Kerber, Djokovic Crowned Wimbledon Champions



In Women’s Singles, German Angelique Kerber was at her utmost best, as she defeated seven-time Wimbledon Champion Serena Williams in straight sets to win her maiden Wimbledon title. Prior to the start of the match, both players had dropped only one set enroute to the big final, as everybody hoped for a tight clash.

In Men’s singles, Serbian Novak Djokovic was ruthless against a fairly-tired Kevin Anderson to notch up his fourth Wimbledon crown. Anderson reached the final on the back of three back-to-back marathon matches against Monfils, Federer and an epic 6 hours, 45 minutes semifinal match against Isner. It was always going to be tough for the South African, and Djokovic took full advantage of that.

As Wimbledon concludes, we saw a fair amount of upsets through the course. In one aspect, that theory becomes justified when #2 Rafael Nadal lost to #12 Novak Djokovic, who went on to win the tournament. Overall, this was another great Wimbledon tournament for tennis fans around the globe, as the next major tournament will be the US Open in August.
