Serbian star Novak Djokovic, on Sunday, July 10, won Wimbledon 2022 after beating Australia’s Nick Kyrgios 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) at Centre Court.
The 35-year-old also became the fourth player in the open era after Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg to win four titles in a row at SW19. Djokovic has a total of seven Wimbledon titles with his last four titles coming in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022.
The World No.3 started the match on a slightly poor note, having lost the first set. Kyrgios broke his serve and made the No.1 seed work hard for points. But from the second set onwards, Djokovic rose to the occasion and didn’t give the Australian much breathing space.
Kyrgios, who got a walkover in the semi-final after Rafael Nadal pulled out due to an abdominal injury, churned out as many as 27 aces. However, his valiant efforts to get past Djokovic went in vain.
