WIMBLEDON 2014
RESILIENCE A MICROCOSM OF FEDERER’S JOURNEY
Wimbledon, Great Britain
by Josh Meiseles | 06.07.2014

“In many ways, Roger Federer’s resilience and determination in the 2014 Wimbledon final epitomised his journey over the past year.

Despite succumbing to rival and top seed Novak Djokovic 6-7(7), 6-4, 7-6(4), 5-7, 6-4 after three hours and 56 minutes, Federer exhibited the guile and fight of a seven-time champion, refusing to wilt under the weight of the Serb’s sublime serving display.

Magnificent Match, FEDERER EXPRESS!
