Watch- Spaniard Alcaraz defeats Djokovic and wins the Wimbledon Tennis Championships


Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz, the world number one, won his first title at Wimbledon, the third of the four major tennis tournaments, by taking revenge on Serbian Novak Djokovic II when he beat him 1-6, 7-6, 8-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 today, Sunday. In a marathon final match that lasted 4 hours and 42 minutes.

The title is Alcaraz’s second major after winning the US Open last year, and he also became the third Spaniard to be crowned on the grass courts in the English capital after Manolo Santana in 1966 and Rafael Nadal in 2008 and 2010.

Alcaraz, 20, became the third youngest player to win Wimbledon after German Boris Becker and Sweden’s Bjorn Borg.

Alcaraz also deprived Djokovic of equalizing the record for the number of titles at Wimbledon, specifically with 8 titles, which remains in the possession of Swiss Roger Federer, as well as equalizing the record for the number of titles in Grand Slam in the men’s and women’s categories, which is held by Australian Margaret Court.

Alcaraz, who retained the top of the world rankings, also inflicted on the Serbian his first loss on the main court at Wimbledon since his fall to Czech Tomas Berdykh in 2013, ending his opponent’s 34 consecutive victories, and preventing him from winning his third major title this year after Australia and Roland Garros, in his quest to win. He becomes the first player since 1969 to lift all four Grand Slam trophies in one year.

Djokovic defeated Alcaraz in the semi-finals of Roland Garros on his way to winning his third title in the French capital, which qualified him to be the only record holder in the number of major titles with 23 titles, after he was equal to Nadal.
