Roger Federer has said that Novak Djokovic put in a "rock solid" performance to win a third Wimbledon title.
The world number one beat the seven-time champion in four sets to defend the title, giving him the ninth Grand Slam win of his career.
After the match, the second seed told 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."
Djokovic now has 20 wins from his 40 matches against Federer.
