Serbian press crown Djokovic 'King of Tennis'


The Serbian press on Monday proclaimed Novak Djokovic's "king of tennis" with the "heart of a hero" after claiming his fifth Wimbledon title beating eight-time champion Roger Federer.

The 32-year-old Serbian saved two match points as he took his Grand Slam tally to 16, four off Federer's overall record in the longest final in the tournament's history on Sunday.

"Novak, King of Tennis," read the daily paper front-page headline.

"The fifth Crown for the King," echoed the Vecernje Novosti paper.

"He certainly did not play his best tennis but he knew how to act on the key moments of his main weapon, his mental strength," Blic commented.

Djokovic, contrary to his habits, "did not show any emotion during the whole match" which lasted 4 hours and 57 minutes, it said.
