(FOX NEWS) – Novak Djokovic proved again why he’s one of the best tennis players ever with a four-set victory Sunday over Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon, picking up his seventh championship at the All England Club.
Djokovic defeated Kyrgios 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7). He moves into a second-place tie for most wins at Wimbledon. He’s tied with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw and one behind Roger Federer for most all time. He now has 21 total Grand Slam titles and is one behind Rafael Nadal for the most all time.
It was Djokovic’s first Grand Slam title this season. He wasn’t allowed to play the Australian Open due to his decision to forgo the coronavirus vaccination. He lost to Nadal in the French Open quarterfinals.
Kyrgios, the brash challenger, filled the match with his usual hysterics. He took the first set from Djokovic but didn’t appear he could get out of his own way. He blew multiple 40-0 leads and started to take out his frustrations on his coaches, fans and the umpire.
