Djokovic in tears after Alcaraz loss: “It hurts, but I have to move on”

Novak Djokovic (36-2, Serbia) broke down in tears during his post-match interview after losing the Wimbledon men’s singles final and settling for runner-up honors.

For a man who has reigned as Wimbledon’s most dominant player for so long, the loss was more painful than any other.

Djokovic lost the men’s singles final of the tournament against Carlos Alcaraz (20-1, Spain) 2-3 (6-1 6-7 1-6 6-3 4-6) after a grueling 4 hours and 42 minutes of action at the All England Club’s Centre Court in London, England on Saturday (Sept. 16).

The loss denied Djokovic his fifth straight Wimbledon title and eighth overall, and ended his bid to move one step closer to a “calendar grand slam” (winning all four majors in a season).

The loss was even more devastating for Djokovic, who had won the previous two majors, the Australian Open and French Open, and was on his way to the Wimbledon final. It was the first time Djokovic had lost on Wimbledon’s center court in a decade since 2013, when he lost to Andy Murray (GBR).

It’s heartbreaking,” Djokovic said in a post-match interview, “and it’s very difficult to swallow the sadness in this situation.”

But he also paid tribute to Alcaraz, who beat him. “I lost to a better player than me,” Djokovic said. Congratulations to Alcaraz from the bottom of my heart,” he said.

Although his Wimbledon runner-up finish put the brakes on his dominance, Djokovic is still one of the most dominant players in men’s tennis. With the final major of the season less than two months away, Djokovic is one of the favorites to win the US Open. At the US Open, Djokovic will try to win his 24th major title.

“It hurts to be runner-up, 토토사이트 but I have to keep moving forward,” he said.
