Feeling of relief

Out of reach
Spain's Rafael Nadal hit 21 winners to 15 unforced errors in the men's singles final, but that wasn't enough to help him beat Serbia's Novak Djokovic.
All set up
Hitting 27 winners to 12 unforced errors, No. 2 Novak Djokovic of Serbia captured the 2011 Wimbledon Championships crown with a four-set victory over No. 1 Rafael Nadal of Spain.
Twists and turns
While momentum seemed to shift to No. 1 Rafael Nadal in the third set, he couldn't pull out the rally against No. 2 Novak Djokovic.
Going for it

Taking a leap
A foot injury suffered in the fourth round didn't seem to hamper Spain's Rafael Nadal in his next two matches in advancing to the championship match at the All England Club.
Stretching to defend his title
A two-time champion at Wimbledon, Spain's Rafael Nadal earned his spot in the 2011 final with notable four-set wins over No. 24 Juan Martin Del Potro, No. 10 Mardy Fish and No. 4 Andy Murray.

Meeting of the minds
