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


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


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


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


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


Djokovic become the Wimbledon champion, he has become the world


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


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


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


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


Nobody thinking about him before the Championships. Everyone talking


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


ranked Russian in doubles. I remember the words of Todd


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


established Ladies' Doubles partnership. They lost in the Third


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

English player involved and is George Morgan is as well.


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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

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


duck her definitely on the way out! Give her her moment. It is not a


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


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


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

Maybe that goes some way to erasing the disappointment for not

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


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


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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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


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


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


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

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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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


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

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


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


taking responsibility well throughout the course of the last


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


mental toughness skills. Focus, body language, positivity and


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


well in snowballing their momentum. Interesting to see if Oliver

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


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


Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds


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


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


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


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


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


are, the champions of Wimbledon. Congratulations to George Morgan


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


of wheelchair tennis have been Newcastle in action. Two finals


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


The men's doubles final was contested between the French


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


you have to play really well mentally and all the important


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


much more disappointing and annoying, because you know you


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Novak Djokovic is the best ambassador, that Serbia has ever


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


tomorrows. Tears as well for British teenager Heather Watson,


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


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

Feliciano Lopez in week one. Mrs Venus, back from five months of


injury woes, found the force was not with her. Zapped for a second


year by a Bulgarian in orbit. Her sister Serena Williams used to have


opponents at her will, but not after a year of injury and illness.

kaleidoscopic whirl. The wizardry of Rafael Nadal just two magical.


Until Novak Djokovic pulled back the curtain and realise that Nadal


is a mere mortal after all. He took his number one ranking, his


Wimbledon title and has lost just once all year. The air is a new


champion at Wimbledon! Novak Djokovic! A Serbian twist in the


tail at the end of the fortnight. Pure box-office. Wimbledon, yearly


sequel, and never equalled. And just like that it was Gone With the

the end we saw some new champion's crown and some players who could


stay at the top of a game for some time. It is time for me to say


goodbye and everybody here at Wimbledon is making their way home


after an exciting day of tennis. Where we saw Novak Djokovic crowned
