Novak Djokovic won his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title and 21st Grand Slam title after defeating Nick Kyrgios in the final.

The 2022 Wimbledon final was the thirty-second Grand Slam final for Novak Djokovic and first Grand Slam final for Nick Kyrgios. The Serbian entered the match with more experience and also as the man who triumphed in the All England Club every time since 2018. On the other hand, the 27-years-old Australian wanted to prove his qualities against the 20-time Grand Slam champion and win his first major.

Everything seemed to go well for Kyrgios in the first set. He hit 14 winners and only 4 unforced errors and didn't face a single break point throughout the set. On the other hand, Djokovic was a bit shaky at the start as in the previous matches at this year's tournament and so the Australian won the first set 6-4 in just 32 minutes.

In the second set, Djokovic stepped up his game as he usually does and in the fourth game he got his first break of the match. It seemed that it won't be enough as his opponent had a total of 4 breakpoints in the ninth game of the set when the Serbian was serving for the set, but he couldn't use them as the 20-time Grand Slam champion showed his experience and won the set 6-3.

6-time Wimbledon champion had two break points also in the first game of the third set, but Kyrgios held his serve and it appeared that fans on the Centre Court will witness the first tie-break of the match. Yet, the Australian lost a 40-0 lead in the ninth game as Djokovic won 7 points in a row and eventually won the third set 6-4 to lead the match 2-1.

Both players were really solid on their service games in the fourth set and there were no break points in the first twelve games and so it had to be decided in a tie-break. All the experience of the 35-years-old Serbian showed in the tie-break as he prevailed to win it 7-3 and lift his 21st Grand Slam title.
