Novak defeated Italy’s Matteo Berrettini in the Wimbledon final and win his 20th Grand Slam title.
You must have heard the famous phrase about football: “Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.” While I was reading the news about Wimbledon on Twitter, I came across an adaptation inspired by that phrase: “Tennis is a game that Novak Djokovic always wins.” Indeed, 34-year-old Djokovic has proved adaptation of this famous phrase when he became the champion once again by defeating Italy’s Matteo Berrettini in the men’s single final of Wimbledon, which is the third Grand Slam tournament of the season.
Although Berrettini dominated the first set, he could not maintain its stability in the ongoing sets. At the end, Djokovic defeated Matteo Berrettini in four sets.
Thus, Djokovic won the third biggest tournament of the season after Australian Open and the French Open and he has reached the 20th Grand Slam title of his career. Eventually, he caught up with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who shared the record of “Male tennis player with the most Grand Slam tournament titles” with 20 Grand Slam titles. Also, he earn amount of 1.7 million pounds as a result of winning the championship.
“I have to pay tribute to Rafa and Roger. They are legends of our sport and the two greatest players I’ve faced. They are the reason why I am where I am today. They made me realise what I had to do to get stronger mentally, physically, tactically. The last 10 years have been an incredible journey that is not stopping here,” Djokovic says. No doubt that we will continue to watch rewriting of history books with not only Djokovic, but also the “Big Three” in the upcoming tournaments.
