Wimbledon 2022 final – Novak Djokovic vs Nick Kyrgios LIVE RESULT: Centre Court ERUPTS as Serbian star RETAINS crown

Date:

Djokovic* 4-6 6-3 6-4 5-6 Kyrgios

That serve and drop shot combo is special from Kyrgios has Djokovic scampering and then scathing at himself.

Djok forces Kyrgios to net another low backhand half-volley but a tidy overhead putaway and a Djokovic backhand wide on the run for a drop shot get Kyrgios to 40-15.

He thinks he has slammed down an ace, the umpire calls it out, and then Kyrgios’ monster forehand is called “out” – ironically it just caught the line but he didn’t challenge.

A huge ace does seal the hold.

Kyrgios to the umpire at the changeover: “I am just relying on the challenges.

“I am in a very difficult position – you have no authority, no confidence to overrule, I’m in a tricky position.

“What happens if that forehand was in? You’re not going to overrule.”
