Novak Djokovic shows off the Wimbledon trophy shortly after taking down Roger Federer in the final.

With 2014 Wimbledon in the books, we bring you some of the best (and worst) moments from SW19.

Best men's match: Novak Djokovic d. Roger Federer 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 in the men's final. This one is obvious. Relive it here.

Worst men's match: Jiri Vesely d. Gael Monfils 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-7 (3), 6-4 in the second round. Monfils gave a joke of an effort, and Vesely kept choking away his chances before finally pulling out the win. It wasn't a fun match to watch.

Best women's match: Petra Kvitova d. Venus Williams 5-7, 7-6 (2), 7-5 in the third round. On Centre Court, Venus played nearly perfect tennis for two hours against the eventual champion. Her serve was broken just once -- when she down 6-5 in the third set. This loss looks all the more better after Kvitova went on to win the title.

Worst women's match: Ekaterina Makarova d. Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3, 6-0. That scoreline should never happen; Radwanska was a mess.

Best men's point: Nick Kyrgios hit this incredible tweener en route to his victory against Rafael Nadal.

Best women's point: Kvitova said that when she hit this backhand winner against Bouchard in the final, she knew that she was in the zone.

Best celebration: Novak Djokovic's "How you like me now?"

Best meltdown: Alize Cornet. Always.

Worst meltdown: Fabio Fognini. Always.

Best save: Kyrgios comes back from two-sets to love down and saves nine match points to beat Richard Gasquet. 

Best upset: Kyrgios beats No. 1 Rafael Nadal in the fourth round. What a way to make yourself known.

This is what it looks like when you vanquish your demons.

Best quote: "If I'm not playing, you know, a great, great match, these girls when they play me, they play as if they're on the ATP Tour, and then they play other girls completely different. It's never easy, you know, being in my shoes." -- Serena Williams, after losing to Alize Cornet in the third round.

Best press conference moment: Ernests Gulbis, vampire slayer

Worst press conference moment: Here's the full transcript from Robin Haase's press conference after he won in the first round. At least pretend to be interested in his tennis before launching into World Cup questions.

Q: Robin, just want to ask how much attention you're paying to the World Cup while you're here?
Haase: Nothing.
Q: Nothing?
Haase: I just won my match. I don't want talk about soccer.
Q: OK.
Haase: Sorry, but it's really not important for me right now.
