We could rely on numbers to explain Novak Djokovic's greatness. Talk about the sixth roar at the Championships or the conquest of the twentieth Grand Slam at Wimbledon 2021. It would probably be the most effective (and obviously the simplest) method of highlighting reality.
The Serbian is the greatest of the greatests. In the first, historical final with an Italian tennis player at the London Slam, the number one of the group definitively breaks the balance during the third set. "Matteo, Matteo, Matteo" shouts the crowd on 3-2 15-40.
The reaction of Djokovic, who smiles, takes the form of four consecutive points with the service. The partial number four is decided instead between the sixth and the seventh game. With Djokovic on 15-30, on serve, he avoids all problems with magic.
At his thirtieth career appearance in a Grand Slam final, that is, only one length from the 'king' of the tournament, the Serbian does not take advantage of an initial 5-2 advantage and even finds himself chasing.
A little bad. At the threshold of three and a half hours of play, the 6-7 (5) 6-4 6-4 6-4 is a manifesto.
