New world number one Novak Djokovic beat defending champion Rafael Nadal in four sets to win the Wimbledon men’s singles title for the first time on Sunday. Serb Djokovic sealed a famous victory 6-4 6-11-6 6-3 in just over two-and-three-quarter hours.
“I’ve always dreamed of this. That’s probably my best match on grass, but I would like to congratulate Rafa for having a great tournament,” added Djokovic, who has now won three grand slam titles after two victories in the Australian Open.
Nadal was gracious in defeat, adding: “I’d like to compliment Novak for his performance and his amazing season. “Wimbledon is the most special tournament. I can imagine how Novak feels,” he added. (MS)
