Novak Djokovic shatters Wimbledon Centre Court supremacy record

Novak Djokovic has been officially undefeated on Wimbledon's Centre Court in the last decade. The Serbian's last defeat was on July 7, 2013, when he was denied by Andy Murray in the final of the grand slam. "Congratulations to Andy, you absolutely deserved this win, you played incredible tennis.

I know how much it means to his team and the whole country. Well done. It makes his success even bigger because I know the pressure and expectations he is under. It is a great achievement. I gave it my all and it was an honour to be in this match, in this final," Djokovic said at the time.

And here is Murray's reaction: "Last year was one of the toughest moments of my career, so to manage to win the tournament today, it was an unbelievably tough match, I don't know how I managed to come through that final game, so I'm just so glad.

I've played Novak many times, he's come back so many times from losing positions and he almost did the same today. I just managed to squeeze through in the end. I understand how much everyone wanted to see a British winner at Wimbledon so I hope you guys enjoyed it.

I did forget [to hug his mother]. I just heard her squealing behind me when I was trying to get down and I turned back. I've got a great team, they've stuck by me through a lot of tough moments. This one is for Ivan too, because he did everything to try and win this one when he was playing.

He's a fantastic person, he's worked extremely hard with me, I'm not the easiest person to work with at times. I've no idea what happened [on the last point]. I can't even remember, I'm sorry, that's how much I was concentrating."

Djokovic is alive, Murray is out

A decade later after Novak's Wimbledon final defeat, the Serbian is heading towards his 24th Grand Slam while Andy Murray is out of the competition following his duel against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
