Novak Djokovic has been celebrating his return to Grand Slam victories since Sunday after a 3-1 set win over Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon final, with the Serbian tennis player reaching seven victories and just one more away from reaching the top the great Roger Federer. Thus, cybetNews recalls the past achievements of the great Serbian tennis player!
The beginning was made in 2011, the year where Djokovic actually starred and showed that he came to write his own history. Thus, in the final of the oldest tournament in the history of tennis, he prevailed with a 3-1 set of Rafael Nadal and with this victory he reached the top of the World Ranking for the first time in his career, leaving his Spanish opponent in second place. After the end of the race he said: "This is the best day of my life. I always dreamed of winning this tournament. When you play against the best player in the world, Nadal, you have to play your best game."
In 2014 the final found two legends of tennis trying to win the tournament. Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic offered a unique spectacle and after four hours the Serbian tennis player reached the victory with 3-2 sets! After the match the Serbian tennis player showed his respect for the Swiss saying: “After the fourth set I wasn't sure if I could win in the fifth. I don't know how I did it. Thank you for letting me win."
The same thing happened the following year with Djokovic winning this time with 3-1 sets and without any difficulty, showing that he was overall in a better condition than Roger Federer who did not have the same endurance, as the five years difference and at 33 years old, it's only natural that they make an immediate impact at such a high level.
In 2018, the Serbian tennis player returned to Wimbledon conquests and celebrated his easiest victory in a final, defeating South African Kevin Anderson 3-0 sets, thus reaching four victories and moving up the ranking of the most victories in the history of the tournament.
The following year, Novak Djokovic made it three out of three against Roger Federer in a final that was described by many as "the final of the century". In a match which, instead of five minutes, lasted five whole hours, the two opponents gave a unique tennis performance and the Serb prevailed in the... points with 3-2 sets, celebrating his fifth title in the tournament.
In the 2021 season, he won 3-1 sets against the Italian Matteo Berretini, while a few days ago he celebrated his 7th Wimbledon by defeating the Greek-Australian Nick Kyrgios 3-1 sets, as a result of which he is just one behind his great rival Roger Federer.
