Serbia’s tennis star Novak Djokovic defeated Italy’s Matteo Berrettini to become the 2021 Wimbledon champion.
Djokovic came from a set down to win three sets to one: 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 to clinch his sixth Wimbledon title.
Also, he has now tied Roger Federer’s and Raphael Nadal’s men’s record of 20 major singles titles.

Djokovic is now the first man to win the first three Majors of the year since Rod Laver in 1969.
Also, he is the fifth man in history to win the first three Grand Slam tournaments of the season, emulating Jack Crawford (1933) Don Budge (1938), Lew Hoad (1956) and Rod Laver (1962, 1969).
He can make it a calendar Grand Slam if he wins the US Open later in the year.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.

Congrats to Nole the Djoker. 20 grand slams.
Now he has tied Federer and Nadal who also have 20 slams each.
The question of who is the greatest has become even more contentious.
Federer at 39 may be done, as far as slams are concerned. Nadal is very fit and energetic at 35, and his best chance to add another slam to his collection is next year’s Roland Garros. Djokovic is 34 and in the form of his life. He is the favorite to win the next 2 upcoming slams, the US Open and the Aussie Open early next year.
In the end, whoever wins the most slams will be considered the greatest among these 3 rivals, who also happen to be great friends.
