The world number one dismantled opponents like Kevin Anderson, Cristian Garin, Denis Shapovalov, before outlasting Matteo Berrettini in the final to win his 20th grand slam title, and a sixth Wimbledon crown over all.

Despite the Italian putting his best efforts and won the first set, his return game wasn’t good enough to stop the Serb from winning the title. Especially in the fourth set, Djokovic sensed the victory as he upped the ante on return to break the Italian twice and won the match.

Moments after clinching a memorable victory, Djokovic was seen gifting away his gear to the crowd as he threw a couple of racquets along with his shoes and wrist band to his fans on Center Court.

The 20-time grand slam champion repeated the same gesture for yet another little girl at SW19.

The entire Center Court crowd gave a standing ovation to the Serb as he was gifting away the racquet and clapped in appreciation of their champion.
