Novak Djokovic beat Matteo Berrettini of Italy to win the 20th Grand Slam and 6th Wimbledon record-length title on Sunday in four sets.
Novak Djokovic of Serbia won his twentieth Grand Slam Club Championship, equaled the men’s record held by Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal of Switzerland.
The 3rd leg of the Golden Slam, which won both the Australian and the French Open in 2021, is now completed by Djokovic. Nobody ever won all four major slams and an Olympic Gold Medal in the same year in the history of tennis.
Early on the opening, he broke down to get a 5-2 lead, but the Italian rallied to force a tiebreak, which he won in the first set. He had beaten Berrettini in both of his previous meetings.
This year’s loss was just the Serbian’s second set. In the second round, he reacted to a lead of 4-0 prior to the match.
In the third and two other places, Djokovic won the match, one break from service, in front of a rudely crowd of Centre Court people that continued to cry out the name of the Italians underdog.
Djokovic has sealed his spot in tennis history as Berrettini’s backhand slice fell into the net at his third match point.
