Serbian Tennis ace Novak Djokovic on Sunday defeated South Africa's Kevin Anderson 6-2 6-2 7-6 (7-3) to clinch his fourth Wimbledon title here. This is Djokovic's first Grand Slam victory in more than two years. Anderson saw a nervous start, striking a forehand long at 30/30 and then double faulting at break point to gift Djokovic the first game. Djokovic won 12 of the first 15 points to seize early control of the final. Although Anderson looked more competitive in the game, Djokovic kept the upper hand in longer rallies and kept his opponent on the backfoot with changes in groundstroke pace.
