Alcaraz Wins Wimbledon Title Overcoming Djokovic in 5-Set Thriller

World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz defeated Novak Djokovic in a five-set thriller to win his maiden Wimbledon men’s singles title. The world No.2 tennis legend Djokovic couldn’t win his 24th major.

Alcaraz, the reigning US Open champion, came up with an inspired performance to overcome Djokovic for a 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 victory.

Alcaraz put aside a poor start to end Djokovic’s 34-match winning streak at the All England Club. It was his first championship at Wimbledon and second Grand Slam trophy overall.

The No. 1-ranked Alcaraz prevented No. 2 Djokovic from collecting what would have been a record-tying eighth title, and fifth in a row, at the grasscourt tournament.

This final match between Djokovic, a 36-year-old from Serbia, and Alcaraz, a 20-year-old from Spain, was the widest age gap in any men’s Slam final since 1974.
