Novak Djokovic hugs his son Stefan after Wimbledon triumph

Novak Djokovic went through some very emotional moments on Sunday after his straight set Wimbledon final win over the South African Kevin Anderson, beaten 6-2 6-2 7-6 after two hours. Djokovic started his on-court interview speaking about his son Stefan who appeared on the grounds looking to be so happy for his dad: 'He was by far the best sparring partner I had in the last couple of weeks.

He's under five years old so he couldn't watch the matches live but we hoped that if this happened, I could hold the trophy then he could be there. I'm very emotional. It feels amazing because for the first time in my life I have someone screaming "daddy, daddy!', said Djokovic.

The 13-time Grand Slam winner then met his wife Jelena and Stefan off-court a few minutes after being congratulated by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Kate, tennis legends like Manolo Santana or Rod Laver. Djokovic will now take a rest, he is expected to compete again during the North American hard-court season in Toronto, Cincinnati and US Open.

Djokovic had started the grass-court season reaching Queen's final, where he lost to the Croatian Marin Cilic in three sets after wasting a match point.
