The 28 year old Serbian, Novak Djokovic, won his third Wimbledon Mens Singles title on Sunday, defeating the Swiss Roger Federer in four sets. Djokovic’s coach, Boris Becker, is a three-time Wimbledon champion as well and Djokovic mention the German from the court after accepting the trophy.
Roger Federer is still one the greatest on Wimbledon’s Center Court — he’s won the trophy seven times and had he won the match it would have set a record. American Pete Sampras has also won Wimbledon seven times.
Björn Borg of Sweden won the title five years in a row, from 1976-1980.
The young Serb doesn’t have the opportunity to win a Calendar Grand Slam this year; he lost the French Open to Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, just over a month ago.
Djokovic has now won 12 Grand Slam events in his career.
Baltimore Post-Examiner is run by a creative cadre of dedicated journalists – some who worked at the Washington Post, Baltimore Examiner and other regional and national publications. It’s the Post-Examiner because we love the play on the word “Post” but we are also hoping to answer that question: What’s next after newspapers? We see a lot of websites come and go – and many simply are not making it for various reasons. We have been a model of success since we launched in 2012 with “a little bit of everything” and we aim to continue to break that cycle of websites coming and going.
