The Shoes That Won Last Night: Djokovic Tops Federer to Win Wimbledon Title

Previous / Next 1 of 9

The Joker’s back on top. After a string of losses in Grand Slam finals, Novak Djokovic has defeated Roger Federer for the 2014 Wimbledon men’s singles title. The match was everything we’ve come to expect from the epic Djokovic-Federer rivalry, with the advantage bouncing back and forth before Djokovic finished it off in the fifth set for his second Wimbledon trophy. This marks his seventh Grand Slam win, and also stops Federer short of what would have been a record eight wins at Wimbledon. And that shot you see above? Well, that’s just Djokovic celebrating by eating a chunk of the court’s grass, which was reminiscent of his 2011 win. Let’s face it; when you’re that good, you can celebrate just about any way you please. The win also bring Djokovic closer to catching up with Federer in their overall rivalry record, where the Joker now trails by just one at 18-17.
