Novak Djokovic rules the world of tennis at the moment, and he ascertained his dominance once again by winning the Wimbledon Championships on Sunday night.
With his win, Djokovic became the first man in 71 years to win at the All English Club after facing match points in the final. He came back all-time great Roger Federer in an unprecedented tiebreaker, after a match that was as grueling as it gets.
The defending champion had to hold his nerve multiple times, and when it was all said and done, he hoisted the trophy for the second time running.
With his win, Djokovic has now earned 16 Grand Slams. It moves him closer to the only men who have more; Roger Federer (20) and Rafael Nadal (18).
Federer has been the undisputed king of the grass courts for the better part of 20 years. He has won Wimbledon 8 times, and this appearance was his record 12th in the finals.
However, this final was unlike any other. The match was outstandingly gruesome, with both players at their peak performances. Both men pushed each other to the limit, and the match will definitely be spoken of for years.
Federer kept falling behind in the beginning stages, but he came back. However, Djokovic wanted it more, and the 32-year-old Serbian got the win.
