Defending champion Novak Djokovic won a third Wimbledon title and a ninth Grand Slam crown on Sunday, shattering Roger Federer's bid for a record eighth All England Club triumph.

World number one Djokovic won 7-6 (7/1), 6-7 (10/12), 6-4, 6-3 adding the Wimbledon title to the Australian Open he captured in January.

For 33-year-old Federer, it was a bitter end to his bid to become the oldest Wimbledon champion of the Open Era.

The 17-time major winner has now gone three years since his last Grand Slam triumph.
