    Wimbledon 2023 final Live Updates: Not the start Alcaraz would have wanted

    What a return! That was out wide to Djokovic on the forehand side and the Serb responded with a destructive cross court return well outside the reach of the Spaniard. 0-30 for Djokovic. A gust of wind at the time of Djokovic’s return and he adjusted supremely to gain three break-point opportunities. Alcaraz saved one after an unforced error from Djokovic and then another with a powerful forehand return. But Djokovic became third time lucky! What a break of serve

    Wimbledon 2023 final Live Updates: Djokovic on the final against Alcaraz

    “I don’t think many people expected him to play so well [on grass] because his game is basically built and constructed and developed for clay mostly or slower hard courts. But he’s been incredibly successful in adapting to the surfaces and demands and challenges of opponents on a given day. I see this as a great trait, as a great virtue. I see this as one of my biggest strengths throughout my career, that I was able to constantly develop, adapt, and adjust my game depending on the challenges basically. That’s what he’s doing very early on in his career.”
