Djokovic Beats Nadal to Win Wimbledon Title

By - Kris Fletcher

For the first time since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002, someone not named Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer has won it all at Wimbledon.

Just hours ago, Novak Djokovic beat defending champion Rafael Nadal in four sets 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 to claim his first Wimbledon title.

It was the fifth straight time Nadal has lost to Djokovic, all in tournament finals.

"I've always dreamed of this," Djokovic said afterwards. "That was probably my best match on grass, but I would like to congratulate Rafa for having a great tournament."

He has now won three Grand Slam titles, having previously won the Australian Open twice.
