This Sunday, in the final, Novak Djokovic beat Nick Kyrgios in four sets (4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6) and won his 21st Grand Slam title, his seventh at Wimbledon.
He writes a new page in the history of tennis. And these pages begin to be numerous. This Sunday, in the final at Wimbledon in Great Britain, on grass, the Serbian Novak Djokovic, 3rd player in the world and seeded n°1, beat the Australian Nick Kyrgios, 40th player in the world, in four sets (4-6 , 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3)) and 3h04 of play. In the first set, at 2-2, the Serb saved a break point, before losing on the second. With this advantage in his pocket, his opponent of the day went to conclude, on his second opportunity, to pocket this first set (6-4), and already put Novak Djokovic up against the wall. But far from being disunited, the best ranked of the two therefore knew how to react perfectly.
A complicated end of the second set
In the second set, at 2-1, Nick Kyrgios cracked, giving up his white serve. At 5-3, the third player in the world was used to win this second round and to equalize at a set everywhere. Badly embarked, the seeded n ° 1 found himself trailing 0-40 on his own service, to end up saving a total of four break points and then finally achieve his ends (6-3). The Serb then started the third set in the best possible way, even if he was unable to convert a single one of the two break points obtained. It was only a postponement and at the best of times, at 4-4, Novak Djokovic was able to take the service of his competitor and then conclude in stride, to lead two sets to one (6-4). This time, it is therefore the 40th player in the world who found himself well and truly at the foot of the wall.
Djokovic does better than Federer
In the fourth and final set, the two men tied the game, not delivering more than that and showing themselves to be particularly solid on their respective serves. It is therefore natural that they headed for a tie-break. A decisive game overflown by Novak Djokovic, even if it took him three match points to afford the right to raise his arms (7-6 (3)). The legend of the Serb is no longer to be written, but the former world number one is still taking care of his prize list a little more. This is his seventh Wimbledon title, in eight finals played. And especially his 21st Grand Slam title, one less than the Spaniard Rafael Nadal (22), but one more than the Swiss Roger Federer (20). Simply outstanding.
