Wimbledon 2018: Kate Middleton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bjorn Borg attend Novak Djokovic vs Kevin Anderson final

Kevin Anderson is looking to become the first player to win Wimbledon on his debut in the title clash since Novak Djokovic claimed his first Wimbledon crown in 2011.

Novak Djokovic was back to his brutal best as he beat South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson 6-2 6-2 7-6(3) to win the Wimbledon men's singles title for the fourth time on Sunday. The Serb was back roaring into the skies in triumph as he captured a 13th Grand Slam title to end a 25-month barren run at the slams. After being kept on court for almost 11 hours during his last two wins over defending champion Roger Federer and John Isner, fatigue finally caught up with Anderson on Sunday as he failed in his bid to become the first South African man to win the Wimbledon title.

Novak Djokovic, who had been required to finish his epic semi-final with Rafael Nadal on Saturday, lost some intensity at times in the third set and saved five set points as Anderson hinted at an improbable comeback. But he forged ahead in the tiebreak and could celebrate a 13th Grand Slam title when Anderson netted a return. (Source: Reuters)

Novak Djokovic, who had suffered a dip in form and fitness in the past two years and was seeded only 12th for the championships, made only 13 unforced errors in the final as he offered more evidence that he is back to his best. (Source: Reuters)

"It feels amazing because for the first time in my life I have someone screaming 'Daddy Daddy'," Djokovic said on court as he cradled the trophy with son Stefan having joined the rest of his family and entourage. "This was my first Grand Slam final for a couple of years and there is no better place to make a comeback. Congratulations to Kevin, he has had an incredible run." (Source: Reuters)
