Wimbledon 202 is almost at an end, with the small matter of the men’s singles final to see to, taking place today – July 10.

After Elena Rybakina won the women’s final on Saturday, all eyes have now turned to the match up between Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios, who will go head to head on Centre Court for the Wimbledon trophy.

Neither player is a stranger to a Grand Slam event, with both players looking to add the 2022 title to their impressive careers.

While Djokovic may be one of the most celebrated tennis players in the world, has the Serbian ever won a Wimbledon title?

Novak Djokovic, 35, has won a total of six Wimbledon titles, and is the defending champion, having won the Grand Slam title in 2021.

He won it for the first time in 2011 when he was 24 years old. He also won it in 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2019.

That puts him in third place for most men’s Wimbledon titles, trailing behind Pete Sampras (seven times) and Roger Federer (eight times) – a victory over Kyrgios will have him tied in second place.

Overall, Djokovic has won 20 Grand Slam titles, the same amount as Federer, but b behind record-holder Rafael Nadal, who leads with 22.

Has Nick Kyrgios ever won Wimbledon?

Australian player Kyrgios, 27, has yet to win at Wimbledon and has yet to win a Grand Slam title full stop.

The 2022 Wilmbedon tournament is in fact the first time he has ever reached a Grand Slam final in his professional career.

However, is only the third player, after Dominik Hrbatý and Lleyton Hewitt, to have beaten each one of the Big Three (Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal) the first time he played against them – so don’t rule him out quite yet.

Coverage of the Wimbledon men’s final begins from 1pm on BBC One.
