Djokovic wins Wimbledon Men’s Singles 2011

The grass court on Sunday was the fighting arena with a cheering crowd as both white bulls came into court, tightened their game face and took their sides.

After a hard-hitting match that started at 2 am, Novak Djokovik claimed the Wimbledon Men’s Singles 2011 title with a 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 win on the centre court of London’s All England Club.

The first two sets, 6 innings to1, were taken by Djokovic with considerably little toil and sweat. His serves were accurate, returns rebellious and almost continuous unbreakable rallies. His shots occasionally made Nadal run from one corner to the other though the effort from Nadal was commendable as he played just like he always does; with a winning rage.

In the third set, Nadal took advantage of his golden forehand, positioning the ball out of Djokovic’s reach every now and then as the commentators agreed that “it’s the angle” that favors Nadal. He, who had made 9 mistakes in the first two sets, cut the count to just one and went on to get a double break with the first double fault of the game by Djokovic. Even though Nadal went on to winning that set, Djokovic held on to the game and won the fourth set.

Along with 100,000 pounds, the 24-year-old Serb has also won 800 ATP rankings and will officially be the World no. 1 on Monday. Although he recognizes that Nadal’s game was top-notch saying “I knew I was playing with the world no. 1 but had to be top of my game” in the courtside interview moments after the match ended. He also said “I still think I’m sleeping. I still think I’m dreaming”. He also said that Wimbledon was the first every game he saw on television and that this was his dream to win it someday.

Nadal, in all-the-more exuberance took up the runners-up trophy with pride and even joked around on the microphone glitch that the interviewee team had for a moment. He said “I know exactly what Djokovic is feeling. I felt the same when I won my first Wimbledon title”.

The fans, families and team of both players roared each time their favorite picked up a point and watching from the royal box was the president of Serbia, Boris Tadic, who cheered in the most enthusiastic manner for Djokovic all through the match.

Novak’s performance has till now been increasingly superior as he won the Australian Open in January early this year, moved up to the #1 spot 2 days ago and now has made his dream of Wimbledon Champion come true. He really slammed the Grand Slam finals and deserves all accolades.
