Novak Djokovic and his Grand Slams
3. Wimbledon 2011
Prior to the final, Novak Djokovic had never defeated Rafael Nadal in a Grand Slam match. But the Spaniard, who was also the defending champion, was outclassed by the Serb who clinched his maiden Wimbledon title.
Djokovic won 6-4 6-1 1-6 6-3 to end Nadal`s reign as Wimbledon champion, and he also leapfrogged the Spaniard as world number one.
Djokovic’s immediate reaction after the match, where he fell on the Centre Court, plucked some blades of grass and shoved them in his mouth, showed how much the victory meant to him. Recalling his reaction, Nole said, "I felt like an animal. I wanted to see how it tastes. It tastes good. It came spontaneously, really. I didn`t plan to do it. I didn`t know what to do for my excitement and joy."
Nadal had defeated Djokovic in five Grand Slam meetings and was the favourite to win the tournament as he was also on a 20-match winning streak at the All England Club. Novak ruined his party and made his fans ecstatic by winning his third Grand Slam.
