What a jaw-dropping finish to this year's Wimbledon! After 4 hours and 43 minutes, the third longest final in the history of this event, Carlos Alcaraz is the 2023 Wimbledon Men's Singles champion. 1-6, 7-6 (6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 ending Djokovic's 34 match winning streak at the All England Club.
Carlos Alcaraz, despite his young age has proven to be a great champion by demonstrating resilience, both mental and physical.
Alcaraz lifted this prestigious trophy wearing a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona “Meteorite” with Oysterflex bracelet, reference 116518LN.

It is no coincidence that Rolex has been the Official Timekeeper of Wimbledon and Alcaraz has been a Rolex Ambassador since 2022, the very year King Roger Federer left the playing fields. Will it be a sign of fate?
