Novak Djokovic is on the cusp of history. The world No.1 will play the Wimbledon 2021 final against Matteo Berrettini on Sunday and should he overcome the final hurdle, he will lift a record-equalling 20th Grand Slam title. He will join Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on the podium. The victory will secure Djokovic's sixth Wimbledon title, taking him closer to Federer's tally of eight. These stunning numbers speak volumes of the domination of 'The Big 3' for almost two decades now. Let's take a look at just how, these men have made the sport their own by dominating all the four Grand Slams: The Australian Open, the French Open, the Wimbledon, and the US Open.
