Wimbledon 2018 was in many ways a throwback Slam. It saw winners we haven't seen in a while, the near restoration of Serena Williams' full powers and a 40-year-old world No. 1 conquer the doubles draw with a new partner. 

Here are the Top 10 moments from the past two weeks:


Novak's secret motivation 

After a year and a half of Federer-Nadal-Federer-Nadal-Federer-Nadal men's Grand Slam dominance, Novak Djokovic broke things up by winning his first major since the 2016 French Open. He did it in front of his three-year-old son, Stefan, who quickly stole the show. 


Return of Kerber

Much like Djokovic, Angelique Kerber had been struggling to return to her 2016 glory. But she pulled it off, and she did it the hard way, beating young stars Claire Liu, Naomi Osaka, Belinda Bencic, Daria Kasatkina and Jelena Ostapenko before finishing the job against Serena Williams in the final, all while dropping only one set.


Serena does it "like a mother"

Williams has been on the comeback trail for a little while now, but this Wimbledon was the first time she was feared the way she used to be. While the seven-time champion didn't register any Top 10 wins, she made it all the way to the final, so maybe now we can officially say that the GOAT is back.


Oldest No. 1

Mike Bryan had one of the most amazing weeks of his career, and most astonishing of all, he did it without his twin brother, Bob. With his performance at Wimbledon, he rose to the top of the doubles rankings and became the oldest No. 1 in ATP history, at 40. He also won Wimbledon with Jack Sock, which is pretty good as well. 


What exhibition? 

There was no shortage of highlights in the invitation-doubles events, including this ultra-competitive point between Kim Clijsters and Rennae Stubbs and Martina Navratilova and Cara Black:

Comic relief

The male legends brought mad skills, too, especially master showman Mansour Bahrami.


Federer's new look

Roger Federer shocked the world by walking out for his first-round match wearing Uniqlo apparel after decades with Nike. He was later shocked by finalist Kevin Anderson in a five-set battle. 


Murray's new gig

Andy Murray missed out on playing Wimbledon because of his prolonged hip recovery, but he still appeared at the All England Club, though in the commentary box. Listen to the two-time Wimbledon champion break down in laughter after a Juan Martin del Potro forehand: 


Upsets galore 

The first week of Wimbledon saw so many upsets it was frequently compared to the 2013 tournament. All Top 10 women's seeds were out by the quarterfinals. The most entertaining of underdogs was Hsieh Su-Wei, who took out top seed and Roland Garros champion Simona Halep. 


Marathon man

Anderson didn't win the tournament, but beating Federer 13-11 in the fifth set of the quarterfinals is something. Following it up by beating John Isner 7-6 (6), 6-7 (5), 6-7 (9), 6-4, 26-24 in the semifinals is something else.
