Swiss tennis maestro Roger Federer on Sunday congratulated Serbia's Novak Djokovic on joining the 20 Club.

 

Djokovic beat Italy’s Matteo Berrettini in the Wimbledon final to win his sixth Wimbledon title and 20th Grand Slam major, equaling the record held by Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Minutes after the match ended, Federer sent a congratulatory tweet: ‘Congrats Novak on your 20th major. I’m proud to have the opportunity to play in a special era of tennis champions. Wonderful performance, well done!’

Djokovic also paid tribute to Federer and Nadal in his victory speech, saying ‘they are the two most important players’ he has played in his career.
