An Encore for History at Wimbledon

The Spaniard, who had squandered two match points in a nerve-shredding fourth set tie-breaker, added a first All England [Images] Club title on Sunday to his four French Opens, shattering Federer's dreams of an historic sixth successive Wimbledon trophy with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 9-7 win.

"It's impossible to explain what I felt when I won. I'm just very happy to win this title. I never thought I could win but to do so is a dream," said Nadal who had lost the last two finals to Federer.

Was Federer v Nadal the best final?

Earlier, after losing to Serena in their last five meetings in grand slam finals, including the 2002 and 2003 showdowns at the All England Club, Venus finally managed to turn the tables on her younger sister winning 7-5 6-4 on Saturday.
