Djokovic would have anyways become world no.1 unaffected by the result of the final at Wimbledon, but winning this prestigious Grand Slam makes it even more special.

Coming into the finals, Nadal certainly seemed the favorite, with more experience at Wimbledon who has been winning the title for the last two years and was looking for the third consecutive Wimbledon win. This was the first ever final for Djokovic at the Wimbledon but his phenomenal form was on his side. He also had the psychological advantage, winning three consecutive finals against Nadal this year.

The first set was something both were after and it was closely fought between the two. The scores remained tied till Nadal made some unforced errors to let Djokovic win the first set 6-4. This kind of deflated Nadal, which was clearly visible in the second set with Djokovic taking the second set rather effortlessly, 6-1.

Nadal was desperately looking for some sort of inspiration for himself to let himself come back into the match. As the match entered the third set he picked up his game to take the set 6-1. It seemed that Nadal was staging a fight back and would trouble Djokovic.

Fourth set saw some of the best tennis action from both men on grass. Djokovic was somehow managing to help himself with some brilliant winners as Nadal was trying his best to keep his chances alive in the match. All hopes seem to fade for the defending champion as Djokovic seemed to close in on winning the set and the match. In the end, a long backhand from Nadal gave the set away to Djokovic, 6-3. A jubilant Djokovic went down on the center court in disbelief, in front of a crowd with some of the great personalities of tennis world and other professions witnessing the whole drama gave a standing ovation.

With this he is the only Serbian player to win at the Wimbledon now making a total of three Grand Slam titles under his name.  After the historic win, Djokovic said “I think I played probably my best match on the grass courts ever”. This statement says it all, how he managed to clinch his maiden Wimbledon title and displace Nadal as World No. 1.
