LONDON -- Novak Djokovics large lead in the rollicking Wimbledon final was slipping away, due in no small part to Roger Federers regal presence and resurgent play. No man has won tennis oldest major tournament more often than Federer, and he was not about to let it go easily. Djokovic went from being a point from victory in the fourth set to suddenly caught in the crucible of a fifth, and knew all too well that he had come up short in recent Grand Slam title matches. Steeling himself when he so desperately needed to, Serbias Djokovic held on for a 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 victory after nearly four hours of momentum shifts Sunday to win Wimbledon for the second time -- and deny Switzerlands Federer what would have been a record eighth championship at the All England Club. I could have easily lost my concentration in the fifth and just handed him the win. But I didnt, and thats why this win has a special importance to me, mentally, Djokovic said. I managed to not just win against my opponent, but win against myself, as well, and find that inner strength. Cradling his trophy during the post-match ceremony, Djokovic addressed Federer directly, saying: I respect your career and everything you have done. And thank you for letting me win today. Even Federer had to smile at that line. Truth is, Djokovic deserved plenty of credit for figuring out a way to raise his Grand Slam total to seven titles and allows him to overtake Rafael Nadal at No. 1 in the rankings. Novak deserved it at the end, clearly, said Federer, who hadnt been to a Grand Slam final since winning his 17th major at Wimbledon in 2012, but it was extremely close. Federer, who turns 33 next month, won 88 of 89 service games through the semifinals and produced 29 aces in the final, but Djokovic broke him four times. Federer went to the net aggressively, only to see Djokovic zoom more than a dozen passing shots past him. And with most of the Centre Court crowd of about 15,000 raucously cheering for Federer, the 27-year-old Djokovic kept believing in himself. That part might have been the most difficult, given that Djokovic lost his past three major finals, and five of his past six, including against Andy Murray at Wimbledon last year, and against Nadal at the French Open last month. Started doubting, of course, a little bit, Djokovic said. I needed this win a lot. Boris Becker, the three-time Wimbledon champion who began coaching Djokovic this season, called the new champion the biggest competitor and praised his sense of not giving up, giving it always another try. It couldve gone either way in the fifth set, said Becker, whose former rival as a player, Stefan Edberg, coaches Federer. Novak finds another way. He digs deep and finds another way. Djokovic built a 5-2 lead in the fourth set and served for the championship at 5-3. But Federer broke there for the first time all afternoon, smacking a forehand winner as Djokovic slipped and fell on a patch of brown dirt. Djokovic took a nastier tumble in the second set, hurting his left leg and prompting the first of two medical timeouts; he got his right calf massaged by a trainer in the fifth. With Federer serving at 5-4 in the fourth, he double-faulted to 30-all, then netted a backhand for 30-40 -- handing Djokovic a match point. Federer hit a 118 mph (190 kph) serve that was called out, but he challenged the ruling, and the replay showed the ball touched a line for an ace. That was part of Federers five-game run to force a fifth set. It would be another 42 minutes until Djokovic again stood so close to triumph. Cant believe I made it to five, Federer said. Wasnt looking good there for a while. In truth, after so much drama, the ending was anticlimactic. Trailing 5-4 but serving, Federer missed four groundstrokes, pushing a backhand into the net on Djokovics second match point. Victory his, Djokovic knelt on the most hallowed tennis court in the world, plucked a blade of grass and shoved it in his mouth, just as he did after his 2011 Wimbledon title. He dedicated this victory to his pregnant fiancee and our future baby, and to Jelena Gencic, his first tennis coach, who died last year. This is the best tournament in the world, the most valuable one, Djokovic said. The first tennis match that I ever (saw) in my life, when I was 5 years old, was Wimbledon, and that image stuck (in) my mind. Cheap Ted Williams Jersey .

Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . -- The Oakland Raiders added a veteran presence to their young receiving group by signing free agent James Jones to a three-year contract Monday.There was something about Saturdays 2-1 win over Real Salt Lake that felt more like a therapeutic breakthrough than a victory. Of course the three points against a largely first choice RSL team was monumental given the opportunity that presented itself when their chief playoff rivals surrendered a two-goal lead in Toronto, and lost their captain in the process. But when Pedro Morales was denied on a first half stoppage time penalty, the Whitecaps would have had 15 long minutes to reflect on the what if of that moment. Then 15 minutes later, they fell behind from a corner. At that point, the missed penalty and another glorious Morales chance created by Sebastian Fernandez, could have easily infected their young minds. Their recent frame of reference on losing would have included a terrific start in Portland erased by a succession of small mistakes. A week earlier in Dallas, Vancouver also had a tidy opening, but a fluke goal sucker punched them into game chasing mode. They eventually did pull even, only to again get undone by some simple errors. By MLS standards, the Whitecaps are a young side...not just in age, but in league games played. To say they are fragile is perfectly fair. The process of reversing that mentality has to start somewhere. Saturdays incredible pendulum swing of emotion between expansion cousins could be viewed as just that moment. Portland will be wondering how they allowed a Toronto team backk into a game that they were in control of, while also erasing the horrific Will Johnson injury from their minds and then figuring out how to get on without their captain for the last four games.ddddddddddddThe plight of the Whitecaps skipper was entirely different on Saturday at BC Place. He started slowly, but had a terrific opportunity that he probably would have finished in April. At times he looked like a player running on fumes while being asked by his manager to be better. It was as if the two glorious first half misses pushed him on, rather than set him back. The best evidence that an early season, fresh Pedro Morales was back came in the form of a 60-yard fizzed turf trimming ball to Nic Mezquida that had the crowd buzzing. He wasnt alone on the bounce back front. Kekuta Mannehs role in the winning goal, and a rampaging run moments later, reminded everyone in the stadium of the young mans ability...one that seemed to vanish over the last few months. Whitecaps supporters themselves must have felt a huge weight off their shoulders too. It was just the Caps third-ever win in September after 17 attempts. If momentum is the most difficult thing for a team to manufacture, then the Whitecaps somehow, against all of Saturdays long odds managed to achieve it. Now they need to try and hold onto it for dear life. If they can, we may look back on Sep. 27 as a true turning point in the young clubs fortunes.
