Photos from Wimbledon: Day 13
Each day during Wimbledon, we'll bring you exclusive photography from Anita Aguilar, who is covering the tournament for TENNIS.com. Steve Tignor provides the captions.
Henman Hill was turned into a Swiss Alp for the men’s final.
It was a star-studded Royal Box, but Bradley Cooper (with camera) kept his focus squarely on himself(ie).
Chances are Roger Federer won this point. Will and Kate were firmly on Team Rog.
Chances are Federer was about to lose this point. The woman in the front row can’t bring herself to look.
Federer on his invisible horse. If he’s lost a step at 32, I don’t know which one it was.
Federer conducts with his backhand. His slice brought errors from Djokovic, but also sat up on approaches and made for some easy passes.
He made a furious comeback from 2-5 down in the fourth set to push the match to a fifth, and into classic territory.
Great Britain’s James Keothavong had it all under control in his first Wimbledon men’s final.
Djokovic managed to move the way he always does without losing his footing too often.
After a scratchy two weeks...
...he was ready to do whatever it took on Sunday.
The audience wasn’t on Djokovic’s side, but he said that didn’t bother him. “I was also hearing the positive support I got from the crowd, which I thought was not a small number.”

In a month’s time, Djokovic has gone from the depths of his final-round loss in Paris to the heights of his second Wimbledon win.
After all of that, the emotion came out in tears, from both men.
Federer said he thought his performance over the fortnight points to “more great things in the future.”
A post-match stroll with his daughters, Myla and Charlene, brightened his mood.
It was all a bit much to take for the eclectic Royal Boxers, including (from left) the Duke of Kent, David and Victoria Beckham, Larry Ellison, Stan Smith, ATP chief Chris Kermode, Samuel L. Jackson, the man who plays Thor, and Ken Rosewall.
Djokovic dedicated the win to his fiancé, Jelena Ristic, his late coach, Jelena Gencic, his family and his team. When it was over, he climbed into the stands to share a bear hug with coach Boris Becker (left).
