Nadal Stuns Federer To Win Wimbledon Title

Rafael Nadal has ended
Roger Federer's reign at Wimbledon, beating the Swiss star in a
marathon men's final 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 9-7.
Nadal had lost the last two Wimbledon finals to Federer, but
finally managed to get the better of the 12-time Grand Slam
champion.
Nadal, a four-time French Open champion, also beat Federer in
the final at Roland Garros in each of the last three years.
Federer's loss ends his 65-match winning streak on grass, and
his 40-match winning streak at Wimbledon.
Nadal is the first Spaniard to win the men's singles title at
Wimbledon since Manolo Santana in 1966.
With over two hours of rain delays, the match didn't end until
9:18 p.m. local time.
