After 4 hours 57 minutes, Djokovic won and successfully defended the championship. This is the longest final in Wimbledon, breaking the old record of 4 hours 48 minutes, setting in 2008 final between Federer and Nadal.

In 2019, Wimbledon changed the 5 set format to better fit the players. When the two players play together after 24 games, they will enter the tie-break series to determine the winning and losing, instead of hitting them until the difference between the two games is created.

The men's singles final between Federer and Djokovic is the first match to apply. Djokovic even embarrassedly asked the referee "when it comes to tie-break". Without new rules, the time of the finals could be extended even further.
