Novak Djokovic beats Nick Kyrgios to win Wimbledon title

Novak Djokovic beats Nick Kyrgios to win Wimbledon title

Novak Djokovic won his fourth Wimbledon men’s singles title with a polished and controlled comeback against Australia’s Nick Kyrgios.

The opening set was lost by Serbia’s Djokovic, 35, because to some outstanding serving from Kyrgios, but he ultimately prevailed on Centre Court by scores of 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, and 7-6 (7-3)

Djokovic has won the men’s tournament at SW19 for the eighth time, and only Roger Federer has won more.

Additionally, his victory put him one behind Rafael Nadal’s record of 22 male championships.

The top seed, Djokovic, started more slowly than his 27-year-old rival, who appeared initially uneasy about competing in his maiden Grand Slam singles final.

The Serb, though, never lost hope and used all of his knowledge and cunning to turn the match around.

“He’s a bit of a god, I’m not going to lie. I thought I played well,” Kyrgios said as he congratulated Djokovic.

Kyrgios, who is renowned for both his fiery demeanor and his explosive tennis, became irate when he started to lose his winning position.

On a hot Centre Court, Djokovic maintained composure while Kyrgios argued more and more with his support group.

Djokovic went to his haunches and picked a blade of the Centre Court grass to eat in what has since become a typical celebration after converting his third match point to secure victory.

The Serb, who lost to Rafael Nadal in the French Open quarterfinals and was denied entry to the Australian Open due to his vaccination status, achieved his first major victory of the year with this triumph.
