    Points won by each set: | 36-30, 40-45, 36-37, 35-33 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    19 % Djokovic – 30 of 155
    29 % Federer – 40 of 137

    It was their 42nd meeting (21-21), including 14 at majors – it’s a record (Djokovic leads 8-6)… The match began with a 3-hour delay due to rain. The Serbian saved plenty of break points (many of them after quite long rallies), the most important were two at 3:4 in the 3rd set. In the 4th set he was serving to win 6-2, then saved three break points at 5:4 to convert his first match point after 3 hours 20 minutes. The same scoreline in a Grand Slam final occurred in 1969 as Rod Laver defeated John Newcombe at Wimbledon. Thanks to that victory, Djokovic has secured himself No. 1 at the end of this season.

    Djokovic’s route to his 10th Grand Slam title:
    1 Joao Souza 6-1, 6-1, 6-1
    2 Andreas Haider-Maurer 6-4, 6-1, 6-2
    3 Andreas Seppi 6-3, 7-5, 7-5
    4 Roberto Bautista 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3
    Q Feliciano Lopez 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(2)
    S Marin Cilic 6-0, 6-1, 6-2
    W Roger Federer 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4

    Winning three or more majors in a season in the Open Era:
    Novak Djokovic – 2011 & 2015; Rafael Nadal – 2010; Roger Federer – 2004, 2006-2007; Mats Wilander – 1988; Jimmy Connors – 1974; Rod Laver – 1969 (won all four)
    Players with three or more years as Nos. 1 in the end of seasons:
    6 – Pete Sampras (1993-1998)
    5 – Jimmy Connors (1974-1978), Federer (2004-2007 & 2009)
    4 – John McEnroe (1981-1984), Ivan Lendl (1985-1987 & 1989), Djokovic (2011-2012 & 2014-2015)
