Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon

Serbia's Novak Djokovic smiles as he carries the winners trophy after beating South Africa's Kevin Anderson 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 in their men's singles final match on the thirteenth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on July 15, 2018.

Although the president's good luck wishes were not enough to carry a worn out Anderson to victory on Center Court, his three-set defeat by Novak Djokovic at least shows the giant strides the 6-foot-8 Anderson has made over the past year.

After getting his hand on the real Wimbledon trophy for the fourth time, Novak Djokovic revealed he used to make "improvised" versions of it as a boy.

His 13 Slams means that he now trails Pete Sampras by one, but he still has a ways to go to match Rafael Nadal's 17 or Roger Federer's 20.

It took him another six hours and 36 minutes to subdue American skyscraper John Isner in the semi-finals and although he simply had nothing left in his "jelly-like" legs on Sunday, the five set points he earned on Djokovic's serve in the third set gave him heart. "I didn't talk about it, but it was one of - if not the biggest - motivation I've had for this Wimbledon this year".

After dropping the first set in 26 minutes, Anderson tried to pump himself up with shouts of "C'mon!" after holding serve against Djokovic, the game's best returner. "I'm definitely not feeling as fresh now as I was coming into the week".

He came to Wimbledon having won two tournaments in the last two years and none in the last 12 months, his longest drought since his first of 69 ATP titles at age 19 in 2006.

"It feels awesome because the first time in my life I have someone screaming, 'Daddy, Daddy, '" Djokovic said.

Another key: Djokovic handled the 6-foot-8 Anderson's big serves much better than previous opponents.

'I felt really, really good today. It helped me, not just as a tennis player, but as a human being.

"At the same time there is a part of me that always believes in my own abilities, believes in my own quality of tennis, what I possess". Consider that Anderson held in each of his final 27 service games against Isner.

With each successful return the battle moved on to the Serb's territory.

The champion of 2011, 2014 and 2015 can now celebrate another Wimbledon success, which is sure to be all the sweeter given his recent struggles. Angered by fans making noise during points, he told the chair umpire to tell them to shut up, throwing a colorful word into the demand.

Like you said, he hits hard and strong.'. "I had to trust in myself", he said. He blew a kiss toward the stands after another.
