While South Africa was rallying behind local Kevin Anderson during the Wimbledon final today, it was Djokovic who eventually took home the trophy. He defeated Anderson in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2, 7-6(3). The epic moment of his win happened when Anderson hit Djokovic’s final serve into the net. Djokovic fell to his knees and then ate a piece of grass from the court, as is his custom at Wimbledon.

Anderson, 32, was playing his second Grand Slam final, after losing to Rafael Nadal in the U.S. Open final. Anderson had beaten Federer and  John Isner in five sets, the latter of which lasted six hours and 36 minutes, the longest ever on Centre Court. But Djokovic broke Anderson’s serve in the first game and Anderson, who seemed to be battling with right arm pain, simply wasn’t able to keep up.

Djokovic fans erupted into applause as he lifted the trophy into the air.

His wife and son watched from the stands, grinning while dad gave his acceptance interviews.

The win means that Djokovic, who was ranked No. 21 in the world at the start of the tournament, will head to No. 10. And, yes, we’re still incredibly proud of Anderson’s second place.
