As noted at British news sites that day, the Nadal vs Djokovic tennis match was held at the Centre Court, in London, as Serbia’s Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal of Spain and winning his first Wimbledon championship trophy.

Djokovic of Serbia, No. 2 seed, won the first two sets against top seed Nadal of Spain but the latter gained his momentum and won the third set. Djokovic won the fourth set though.

As noted on various sports news sites, Nadal lost to Djokovic on their last four meetings this year, one in March, one in April and the last two games happened only last May.

The games were as follows; the Pacific Life Open Final, Sony Ericsson Open Final, Tennis Masters BNL d’Italia Final and Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open Final.

However, Nadal had more Grand Slams Finals won than Djokovic, 5-1, three of them were last year including the 2010 US Open, where Nadal beat Djokovic, 6–4, 5–7, 6–4 and 6–2.

Nevertheless, Djokovic now becomes the second player to beat Nadal in a Grand Slam final, the first was No.3 seed Roger Federer, as Nadal aimed for his third Wimbledon title.

“It’s really difficult to describe except it’s the best and most special day of my life. I think I’m still sleeping. I played probably my best match on grass ever.” Novak Djokovic reportedly said after receiving the trophy, as he will be later named as the current top seed, replacing Rafael Nadal.
