Spanish number one Carlos Alcaraz has stated that the Wimbledon 2023 win over Serbia's Novak Djokovis is one of the 'happiest moment' of his life. (More Tennis News)
The 20-year-old Spaniard beat seven-time champion Novak Djokovic 1-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 3-6 6-4 on Centre Court.
By doing so, Alcaraz won his first ever Wimbledon crown and his second Grand Slam title and denied Djokovic an eighth title and 24th Grand Slam.
"Beating Novak, winning Wimbledon, is something that I dreamed about since I started playing tennis," Alcaraz said.
"It's the happiest moment of my life. I think it's not going to change for a long time."
In an era dominated by the the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz is most likely to emerge as the 'likely candidate' to replace the famous trio in the coming years.
Fellow Spaniard and Clay Court champion Rafael Nadal took to Twitter to congratulate the new Wimbledon champion.
