In a riveting final on Sunday, Novak Djokovic maintained composure in the face of chaos to defeat the fiery Australian Nick Kyrgios, capturing his seventh Wimbledon championship and bringing his Grand Slam title total to 21.
Djokovic recovered from a set behind to win 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(3) for his fourth straight victory at the grasscourt major and to inch closer to Rafael Nadal’s record 22 Grand Slam championships.
