Rafa Nadal has taken to social media to congratulate Novak Djokovic after the Wimbledon winner posted a beautiful video of his two children playing on the Centre Court turf after his trophy celebration.

Djokovic came from a set down to beat Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon final to take his total grand slam titles to 21.

The victory also marked an incredible fourth consecutive title at the All England Club for the World No.7.

Djokovic was revelling in his historic victory a day after the celebrations and posted a beautiful video of his children running around on the hallowed turf of Wimbledon.

The 35-year-old was seen watching his children as he held the Wimbledon trophy, before putting it down to play with his family.

Djokovic's post garnered the adoration and congratulations of the tennis world, with Nadal one such person to react.

Not overly active on social media, Nadal - whose wife Xisca is expecting their first child - sent a message to Djokovic to congratulate him on his victory.

"Wow. Great memory. Enjoy it and many congrats," Nadal wrote.

Nadal was forced to pull out of his semi-final clash against Kyrgios after suffering a 7mm tear to his abdomen.

Djokovic thanked Wimbledon for allowing his children the opportunity to celebrate on Centre Court.

"Precious moment with my family this morning," he wrote, accompanied with the video.

"What a joy seeing them run on this legendary court.

"What a privilege to share my journey with them. Thank you Wimbledon."

Djokovic has since left Wimbledon and is back in Serbia to celebrate his 21st grand slam victory.

Rafa Nadal confirms baby news

Before Wimbledon, Nadal confirmed rumours that his wife Xisca was expecting their first child.

The 22-time grand slam champion has said in the past that starting a family will come after he retires, only increasing speculation this could be the 36-year-old final season on tour.

When speaking to the press on Friday, Nadal asked for privacy when it came to he and Xisca's family.

"If everything goes well, I'm going to be a father. I'm not used to talking about my private life," he said.

"We live more peacefully with a lower profile. I don't expect that my life will change much with it."

Nadal will now take time off as he rests from his abdominal injury as the tennis world waits to hear when he will return to the court.
