Superb Djokovic beats Nadal to win first Wimbledon title
New world number one Novak Djokovic beat defending champion Rafael Nadal in four sets to win the Wimbledon men's singles title for the first time on Sunday.
Djokovic produced some sublime tennis to race through the opening two sets, and although top seed Nadal forced his way back into the match to win the third set, Serb Djokovic sealed a famous victory 6-4 6-11-6 6-3 in just over two-and-three-quarter hours.
Djokovic came into the tournament as the second seed, but was the in-form player of 2011 after losing just one match all year -- a run of form which ensured he would take the number one ranking on Monday regardless of the result of the final.
Being a BBG - Wimbledon's unsung heroes
The pair had won the two previous grand slam events this season, Djokovic in Australia and Nadal in France, but the 24-year-old from Belgrade had won all four matches against Nadal this year -- all in tournament finals.
