In
a
battle
between
the
so-called
‘bad
boys’ of
tennis,
Kyrgios
started
on
a
dominant
note
when
he
won
the
first
set
quite
comfortably
by
6-2.
The
Australian

who
got
a

over
to
the
finals
after
Rafael
Nadal
pulled
out
of
the
competition
due
to
an
abdominal
tear
ahead
of
the
semi-finals

was
looking
in
fine
touch
in
the
first
game.

However,
Djokovic

the
six-time
champion
and
three-time
winner
in
a
row,
came
back
strongly
to
win
back-to-back
sets
by
a
margin
of
6-3,
6-4
and
pushed
Kyrgios
on
the
backfoot.

The
Aussie,
however,
came
back
strongly
in
the
fourth
set
and
took
a
lead
of
6-5.
But
Djokovic

showed
his
class
to
equalise
it
to
6-6
and
went
on
to
win
the
tie-breaker
7-1.

By

Till
Now

Djokovic
has
now
won
13
of
his
last
15
grand
slam
matches
after
losing
the
first
set.
The
only
exceptions
in
that
run
came
in
the
2021
US
Open
final
defeat
to
Daniil
Medvedev
and
in
the
French
Open
quarter-final
loss
to
Nadal
this
year.

The
top-seeded
Djokovic
ran
his
unbeaten
run
at
the
grass-court
Grand
Slam
tournament
to
28
matches
and
raised
his
career
haul
to
21
major
trophies.

Among
men,
only
Federer,
with
eight,
has
won
more
titles
at
Wimbledon
than
Djokovic.
In
the
professional
era,
only
Federer
was
older
(by
less
than
a
year)
than
the
35-year-old
Djokovic
when
winning
at
the
All
England
Club.

The
40th-ranked
Kyrgios
was
trying
to
become
the
first
unseeded
men’s
champion
at
Wimbledon
since
Goran
Ivanisevic
in
2001.
Ivanisevic
is
now
Djokovic’s
coach
and
was
in
the
Centre
Court
guest
box
for
the
match.

Kyrgios
is
a
27-year-old
from
Australia
who
never
had
been
past
the
quarterfinals
in
29
previous
Grand
Slam
appearances

and
last
made
it
even
that
far
7
1/2
years
ago.


Data
slam:
Djokovic’s
Wimbledon
dominance
continues

At
35
years
and
49
days
old,
Djokovic
became
the
second-oldest
man
to
lift
the
Wimbledon
title
in
the
Open
Era,
and
the
Serbian’s
four
consecutive
successes
at
the
All
England
Club
only
rank
behind
the
five-win
streaks
of
Bjorn
Borg
(1976-1980)
and
Federer
(2003-2007).

Djokovic
has
also
won
86
times
at
the
London
major,
his
best
record
in
a
single
grand
slam,
with
only
Federer
(105)
winning
more
matches
at
Wimbledon.

Meanwhile,
having
lost
the
opening
set
in
each
of
his
past
three
matches,
Djokovic
became
the
first
player
in
the
Open
Era
to
win
the
title
at
Wimbledon
after
dropping
the
first
set
in
the
quarter-final,
semi-finals
and
final

and
the
first
overall
since
Ted
Schroeder
in
1949.
