Roger Federer is still one the greatest on Wimbledon’s Center Court — he’s won the trophy seven times and had he won the match it would have set a record. American Pete Sampras has also won Wimbledon seven times.

Björn Borg of Sweden won the title five years in a row, from 1976-1980.

The young Serb doesn’t have the opportunity to win a Calendar Grand Slam this year; he lost the French Open to Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, just over a month ago.

Djokovic has now won 12 Grand Slam events in his career.
