Wimbledon 2021: Roger Federer Congratulates Novak Djokovic On His Record-Equalling 20th Grand Slam Title | Tennis News





Roger Federer took to Twitter to congratulate Novak Djokovic on winning a record-equalling 20th Grand Slam title. The Serbian tennis star defeated Matteo Berrettini in the Wimbledon men’s singles final on Sunday. In what was a topsy-turvy encounter for Djokovic, he had to rely on his experience to get past his Italian opponent. He won 6-7 (4/7), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3. Federer wrote, “Congrats Novak on your 20th major. I’m proud to have the opportunity to play in a special era of tennis champions. Wonderful performance, well done!”

Even Wimbledon’s official Twitter handle praised Djokovic, and posted a photo. It was captioned as: “When I was a little boy, I used to make the Wimbledon trophy out of materials in my room, imagining I’d be standing here one day”. The post further read: “You’ve come a long way, @DjokerNole”.

Here are some other reactions:

Djokovic has now won the same number of Grand Slam titles as Federer and Rafael Nadal.

It is worth noting that Djokovic has also become the second-ever man to win the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon in the same season after Rod Laver.

Only Margaret Court, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams have done it in women’s singles in the open era.
