No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic defeated No. 7 seed Matteo Berrettini on Sunday to win the 2021 Wimbledon championship. This marked Djokovic’s third consecutive Wimbledon title and 20th career Grand Slam singles title. That ties him with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the most men’s Grand Slam singles titles.
The match offered a bit of a proper book-end to Djokovic’s run at the All England Club. The Serb lost the first set of his first round match against Jack Draper, but then did not lost a single set heading into the finals. On Sunday, Berrettini won the first set in a tiebreaker before Djokovic rolled through the next three sets to secure the win. Djokovic won 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3.
Djokovic has been favored to win dating back to last year when the 2020 tournament was canceled. He opened for this year’s tournament at +125 at DraftKings Sportsbook and eventually was a minus favorite when the tournament opened.
