This was the 315th victory for Novak Djokovic in the Grand Slams. He is now second on the list and is only behind Roger Federer who has 369 wins in the majors right now.

In the post-match interview, Djokovic faced a strange question. He was asked that how does it feel to be the ‘bad guy’ chasing Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal all these years. Interestingly, Nole gave the journalist a benefitting response.

“I don’t consider myself a bad guy. I mean, that’s your opinion,” said Djokovic in response.

Djoker certainly doesn’t consider himself as the bad guy on the court. However, he is surely inching close towards Federer and Nadal and might level them in the Grand Slam tally if he wins the Wimbledon Championships 2021.

The Canadian star is enjoying some great form at the moment and has already defeated the likes of Andy Murray and Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets at the tournament. As a result, he can definitely give some good competition to Djoker in the semis of the tournament and might prove to be a big threat.

Fans have really huge expectations from Novak Djokovic. With Roger Federer out of the tournament now, he is once again the only favorite to win the Wimbledon Championships 2021. Will he be able to conquer London and win his third Grand Slam title this year?
