Alcaraz, a 20-year-old Spaniard, overtook Djokovic, a 36-year-old Serbian, to become the third-youngest male champion at Wimbledon in the Open era. The two had the biggest age disparity in a men’s Slam final since 1974.
Alcaraz therefore had youth on his side, which he also had when they first met at the French Open last month, of course. For two sets, that one was outstanding before Alcaraz strained and lost steam. He possessed the endurance and the skills necessary this time to defeat Djokovic.
Alcaraz can serve at 130 mph and hit forehands at 100 mph, but Djokovic has a wealth of skills and incredible muscle memory. Alcaraz is also faster and more powerful. He has experience that Alcaraz, at this point, can only dream of.
Alcaraz, though, is on his way to doing quite an amount for himself if this triumph on a windy and overcast day at Centre Court, where Djokovic most recently lost in the 2013 final, is any indicator.
Alcaraz’s second Grand Slam final, and Djokovic’s 35th overall, are both relatively new to him.
