Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer to win his third Wimbledon title on Sunday. The pair played a hotly contested match, with 28-year-old Djokovic prevailing 7-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-3 to snag a back-to-back Wimbledon trophy.

This is the second year in a row the pair have faced off during the tournament’s final match. Last year, Djokovic beat Federer in five sets to win his second Wimbledon title. This year’s final was a highly anticipated rematch between the top two seeded players in the world.

This is Djokovic’s ninth grand slam win. 33-year-old Federer was aiming for an unprecedented eighth Wimbledon title and 18th grand slam trophy.

On Saturday, Serena Williams snagged her 21st grand slam title after defeating Garbiñe Muguruza in straight sets in the women’s singles final.
