Who will make it big in the history of tennis?

After snuffing out Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, Roger Federer could have opened up a six grand slam lead on Novak Djokovic. 

Despite being outplayed by the 37-year-old Swiss for large parts of the knife-edge encounter, the top seed emerged victorious 7-6 (7/5), 1-6, 7-6 (7/4), 4-6, 13-12 (7/3). At four hours and 57 minutes, it was the longest Wimbledon final and settled by a final set tie-break for the first time.

Djokovic is the first man in 71 years to win the title from match points down. He is now just two behind Rafael Nadal and four off the all-time Slam record of 20 titles held by Federer.
