    Andy Roddick

    Former world number one on BBC TV

    "Remember US Open 2013, Roger was seeded seven goes out to Robredo. Roger looked bad and a lot of people were writing him off. He should just play as long as he feels happy to."

  4. Novak too strong - Edberg

    Roger Federer's coach Stefan Edberg on BBC Sport: "It was a great match out there. Roger made a great comeback, I don't know how he got out of it. In the end Novak was just a little too strong.

    "He kept serving well, made a lot of returns. Roger would have needed to serve a little better."

    "What impressed me was Federer had a fair amount of break points but it was like Novak made a first serve every time. Roger is unbelievable but turning 34.

    "Nadal has shown his mortality. Novak is the best player in the world and not a close second. Novak is best player in the world and I don't see that changing."

    Andy Roddick

    Former world number one on BBC TV

    "You want to play as well as you can every match. Form in the first week is overrated, then it's based on match-ups. The reasons Federer's numbers were down today was Novak Djokovic cause and effect... He causes you to play above yourself and that had an effect on Roger."

    "Roger Federer has always had an incredible perspective on his game and his career. Because of his performance in the semi-final when he played, for me, as good as tennis as he has ever played, his expectation would have been to lift an 18th Grand Slam title. It did not work out for him but his focus will now be on the US Open."

    "We have not seen this playful side of Novak Djokovic throughout the entire tournament. French Open is in the back of his mind now.

    "Novak showed how much he appreciated the crowd when he lost at the French Open and these are the moments when you see the respect Novak deserves. It is nice to see him relaxed and open up."

    "In the Grand Slams you look at them and break them down into two events. Get through the first week, regroup and start on the second week.

    "Djokovic did not play particularly well in the first week but the big turning point was against Anderson.

    "That was when you felt he had put the hangover of the French Open behind him and was ready to focus on this tournament."

    "The first serve was going to be vital. You have to look at the numbers and how good he has been. Federer's percentage has been at 67% and he'd won 82% of those points. Today Djokovic was able to restrict him to 74%. On the second serve Djokovic was able to win half the points. That's a huge difference."

    Novak Djokovic to BBC Sport after being asked about coach Boris Becker not having the bragging rights any more:

    "No he doesn't. We will have a glass of beer or a glass of wine. It has been a long run, ever since we started working together it took some time to understand each other. He is German, I am Serbian, a significant difference. We managed to find the right chemistry. This is his trophy as much as mine."

    "How good were you today?" Sue Barker asks Djokovic. Steady, Sue. "He makes you push your limits, work hard and win every single point," says the champion. Boris Becker is laughing and clapping in the players' box, with Djokovic admitting his coach no longer has the "bragging rights".

    Roger Federer talking to BBC Sport: "Well done Novak. That is sport, we don't know the outcome. I had my chances in the first set. I got lucky to win the second, had chances in the third.

    "But he was better on the bigger points. He was rock solid, I didn't play badly myself. That's how it goes.

    "I work very hard, so do the other guys, I have a great team behind me. Without them it would not be possible. I am still very hungry and motivated. A privilege to play here, again. I would have loved to win but Novak was very good."

    "I didn't play bad myself so I can be very happy, that's how it goes," says Federer, magnanimous in defeat. Defeat has not clouded the Centre Court's love for the 17-time Grand Slam champion. They whistle, they cheer and click, click, click.

    "Roger Federer is the man. On this day, Novak was the man. It is a pleasure to watch these two greats go toe-to-toe."

    Federer with a dropper... Djokovic at full speed... but into the tape the volley goes. First blow Federer. Second point? That goes Federer's way, Djokovic butchering a forehand. The rowdy patrons lift the volume.

    Djokovic's response is clinical. Majestic serving. One spectators crosses his fingers, hoping the good fortune fairies sprinkle their stardust on Federer, but the Swiss fails to make his own luck. Djokovic a game away from the championship.

    "I am speechless. That was ridiculous. Roger played a fantastic point. Djokovic comes back with even better stuff. He moves so well and on top of that there is the accuracy.

    "Roger did not applaud that last point, but inside he must be wondering what he has to do to win a point here."

    Federer upping the ante, stepping in from the baseline... Djokovic slipping at the back of the court - backhand wide. Second break point Federer.

    Danger averted as Djokovic wallops a forehand for deuce. Time to start watching through the lattice of the fingers.

    Is there a chink in Djokovic's steely resistance? Backhand into the net. Break point Federer. A nervy baseline slug-fest... Djokovic turning defence into attack with a crackerjack of a forehand. We're back to deuce. Oof.

  173. Deuce on Djokovic's serve

    Djokovic 7-6 (7-1) 2-2 Federer*

    Spectators groan in unison whenever the Swiss blooters a backhand. Djokovic pushing back the boundaries, racing to the tramline and magically curling a forehand winner onto the paint. Centre Court silent, they don't think the favourite has much up his sleeve, but hang on there...

    Djokovic screws a backhand wide. Federer a point from deuce. The Serb spoons a forehand beyond the baseline...

    Easy points for Federer on his own serve, those aces in his back pocket timely. But a slapped volley into the tape for 40-30 sows some seeds of doubt before the second seed pulls through to level.

    However hard the Swiss tries to hit the Serb, the punches just come back harder. Federer forced into a hurry along the baseline such is Djokovic's stiff resistance. A hold to 15 and it's easy-peasy for the defending champ.

    Whispers ripple around Centre. "He only had 59% of his first serves in," says one elderly lady, pursing her lips a la Les Dawson. "It was 85% in first set against Murray."

    Federer holding firm in this game, though. The serve? Solid. The forehand? Crisp. The volley? Perfection. A hold to love

    Where is that purple patch that Roger Federer was mining in his semi-final?

    He flops a lazy forehand into the net under little pressure for 30-0 and cuffs long to cede control of the game. A popping ace from Djokovic between those two points. A hold to love for the Serb.

    A hush around Centre as the pair restore lost liquid during the changeover. No-one quite knows which way this match is going to swing. Both serving with aplomb. Djokovic's movement minimal - ace, ace - 30-0.

    But a glorious passing shot from Federer mid-court has Centre purring. That is all the Federer fans can admire, though, as Djokovic secures a regulation hold.
