LONDON (AP) - A quick look at Wimbledon:
THE MEN’S SINGLES FINAL
Novak Djokovic is back at his best and the Wimbledon champion for a fourth time, grabbing a lead right away against a weary Kevin Anderson in the final and winning 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (3) on Sunday.

Djokovic held steady, saving all five of those, then was as superior in the tiebreaker as he was most of the sun-drenched afternoon. It is Djokovic’s 13th major trophy, the fourth-highest total in the history of men’s tennis.
Sunny. High of 86 degrees (30 Celsius).
