With the top two players in the world facing off against one another, the Wimbledon Men's Final took place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London, England on Sunday (July 3).

Turning into quite the heated battle after a runaway start, Novak Djokovic ended up holding onto his big lead to top Rafael Nadal in four sets by a score of 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.

The top-ranked Serbian jumped out to a quick lead, as he breezed through the first two sets before his Spaniard competitor found new life while taking the third set in dominant fashion.

With famous faces including U.S Open golf champion Rory McIlroy, along with actor Alan Rickman and race car driver Jenson Button watching on, Djokovic ended up regaining his composure while claiming the fourth set for the coveted title.
