Seventh Wimbledon title for unbeatable Djokovic

by Kolkata Today

Serbian Novak Djokovic underlined his recent dominance at Wimbledon with a composed and controlled fightback against Australia’s Nick Kyrgios to win a fourth consecutive men’s singles title.

Serbia’s Djokovic, 35, lost the first set after some incredible serving from Kyrgios, but ended up winning 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (7-3) on Centre Court.

In a new role as the quiet man of Centre Court, the relentless Novak Djokovic fended off a chatty, chuntering Nick Kyrgios in an absorbing Wimbledon final for a familiar ending and his fourth successive title.

The 4th man in the Open Era to record a streak of 4 consecutive Wimbledon titles.

Playing in the broiling heat of the All England Club, where temperatures exceeded 35 degrees Celsius, and with his opponent regularly talking to himself and his players’ box between points, Djokovic also put himself level with his boyhood idol Pete Sampras on seven titles.
Now only Roger Federer, with eight, has won more.
The Serb’s victory gave Djokovic his 21st Grand Slam title, taking him to within one of Rafael Nadal’s portfolio of 22.
