While Djokovic won the first set, he was then pegged down as Alcaraz went up by 2-1, and after a late surge from the Serbian took the game to the fifth set the 20-year-old found the extra gear to become the youngest Wimbledon men’s singles champion since Boris Becker.

Djokovic also applauded Alcaraz saying that he lost to a ‘better player’.

“I thought I only had trouble with Carlos on clay and hard court but now on grass too! He adapted amazingly. You never like to lose matches like this but when all the emotions have settled I have to be grateful. I have to congratulate Carlos. I lost to a better player today,” the world number 2 added.
