Novak Djokovic lifted three Grand Slam titles in 2021, but he waited until July for his first in 2022, when he showed his masterclass at Wimbledon.

The Serbian returned to the All England Club after winning at all three previous editions, and there was no doubt that he was also the favorite in 2022. Despite losing at least one set in 5 out of 7 matches he played, Novak Djokovic cruised towards his 21st Grand Slam title.

On his way to the trophy, he took on a few youngsters but also one home player who received massive support from the crowd in London. In the final, he played against a player who had participated in his first Grand Slam singles final.

Novak Djokovic's 2022 Wimbledon Triumph Summary:

Entering the tournament where he has been one of the most successful players ever, the Serbian was certainly confident about possibly winning another major, as he was the top seed at the event.

However, on the other side of the draw was his main rival, Rafael Nadal, who was yet to lose a Grand Slam match in 2022 before this tournament, and even though he won Wimbledon only twice in his career, this year, the Spaniard's chances to win were higher than in the previous years.

Djokovic started his tournament with a four-set win, in which he faced a break point in the third set when the score of the sets was tied at 1-1, but ultimately, he downed Soonwoo Kwon without any major difficulties.

The same applied also to his second-round opponent Thanasi Kokkinakis, who the Serb bested in three sets, before overcoming also his compatriot, Miomir Kecmanovic, without losing a single set.

In the fourth round, things started to get a little more complicated, as Tim Van Rijthoven was enjoying some of the best weeks of his career, and despite keeping pace with Djokovic in the first two sets, he didn't have enough to take him into more than four sets.

But that didn't apply to Djokovic's quarterfinal opponent, Jannik Sinner. The Italian won the first two sets, and he knew that he would take the Serbian into at least five sets, should he lose, but that certainly wasn't the scenario that he considered when leading 2-0.

However, it was the only scenario that Djokovic could consider, and it seemed that he planned it out well, winning the match in five sets to set up a semifinal match with home crowd favourite Cameron Norrie.

Similarly to the majority of Djokovic's opponents at Wimbledon in 2022, also Norrie went on to trouble the Serb in the first two sets, but then lose the match in four.

In the final, Djokovic faced a player that has never played in a Grand Slam singles final before, as Nick Kyrgios wanted to win his first major trophy. The Australian, too, started by winning the first set, but in the following sets, he just didn't have what it takes as Djokovic won the match in four sets to win his 21st Grand Slam title.
