DJOKOVIC TOPS KYRGIOS FOR 7TH WIMBLEDON, 21ST SLAM TROPHY
DJOKOVIC TOPS KYRGIOS FOR 7TH WIMBLEDON, 21ST SLAM TROPHY. Waiting for something, Novak Djokovic. Waiting for Nick Kyrgios to become distracted and disoriented. waited for the right time to respond to his opponent’s huge serves.
When his own standards were met, he acted.
Djokovic seems unfazed by being down a set, a game, or the match. When presented with a challenge, he enjoys figuring it out. And at
For a long time now, he has not lost at Wimbledon.
For his fourth straight title at the Djokovic used his consistent brilliance to defeat Kyrgios, who was known for his aces, trick shots, and frequent talking, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3)
A total of seven Grand Slam titles have been won at All England Club, bringing the total number of Grand Slam titles won to twenty-one.
“But he was so calm under pressure. That was exactly what I was contemplating at the time! It seemed like nothing could shake him, even in the most dramatic situations. That calm composure is, in my opinion, his greatest asset “Kyrgios, about whom such a statement is unlikely to have been made, stated. “He appears to be thinking only of himself. He didn’t appear to be playing too aggressively, despite the impression that he was making.”
Novak Djokovic beats Nick Kyrgios
Roger Federer has eight more Wimbledon victories than Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal has 22 more majors.
“The more you win, the more confident and comfortable you feel on the court,” said top-seeded Djokovic, who was happy to hear Centre Court fans scream “No-le! No-le!” as he served out the final point of a well-played tiebreaker.
Djokovic can’t enter the U.S. because he didn’t play against COVID-19, the same reason he missed the Australian Open in January.
Djokovic: “I’m not vaccinated and don’t plan to be.”
Aside from his experience (32 Grand Slam finals vs. 1 for Kyrgios), his skill and clutch gene shone in the last tiebreaker, and they were present for two critical games that helped swing the match.
“Key moments,” said Djokovic.
Djokovic resolutely won, while Kyrgios faltered. Kyrgios wouldn’t let go of games, running monologues, ranting at himself or his entourage (which doesn’t include a full-time coach), earning a warning for cursing, disagreeing with the chair umpire he fist-bumped before the match, and hurling a water bottle.
Kyrgios had three break points against Djokovic at 5-3 in the second set. Djokovic held after Kyrgios’s careless returns. Kyrgios waved to his box, sat down, dropped his racket, and grumbled to no one: “LOVE-40! Can it grow? Are you satisfied?”
Goran Ivanisevic, Djokovic’s coach, stated, “He knew when Nick started talking, he’d be weak.” “It occurred.”
When Kyrgios served at 4-all, 40-love in the third set, Djokovic broke.
“It was a massive momentum shift,” Djokovic remarked.
Kyrgios has 11 winners and one unforced error in the first set. The 27-year-old Australian Kyrgios, ranked 40th, has never advanced past the quarterfinals in 29 Grand Slam appearances. The last time he did it was 7 1/2 years ago.
Unmistakable talent. Kyrgios has gained greater attention for his preference for style over substance on the court, his tempestuousness, and his penchant for the nightlife.
Kyrgios tallied up $14,000 in fines in the past two weeks for spitting at a heckling spectator and cursing during a heated win against No. 4 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Wore a red hat and sneakers where all-white clothes are required. He’s also
Australia court next month on an assault charge.
Kyrgios hit between his legs, with his back to the net, at 136 mph, and blasted 30 aces on Sunday. He faked an underarm serve.
No mention of “underarm serves in a gentleman’s final” is made in the 560-page Wimbledon Compendium, although it appears safe to conclude it was a first.
Perhaps a unique player should have won at a unique Wimbledon.
All Russian and Belarusian players were banned by the All England Club because of the Ukraine war, including U.S. Open champion Daniil Medvedev. WTA and ATP revoked Wimbledon’s ranking points in reaction (Djokovic, for example, earned zero points for his title and will slide to No. 7 on Monday).
Elena Rybakina, born in Russia but representing Kazakhstan for four years, won the women’s title Saturday by defeating Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Additionally: Federer missed the competition for the first time since the late 1990s, as Zverev was injured. Three top-20 seeded men withdrew from Wimbledon after testing positive for COVID-19. Nadal withdrew from the semifinals with a torn abdominal muscle.
Djokovic won again on Sunday. As in the quarterfinals and semifinals, he trailed in the final. Like last year’s French Open and Wimbledon finals. Just like in the 2019 All England Club final vs Federer with two championship points.
Each time, he waited for control. He won every time.
Djokovic’s Wimbledon win streak reached 28. I feel linked to this court and tournament.
