Novak Djokovic defeated Rafa Nadal to claim the 125th running of Wimbledon, the most cherished title in tennis and the oldest tennis tournament, 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3. Djokovic took the role Nadal usually plays by winning all the long rallies and playing defense. Nadal looked uncomfortable with the role reversal and annoyed by Djokovic’s reach and power. While occasionally having mental lapses, for the most part, Novak stayed the course, keeping his first serve percentage high and attacking Nadal’s second serve and backhand. He is the first player besides Nadal or Federer to win Wimbledon in eight years. Novak takes the #1 player in the world role and will be the favorite to win the U.S. Open for the first time ever. Let’s see how he handles the pressure. He has an amazing record of 47-1 this season, with his lone loss coming to Federer in the semis of the French Open.
