      Djokovic beats Federer in Wimbledon final


      LONDON (AP) -- Novak Djokovic won his second Wimbledon title and denied Roger Federer his record eighth by holding off the Swiss star in five sets Sunday.


      Djokovic wasted a 5-2 lead in the fourth set but held on for a 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 victory that returns the Serbian player to the No. 1 ranking.


      Djokovic had a match point at 5-4 in the fourth set, but Federer saved that with an ace and forced a fifth set.


      In the last set, Djokovic broke with the help of four mistakes by Federer to seal the win.
