This was his fourth consecutive win at the SW19. His 28-match winning streak is still continuing as he remains undefeated at the SW19 since the past four years.

Djokovic missed the Australian Open this year due to his vaccination status, and as things stand, he will not be able to compete at the US Open too due to the vaccination rules of the country. There already have been lots of controversies around Djokovic not getting vaccinated and the Serb has time and again made it clear that he will not be getting vaccinated irrespective of the repercussions.

As people were congratulating and celebrating the win of Novak Djokovic at the Wimbledon, the spotlight was also shifted to his controversial stance on the non-vaccination criteria at the tournaments. Djokovic revealed to the media after his Wimbledon triumph that he has no plans of getting vaccinated, rather he is enjoying his vacation and wants to enjoy the present.

Renowned journalist Piers Morgan took to Twitter to term the Serb as their ‘science-denying hero’. He also made it clear that this has a very damaging influence since it is coming from such a personality. Piers Morgan’s tweet was in response to journalist Ben Rothenberg’s post about terming Djokovic as an ‘anti-vax poster-boy’ and he will not be allowed to play at the US Open until and unless the laws are changed, sparked a lot of opinions on the platform.
