Djokovic Crosses to the Wimbledon semi-final with a Great Comeback
Serbia’s defending champion Novak Djokovic turned the tables on Italian rival Jannik Sinner on Tuesday, sealing a thrilling victory after being two sets behind, to reach the semi-finals of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
Djokovic won 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, and 6-2, hitting a semi-final date with a British player, Cameron Norrie, or Belgium’s David Goffin.
Djokovic paid a tribute to Sinner, saying, “Very congratulations to Yannick for the big fight, he is very mature for his age, he has plenty of time.”
“The first two groups compared to the following three groups, such as two different games. He was the best player in the first two sets. ”
Djoku, the winner of the last three consecutive Wimbledon titles, continued: “At the end of the second set, I took a break in the restroom, told myself a little pep talk, and tried to put together my thoughts that broke his serve early in the third set.”
“I saw a little doubt dropping into his movement. I have several years of experience playing in these stadiums and dealing with pressures. ”
Djokovic seeks to become only the fourth player to claim the English title four times in a row after Sweden’s Bjorn Borg, America’s Pete Sampras, and Switzerland’s Roger Federer. He also wants to claim his seventh title in the tournament to be within one of Federer’s records.
Djokovic faces British semi-final Cameron Norrie, who won a thrilling victory at the expense of Belgium’s David Govan in three sets for two.
The two players exchanged wins in the first four sets as Govan led twice and Nuri equaled him on two occasions before the home side won the decider by seven runs for five and went on to meet Djoku in their first Grand Slam semi-final
