With a four-set victory over Nick Kyrgios on Sunday, Novak Djokovic captured his eighth Wimbledon championship and 21st Grand Slam victory.
Top seed Djokovic triumphed 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7/3), tying Pete Sampras' record of seven victories at the All England Club and closing in on Roger Federer's eight-title total for men.
Currently, the 35-year-old Serbian is just one major behind Rafael Nadal's record of 22 majors and one Slam in front of Federer in the all-time standings.
I have no words to express how much this competition and this trophy mean to me, Djokovic remarked. It has been and always will be my heart's most precious one.
Following the thawing of their formerly icy relationship at Wimbledon, Djokovic also praised Kyrgios.
By breaking in the fifth game and winning the opening game with his sixth ace of the match, Kyrgios breezed through the opening set.
He displayed one underarm serve, a "tweener," and perfect conduct along the way.
Only five points were won by Djokovic, who is known as the top returner in the sport and hasn't lost in this tournament since 2017.
