Novak Djokovic reacts to winning seventh Wimbledon title

Novak Djokovic couldn't hide his happiness after winning a seventh Wimbledon title as he noted that The Championships will always be the most special tournament in his heart. In the Wimbledon final, Djokovic defeated Nick Kyrgios 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3) to win his 21st Grand Slam.

Djokovic, 35, is now one of the greatest champions in Wimbledon history and he has kept his unbeaten run at The All England Club. Djokovic, who is now just one Wimbledon away from tying Roger Federer's all-time record of eight Wimbledon titles, hasn't lost a match at The Championships since 2017.

Djokovic has now won the past four Wimbledon editions. In 2020, Wimbledon was cancelled because of the pandemic.

"I have lost words for what this tournament, this trophy means to me, my team, my family,” Djokovic said on-court, per the ATP website.

“I’ve said this many times. It always has been and always will be the most special tournament in my heart, the one that motivated me, inspired me to start playing tennis in a small mountain resort in Serbia where my parents used to run a restaurant.

I was four or five years old and I saw Pete Sampras win his first Wimbledon in 1992. I asked my Dad and Mum to buy me a racquet, and my first image of tennis was grass and Wimbledon. I always dreamed of coming here, just playing in this court, and then realising the childhood dream of winning this trophy.

Every single time it gets more meaningful and more special, so I’m very blessed and very thankful to be standing here with the trophy”. Djokovic is now the second player on the all-time Grand Slam record list with 21 Majors. Rafael Nadal owns a record 22 Grand Slam titles, while Federer is now the third with 20 Grand Slams.
