Novak Djokovic says winning his third Wimbledon title feels just as good as his first after the Serb dispatched Roger Federer in four sets to be crowned champion again at the All England Club.

Djokovic beat Federer in the final for the second year running, preventing the Swiss from clinching a record eighth Wimbledon title with a 7-6 (7/1) 6-7 (10/12) 6-4 6-3 victory.

It was a clinical and ruthlessly efficient display from the world number one, whose nine grand slam titles lifts him above Jimmy Connors, Andre Agassi and Ivan Lendl in the all-time list of major champions.

“In the end when I finished the last point, I took out everything that was in me,” Djokovic said.

“I still obviously don’t realise what kind of achievement it is, and it’s a great achievement.

“Even though it’s the third title here, it feels like a first. Tomorrow is a new day. Now it’s a time to celebrate.

“There is no reason not to be satisfied with what I have achieved.

“I’m thrilled and very proud with all the success that I’ve had so far in the career, everything I’ve reached.

 “If you had asked me as a 14-year-old back in Serbia trying to find my way, that this is how I’m going to end up at 28, of course I would sign the deal and take it right away.”
