Novak Djokovic proud at Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic declared himself 'very proud' after he continued to deliver some incredible numbers at Wimbledon.

This year Djokovic has become the first person to ever rack up 80 Grand Slam wins at all four majors.

He continued to extend those records as he beat compatriot Miomir Kecmanovic 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 to ease himself into the fourth round.

It was his 24th consecutive win at Wimbledon and his 35th consecutive win on Centre Court, and he is looking in ominously good form as he goes for a seventh title in SW19.

Asked what his 330th win at a Slam means to him, Djokovic said: "It means that I've been playing for quite a few years, which I'm very grateful for.

"I'm very blessed to be in the position to compete at the highest level and secure more wins in Grand Slams, the tournaments that matter the most in our sport - so I'm proud of the consistency at this level.

It was another ruthlessly brilliant performance at Wimbledon by Djokovic, who is looking absolutely dominant in the tournament so far.

“I think I’ve been playing better and better as the tournament progresses.

"That’s obviously something that you always wish for as a player, that every match that you play you raise the level of tennis up a notch at least, and I think that is what is happening at the moment.

"I know I can always do better. I always expect the highest from myself, but I think so far, so good, and looking forward to the next challenge.”

“I thought I started off very, very well. Very strong with a lot of good intensity, good focus," said Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic also wanted to reserve some words for his opponent, Miomir Kecmanovic, who is s a player he knows well.

"I know Miomir quite well, we train a lot obviously coming from Serbia," he said.

"I’m really glad that he, alongside a couple of other players, is doing well. I wish him all the best, hopefully we will get to play many more times on the centre courts of the biggest tournaments.”
