Marathon man finds the sprint fin­ish

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Wimbledon -

As you might ex­pect with an age gap of al­most six years, it was ul­ti­mately Djokovic who was able to bet­ter last the dis­tance. Fed­erer’s tac­tic of all-out at­tack in the fifth set so nearly worked, but it did be­tray his knowl­edge that if the match became a slugfest there would be only one win­ner. The sta­tis­tics showed that when ral­lies went longer than eight shots, it was Djokovic who ended up on top – win­ning 37 com­pared to Fed­erer’s tally of 25.

Win: No­vak Djokovic tastes the grass
