Following a five-set match on Sunday, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic has defeated Swiss player Roger Federer in the Wimbledon men’s final. The final proved to be the longest in Wimbledon’s history, lasting four hours and 55 minutes and seeing 422 points scored. This title marks Djokovic 16th Grand Slam title overall, while Federer holds 20.

Djokovic came into the tournament as the top-seeded men’s player and bested Federer, who was seeded second, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 13-12 (3). The game marked the first time Wimbledon utilized a final set tiebreak, after introducing tiebreaks in last year’s semifinal. This is the third time Djokovic has defeated the Swiss player at Wimbledon, with the two previously facing off in 2014 and 2015.

Saturday’s women’s final saw Simona Halep of Romania defeat Serena Williams for the championship.
