HIGHLIGHTS

  • Djokovic reached the Wimbledon semi-final for the 11th time
  • He beat Jannik Sinner from 2 sets down in the quarter-final
  • Djokovic reached his 11th Wimbledon semi-final

20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic showed once again why he can’t be written off when he is 2 sets down as he came up with another stunning fightback, this time in the men’s singles quarter-final of Wimbledon 2022.

Novak Djokovic came back from 2 sets down for the 3rd time in Wimbledon history, as he saw of a stiff challenge from 10th seed and 20-year-old Italian Jannik Sinner. Djokovic has now won 10 5-setters in Wimbledon out of 11 attempts with his only defeat coming against Mario Ancic way back in 2006.

Djokovic won his 26th successive match in Wimbledon as he booked a place in the semi-final and kept his dreams of winning a 4th straight title at the grass-court Grand Slam. It was an 11th semi-final ticket for Djokovic at Wimbledon and a 43rd in Grand Slams overall.

Djokovic defeated Sinner 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. in a match that extended to 3 hours and 35 minutes. Djokovic looked completely deflated in the first two sets with his forehand failing him but the Serb was fired up after a “little pep talk in the mirror” during a toilet break.

Djokovic hit only 3 unforced errors in the 3rd set as he vastly improved from the first two sets where nothing went his way. Djokovic was completely in charge as he was fired up and pumping the Centre Court crowd up on his way to another memorable victory.

In fact, Djokovic led the applause for Sinner as the Italian youngster was making his way off the Centre Court after a memorable campaign wherein he defeated Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round and knocked out 5th seed Carlos Alcaraz in the Round of 16.

Djokovic dominated Sinner in the last 3 sets, not giving an inch to the Italian who put on a brave show. The 20-year-old survived an injury scare when he twisted his ankle while trying to retrieve a drop shot in the 4th set. Djokovic was the first to check on the Italian, who recovered quickly only to go down fighting in the final set.

Djokovic will face the winner of the second quarter-final between British No. 1 Cameron Norrie and senior Spanish campaigner David Goffin.
