Watch: Novak Djokovic eats grass after winning Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic grass
Novak Djokovic sampled some of the grass on the court at Wimbledon Sunday where he did some of his finest work ever.

Djokovic prevailed against Roger Federer in the finals of the grand slam with a five-set win, 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6 and 13-12. He won each of his three sets in tiebreakers — the fifth stopping at 12-12 for the first time ever due to a rule change.

After he won the marathon match, he decided to eat some of the grass on Centre Court at the All England Club.

That keeps up a tradition that Dokovic had done when he won in 2015 and 2018 as well.

“If not the thrilling and most exciting finals I ever was part of, it’s top two or three,” Djokovic said after the match.

“It was a great match. It was long. It had everything. I had my chances, so did he,” Federer said.

This is Dokovic’s fifth Wimbledon win. He now has 16 career majors, four short of Federer’s 20 and two short of Rafael Nadal’s 18.
