Wimbledon 2022 – Novak Djokovic Composure, Focus and Consistency is his hallmark – Sachin Tendulkar
Novak’s opponent in the final, Kyrgios is a 27-year-old from Australia who never had been past the quarterfinals in 29 previous Grand Slam appearances — and last made it even that far 7 1/2 years ago.
In some ways, he stole the show Sunday. He tried shots between his legs. Hit some with his back to the net. Pounded serves at up to 136 mph and produced 30 aces. Used an underarm serve, then faked one later.
“4th straight Wimbledon’s in a row is no mean feat. @DjokerNole‘s composure, focus and consistency has been the hallmark of his game over the years. Lovely to see Novak appreciating @NickKyrgios & the staff at #Wimbledon after this win,” tweeted Sachin.
His seventh Wimbledon title win draws him level with US legend Pete Sampras’ tally of single trophies wins at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The 35-year-old Serbian is now just one title shy to equal Roger Federer’s eight Wimbledon title wins and one grand slam title away from equaling Rafael Nadal’s record of 22 major title wins.
After Kyrgios took the first set on the Centre Court, Djokovic found his rhythm back later. Despite his Kyrgios best efforts, Djokovic got the better of his opponent in crucial moments of the second and third sets. Djokovic then held his nerves going into the fourth set tiebreaker and captured it easily to win the title.
It is Djokovic’s first tour-level win in three attempts against the Australian, who had never gone beyond the quarter-finals at a grand slam before this.
