The men’s final of the 2019 Wimbledon Championship was one for the ages.
This final of the men’s bracket was four hours and 57 minutes long, making it the longest men’s final in Wimbledon history with 68 games played, 422 points earned and 35 aces recorded.
With his fifth Wimbledon title, Djokovic now sits with 16 career Grand Slam titles. He’s four behind Federer and two behind Rafael Nadal on the all-time career Grand Slam title rankings.
In the women’s bracket, seventh-seeded Simona Halep defeated 11th-seeded Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2 to win her first ever title at Wimbledon and second career Grand Slam. Halep made only three unforced errors in the women’s final.
Halep denied Williams of her 24th career Grand Slam title. Williams’ 23 Grand Slam singles titles is second all-time behind Margret Court, who notched 24 Grand Slams in her illustrious career.
The final Grand Slam of the season is the 2019 U.S. Open, which starts on August 26 and concludes on September 8.
