Mumbai: World number one Carlos Alcaraz defeated world number two Novak Djokovic 1-6, 7-6(8-6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 in the Wimbledon 2023 men’s singles final on Sunday.
The match lasted four hours and 42 minutes. Notably, Djokovic had won the previous four editions of the tournament.
Novak Djokovic’s longtime reign at the All England Club came to an end with this, since he hadn’t experienced a loss on Centre Court since 2015.
Since Boris Becker, then 18 years old, won the second of his three Wimbledon championships in 1986, the Spaniard has become the youngest man to win the Challenge Cup.
Prior to the Wimbledon 2023 season, Alcaraz competed in the Queen’s Club Championship and claimed his maiden victory on grass. The 2022 US Open and four Masters 1000 championships are among his eleven ATP Tour singles victories.
On Saturday, Marketa Vondrousova defeated Ons Jabeur 6-4, 6-4 in the women’s final to claim her first Grand Slam victory.
