Novak Djokovic realised his boyhood dreams of winning the Wimbledon title and becoming world number one all in the same week.

Despite dropping below standard during the third-set the 24 year old recovered to beat Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-1 1-6 6-3 and in the process won his third Grand Slam title.

Djokovic, who ensured he would displace Nadal at the top of the rankings by winning his semi-final on Friday, said: “I achieved a lifetime goal and I made my dream come true in three days.

“It’s an amazing feeling I won’t forget and it’s the best day of my career.”

Djokovic guaranteed he would be world number one in the new rankings when he beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last four and he followed up by outplaying defending champion Nadal on Centre Court on Sunday.

“For these kind of days, I was practising every day, being dedicated, being a tennis professional,” he said.

“Any athlete in the world dreams of being number one. This is something that gives us a lot of motivation. So finally when you really do it and when you know that you’re the best, it’s just an amazing achievement.”
