Wimbledon Championships in London

The 2014 Wimbledon men's nail-biting final between Djokovic and Federer was a great follow-up to Murray's win for British fans oen year ago. As expected wimbledon fans were pulling for Federer to triumph but in the the end appreciated the resolve and determination of Novak Djokovic as he won in 5 close sets 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 5-7, 6-4 .

In the women's draw another French speaking woman made to the final Eugenie Bouchard from Montreal Canada, but this was not her year as Petra Kivitova was locked in from the start and easily won 6-3, 6-0 for her second Wimbledon championship. The take away from this tournament was that Eugenie Bouchard is here to stay with her overall solid game.
