Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon 2021 and his 20th grand slam title. I think with this result, he also pretty much kills the GOAT debate.
I made a video before Wimbledon about the tiresome GOAT debate. I think they’re all GOATs in a way, but to be fair, Novak is the most successful male tennis player that has ever lived and he is not stopping here. He can technically win a couple of more grand slams. He will be the favorite for the Olympics and the US Open. How long will he have the burning desire to win tennis matches, tournaments and achieve records? We will see. But I think he is done when Rafa and Roger are done. It’s still a race, but Novak just made a dent in the whole GOAT discussion.
Big kudos to Matteo Berrettini who fought like a tiger and made it into a match despite the lopsided predictions. He served well and hit his big forehand hammer blow for a fair share of winners, but in the end, I think his backhand weakness becomes his issue. And when Djokovic smells there is a problem in the opponent’s game, he pounces like a wildcat on a prowl. This is what makes him so good. Strategically and mentally, there has not been a better tennis player.
Novak Djokovic Wins Wimbledon – the vlog
I have enjoyed doing these daily Wimbledon vlogs. It’s a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. I will start to mix up the content a bit more, but I hope to be able to continue with daily videos of some sort. At least weekly, I will do a review of the week in tennis and what has been going on in tennis news. I hope you find that entertaining. Thanks to all of you who have followed my recaps. It’s not my usual content, but you got to mix it up sometimes.
Big congrats to Novak for his 20th Grand Slam, but also to Berrettini for a fantastic grass-court season.
