ATP & WTA Tournament News and Results: 2021 Wimbledon Championships

Novak Djokovic would write his name in the history books yet again, Ash Barty would dominate, and much more.

Wimbledon Championships (ATP Grand Slam)

Singles: (1) Novak Djokovic defeated (7) Matteo Berrettini 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 to win the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.

Story: It would be hard to bet that anybody else would win a Grand Slam this year, but that didn’t make Novak Djokovic’s 20th Grand Slam title any less special. Still, in the midst of one of the best years of his career, Djokovic has kept his hopes for a Golden Slam alive. As we move towards the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, expect the Djoker to continue his impressive form.

Doubles: (1) Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic defeated (4) Marcelo Granollers and Horacio Zeballos 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, 7-5 to win the championship.

Wimbledon Championships (WTA Grand Slam)

Singles: (1) Ash Barty defeated (8) Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 6-7 (4-7), 6-3 to win her maiden Wimbledon Championships title.

Story: She came, she saw, she conquered. Ash Barty dropped a set in her opening match and in the championship match, and those would be the only sets she dropped all tournament. The World No. 1 said she wanted to win a Wimbledon title and she did just that. The future is bright for the WTA with players like Barty and Pliskova, players like Angelique Kerber making a comeback, and the young talent of players such as Coco Gauff.

Spotlight Story: Felix Auger-Aliassime Breaks Through at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships

Out of all of the promising next-gen ATP players, Felix Auger-Aliassime is certainly one of the top candidates to be a star.

Nevertheless, despite making eight tour-level finals, FAA has failed to win a single ATP tournament championship.
