Longing for Grace and Poise
Last Sunday, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic played 4 hours and 57 minutes, the longest Wimbledon singles final in history. The match ended with a winning tiebreak by Djokovic, 32, in the fifth set. Afterward, he praised his nearly 38-year-old opponent, saying, “Roger really inspires me with his effort at his age.” It was an enormous effort by both gentlemen regardless of their age.
