After two years, Novak Djokovic has returned to the Grand Slam champion's podium. Since winning the French Open in 2016, the former world No. 1 hasn't had the best luck. 

In 2017, he only won two ATP 250 tournaments, failing to pick up a major or ATP Masters crown for the first time since 2010. After losing early at Wimbledon last year, he stepped away for six months, dealing with an elbow injury that would require surgery.

But now, the Serbian is back, reclaiming the Wimbledon title for the first time since 2015. Many on social media congratulated Djokovic for fighting his way back to the top of the sport.




 





While the love and support is awesome, his No. 1 fan was waiting for him in the player box with his wife, Jelena. Their son, Stefan, was adorably cheering and clapping for his dad as Novak lifted the trophy.


With this win, Djokovic is back in the Top 10 for the first time since October 2017.

 

LOVE. ❤️ #wimbledon #champion
