«Congratulations Novak on your 20th Grand Slam title. I am proud to be able to play in a special era of tennis champions. Wonderful performance, well done, ”writes the almost 40-year-old, who two years ago got the short straw in an epic Wimbledon final against Djokovic.
The 34-year-old Djokovic says after his Wimbledon triumph: “I have to pay tribute to Rafa and Roger. They are legends of our sport. They’re the two most important players I’ve ever played against. You are the reason I’m here today. It was through them that I realized all the things I need to improve. For the first three or four years I lost the most important games against them. That changed in late 2010 and early 2011. The last ten years have been an unbelievable journey that doesn’t end here! ” (yap)
