Welcome once again to Wimbledon, we have tennis for you right through

:00:44.:00:49.

the evening, here, but the big story here on men's finals day, is

:00:49.:00:53.

that a new champion has been crowned. Novak Djokovic has dreamed

:00:53.:00:57.

of winning Wimbledon and he did it today on his first Championship

:00:57.:01:03.

point. Beating the two time winner here, Rafael Nadal. Not only has

:01:03.:01:06.

Djokovic become the Wimbledon champion, he has become the world

:01:07.:01:11.

number one as well. He has won 48 matches out of 49 this year. But

:01:11.:01:18.

this is the one that meant the most. This is when he realised, as a

:01:18.:01:23.

youngster dreaming of this moment, now it was reality. The wonderful

:01:23.:01:27.

moment for Novak Djokovic who is the man of men's tennis right now.

:01:27.:01:32.

Nobody thinking about him before the Championships. Everyone talking

:01:32.:01:35.

about Rafa, Roger and maybe Andy. This man came through and he

:01:35.:01:43.

produced awesome tennis in the final, to win it in four sets. 6-4,

:01:43.:01:48.

6-4. Emotional scenes from his family and for Novak. I am not sure

:01:48.:01:53.

he will be letting that go for some time. So that was the Tory on

:01:53.:01:56.

Centre Court earlier. But we are heading back there now, because it

:01:56.:02:00.

is the mixed doubles final. It is with serve, if you have been

:02:00.:02:07.

watching on BBC One. We have only missed one game. It is two games to

:02:07.:02:17.
:02:17.:02:19.

one to Jurgen Melzer and Iveta Both This one of the final finals.

:02:19.:02:27.

--. There is a boys' doubles taking place and gentleman's invitational

:02:28.:02:37.
:02:38.:02:53.

doubles final, but here we have I am interested to see the level of

:02:53.:02:58.

the two women out Vesnina a top ten doubles player. She is the second

:02:58.:03:03.

ranked Russian in doubles. I remember the words of Todd

:03:03.:03:08.

Woodbridge, and he said he feels so often it depends on the level of

:03:08.:03:11.

the woman, the performance of the woman that decides the outcome

:03:11.:03:17.

these kind of matches, so we will be keeping quite a good eye on

:03:17.:03:27.
:03:27.:03:51.

Melzer tries to break down Vesnina. It made it very difficult for bup

:03:51.:03:56.

to get across there. If you watch Mahesh Bhupathi. Think it, I think

:03:56.:04:01.

he has extra long arms. I think that has been the suck ret of his

:04:01.:04:05.

success. You look at the extension he gets on his arms. I just think

:04:05.:04:13.

he has very long arms. I think he is helped by that particular fiscal

:04:13.:04:18.

attitude -- attribute. I will keep an eye on that! He couldn't reach

:04:18.:04:28.
:04:28.:04:29.

This is good from Iveta Benesova. She was nervous in the semifinal,

:04:29.:04:34.

particularly as they tried to close it out. It is a very big deal for

:04:34.:04:42.

her to be in a Grand Slam final. First break opportunity for Melzer

:04:42.:04:49.

and Benesova. Oh, it is Mahesh Bhupathi who fluffs his line and

:04:49.:04:59.
:04:59.:05:02.

It has a very Czech feel to it, this year's Wimbledon, with Petra

:05:02.:05:12.
:05:12.:05:22.

Kvitova winning the womenle's Singles. Boomer for Melzer.

:05:22.:05:32.
:05:32.:05:36.

I was watching the mens' final earlier, the Czechs could bag four

:05:36.:05:46.
:05:46.:06:07.

Wimbledon. It gives us a nostalgic feel. Russia seems to have replaced

:06:07.:06:17.
:06:17.:06:19.

them. Hell ha was keen to remind me Melzer is an Austrian running the

:06:19.:06:25.

show at the moment. Benesova played a big role in their run through and

:06:25.:06:29.

he lost his doubles quarterfinal. He was defending the title. Very

:06:29.:06:32.

depressed he was after that and they had to go and play mixed

:06:32.:06:42.
:06:42.:06:46.

doubles. Melzer and Benesova back up that break. And that evening, it

:06:46.:06:51.

was a few evenings ago, very down he was and Vesnina was a good

:06:51.:06:55.

cheerleader. She cheered him up. She is smiley normally. She looks

:06:55.:07:02.

tense here but she did a great job in thiv -- chivying him up and got

:07:02.:07:08.

him fired up. Benesova, lost in the second round of the Ladies'

:07:09.:07:14.

Singless to Azarenka. But an established singles player, in her

:07:14.:07:22.

own right. A couple of titles in her career. And has a long

:07:22.:07:27.

established Ladies' Doubles partnership. They lost in the Third

:07:27.:07:35.

Round here. She has bounced between about 50 and 30 in the singles

:07:35.:07:41.

ranking. She is only the fifth ranked Czech in doubles and singles.

:07:41.:07:45.

They play in the Fed Cup final, which is the women's equivalent of

:07:45.:07:50.

the day vid advice cup. I wonder if Benesova and Vesnina will be

:07:50.:08:00.
:08:00.:08:33.

featuring in that final? That could It is great to see Bhupati playing

:08:33.:08:40.

so well this year at Wimbledon. He's very much a businessman these

:08:40.:08:46.

days. He has a company called Global Sports. Represents a lot of

:08:46.:08:53.

India's sports stars, such as Mirza. Spends a lot of time working in the

:08:53.:09:03.

:09:21.:09:29.

you need any tips on stocks she the Did you enjoy playing doubles when

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:09:49.

you were... Yes, probably more And they will hope to profit now

:09:49.:09:56.

from the Benesova serve. Rpbts it is not easy playing Benesova and

:09:56.:10:00.

Melzer. You never get a break on that return of serve. The serve

:10:00.:10:10.
:10:10.:10:22.

will be swinging away from you as a You just saw the value there, at

:10:22.:10:25.

the moment Melzer is the man out here. He is dominating this court

:10:25.:10:29.

you. See the value of just moving, when your opponent serves. You

:10:29.:10:34.

don't really have to do anything more dramatic, just make a move. It

:10:34.:10:44.
:10:44.:10:46.

If Bhupati starts to connect with a few return, which think he probably

:10:46.:10:50.

will at some stage, they will have to change the formation, just

:10:51.:10:55.

switch things up to negate that, but so far, Benesova serving well,

:10:55.:11:05.
:11:05.:11:16.

Delegating. Like it. What would you delegate to me Andrew? There is no

:11:16.:11:26.
:11:26.:11:58.

One step closer the first set. UMPIRE: New balls please. It is

:11:58.:12:04.

rather dark and gloomy. It is quite warm though, muggy and Henman Hill

:12:04.:12:08.

is more sparsely populated. They are the hard-core one, the ones

:12:09.:12:18.
:12:19.:12:30.

with staying power. We admire you. They are outside Court One where

:12:30.:12:37.

the boys' double final is takeing place. Oliver Golding, young

:12:37.:12:44.

English player involved and is George Morgan is as well.

:12:44.:12:48.

Golding is playing with Jiri Veseley and Jiri Veseley is a Czech,

:12:48.:12:54.

so Czechs going very well. I am going to try and not bump into

:12:54.:12:58.

Elena after all the matches have finished. There is a lot of Czech

:12:58.:13:03.

bragging at the moment. There is a lot of Czech bragging, in the

:13:03.:13:13.
:13:13.:13:31.

nicest possible way. Vesnina Now, what I like about Elena

:13:31.:13:37.

Vesnina, good solid player. One of a number of Russians in the top 100,

:13:37.:13:42.

ranked seventh in Russia. She does a smile before she serves, down at

:13:42.:13:52.
:13:52.:13:52.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:13:52.:14:36.

her opponent. Is she going to smile She lives near the Black Sea.

:14:36.:14:46.
:14:46.:14:46.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:14:46.:15:33.

Forces Melzer at least to serve for He might have lost a little bit of

:15:33.:15:43.
:15:43.:16:00.

He really is playing well in doubles these days, Jurgen Melzer.

:16:01.:16:05.

We always saw him as a wonderful singles player. He got to the semi-

:16:05.:16:10.

final of the French and beat Roger Federer in Monte Carlo this year. A

:16:10.:16:20.
:16:20.:16:24.

former Boys' Singles winner here. I have always thought of him as a

:16:24.:16:28.

player as a bit like a bull in a china shop, but he really does show

:16:28.:16:34.

a lot of feel, which is remarkable considering how tight G-strings his

:16:34.:16:44.
:16:44.:17:07.

racket. Put to good use their and Quite a bit of British success in

:17:07.:17:12.

the Mixed Doubles over the years. John Lloyd and Wendy Turnbull in

:17:12.:17:20.

1983 and 1984. And of course Janey married four years ago. And

:17:20.:17:27.

peerages Jurgen Melzer and Elena Benesova with the first set. -- and

:17:27.:17:37.
:17:37.:17:39.

he kitties. More people trickling What I like about these two is they

:17:39.:17:47.

have really good chemistry. I wonder if we will get a smile from

:17:47.:17:51.

Benesova. She smiles through her singles matches through the years,

:17:51.:17:55.

and a very jolly person. They have combined really well together

:17:55.:18:01.

almost instantly. Not one that is a dominant force, they really

:18:01.:18:05.

complement each other. I think Jurgen Melzer's girlfriend is here.

:18:05.:18:13.

She is a swimmer, a very good swimmer. She is an Olympic bronze

:18:13.:18:17.

medallist. I think she is not here because the world swimming

:18:17.:18:20.

championships are in Shanghai in a couple of weeks' time, so she is

:18:20.:18:27.

preparing for that. But I am sure she is watching this match from

:18:27.:18:33.

some sort of portal, whether they are in Croatia or may be out in

:18:33.:18:43.
:18:43.:19:00.

Bhupathi to serve to stop the He has done a career Mixed Doubles

:19:00.:19:10.
:19:10.:19:16.

He has not been at his sharpest, I have to say. I wonder if he has

:19:16.:19:26.
:19:26.:19:31.

been busy trading on the phone You talk about his use of different

:19:31.:19:34.

partners over the years. Seven Mixed doubles Grand Slam titles.

:19:34.:19:44.
:19:44.:19:56.

Everyone with different partners. And he is also a wonderful Mixed

:19:56.:20:05.

Doubles player. The queue around the block when Mahesh Bhupathi is

:20:05.:20:15.
:20:15.:20:39.

And they get off to a good start in Originally from Madras. He has a

:20:39.:20:49.
:20:49.:21:21.

house there, and in London. That is They have been very smart,

:21:21.:21:25.

tactically. They have not allowed Bhupathi to get settled on the

:21:25.:21:33.

returns. You can see Benesova being allowed to do her thing on the

:21:33.:21:43.
:21:43.:21:53.

Talking about his racket earlier, he has these luxury nylon strings

:21:53.:22:00.

that cost �70. I don't know how expensive the frame that her whole

:22:00.:22:05.

cities. Sometimes they go up to �75. It is extraordinary -- I don't know

:22:05.:22:15.
:22:15.:22:21.

how expensive the frame at ease Just at the moment the team are

:22:21.:22:25.

able to make hay, because Vesnina and Bhupathi are not doing the

:22:25.:22:35.
:22:35.:22:36.

basics well, making returns and They are rattling through this

:22:36.:22:46.
:22:46.:22:49.

Still thousands upon thousands of the little green fly in the air.

:22:49.:22:59.
:22:59.:23:08.

There were plenty day yesterday It is not just the greenfly, did

:23:08.:23:14.

you see the swarm of bees over Court No. 18, during the ladies

:23:14.:23:18.

Invitational final? They were buzzing around near the highlights

:23:18.:23:22.

studio and just came whizzing through. They probably took out a

:23:22.:23:32.
:23:32.:23:54.

It was Vesnina who has a bit of a straight up-and-down delivery. Not

:23:54.:23:59.

a lot on the second serve. A slightly slower version of her

:23:59.:24:03.

first serve, particularly by Russian standards, as they are not

:24:03.:24:06.

known for one before serving. But the second serve has not a lot of

:24:06.:24:16.
:24:16.:24:22.

cake. It is vulnerable and sits up. Melzer wins the battle of the

:24:22.:24:29.

reaction at the net. He really has channelled all of his fury into

:24:29.:24:33.

losing in the doubles quarter-final into the Mixed Doubles. I've never

:24:33.:24:37.

seen him so passionate about the Mixed Doubles. He has been super

:24:37.:24:47.
:24:47.:25:03.

Vesnina does nothing wrong, maybe slightly short of a length, but

:25:03.:25:13.
:25:13.:25:29.

And it brings up to break points. - I thought there might be an

:25:29.:25:39.
:25:39.:25:41.

extensive discussion. Surely it If no? They are staying

:25:41.:25:51.
:25:51.:26:08.

That second serve was there to be punished by Melzer, and they take

:26:08.:26:18.
:26:18.:26:27.

And they are in control and nail. - - now. He does like to use a hammer

:26:27.:26:32.

to crack a nut, Jurgen Melzer. A wonderful stroke maker. He had a

:26:32.:26:35.

wonderful year on tour in the singles and elevated himself from a

:26:35.:26:43.

player that was always around 15 bought 20 in the world into the top

:26:43.:26:49.

10. Always going up in the shadow of the former French Open champion,

:26:49.:26:56.

Thomas Berdych, and very physical player. That was tough, always

:26:56.:27:02.

trying to live up to those kinds of expectations and levels. There is a

:27:02.:27:06.

lot of talk about former winners of the Boys' Singles like Pat Cash,

:27:06.:27:13.

Roger Federer, and Jurgen Melzer was in 1999. He has always had

:27:13.:27:16.

great promise. I think sometimes that was the frustration when he

:27:16.:27:22.

went on to the main tour, because he is a fiery character. He has

:27:22.:27:25.

calmed down in recent years and the results have improved because of

:27:25.:27:29.

that. I think he was frustrated with not being so successful on the

:27:29.:27:39.
:27:39.:27:48.

Well, if this Russian and Indian pairing are to get back into the

:27:48.:27:51.

match they have to be a little more proactive and take a few more

:27:51.:28:01.
:28:01.:28:12.

chances and get a bit more This pair have served very well

:28:12.:28:22.
:28:22.:28:26.

between them. Winning almost 90 % Not often the way in doubles, but

:28:26.:28:31.

we have -- not unusual in doubles, but we have not had prolonged

:28:31.:28:36.

rallies. Well the reason for that is that their opposition are only

:28:36.:28:46.
:28:46.:28:46.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:28:46.:29:46.

Bhupathi will rule that. They just didn't really pressure the Benesova

:29:46.:29:56.
:29:56.:30:03.

serve at all. Benesova is the least She certainly looks nervous trying

:30:03.:30:07.

to serve out for a place in the final. There were all sorts of

:30:07.:30:17.
:30:17.:30:17.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:30:17.:31:05.

discussions. Vesnina much more Well, they do what they had to do.

:31:05.:31:15.
:31:15.:31:20.

Might not re, but last year, it was Vesnina who had to be the shoulder

:31:20.:31:25.

the cry on for Vera Zvonareva because they made the finals last

:31:25.:31:30.

year, and that her fellow Russian had it tough. Losing in the singles.

:31:30.:31:36.

As they were losing in the doubles, Vera really started to crack a

:31:36.:31:41.

little, and I have to say, Elena was terrific in just getting them

:31:41.:31:46.

at least through the match, without too many dramas. They didn't win

:31:46.:31:53.

but she is experienced at this level. She has developed, but

:31:53.:32:00.

lovely player. Struggles to break- in to the Russian teams. But really

:32:00.:32:03.

making a name for herself in the doubles now. And lost in the second

:32:03.:32:09.

round of the singles here to Vera Zvonareva. Reached the semifinals

:32:09.:32:14.

of the Ladies' Doubles as the number four seeds with Mirza. Lost

:32:14.:32:24.
:32:24.:32:32.

to the eventual winners. Now, If you are a good singles player

:32:32.:32:36.

and a decent doubles player with plenty of stamina, you can pick up

:32:36.:32:42.

a bit of cash. Not that that is what it is all about. Early on in

:32:42.:32:46.

your career, that is, what it is about. So many of the eastern

:32:46.:32:49.

Europeans and the Russian, they play doubles because that is only

:32:49.:32:59.
:32:59.:33:11.

way they are going to get from A to You can see that black sweat band

:33:11.:33:16.

on her right wrist. She has had terrible, terrible wrist problems

:33:16.:33:23.

this year. Her partner in women's doubles has had the same problem.

:33:23.:33:28.

They have been able to help each other. Mirzy has been useful as a

:33:28.:33:32.

doubles partner. They made the final of Roland Garros but also

:33:32.:33:39.

medical advice, that is what I call great value in a double s partner.

:33:40.:33:49.
:33:50.:33:55.

I can hear some Serbian singing Makes me feel we are at the

:33:55.:33:58.

Australian Open. There was a lot of Serbian singing tat Australian open.

:33:58.:34:08.

That is what I have been waiting for from Bhupati. This is

:34:08.:34:18.
:34:18.:34:33.

Melzer is untroubled in his serve. You suspect it will have to be on

:34:33.:34:43.
:34:43.:34:43.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:34:43.:35:29.

APPLAUSE. Amazing from Melzer. I am not sure he has missed a ball out

:35:29.:35:39.
:35:39.:36:10.

here. He has the bit between his Again, the pressure pouring down on

:36:10.:36:17.

tn Vesnina serve. If they are to have a chance, they surely have to

:36:17.:36:27.
:36:27.:37:06.

At 15-30 and second serve by Vesnina to Melzer. You fear for

:37:06.:37:16.
:37:16.:37:39.

APPLAUSE. It is the only shot they have got these two. Hold it and try

:37:39.:37:43.

and pressure Benesova. I am sure as this set gets to the end game,

:37:43.:37:47.

really, for Benesova and Melzer. It will be Benesova, I am not saying

:37:47.:37:50.

this unfairly. I think she will feel it out there, the enormity of

:37:50.:37:54.

the moment, so the more they can pressure her, the better. They will

:37:54.:38:04.
:38:04.:38:10.

Look at this end range power from Melzer on the stretch. So strong,

:38:10.:38:14.

so strong with the right arm coming through there. On the double hander.

:38:14.:38:18.

He is very concerned. He would love the double break here. I think they

:38:18.:38:22.

feel it is certainly on. I wonder if he will look to move across

:38:22.:38:27.

straight after his partner has return serve. Keep an eye out for

:38:27.:38:37.
:38:37.:38:37.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:38:37.:39:19.

You're kidding me. The space opens There was everything in that point,

:39:19.:39:23.

there was the delegation that you like so much, and then there was

:39:23.:39:33.
:39:33.:40:13.

the kitchen sink from Vesnina and Melzer again. Wonderful

:40:13.:40:21.

anticipation and execution... not sure Vesnina knows where to

:40:21.:40:25.

serve for, this is when your partner can help you out. Give you

:40:25.:40:30.

just a bit of support on your decision. They are going to go I

:40:30.:40:34.

formation. They would love to get the first volley after that return.

:40:34.:40:44.
:40:44.:41:20.

Almost inevitable. Double break for That is the former women's doubles

:41:21.:41:27.

champion there with Hingis, and her brother used to play mixed doubles

:41:27.:41:32.

together. I will avoid her if this match is wrapped up here, I will

:41:42.:41:46.

lot these two can do about this. They have tried to switch things up.

:41:46.:41:51.

Apart from doing the basics a little better, it has been the

:41:51.:41:58.

Jurgen Melzer show. Happily backed up by Iveta Benesova, who has been

:41:59.:42:08.
:42:09.:42:10.

anticipate the end. Three That is long. It is there. A smile

winners as well They played the perfect match. They did everything

:44:22.:44:26.

right. I thought Jurgen Melzer was the stand out player on the court.

:44:26.:44:32.

Maybe that goes some way to erasing the disappointment for not

defending his men's title. Iveta Benesova what a moment for her,

is the high light probably, of all those years out there playing

new partnership. Perhaps we will see them again. They are off to a

:47:49.:47:58.

I think everybody thought that would be a long and close match,

:47:58.:48:03.

but they have been in tremendous for -- form, Melzer and Benesova,

:48:03.:48:07.

and they are enjoying their moment in the royal box. So that is the

:48:07.:48:11.

last match completed on Centre Court at these championships. But

:48:11.:48:16.

earlier today there were scenes of joy for this man, Novak Djokovic,

:48:16.:48:21.

kissing the trophy, the trophy he has dreamed about holding since he

:48:21.:48:24.

started, the tournament he wanted to win above all others. He has a

:48:24.:48:30.

tight grip on that famous trophy. BP -- she became world No. 1 on

:48:30.:48:35.

Friday and he defeated Rafael Nadal in four sex and played awesome

:48:35.:48:40.

tennis. Novak Djokovic is the big story of the championships -- in

:48:40.:48:48.

The junior girls' singles was completed earlier, one by the

:48:48.:48:53.

Australian, who put out the much higher ranked player of Russia. She

:48:54.:48:59.

won it 7-5, 7-6. And what a shock to finish on. Well done, and I'm

:48:59.:49:06.

sure we will hear a lot more from That makes it a double for the

:49:06.:49:12.

Australians, because look Savell won the boys' singles yesterday,

:49:12.:49:14.

and there isn't Eighteen-year-old called Bernard Tom which he was

:49:14.:49:22.

doing well. And then to look out Talking of the juniors, we will

:49:22.:49:25.

take you to court number one, because we are guaranteed a British

:49:25.:49:35.
:49:35.:49:38.

winner. Oliver Golding will be up against Morgan in the boys' doubles.

:49:38.:49:48.
:49:48.:49:53.

It is one set apiece as we join We did mention earlier that

:49:53.:50:00.

sometimes Goulding does let the cork popped out of the bottle.

:50:00.:50:03.

Important that they respond positively here. No time for a

:50:03.:50:13.
:50:13.:50:30.

It is all about returns down to the diagonal service box at this stage.

:50:30.:50:40.
:50:40.:50:40.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:50:40.:51:53.

Returns need to be firmly struck. Again, not quite the right shot

:51:53.:51:59.

from Oliver Golding. You have to go hard and flat from that position.

:51:59.:52:06.

We did talk about the fact that there are power houses there, but

:52:06.:52:11.

have you seen enough variation to impress you so far in the match? Or

:52:11.:52:17.

are they in need of the ability to hit the odd shot with top-spin,

:52:17.:52:21.

dink it to the feet. We saw the lob from Oliver Golding in the first

:52:21.:52:25.

set, but we didn't see much in the second. They did start out with a

:52:25.:52:28.

rich variety but now they are going to their natural game, powering

:52:28.:52:34.

through. That one needed to go down to the toes. That is what happens

:52:34.:52:39.

when you get a little tight. The hands can stiffen up a bit. Of

:52:39.:52:44.

course, this is such a big stage and the big occasion for all four

:52:44.:52:48.

boys. You can understand how that might happen. But they do have to

:52:48.:52:51.

take care of the small moments and the big moment will take care of

:52:51.:53:01.
:53:01.:53:11.

It is all about you can get it together, right here, right now.

:53:11.:53:21.
:53:21.:53:29.

One ball at a time, they have to Oliver Golding has just gone off

:53:29.:53:36.

the boil a little bit. And when that happens in doubles it is

:53:36.:53:40.

important for your partner to the GU up and get the focus back on

:53:40.:53:50.

This happened in yesterday's game, and Oliver Golding went walkabout

:53:50.:53:53.

on a service game. But he got pulled through by his partner. They

:53:53.:54:03.
:54:03.:54:04.

He is earning the court and giving them a hard time. They will have to

:54:04.:54:09.

change the scenery and maybe do and by a formation. Some sort of

:54:10.:54:19.
:54:20.:54:32.

different stance all look. Too many I think Oliver Golding has put off

:54:32.:54:42.
:54:42.:54:51.

But you do have to be prepared for Good skills from Oliver Golding,

:54:51.:54:54.

but he was distracted, but he brought it back and refocused. He

:54:54.:55:04.
:55:04.:55:28.

did not let that contaminate the 810 shot rally. Each and every

:55:28.:55:38.
:55:38.:55:54.

Another phenomenal rally. Oliver Golding apologises, but he

:55:54.:55:57.

certainly wanted to make a statement there and was able to do

:55:57.:56:07.
:56:07.:56:46.

A nice bruise there tomorrow, but I can't recall the last time that

:56:46.:56:56.
:56:56.:56:58.

Working that ball back into play. It streamy focused, isn't he? --

:56:58.:57:08.
:57:08.:57:23.

That was a very sensible shot from And, of course, that could be a

:57:23.:57:33.
:57:33.:57:36.

He has got to be careful. Just losing his rag a bit at the moment.

:57:36.:57:40.

You can understand the anguish and the pain. But the match isn't over

:57:40.:57:50.
:57:50.:57:54.

yet. He needs a positive response No question that Morgan and his

:57:54.:58:04.
:58:04.:58:11.

partner have wrestled the momentum He just took his eye off the ball

:58:11.:58:21.
:58:21.:58:35.

Hesitancy there. Having missed the penultimate volley just now, very

:58:35.:58:41.

hesitant around the volley. That puts George Morgan Ilic -- in a

:58:41.:58:48.

little bit of a serving a whole. He will have to get the big ones M. --

:58:48.:58:58.
:58:58.:59:00.

It just shows you how important the first point of the game is. An easy

:59:00.:59:06.

volley, took his eye off it, it missed it and suddenly there is the

:59:06.:59:16.
:59:16.:59:28.

merest hint of a chance for Oliver On reflection, you could say that

:59:29.:59:34.

the one easy forehand volley could cost them the title. A nice

:59:34.:59:37.

response, and a lot of responsibility on his shoulders,

:59:38.:59:43.

because his partner is struggling and that was a good response and he

:59:43.:59:47.

will talk him round and keeping calm and get back on track. That

:59:47.:59:57.
:59:57.:00:02.

The 13th day of the 125th Championships at SW19. An historic

:00:02.:00:08.

day on Centre Court. Creating our own little piece of history out on

:00:08.:00:18.

Court No. 1 but as far as the Fabulous match so far. Of course,

:00:18.:00:23.

we are not beautifully poised, early stages of this deciding set,

:00:23.:00:33.
:00:33.:00:33.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:00:33.:01:52.

APPLAUSE. Ninth ace seals the game. Such a bonus when you can hold

:01:52.:01:56.

service as comfortably as that. We were talking about the momentum

:01:56.:02:01.

switch in the early stages of this third set. That has gone now. And

:02:01.:02:11.
:02:11.:02:28.

if anything, it is now with Golding Well taken, George Morgans calls

:02:28.:02:33.

assertively. "That's mine." He despatchs that nicely. Good, calm

:02:33.:02:43.
:02:43.:02:43.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:02:43.:03:51.

No call. The umpire steps in. Good Pavic was backing off there, he

:03:51.:03:57.

didn't fancy another in the ribs, did he? Absolutely. Once bitten

:03:57.:04:07.
:04:07.:04:45.

That will get them back on track. It is a little quieter now on

:04:45.:04:51.

Henman Hill. All the excitement earlier today of Novak Djokovic

:04:51.:05:00.

winning his first Wimbledon title, defeating Rafael Nadal in keeping

:05:00.:05:06.

an eye on the mixed doubles there. Just about to get the trophy now.

:05:06.:05:10.

It is a nice way to finish the Championships that. The screens

:05:10.:05:15.

have been a real bonus, Henman Hill t screen on number one court,

:05:15.:05:25.
:05:25.:05:43.

number two and three where fans can Shame, that was a good return

:05:43.:05:53.

Morgan has started to hit that forehand a little better but too

:05:53.:06:03.
:06:03.:06:05.

much spin on the last one. A little This will help Golding I think,

:06:05.:06:09.

after that poor service game in the early stages of this deciding set.

:06:09.:06:19.
:06:19.:06:33.

This one started an awful lot It is tricky for gold in that

:06:33.:06:36.

situation, because that team are playing catch up the whole time.

:06:37.:06:43.

They are always having, they are having to tie up to three all, four

:06:43.:06:47.

all and it is quite a strain, but him doing with, so with aplomb

:06:47.:06:51.

there, holding to love very assertive game. Interesting eye

:06:51.:07:01.
:07:01.:07:04.

Bag to regulation for the second. That is what normally happens. --

:07:04.:07:14.
:07:14.:07:28.

Oh such a shame. What a rally. What Great get from George Morgan there.

:07:28.:07:33.

Gets up to his feet. And ready to spring and so he does. Clash of

:07:33.:07:38.

racket, too much power, the ball sent long. Having a great time out

:07:38.:07:48.
:07:48.:07:49.

Nicely done, so close to the net, those angles are a lot easier as a

:07:49.:07:54.

result. Of course, they are so confident, they are not going to

:07:55.:07:59.

get lobbed off such a big serve, that is, why why they can get nice

:07:59.:08:04.

and tight on the net. But we saw Golding use the lob intelligently

:08:04.:08:14.
:08:14.:08:48.

Again Pavic with great hands here, getting the ball nice down wide of

:08:48.:08:58.
:08:58.:09:05.

APPLAUSE. Dropping the hammer again, We are now very much this the

:09:05.:09:09.

business end of this deciding set. Who is your money on Paul? It is

:09:09.:09:14.

really tight. It is hard to say. I mean, the momentum can sway so fast

:09:14.:09:17.

can't it, double fault here and suddenly it sways back. I am going

:09:17.:09:23.

to sit on the fence at this stage, just for a change! It is only a two

:09:23.:09:27.

horse race. Who is your money on? The third pair. I don't know, it is

:09:27.:09:32.

tough isn't it. At the moment, I'm going with Morgan Pavic, because

:09:32.:09:38.

they seem to have an edge of momentum but we know how quickly

:09:38.:09:42.

that can swivel round. You? Perhaps because they have that one game

:09:42.:09:46.

advantage as well, as you get to the tail end of the third set, that

:09:46.:09:51.

could prove vital. Yes, we have spoke oven that early. Abound with

:09:51.:10:01.
:10:01.:10:03.

energy as well right now. We need She didn't look particularly happy

:10:03.:10:11.

with it? Think she got some in her hair! Now is this the chance, a

:10:12.:10:19.

sloppy volley there, first point of the game. A chance now for Morgan

:10:19.:10:29.
:10:29.:10:29.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:10:29.:11:29.

They only hit at 94mph but APPLAUSE. Well they have not had a

:11:29.:11:35.

lot of... Opportunity the returning team there, that is so far a very

:11:35.:11:39.

solid service game from Vesely and Morgan. He keeps the weight on the

:11:39.:11:42.

serve, very difficult to make inroads on return when he is

:11:43.:11:47.

getting the first serve in, Jiri Veseley, window of opportunity here,

:11:47.:11:57.
:11:57.:12:13.

Beautiful hand skills. Gets the ball up and down with aplomb.

:12:13.:12:17.

Vesely didn't quite commit to chasing that one, I think he

:12:17.:12:27.
:12:27.:12:35.

thought it was going out P -- out. He has some lovely feel, those

:12:35.:12:40.

ground strokes. Yeah, he has rarely missed a return, the man in the

:12:40.:12:50.
:12:50.:12:50.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:12:50.:13:51.

It is all about holding your nerve now. At this stage in the final.

:13:52.:14:01.
:14:02.:14:14.

has certainly been nip and tuck the He let the racket head drop on this

:14:14.:14:19.

volley a little too fast. He is losing control. That sometimes

:14:19.:14:24.

happens with players who double hand backhand, when the other hand

:14:24.:14:30.

comes off their occasionally lose control. -- they occasionally lose

:14:30.:14:40.
:14:40.:14:56.

Just made it. Great anticipation there from Vesely. He knew that

:14:56.:15:00.

they were trying to create the angle with the volley, so he was

:15:00.:15:05.

already on the move. And a very sensible shot, in the middle of the

:15:05.:15:11.

court. Such a good tactic to use. They have created a window of

:15:11.:15:21.
:15:21.:15:34.

Again the return from Golding, not quite hit with enough spin. We have

:15:34.:15:37.

seen him struggle in that regard, throughout the course of the match.

:15:37.:15:40.

Likes the power play. Doesn't necessarily have control of the

:15:40.:15:50.
:15:50.:16:23.

ball when trying to dip it to the UMPIRE: Mr Morgan is challenging

:16:23.:16:33.
:16:33.:16:49.

the call on the right. The ball was That was a good serve. Excellent

:16:49.:16:55.

second serve from Pavic. A lot of movement on it, through the air and

:16:55.:17:00.

off the court. It was difficult for Golding to get that back in play.

:17:00.:17:06.

Nice Hanger time from Morgan. he did seem to hang up there on a

:17:06.:17:13.

stepladder. A great dispatch. A There have not been many of those

:17:13.:17:18.

today. Just a sloppy volley from Morgan. Again, under pressure. The

:17:18.:17:23.

tension of the occasion and the hands stiffening up. It is tough to

:17:23.:17:33.
:17:33.:17:57.

The slightly better return, a Remember, they were a break down in

:17:57.:18:00.

the early stages of this deciding set, now an opportunity to break to

:18:00.:18:10.
:18:10.:18:11.

give them just one game away from A courageous shot from Pavic.

:18:11.:18:15.

I don't know many players who would have gone with that option. Very,

:18:15.:18:21.

very brave under that sort of pressure. Most people would have

:18:21.:18:29.

So where are we going to serve? White, middle, body? Are you going

:18:29.:18:39.
:18:39.:18:41.

It is always quite telling in those discussions at this stage in such

:18:41.:18:47.

an important match who makes the decision. The service, because

:18:47.:18:52.

clarity is power and -- clarity is paramount. He has to put the serve

:18:52.:19:02.
:19:02.:19:09.

Again, there is the top spin. That did the damage. A really good shot

:19:09.:19:13.

from Golding. Yes, he got it up and down very quickly, Golding and got

:19:13.:19:23.
:19:23.:19:55.

some pace in it. Always a tough This takes courage from the Croat.

:19:55.:20:01.

The regular service is hard, but it takes bravery to go out with your

:20:01.:20:11.
:20:11.:20:17.

least favourite surface. -- least Beautifully done. Terrific hands

:20:17.:20:27.
:20:27.:20:32.

A really great a lengthy exchange. Dispatched this at -- assertively

:20:32.:20:36.

by the Croat. Very, very alert. What a big holder of serve that was

:20:36.:20:40.

for him. If you weren't we this earlier in the match, it was Pavic

:20:40.:20:46.

who took the match either struck -- graph of the neck in a certain set

:20:46.:20:52.

-- second set. It was Morgan who had played a good game and Pavic

:20:52.:20:55.

really took the responsibility in the second set to say they would

:20:55.:20:58.

get back into the match and this is how we will do it. And again,

:20:58.:21:01.

taking responsibility well throughout the course of the last

:21:01.:21:09.

service game. Yes, he has taken the ownership, and it comes down to

:21:09.:21:13.

mental toughness skills. Focus, body language, positivity and

:21:13.:21:17.

showing the other team you need a business. These two were are doing

:21:17.:21:23.

well in snowballing their momentum. Interesting to see if Oliver

:21:23.:21:33.
:21:33.:21:59.

Golding can rise to the occasion At least Vesely was positive. There

:21:59.:22:09.
:22:09.:22:10.

is nothing worse than missing the Well, he is apologising because he

:22:10.:22:18.

did not quite get hold of the volley. Withstanding a barrage of

:22:18.:22:28.
:22:28.:22:36.

That is a little sloppy. Just seemed to lay back on the wrist,

:22:36.:22:43.

and it spilled over the baseline. Real pressure now on Morgan and

:22:43.:22:53.
:22:53.:23:00.

Again, the return of serve, dipping to the feet of Golding. Remember,

:23:00.:23:05.

he lost his serve in the early stages of this deciding set. Can he

:23:05.:23:15.
:23:15.:23:29.

recover here or will it cost him? He threw everything bar the kitchen

:23:29.:23:39.
:23:39.:23:57.

sink at the top seeds there. Stood Cometh the hour, cometh the man.

:23:57.:24:07.
:24:07.:24:10.

Golding performing very well under What a crucial hold. Showing real

:24:10.:24:20.
:24:20.:24:20.

Never easy when you missed a relatively routine shots like he

:24:20.:24:25.

did midway through the game, but he recovered valiantly. The course,

:24:25.:24:31.

the more often you are in that situation, it is of Peps weight --

:24:31.:24:41.
:24:41.:25:13.

What a rat-a-tat it was. Jiri Vesely going down the line of

:25:13.:25:21.

Morgan. Vesely not quite getting Probably indicative of a little

:25:21.:25:31.
:25:31.:25:54.

That is a nice smash. He did not Pavic has such quick hands at the

:25:54.:26:04.
:26:04.:26:18.

The nice team work to help each other around. Morgan and Pavic are

:26:18.:26:24.

rock solid. Yes, looking very solid around the net, and Morgan ruled

:26:24.:26:29.

that in and 91 mph but very accurate. He has recorded one at

:26:29.:26:39.
:26:39.:26:54.

125 mph early in the match that is A lovely change it from Vesely. --

:26:54.:27:04.
:27:04.:27:19.

Dropping Le Hamel once more, and that is even bigger. 127 mph --

:27:19.:27:29.
:27:29.:27:32.

Even though there is only one game in it, you get the impression it is

:27:32.:27:35.

Morgan and Pavic who have just worked the momentum a little bit

:27:35.:27:39.

better in the deciding set. Of course, they do have the advantage

:27:39.:27:43.

of being a game ahead and there is always more pressure on Golding and

:27:43.:27:51.

Vesely. Yes, has returned so well and created the micro opportunities

:27:51.:27:57.

earlier in the game, then Morgan started to steamroller, but it is a

:27:57.:28:01.

well contested and spirited match. But both teams have acquitted

:28:01.:28:11.
:28:11.:28:12.

For a nice bonus for those with tickets to Court Number One. They

:28:12.:28:22.
:28:22.:28:23.

have seen some great matches. This They handled the pressure initially

:28:23.:28:28.

of having to hold serve to stay in the match. Can they do it again at

:28:28.:28:38.
:28:38.:29:02.

George Morgan did well to get the forehand down to Jiri Vesely, who

:29:02.:29:07.

was a tall boy at 6 ft 4. He dropped his racket and did not

:29:07.:29:17.
:29:17.:29:41.

quite get his big frame down to the He really was a lurch and focused

:29:41.:29:44.

to this, Oliver Golding. Right on to the middle of a string -- really

:29:44.:29:54.
:29:54.:30:07.

That is the favourite return of Morgan. So solid off the backhand.

:30:07.:30:11.

Just taking a bit of pace of the return, so it makes it more

:30:11.:30:21.
:30:21.:30:33.

difficult for the volley. Another Good hands. But again the point set

:30:33.:30:36.

us wonderfully well by Pavic. Morgan's certainly playing his part

:30:36.:30:46.
:30:46.:30:46.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:30:46.:31:58.

A victory for the second seeds, over the top seeds. In a

:31:58.:32:04.

magnificent final. All four players certainly playing their parts in a

:32:04.:32:10.

highly entertaining match. But it is Morgan and Pavic who eventually

:32:10.:32:19.

SUE BARKER: And a big cheer from Court Number One crowd and they

:32:19.:32:24.

were given their trophy by Anne Jones who was on court. There they

:32:24.:32:33.

are, the champions of Wimbledon. Congratulations to George Morgan

:32:33.:32:38.

and to Mate Pavic, winners of the Boys' Doubles. And we are going to

:32:38.:32:42.

stay on the air for about another half hour to look back at these

:32:43.:32:46.

Championships. Raise John is still with me and John, we are talking

:32:46.:32:50.

there about the boy, because Liam Broady got through to the singles

:32:50.:32:54.

final and then George beating Oliver Golding. We had two in the

:32:54.:32:58.

doubles final. It is, has been a good Championships for the

:32:58.:33:05.

youngsters. It has been. But as always we have to be temperate a

:33:05.:33:07.

bit. There is some juniors that could be playing here that are on

:33:08.:33:12.

the main tour, so it is not the best in the world here in this

:33:12.:33:17.

junior, so we can't go overboard. What we have to look at is whether

:33:17.:33:21.

the juniors we are watch, do they have the parts of the game they

:33:21.:33:26.

will be able to make the transition into the seniors? So often in the

:33:26.:33:30.

past we don't. There is something different about Liam Broady. He is

:33:30.:33:35.

fiesty, think we have to take it down a level, a bit. Not go vover

:33:35.:33:41.

board. See how they do when they get in with the big guys. Heather

:33:41.:33:45.

Watson and Laura Robson in the women, we saw Laura pushing Maria

:33:45.:33:49.

Sharapova. They can do it but we should just take it easy, it was

:33:49.:33:53.

good, good experience, get good wins in front of a lot of people.

:33:53.:33:57.

It is what counts when they get to the next level. It's a good start.

:33:57.:34:01.

Bernard Tomic who was 18, and he went right the way through the draw

:34:01.:34:05.

to the quarterfinals, you know, he is, he is a rarity in way because

:34:05.:34:09.

he was the youngest one in this tournament, so in the mens they

:34:09.:34:14.

take longer to develop don't they? There is no question. If you look t

:34:14.:34:19.

the average age on the top 100 is 24, 25 maybe. So yes, it does. You

:34:19.:34:23.

have to look at whether or not we are building, we have juniors in

:34:23.:34:28.

there that have all round games, that will, when they go up against

:34:28.:34:31.

the senior, they can make that difference and not just be sort of

:34:31.:34:35.

good juniors but don't have the power to go to the next level. But

:34:35.:34:39.

there is good signs, but there is a long way to go yet. We will talk in

:34:39.:34:43.

a moment, we have friends of ours to tell them what happened in their

:34:43.:34:53.

matches, first of all we had the senior mens' doubles.. No title for

:34:53.:35:00.

Britain this time but as Jeremy Bates was beaten. So Cash and

:35:00.:35:07.

Woodforde won their title 10-5 in that tie-break. And Hingis, the

:35:07.:35:14.

champion here in 97 as a 1-year-old along with our BBC colleague

:35:14.:35:19.

Lindsay Davenport. They won over Martina Navratilova and her partner.

:35:19.:35:25.

Well done to them. Now in the last few days out on court 14, the stars

:35:25.:35:30.

of wheelchair tennis have been Newcastle in action. Two finals

:35:30.:35:40.
:35:40.:35:48.

were completed and Nick Hope can Peter fo for folk and his partner

:35:48.:35:54.

are the two big names in the world of wheelchair tennis. Ladies first.

:35:54.:36:00.

She is simply a champion like no other. Five Paralympic golds,

:36:00.:36:04.

undefeated in singles since 2003. That is a run that stretches over

:36:04.:36:09.

400 matches. I know I can win a tournament. I know I can beat

:36:09.:36:11.

everybody, but then, you know I everybody, but then, you know I

:36:12.:36:16.

have to tell myself it is not a for sure thing. That is what makes me,

:36:16.:36:21.

you know, eager to win every single time. Something she has done in

:36:21.:36:25.

doubles for the last two years. know it is a dream, a dream playing

:36:26.:36:30.

here, it's a dream coming here, and the venue looks great. The people

:36:30.:36:35.

are awesome. It's the whole add mots fear and the tradition based

:36:35.:36:42.

here. -- atmosphere. In the final they took the opening sets 6-4 but

:36:42.:36:45.

things were more tricky in the second and after the match was

:36:45.:36:51.

levelled the favourites found themselves 5-2 in the decider. Cue

:36:51.:37:01.
:37:01.:37:05.

It was close to losing but I never felt that we didn't have a chance,,

:37:05.:37:10.

so you know, even 5-2 down I was like, you know, we have to change

:37:10.:37:15.

something. But we still have a chance, and you know, being in the

:37:15.:37:20.

final gives you just a bit extra motivation to fight for it, and try

:37:20.:37:28.

your hardest. And despite being a two time plim tick -- Paralympic

:37:28.:37:38.

Having experienced the Centre Court atmosphere, he is keen to change

:37:38.:37:45.

that. I did the coin toss for Roger and Andy Roddick. It is one of

:37:45.:37:49.

those experiences that is fantastic. A bit like when you are going into

:37:49.:37:54.

a Paralympics. We are trying to get the Quad exhibition here for next

:37:54.:37:58.

year, leading into the Paralympics. It is one of those challenges I

:37:58.:38:02.

haven't succeeded in. I would love to win a Wimbledon Championship. I

:38:02.:38:07.

have won most things but not that yet. There were some guys in action.

:38:07.:38:14.

The men's doubles final was contested between the French

:38:14.:38:19.

pairing and the Dutch pair. It was a repeat of last month's French

:38:19.:38:24.

Open final but it was the Dutch pair who triumphed here. We didn't

:38:24.:38:30.

do bad this week. I mean, it means really a lot for us, we won,, three

:38:30.:38:34.

Grand Slams before, we never won this. Winning is really important

:38:35.:38:40.

for us, especially, the fourth Grand Slam for us, and last week we

:38:40.:38:48.

lost from them in a final, in the French Open, so now we beat them,

:38:48.:38:52.

and then at Wimbledon, it is incredible. Lovely to see them here,

:38:52.:38:56.

it was a good day for the Dutch. We wish them well in their preparation

:38:56.:39:00.

for the Paralympic. Someone who didn't have a good day on Centre

:39:00.:39:04.

Court was Rafael Nadal. He was on a 20 match winning streak but that

:39:04.:39:08.

came to an end where he was beaten by an inspired Novak Djokovic who a

:39:08.:39:13.

couple of days has taken his world number one ranking. Let us hear

:39:13.:39:21.

from him. I am sorry about the result, give us your story of the

:39:21.:39:27.

match. Well, the story is... He played better than me. He is 2

:39:27.:39:34.

champion. For sure I have to analyse whether, but today, I think,

:39:34.:39:39.

I did a few things. When you won that third set, you must have

:39:39.:39:46.

thought "I've got a chance now." Well, always. Even with two sets

:39:46.:39:52.

there, I am fighting every moment, but... Yeah, first set was

:39:52.:39:57.

important set, but that's, that's the thing is, I didn't play well.

:39:57.:40:00.

The important moment during the match. To win this kind of match,

:40:00.:40:06.

you have to play really well mentally and all the important

:40:06.:40:10.

moment, that is, something I didn't. Is that what makes the result so

:40:10.:40:13.

much more disappointing and annoying, because you know you

:40:13.:40:22.

didn't play your best? No, no, no. You know, I accept that the sport,

:40:22.:40:26.

you cannot win every time. I am happy to be here, enjoying this

:40:26.:40:31.

moment, enjoying the final, you know. He played better than me.

:40:31.:40:36.

That's what I can do, the thing that I can do, is keep working hard,

:40:36.:40:43.

try the find the way the try to beat him this time. And you know,

:40:43.:40:50.

be the second of Wimbledon is a fantastic result for me. You are

:40:50.:40:55.

still very young, only 25. Could you even describe how you get over

:40:55.:40:58.

such a sporting disappointment? You are maying in the biggest final in

:40:59.:41:02.

the world, yet you have lost. How long does it take you to recover

:41:02.:41:09.

from a disappointing result like this? You know, life is more

:41:09.:41:18.

important than game. You know it is impossible to win every time. I was

:41:18.:41:24.

with the trophy in Roland Garros a few weeks ago. Today I I lost but I

:41:24.:41:29.

was in the final. I was there. I am a good competitor, I like to win,

:41:29.:41:33.

but I accept when somebody plays better than myself, and when

:41:33.:41:40.

somebody is doing a few things better than me. Today, that is what

:41:40.:41:44.

happen. Tomorrow we are at home enjoying the summer. You are going

:41:44.:41:49.

to fly home to Majorca, do you go fishing, do you play golf, do you

:41:49.:41:53.

sit on the beach to get over the disappointment? I have a lot of

:41:53.:41:57.

people round. I have a fantastic family round me, fantastic friends.

:41:57.:42:02.

A lot of people supporting me. Even today, when I lost, the crowd here

:42:02.:42:11.

were supporting me a lot, and that is something that is impossible to

:42:11.:42:16.

to fill outside of this tournament You will still think yourself I

:42:16.:42:21.

have won ten Grand Slam, which is a wonderful achievement I for sure,

:42:21.:42:27.

if I stopped my career today, what I won is more that I ever dreamed,

:42:27.:42:31.

so, I have got everything. I cannot be very disappointing, to lose

:42:31.:42:36.

today, for sure I want to win, but I already won a lot of times in the

:42:36.:42:40.

past. Yes, he has to remember that. That is the interview no plauer

:42:40.:42:43.

wants to give is it, your heart is broke, and you have to sit there

:42:43.:42:48.

and go through all the duties. and he will reflect in the next few

:42:48.:42:51.

day, because that is what they do, the champion, because he will want

:42:51.:42:55.

to make sure it doesn't happen again, and he will realise today on

:42:55.:43:00.

big points he's didn't play well, which is unusual for him. Credit to

:43:00.:43:05.

Novak, but Rafa can play better than that, he will be disappointed

:43:05.:43:08.

but has the US Open coming up round the corner and he will be back for

:43:08.:43:13.

that for sure. You know he will pick himself up. He is young, he is

:43:13.:43:17.

only 25, and he has many more years at his best, at his peak to do it.

:43:17.:43:22.

Absolutely, I mean he has won ten, he could still win another ten bg

:43:22.:43:26.

easily. But he will be disappointed. He will work on thing, he will

:43:26.:43:30.

analyse it with his coach, with Uncle Toni, they will say this is

:43:30.:43:34.

what we immediate to do to beat Novak. They will come up with a

:43:34.:43:39.

plan. I want to see what he does next time he plays him. Today

:43:39.:43:42.

belonged to Novak Djokovic. He has the President of Serbia in the

:43:42.:43:46.

Royal Box, but also the Foreign Minister of Serbia, who is also the

:43:46.:43:49.

President of the Tennis Association, we can hear from him, because after

:43:49.:43:56.

he spoke to John Inverdale. Listen, here we are surrounded by a load of

:43:56.:44:01.

Serbian fans, what does today mean for your country? This is probably

:44:01.:44:05.

the most important day in the sporting history of the country.

:44:05.:44:07.

Today everyone is very proud. I don't think there is a Serb who

:44:07.:44:12.

lives anywhere in the world who is not very very proud. How can you

:44:12.:44:17.

reward Novak for what he has done for your country today? Well, it is

:44:17.:44:23.

very very difficult to reward him for today, but what we did is, he

:44:23.:44:29.

was made ambassador, and Foreign Minister I so made his ambassador

:44:29.:44:34.

for Serbia. Ha was a small thing we could do to help him facilitate, to

:44:35.:44:38.

travel round the world and keep doing what he is doing for Serbia.

:44:38.:44:42.

Novak Djokovic is the best ambassador, that Serbia has ever

:44:42.:44:47.

had, probably. Now Now you have had two women be world number one, now

:44:47.:44:53.

you have a man at the top. Number one tomorrow. How important for

:44:53.:44:58.

Serbia is tennis, if I say a political web, do you know what I

:44:58.:45:02.

mean, the way of spreading how your country is at the moment? This is

:45:02.:45:06.

indeed the case. Serbia is doing exceptionally well in tennis, and

:45:06.:45:12.

probably we are punching above our weight in the tennis sport, but

:45:12.:45:16.

Novak has made it possible, in every corner of the world they know

:45:16.:45:19.

about Serbia, and they know in the best possible light about Serbia,

:45:19.:45:25.

because there is so much to be known about Serbia. It is nobody is

:45:25.:45:27.

listening, except to Novak, everybody is listening to him and

:45:27.:45:32.

that is why he is is doing a great job for his country. Your country

:45:32.:45:36.

has had so many issue, ten, 15, 20 years ago, is this in a sense a

:45:36.:45:40.

great opportunity for a very positive spin, about Serbia and its

:45:40.:45:46.

future? Definitely. I think that nobody can doubt the fact that

:45:46.:45:51.

Novak is a positive face of Serbia, everybody is excited about his

:45:51.:45:56.

victory, everybody was a bit surprised that jock wasn't greet

:45:56.:46:01.

here in Wimbledon after he had won, like our champions but I am sure

:46:01.:46:05.

when he comes next year and the year after and when he wins next

:46:05.:46:08.

year and the year after next the crowd will warm up to him. Let me

:46:08.:46:13.

ask you in Belgrade and everywhere else, a few parties do you think?

:46:13.:46:17.

think the entire nation will be partying tonight. Watch for the

:46:17.:46:21.

news bulletins from Serbia, I think there are things to be seen from

:46:21.:46:31.
:46:31.:46:55.

Are you going to sing a song for I think they will be singing for

:46:55.:46:59.

some time in Serbia. Novak Djokovic has merged into this superstar of

:46:59.:47:03.

the game. We are lucky. We had Roger Federer and Nadal and we were

:47:03.:47:06.

blessed with those two players because they got what it was about

:47:06.:47:11.

to be number one and all the things you do outside of the sport to make

:47:11.:47:15.

tennis bigger and bigger, and now we have Novak Djokovic who has

:47:15.:47:18.

great personality and will be a fabulous number one. He is very

:47:18.:47:23.

charismatic. I think he will be a megastar. Winning 48 out of 49

:47:23.:47:27.

matches, he will be number one for some time. So he should be. It's an

:47:27.:47:30.

unbelievable record with the US Open coming up and he is the

:47:30.:47:37.

favourite to win that. You cannot see anyone beating him at the

:47:37.:47:41.

moment. A brief line on Andy Murray, you were saying that he needs a

:47:41.:47:46.

coach and he should give Jimmy Connors a call. The suggestion is

:47:46.:47:50.

if you want to be a great, you hire someone who was a great. That is

:47:50.:47:54.

someone who has been there and done it, and someone like Jimmy, we have

:47:54.:47:58.

seen that Andy has got the game, because we saw it against Nadal for

:47:58.:48:01.

eight set and a bit, but the mental side is a bit behind the top two or

:48:01.:48:07.

three. With someone like Jimmy in his corner every practice session

:48:07.:48:10.

will getting tougher so he can compete at a level he needs to. It

:48:10.:48:16.

would not be a bad suggestion. says he wants to think about it and

:48:16.:48:22.

get it right and he has taken on at that clothing line. Darren Cahill

:48:22.:48:25.

is a wonderful coach, but he has other people in the job he has to

:48:26.:48:29.

work with because he is not full time. When you talk about what

:48:29.:48:35.

separates the top, you want someone who is not part time, in my opinion.

:48:35.:48:39.

Not a bad championship for him. A bad set, and it let him get away.

:48:39.:48:45.

He has made two semi-finals in the last two Grand Slams. He just needs

:48:45.:48:55.

an extra bit, but quite a bit at the moment, and he can do it.

:48:55.:48:58.

2011 championships coming to a close. We have ground to new

:48:58.:49:01.

champions here, but let's remind you of what has been happening over

:49:01.:49:11.
:49:11.:49:32.

the last fortnight. Phil Jones For it was a wonderful 120 fit

:49:32.:49:38.

celebration. Something special was stirring. In close-up, back from

:49:38.:49:41.

her self-titled deathbed experience, Serena Williams was moved to

:49:41.:49:46.

emotion never before seen from a champion. Relieved to be through

:49:46.:49:51.

her opener, but more relieved to be playing at all, to have more

:49:51.:49:55.

tomorrows. Tears as well for British teenager Heather Watson,

:49:55.:49:59.

but so so many bright tomorrow's for her on this painful evidence.

:49:59.:50:05.

She led, she was hurt, she fought, she lost, but the guts and guile

:50:05.:50:15.
:50:15.:50:37.

For marathon man was back. A year after winning the long this man --

:50:38.:50:42.
