World number one Novak Djokovic defeated Matteo Berrettini on Sunday to claim the men’s Wimbledon singles title.
Djokovic came from a set down to win 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 in a match that lasted close to three-and-a-half hours.
Djokovic’s win is his sixth title at Wimbledon and moves him level on 20 Grand Slams with Swiss Roger Federer and Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
Berrettini, playing in his maiden Grand Slam final, recovered brilliantly from 2-5 down in the first set to take it 6-7 raising hopes of a possible upset.
However, just as he did in the French Open semifinal and final, Djokovic fought back and went on to win the next three sets despite a valiant effort by Berrettini.
Djokovic is one win away from completing a calendar Grand Slam, if he wins the U.S. Open, and is two wins away from the “golden slam”, if he wins both the Olympics men’s singles title and the U.S. Open.
Djokovic is also first man since Rod Laver (1969) to win the first three Grand Slams of the season.
