Novak Djokovic won his sixth Wimbledon title. It did it with 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 6-4 6-3. Berrettini saved two match points at 5-3 in the fourth set with a controlled volley and a 101mph forehand winner down the line. But the Italian could not fight off the third. Now Djokovic equals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal with 20 Grand Slam titles. “It’s just been unbelievable feelings, maybe too many to handle. For sure, he was better than me. Well done to him, he is writing the history of the sport and he deserves all the credit,” Matteo Berrettini said. Having already claimed the Australian Open and French Open, Djokovic is the fifth man in history – and only the second in the Open era after Rod Laver in 1969 – to win the first three majors of the season.
Winning Wimbledon was always the biggest dream for me when I was a kid,” said the world number one. Djokovic has made no secret of the fact he is motivated by creating history. There were worldwide appreciations of his performance at Wimbledon. „Novak Djokovic has just taken tennis to another level,” said former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli on BBC Radio 5 Live. „Djokovic had an incredible tournament, he came in as a huge favourite and he put in an absolute masterclass in the two weeks. No doubt the best player won this tournament,” declared former British number one Tim Henman on BBC TV.
