Who won Wimbledon 2015 men’s final? Djokovic, Federer become richer with huge prize money
Novak Djokovic wins his ninth grand slam after destroying Federer defense. At justÂ 28 years of age he is in great shape. A report sayd “There will be more. There will surely be more. He did what was beyond Andy Murray: he broke down Roger Federerâ€™s serve with the depth and ferocity of his returns and whenever he was in trouble on his own serve, he always found a way. It was a bit anti-climactic in the end. The brilliant Djokovic refused to be steered off course after losing that tie-break in the second set”.

The Wimbledon 2015 is going to be a test of nerves between two great athletes and strategists. Both are in great shape and great frame of minds. No one is going to give in a fight that is going to be nothing short of ferocious.
Djokovic and Roger Federe are both great athletes and both seem to be at the pinnacle of their careers. When it comes to Djokovic his return of serve has been impeccable too.
Two masters of the game are going to take the game of the tennis to another height by their masterly game. On the other hand, Roger Federer, who is chasing whatâ€™d be an eighth Wimbledon crown, thinks this facet of the match will be key.
While talking about him Ben Rothenberg of the New York Times says, â€œWhile the silky skills of the veteran make him one of the most aesthetic sights in sport, his serve has always been a hugely underrated weapon in his vast arsenal of talents. On Friday, Murray, who is arguably the best returner in the world, was simply unable to cope with the pace, accuracy and variation used by Federer with the ball in handâ€.
In the meantime laurels are coming from all around for the way he played against Murray in the semifinals. The Briton too goes to the extent of claiming that the Swiss looked not at the twilight of his career, but at the pinnacle of it. He went on to add that it was the best heâ€™d ever seen the 33-year-old serve:
Roger Federer has never served better against me than he did in Friday’s match on Centre Court, and I hope he never does it againâ€¦It was the 24th time we’ve played each other, and in our last match at the O2 in November I only won one game, but even then it wasn’t like I was getting aced off the court and couldn’t touch the ballâ€¦At one point on Friday I looked up at the scoreboard and it was 3-2 and he’d served nine aces, and I thought, “What’s going on?” It was his best serving performance in one of our matches and not just by a little bit, by far.â€
While Serena Williams won the Wimbledon 2015 womenâ€™s final at the ripe age of 33 years, will Roger Federer do the same? He too is 33 years and like Serena Williams is in the best shape ever.
