Here’s what Djokovic said- “Nick, you’ll be back. Not just in Wimbledon but in many finals. You showed why you are one of the best players in the world. Congrats to you and your team. I wish you all the best, man. I think you are a fantastic talent.
I never thought I was going to say so many nice things about you, considering the relationship! OK, it’s officially a bromance! Hopefully, this is the start of a wonderful friendship. Let’s start with dinner and drinks, and we will see.
“I am at a loss for what this trophy means. It has always been and always will be the most special tournament. I realized a childhood dream of winning this trophy. Every year it gets more meaningful; I am blessed. The most special court in the world. I am extremely happy and grateful to be here.”
Here’s what Nick said- “Yeah, he’s a bit of a god; I thought I had played well. I want to congratulate Novak; I don’t know how many times he won it. And thank the umpires and ball girls and boys, I know we have a tough relationship sometimes. I am so tired. Our team has played so much tennis. I am really happy; it’s the best result of my career so far. Maybe I will be back again, maybe not.”
