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.”
