Number one seeds Ash Barty and Novak Djokovic, did not disappoint at Wimbledon, both making history. The former won her first Grand Slam title overcoming Karolina Pliskova in the ladies final 2-1. Novak Djokovic achieved his twentieth Grand Slam title, defeating Matteo Berrettini 3-1. The triumvirate, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, have a score of Grand Slams titles each, an amazing and incredible achievement, seeing as they are contemporaries. It is likely one, or more of the trio, will achieve his twenty first Slam.
