REVEALED: The energy Novak Djokovic burned at Wimbledon could charge an iPhone 436 times

Did you wonder just exactly how much energy it takes from Novak Djokovic to win a Grand Slam? Well, now you don't have to...
Novak Djokovic on the stretch at Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic burned the energy equivalent of charging an iPhone 13 a staggering 436 times at Wimbledon, a study has revealed.

The Serbian won a seventh title at the All-England Club last week, getting his hands on the trophy for the fourth time in a row.

It was an incredible feat, especially given the mental struggles he has faced this year following his deportation from Australia in January.

Now, SportingPedia have revealed just how much of an effort in was – right the way down to the last kilocalorie.

“We added up the playing time of the first 8 male players,” SportingPedia said. “We then calculated the total kilocalories burned by each tennis player based on their weight and playing time.

“We converted the kcalories to kilowatt-hours (kw/h) at the rate of 0.00116222222 kw/h per kilocalorie.”

That calculation has provided some fascinating context for what it takes to win Wimbledon, with it showing that Novak Djokovic produced enough energy to:

  • Produce 146 cups of coffee
  • Charge an iPhone 13 458 times
  • Power a PlayStation 5 and 50-inch LED TV for more than 40 hours
  • Keep a Tesla Model 3 running for 48 miles

The study also illustrated the sheer physicality of Rafael Nadal, with him burning more energy in his five matches than Djokovic did in his seven.

Meanwhile, it was actually defeated finalist Nick Kyrgios who produced the greatest physical effort at Wimbledon.

Despite reaching the final and losing to Djokovic, the Australian only played six matches due to Nadal withdrawing ahead of their scheduled semi-final.

SportingPedia explained: “Taking into consideration the different body structures, weight and age, our calculations show that in fact, Kyrgios is the champion when it comes to energy used with 11,567 kilocalories or 13.44 kw/h when turned into electrical energy.”
