Novak Djokovic tied Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal with a 20th Grand Slam singles title, winning his sixth Wimbledon crown.

Djokovic, 34, beat Italian Matteo Berrettini 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 to match the men’s major titles record.

In the next two months, Djokovic can bag his first Olympic gold medal and, if he wins a record-tying 21st men’s major at the U.S. Open, complete the first calendar men’s Golden Slam.

Djokovic previously won his record-extending ninth Australian Open title in February, then in March broke Federer’s record for the most weeks as ATP No. 1.

It’s all been the product of a mid-career revival.

On July 11, 2018, Djokovic was ranked 21st in the world and stuck on 12 majors for two years. Since, he’s won eight of the 12 Slams held.
