Until this Sunday Novak Djokovic has never managed to win on a grass court of any sort so forget that he would win at Wimbledon. Until this Sunday he was never able to beat the great Rafael Nadal in a Grand Slam match so forget about winning at the final. Until this perfect year Djokovic was excellent but not he is the very best. Odds

After he managed to outswing, and outrun for stretches he dominated the defending champ Nadal as he won 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 for the title at the All England Club which is the third major championship overall, Djokovic was seen crouching on the Center Court, he then reached down and plucked a few blades of grass and put them in his mouth. Scores

Djokovic speaking later with his eyes and smile as wide as every saying “I felt like an animal. I wanted to see how it tastes. It tastes good,” “It came spontaneously, really. I didn’t plan to do it. I didn’t know what to do for my excitement and joy.”

Djokovic managed to put together his best season by any player in any sport in recent memory in a 48-1 with a good eight title in 2011 which included trophies in the Australian Open and even Wimbledon. He managed to rise from the no.2 spot to no. 1 in the ATP rankings as he overtool Rafael Nadal a switch which was really a surprise. Las Vegas odds

Djkovic is the first man since 1992 when Andre Agassi won his first title on the grass at Wimbledon “I want to win more Grand Slams,” “I will not definitely stop here, even though I have achieved (the) two biggest things in my life in three days.”

Today the 24 year old player from Serbia is known as the complete package and he has the title to prove it. He has credited a number of factors to helping him succeed which includes confidence, maturity which took him from the winner of the Davis Cup back in December to a strict gluten free diet which he does not like to discuss.

Right now Djokovic owns a good three of the four trophies in the span of 2009 the U.S Open champion Juan Martin del Portro has also managed to elbow his way past their rankings.
