The 28 year old Serbian, Novak Djokovic, won his third Wimbledon Mens Singles title on Sunday, defeating the Swiss Roger Federer in four sets. Djokovic’s coach, Boris Becker, is a three-time Wimbledon champion as well and Djokovic mention the German from the court after accepting the trophy.
Roger Federer is still one the greatest on Wimbledon’s Center Court — he’s won the trophy seven times and had he won the match it would have set a record. American Pete Sampras has also won Wimbledon seven times.
Björn Borg of Sweden won the title five years in a row, from 1976-1980.
The young Serb doesn’t have the opportunity to win a Calendar Grand Slam this year; he lost the French Open to Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, just over a month ago.
Djokovic has now won 12 Grand Slam events in his career.
We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
