Carlos Alcaraz wins Wimbledon by defeating Novak Djokovic!

Carlos Alcaraz defeated Novak Djokovic to win Wimbledon championship in a thrilling five-set men’s final on Sunday.

 

By defeating Djokovic 1-6, 7-6 (6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 in a exciting, back-and-forth final on Sunday, Alcaraz ended the Serbian’s 34-match winning streak at the All England Club. This was his second Grand Slam title overall and first Wimbledon title.

Alcaraz added a second major championship to his resume after winning the US Open last year, making him the third-youngest Wimbledon champion in the Open Era.

Alcaraz became the third-youngest men’s winner at Wimbledon in the Open era since 1968, who was 20 years, 72 days old.

In an exciting, back-and-forth final on Sunday, Alcaraz overcame a slow start and surged to defeat Djokovic, ending his 34-match winning streak at the All England Club. He won his first Wimbledon title and second Grand Slam trophy overall.

“It’s a dream come true for me,” Alcaraz said on after match interview. “It’s amazing to win, but even if I had lost, I would still be extremely proud of myself for making history in this lovely tournament and competing in the final against a legendary player. It’s incredible”

He showed significant growth the previous year, but nothing in his performance suggested he would win the Gentlemen’s Singles Trophy the following year or he would defeat one of the greatest grass court players of all time on Centre Court.

Alcaraz frequently expressed this week his confidence in his ability to defeat Djokovic in the championship match.

Since 2017, Djokovic hadn’t lost a match. He has won Wimbledon seven times and the first two major championships of this year.
