  • I was ready to pull my hair out watching this match. These two guys NEVER make it easy. I feel so blessed to have been able to witness the greatest era of men's tennis ever!

  • 318 peeps that have a tiny mind

  • Noles NEVER won a single SET on strength of his "RETURN OF 1ST SERVE PASSING SHOT WINNERS"........which was the OOOONLY way any MAN EVER WON WIMBLEDON before 2001-03 ish

  • Noles great but NOT HALF THE returner that Andre is, and he would've LOST 0-6 / 1-6 / 0-6 in 1992 to Ivanisevic serving 130+ into the REAL - LOW BOUNCING - SLICK grass with PREHISTORIC strings and equipment compared to today, (I know I've used BOTH). NOLE couldn't even hit topspin with Andre's equipment.

  • REASON THAT NOOOOOOBODY EVER WATCHED A CONNORS BORG MATCH, while eeeeeveryone watched Mcenroe - Becker-Edberg-Sampras. Even a HACKER like PAT CASH had a "chance", versus top 5 HISTORY LEGEND LIKE LENDL (Wimb-87), if he put on MORE TALENT just for that day.....TALENT-SKILL won the day it SHOULD BE. Thats why Grass was named 'great equalizer".

  • Roger won more points period and WAY more memorable-web gem MAGIC. If your honest you'll admit you can NOT REMEMBER even 5 points 'WON" by Nole. Neither can I or the GLOBE....AND TENNIS IS RUINED with unwatchable WOMENS TENNIS TACTICS AND ENTERTAINMENT LEVEL.

  • this match makes me so sad

  • I still get tense watching these highlights in 2020

  • Love Novak but fed deserved this time

  • Federer is the greatest front runner of all time, he's like the tennis version of the Warriors. Nadal is the GOAT

  • Djoker is so good

  • still can't forget this...

  • Such lukewarm commentary when Djokovic did well throughout the match as opposed to the semifinal, which consisted of the commentators constantly showing energy when both players did well. I don't know why some people dislike Djokovic, but for commentators to show it is disgusting.

  • 12:35 what is trying to say that he is the GOAT?

  • The match is surreal. It makes you want to watch tennis again. Federer-Djokovic rivalry lives on.

  • Un balazo dolía menos.

  • rule change?..

  • I wanted Federer to win... but damn djokovic deserved this... in fact both of them deserved it but someone had to win.... hands down best Wimbledon final ever

  • That last forehand shank tho 😂

  • Great match

  • djokovic, puta que jugai feo wn oh

  • federer se canso de ganar ala nena de djokovic federer es el uno indiscutido aguante federer es el crak mundial no hay con que darle a esa bestia

  • Lance Armstrong

  • Federer y Djokovic son un otro planeta..buen tennis insuperables..maestros

  • If size were everything, then elephant would have been the 'King' of the jungle. If number of slams were everything, Serena should be the 'King' of the jungle. Djokovic is an absolute beast and would most likely end up with the largest # grand slams. His legend though may not achieve the same stature and respect from the tennis fraternity, as would Roger's and Rafa's........!! One could say, Roger and Rafa, triggered the 'BIG BANG' and Novak mastered evolution.

  • This has got to be Novak's worst performance in a slam ever, yet he still won. Shame on Federer.

  • Del potro was the last men to win a grand slam final after go down 1-2 sets, since there are 39 straight matches with no come back. Federer have 2 match points to broke that straek YOLO.


  • iron maiden ... the mumber of de best 40.15 the new song

  • Still fucking fuming about this loss. Federer could have finally beaten both Nadal and Djokovic in a Grand Slam. He could have snapped a 4 loss losing streak. He could have finally beaten Djokovic since 2012. But nooooo. Had to make some errors and now it's 5 losses in a row.

  • Djokovic's backhand was lethal as it never lets him down throughout the match. Novak eating grass to celebrate his victory over Federer was so cool. I never saw anybody doing that.

  • 40-15 😢

  • Djokovic had to fight crowd at Wimbledon and this 3 guys from ESPN. Just pathetic cheering for Rodger. "Sure he is most beautiful player who ever played this game" J.M. but he lost, so suck it you haters. Please post below your excuses for Federer.

    • Yes!! I'm not the only one! You sensed the clear bias as well from Chris, Patrick, and John! Novak wins again!!

  • Pistol pete is best ever 14 slams in 14 years should of won 17

  • There's too many GOAT arguments now. Here's a simple checklist for GOAT: Basketball: Jordan (No. This isn't debatable. Only argument that can be made is for Abdul Jabbar NOT Lebron) Football: Tom Brady or Jerry Rice depending on if you want to put Tom Brady into QB category and Jerry as overall player/playmaker Soccer: Pele, Messi, or Ronaldo Swimming: Phelps Tennis: Roger Federer. Arguments could be made for Nadal and Djokovic but how many grad slams from just French Open for Nadal? 12? Also Djokovic and Nadal are both younger than Federer by 4-5 years and Fed had MATCH POINT twice in this match. So for Sustained excellence since 1999 to 2019 you have to give it to Fed

  • instead of Grand Slam, Federer's got Grand Slap

  • The best player on this day did not win. It's that simple.

  • When push comes to shove and everything is on the line, Djoko continuously makes Federer look like a club player and makes his fans look like idiots. That fat skank pointing her finger up suggesting that Federer was #1 and had this match in his pocket is priceless and is the perfect example.

    • @Redskins win win What gets me is that all the fedtards say it's all about age but he's been having this problem for years. Even if you're feddy's age, what the heck, your on your on serve and should be able to finish off the match. Yeah, every long now and then things just happen and you lose, but I've never seen a player at Federer's level screw up so many times at match point, and he only does it against players in the top 10 who aren't intimidated by him and fight back. He is just so mentally fragile when compared to the other top players- especially against Djokovic because Djoko is one of those extremely rare players who actually thrives in pressure situations. Federer won so much in his early career because he bullied his opponents. Most of the MAJORS won by Federer back then were against good players but not great players, so he rarely had to face pressure situations. Rafa and Djoko changed that, and it's the inability to win under pressure rather than age that's seen him struggle to win MAJORS over the course of the last 8 years or so.

    • this aint the first time fed boy choked.Didnt fed boy choke against del po indian wells last year with double match points and Theim this year at indians well on his serve only to lose. 201o and 11 us open fed boy had triple match points against novak only to lose

    • @Iris Fryer That is possible, but my understanding was that, at the time, Roger was at 40-15 and had 2 match points on his racket. Whatever the case, and judging from Roger's history of blowing match points against Djoko, it came off as being a very self-assured gesture that Federer had this match in his pocket. Just not a smart move from this lady, in my opinion.

    • I think she meant Roger had one more point to win when he had match point; they should have shown her afterwards. She was probably sobbing, lol.

  • He ewnt vegan, that's why he won :D


  • Fed is the current Goat but move over and make room for the New and Incoming Goatkovic 🐐❤️🏆

  • Novak, please reduce the 'ball bouncing' prior to serving! Well done.

  • Federer choked on his two match points. Long match and lazy footwork caused the GOAT another grand slam final against Djokovic.

  • This is definitely not the highlight at all. It can be renamed as Federer's winning points and Federer's errors.

  • Sorry Roger, Novak is the best

  • Just as I obviously thought. Came here to see all the salty, mad, insecure Fedtards not giving Novak credit. LOL! Deal with it Fedtards. Roger lost. Nole won. Plain and simple. Get over yourselves. lol. This is the 3rd time that Nole has done this to Roger. Call it luck the first time, but you don't save match points 3 times over without skill and mental toughness playing a role. Roger knew this and he was psyched out by Nole's nerves of steel to the point where the match points against were already won mentally for Nole and lost mentally by Roger. This actually causes Fed to not play the biggest of points at the level that he does apart from those points. We had seen that against Nadal time and time again throughout his career as well.

  • All 3 are great but Federer is heads and shoulders above the other two because how he has reinvented his game and continues to compete against the very best even though they are 5 to 6 years younger then he. I really doubt either Djokovic or Nadal will be in grand slam finals in their late 30s.

    • So Fedtarded. Roger played in the weak sauce era and racked up many of his gs titles before rafa and nole came along. nice try. you fail fedtard.

  • The best of the all time..! Invictus djoko

  • tennis is such a beta sport

  • How do you not show jokers running forehand angle to save match point? That was arguably one of his greatest shots ever

  • Most of the points in the highlights show how most of Federer's points were off of winners....and most of Djokovic's points were off of unforced errors from Roger.....pretty much what happened in that godforsaken service game for Federer in the end.

  • Two legends at play

  • This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

  • Federer played better than Novak in almost every measurable statistic in this match, but he still lost. Well that's tennis for you...

  • 12:17 Andy Roddick 2009 --> Karma?

  • Some one correct me please, im kinda watching here Federer lost because so many no forced errores he had? Novak seems (to me) to be a more lazy player than the others, i mean, Federer outclass everyone with his tricks and shots but, this time he had so many errors, not sure if thats why he really lost.

  • Good accurate description. 'OUTLASTS", thats the oooonly way novack has ever ever beaten Fed.....or anyone else for that matter. Even Rafa 7 murray are FAR MORE talented play ...than nole...and lets not EVEN talk overhead......ooooooof's a WHAT NOT TO DO film for my students

  • This is the time third where Federer losses to Djokovic in GS where he shoulda or coulda win. Twice at USO semis and now at Wimbledon finals. Clearly this one is gonna hurt more than the two since this was his second favorite surface.

  • Ugh!! I’m still dwelling Federer’s loss!!! I hope he gets the chance to win next week and retire with 10 wimbledon titles!

  • the grass isn't even fresh at a winbledon final? someone needs to be fired.
