Djokovic Wins Wimbledon 2021 to Tie Grand Slams Record with Federer and Nadal
By SENATUS Editor | 12 July 2021

Novak Djokovic has won his 20th career Grand Slam, defeating defeats Matteo Berrettini in four sets, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. He ties Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the most Grand Slams in men's tennis history.

The top-ranked Djokovic earned his third consecutive championship at the All England Club and sixth overall. He adds that to nine titles at the Australian Open, three at the US Open and two at the French Open.

"I have to pay a great tribute to Rafa and Roger," Djokovic said during the on-court, post-match interview. "They are legends of our sport and they are the two most important players that I've ever faced in my career. They are I think the reason that I am where I am today. They have helped me realize what I need to do in order to improve, get stronger mentally, physically, tactically."

The 34-year-old from Serbia is now the only man since 1969 to win the first three major tournaments in a season. He can aim for a calendar-year Grand Slam -- something last accomplished by a man when Rod Laver did it 52 years ago -- at the US Open, which starts Aug. 30.
