Novak Djokovic has won his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title and dubbed “the King of Wimbledon”.
Playing in what looks like his last major of 2022, the top seed handled the hurricane that is Nick Kyrgios, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(3), to win his fourth straight Wimbledon, his seventh overall and his 21st major championship, putting him one clear of Roger Federer (20) and one behind Rafael Nadal (22) on the all-time men’s list. Djokovic won his last three matches of the championship after dropping the first set.
Djokovic expects to miss the U.S. Open later this summer because he’s unvaccinated against Covid-19 and thus cannot travel to the U.S. as a foreigner, and he faces a three-year ban from the Australian Open after having been deported ahead of the tournament in January, although that ban could end early.
Djokovic will get £2 million for winning the Wimbledon title and Kyrgios half that amount.
