Tennis sensation Carlos Alcaraz defeated Novak Djokovic on Sunday to claim his first Wimbledon title.
The Spaniard was able to beat the seven-time champion in a 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 victory.
The 20-year-old also managed to retain the World No. 1 spot and prevented Djokovic from replacing him in Monday’s Pepperstone ATP Rankings.
Alcaraz delivered a high-quality performance despite a shaky start to clinch a well-earned triumph in the end.
“It’s a dream come true for me. As I said before, of course it’s great to win, but even if I had lost, I would be really proud of myself with this amazing run. Making history in this beautiful tournament, playing a final against a legend of our sport,” Alcaraz told ATP Tour.
“It’s a dream come true to be able to play on these stages. It’s amazing for a boy, 20 years old, to reach this kind of situation really fast. I’m really, really proud of myself and the team that I have. The work we put in every day, to be able to lift this.”
