How to Watch the 2018 Men's Wimbledon Final Online for Free

I belong at the top says Anderson

A collection of jaw-dropping rallies treated fans as two of the sports' greatest stars duked it out on the British grass.

Both players were strong on serve in the fifth set, with Nadal perhaps a nose ahead on the brilliance quotient, threading the needle with down-the-line strokes from both flanks.

Given that the last tournament he won was in Eastbourne in 2017, Djokovic has been in anything but good form.

Calls for fifth-set tiebreakers only grew louder after the suspension of Nadal-Djokovic, as the match was pushed back because Isner and Anderson's match went so long as they played out the fifth set.

Djokovic began to grow increasingly agitated as Nadal broke back to 7-7, screaming up towards his box before the Spaniard aced him for the game. Even though he didn't convert his first match point at 8-7, his efforts in chasing a Nadal drop shot did not go unnoticed. Men's finals typically last anywhere between three and five hours.

The final scorecard was 6-4 3-6 7-6 3-6 10-8 in Djokovic's favour.

"But I hope maybe somebody sits here in 10, 15 years' time and somebody asks him a question, and he says he watched me playing Wimbledon, that's one of the reasons he's here. I'm overwhelmed", he said after the match.

Djokovic, the Wimbledon champion in 2011, 2014 and 2015, will be bidding for a 13th Grand Slam title when he faces Anderson on Sunday.

"If I was on the opposite (losing) side I don't know how you take it".

Anderson's run at Wimbledon may have seemed unpredictable, writes Jack Houghton, but he deserves support in the final side markets to continue surprising.

At the semifinal on Friday, the result was a match between Anderson and Isner that took six hours and 36 minutes before eventually ending, 7-6 (6), 6-7 (5), 6-7 (9), 6-4, 26-24, in Anderson's favor. Because the match started Friday with the roof closed, it remained closed when Nadal and Djokovic took the court to resume action Saturday.

The Saturday drama delayed the start of the women's final between Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber.

Until now, that is.

It led to the unusual situation of both players leaving the court to a huge ovation - and applauding the fans in return - but without there being a clear victor or loser.

Said Nadal: "In my opinion, he deserved it". While some other tournaments are fine with matches coming down to a fifth set tiebreaker, at Wimbledon, a player must break their opponent's serve and win the set by two games.

"It's hard to pick the words", said Djokovic, who has won his past eight five-setters at Wimbledon.

Just today, when I needed it, I couldn't get it up.

It also passed the previous mark for the second longest match at a Slam of six hours and 33 minutes which Fabrice Santoro spent seeing off Arnaud Clement in the 2004 French Open. It included a 23-stroke exchange and three others of at least 11.

The total match time was 5 hours, 15 minutes, making it the second-longest semifinal match in terms of duration in Wimbledon history.

In front of the watching Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Nadal made him pay.

Nadal will regret his missed opportunity the night before, when he was in the ascendancy but passed up two set points.
