"It's really hard to describe this with any words except the best day of my life, most special day of my life," said Djokovic, who tossed three of his rackets into the crowd before accepting the championship trophy. "This is my favorite tournament, the tournament I always dreamed of winning. The first tennis tournament I ever watched in my life."

He was able to defeat defending champion Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.  This was the first time the Serbian has beaten Nadal in a Grand Slam.

"When you're playing the best player in the world, Rafael Nadal, who has won two out of the last three Wimbledons, and he's always been winning the big matches against me in the Grand Slams, I had to be on the top of my game. I had to play my best and I think I played, really, probably my best match on the grass courts ever," Djokovic said. "I want to congratulate him again for having a great tournament."
