An amazing match: Novak Djokovic beats Roger Federer 76 16 76 46 13-12 (3) to win 2019 Wimbledon . Almost 5 hours. Djokovic rarely gives up, at all, especially at the majors. Now, 15 Slams. One of the best, ever.

12-12, tiebreaker. Historic. Both Federer and Djokovic have to keep calm, if they can, that is.

Roger Federer breaks it, a forehand, crosscourt. Now up 8-7 in the 5th at Wimbledon. Will serve it out. Not easy. Could do it

Federer grabs the 4th, now tied. Going into the 5th. Perfect. 'While many people fans will be screaming for joy for Federer, either on the Centre Court, or on TV, still, Djokovic will...'

Djokovic wins the 3rd, 7-6(4). Now up 2-1. It will be difficult for Federer to come back in the final. He has to raise his game, way up high. Will fight, though. Novak is calm and lethal

Federer was frustrated, some errors. Finally, Novak very steady, confidence came back. His backhand is on fire, deep & sharp. 5-1

Djokovic versus Federer: Can Novak defeat Roger once again? They have split sets, now in the 3rd. 2-2. Tied. 5 sets? Fascinating.

Halep said that during the match point, her legs were soft, rubbery, on her legs. But she won anyway. Very pleased

Well, perhaps that was her best ever: Simona Halep stuns Serena Williams 6-2 6-2 to finally win Wimbledon. It took her less than an hour, very quick, not afraid, going for the lines & depth. Now she has won RG and Wimby. So much better the than 2 yrs ago. Could be No. 1 again.

Novak Djokovic will face Roger Federer. ND played well to d Bautista Agut in 4. Djokovic & Federer have played 3 times at Wimbledon, with Novak winning 2. Fed loves grass, but Novak leads him 25–22, so the Serbian is slightly favored. ND: ‘I have a chance to fight for a trophy’

Roger Federer knocks out Rafa Nadal in the semis at Wimbledon, 7-6(3) 16 63 64. Nadal had a BP, missed it into the net with his BH. RF another MP, Nadal nails his FH down the line. Another MP for Fed, but RN hit a BH passing shot. Finally, huge FH by Federer. Finally. Gigantic

5-4 in the 4th now, for Federer, to serve it out. So much tension, for Roger, and Nadal, too. RF, so deep, on the line, second match points, RN hits twisting serves, ace. So intense

Federer is serving terrific, especially at the net, and his cracking forehand, Wins the 3rd set, 6-3. Clearly, Nadal has to re-change it.

That was quick: Nadal steps up, wins the 2nd set, 6-1, tied, and then Federer raised his game again, now up 4-2. Very solid, lots of depth, too. On fire. Rafa dropped down, now back up. Only 1 break
