Jabeur was terrible, but fair play to Vondrousova, that's brilliant from an unseeded player to win it.

Yeah, was hoping Jabeur would win it though.

In the women's game it seems anyone has a crack with a bit of luck and a purple patch of form. Preferable to Djokovic yet again but it would be good to see some genuine rivalries forming.

Don't think I've ever seen anything like Jabeur's performance -from good to awful and back again within a few minutes.

I havenít watched tennis for years, caught a bit of the menís final earlier, since when did line judges signal every bloody shot in? So distracting to watch, just signal when itís out FFS.

Djokovic really is a prize wanker.

I had never heard of Carlos Alcaraz before this tournament and given his record find it surprising that he was #1 seed. But he beat that utter twat Djokovic and just for that he is a hero

Apparently thatís the second time in all of his 70 odd Wimbledon matches that Djokovic has won the first set and not gone on to win the match. And in the first he retired injured.

I know next to nothing about tennis but Djokovic seems a complete prick. So happy days.
