Congratulations to all the Novak Djokovic and all his fans. Nole is the new Wimbledon champion and on Monday he will become the official No. 1 player in the world!
Djokovic beat two-time champion Rafael Nadal very convincingly 64, 61, 16, 63 to win his first career Wimbledon and grass court title this morning.
“It’s hard to describe and I can’t find words to describe the feeling that I have right now,” Djokovic said. “I managed to achieve a lifetime goal and I managed to make my dream come true, all in three days’ time. It’s just an incredible feeling that I’m never going to forget. This is the best day of my tennis career.”
Djokovic has now defeated Nadal five straight times all in finals and all this season. What an amazing run. Djokovic is also 48-1 in 2011 with eight titles and he’ll be the overwhelming favorite to finish as the No. 1 player in the world at the end of the year.
“I was trying to take myself back to those matches and really,” Djokovic admitted. “Perform the same way that I performed those days in those matches: aggressive, taking my chances, not giving him opportunity to take over the control.”
As Djokovic won the final point, he fell to his knees. “Best feeling I had ever on the tennis court. Winning Wimbledon, looking at my box, 20 people, closest people to me in my life being there, supporting me, getting to share that moment and that experience with them was incredible.”
Incredible it is.
