Serbia’s Novak Djokovic once again showed his dominance against Rafael Nadal this 2011 season by winning the Wimbledon 2011 Men’s Singles Championship on Sunday. The new number one beat Nadal in four sets 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 in just two and a half hours. Djokovic now holds a 5-0 edge against Nadal this 2011 season – all in finals (Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid, Rome, Wimbledon).
The high-caliber Wimbledon 2011 men’s final was witnessed by Serbia’s president and a number of celebrities. By virtue of reaching the final, Djokovic assured himself of the top ranking by Monday. However, he underlined his new status as the world’s top-ranked player by winning this grasscourt Slam – his third career Grand Slam win after having won two Australian Open titles (2008, 2011). He also pocketed £1.1 million in prize money with his win-loss record this season improving to 48-1.
“I don’t know how to describe the feelings I had in the moment when I won. The best feeling I ever had on a tennis court. Winning Wimbledon, looking at my box, 20 people, the closest people to me in my life being there, supporting me, getting to share that moment and that experience with them… it was incredible,” Djokovic said during the post-match conference.
