Serbia Tennis legend Novak Djokovic has won the Wimbledon title for the seventh time, beating Australia’s Nick Kyrgios. Notably, a few months ago, the 35-year-old was deported from Australia for not getting vaccinated. For the unversed, most countries have made it necessary for people entering their territories need to get vaccinated. Djokovic, on the other hand, hasn’t got vaccinated until now and doesn’t want to get it either.

Meanwhile, after beating his opponent, he joked about why the Aussie lost the game. The Serbian said first said that he never thought he would say nice things about Nick. For those who don’t know, the duo had a troubled relationship off the court last year. However, their relationship started repairing when the Kyrgios supported Novak after Australia’s fiasco. Since then, both players have had a ‘bromance’.

“Nick, you’ll be back,” Djokovic said on BBC. “I never thought I’d say so many nice things about you considering the relationship. Okay it’s officially a bromance.

Sue Barker then pointed out how their friendship took another level this week when the pair exchanged words about the winner buying each other dinner. Djokovic was about to respond before hearing Kyrgios chime in quickly and the Serbian jokingly quoted his rival, saying, “That’s why he lost. I don’t know if we’re going to make it happen tonight or some other night. Hopefully, this is the start of a wonderful relationship between the two of us off the court as well.”

The BCC presenter also asked about the Instagram exchanges between both players. To which, the World Number three player said “I didn’t reply to that because my wife was next to me. Let’s start with dinner and drinks and we’ll see.”

Talking about the game, Novak Djokovic outplayed Nick Kyrgios by 4-6, 6-3 6-4, 6-4 7-6 (7/3) to clinch his seventh title in the Wimbledon tournament and 21st grand slam to his cabinet. The former is only behind Rafael Nadal, who has 22 grand slam titles.
