World number 1 player, Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz, on 16 July created history by winning his maiden Wimbledon title at the Centre Court in the Wimbledon Championship Final 2023 in Wimbledon.

Alcaraz defeated the World number 2 tennis player, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, by 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4. After being beaten in the first by Djokovic by 1-6, Spain’s tennis player returned in full swag and won two back to back sets – 7-6, 6-1. Post that, Djokovic made a comeback, and beat Alzaraz in the fourth set by 6-3. In the final and fifth set, Alzaraz defeated Djokovic 6-4.
