Novak Djokovic scored a big win at Wimbledon, securing a record 20th
Novak Djokovic won his 20th Grand Slam title on Sunday, tying Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal together, 6-7 in the Wimbledon final ( 4), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 defeated Matteo Berrettini.
The number one Djokovic has won the championship for the third time in a row at the All England Club, with a total score of sixth.
He added that of the nine Australian Open titles, the three U.S. Open titles, and the French Open’s two titles, he and his two opponents have won the most in tennis history. The championships are equal.
The 34-year-old from Serbia is now the only one since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the first three Grand Slams in a season. He could fight for a calendar year grand slam at the US Open that started in New York on August 30-this was the last thing a man did, when Laver did it 52 years ago.
This is Djokovic’s 30th Grand Slam final-among men, only Federer has played more, 31 games-and the No. 7 seeded Italian 25-year-old Berrettini’s first Finals.
For the Italians, this is an important sports day in London: their national football team will face the England team at Wembley Stadium in the evening of the European Cup final.
Marija Cicak presided over the first female presidential referee in the men’s finals that began in 1877. The game started on Centre Court because the sun rarely appeared within two weeks and the sky was visible between the clouds.
Both sides showed signs of impatience in the first game, especially Djokovic-his two double errors resulted in six combined unforced errors. In contrast, the winner of either side was zero. . He faces a break point, but stays stable and stays there, as in every set, Djokovic takes the lead with Berrettini’s fast serve.
“They are the reason why I am today”
Berrettini hit 101 aces, the highest in the tournament. This is the basis of his game: serve points and forehands, which earned him the nickname “hammer”.
Those powerful moves made the judges twist their heads to avoid injury. Occasionally, Djokovic would cover himself, squat down and raise the racket as if it were a shield to block the serve against his body.
Not many opponents returned the ball at 137 mph and eventually won a point, but Djokovic did it at least twice. And Berretini, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall and has a full chest, can surpass most other players’ big shots and keep coming back from Djokovic’s racket.
This is what Djokovic did: He just forced the enemy to work hard to win every point, let alone a game, a game, a game.
In fact, the game could have ended earlier: Djokovic led 4-1 in the first set, 4-0 in the second set, and 3-1 in the third set. But especially in the first game, he faltered in a way he rarely did, wasted a set point, and was broken when he distributed the ball with a 5-3 ratio.
In the deciding game that followed, they tied for 3, but Berrettini used a forehand to win three of the next four points and ended the game with an aces of 138 mph.
He swaggered to the conversion, and many of the nearly 15,000 people in the house stood up to celebrate with him.
However, if Djokovic is not a fighter, he is nothing-he reversed two defeats in the French Open final last month-he is back in this game, and finally Djokovic Kovic backed on the court, basking in the crowd. Cheers.
