Carlos Alcaraz has won the Wimbledon men’s singles title for the first time to end Novak Djokovic’s winning streak.
How Alcaraz Won The Wimbledon Against Djokovic
The 20-year-old Spaniard beat his Serbian opponent in an epic five set match, 1-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 3-6 6-4, to lift the trophy.
The Spaniard came from loosing his first set to win the next two and final set to become the youngest man to lift the Challenge Cup since 18-year-old Boris Becker won the second of his three Wimbledon titles in 1986.
What The Victory Meant For Alcaraz
Alcaraz’s win means he got his second grand slam win after claiming the 2022 US Open and remain as the world number one.
Prior to 20-year-old Carlos Alcaraz winning, it had been more than 20 years since a player outside the “Big Four” won the men’s singles title at Wimbledon.
In attendance to witness his victory were the Princess of Wales, Prince George and Princess Charlotte who watched from the royal box on Centre Court.
Implications of the Loss to Djokovic
For Novak Djokovic, the loss stopped him from gaining his eighth Wimbledon title which would have put him level with Roger Federer.
The number two seed had been on track for his 24th grand slam win and his fifth consecutive Wimbledon victory in a row – except for the 2020 tournament which was cancelled because of COVID-19 but succumbed to the Spaniard resilience to power him to victory.
