrieving everything and forcing Federer to play at his best, was the same result as the Serbian won the third tie-break of the match.



Most Men's Grand Slam titles won.

Rafael Nadal  -  18
Novak Djokovic   -  16
Pete Samprass  -  14
Roy Emerson  -  12


 The Swiss had been seeking to become the oldest Grand Slam champion of the Open era but instead found himself part of a different record as the match time surpassed the Wimbledon record of four hours 48 minutes play of the 2008 final he lost to Rafael Nadal.




 Roger Federer reacts to his defeat



I will try to forget! It was a great match. It was long, it had everything. I had my chances. I thought we played some great tennis so in a way I am happy with my performance. Novak was great. Congratulations man, that was crazy. Well done.

On being a 37-year-old Wimbledon finalist:

I hope I give some other people to believe at 37 it's not over yet. I feel great. Obviously it's come to take some time to recover physically too. It's all good. I couldn't give more. I gave it all I had and I still stand.

On his family:

They won't be excited with the plate. They'd rather take the golden thing!

 Well, I think this was if not the most exciting and thrilling final I was ever part then definitely top two or three against one of the greatest players of all time, Roger, who I respect a lot. Unfortunately in these kind of matches one of the players have to lose. We both had our chances and it's quite unreal to be two match points down and come back. It's a bit strange to play a tie-break on 12-all as well.
