Djokovic into Wimbledon semis

Djokovic into Wimbledon semis

Novak Djokovic advanced to the last four at a Grand Slam for the first time since 2016 with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 Wimbledon quarter-final victory over Kei Nishikori.

Nishikori initially stayed with his opponent and hit back in another superb game, but a wild backhand late on handed Djokovic the first set.

After serving his way to a 2-1 lead in the third set, Djokovic ramped up his efforts and was met head-on with Nishikori's increase in tempo, but the No. 24 seed missed three break points at 2-2 and was soon trailing.

When Nishikori then bounced his own racket against the court in the fourth set without being given a warning, Djokovic yelled out "double standards" toward the umpire's chair - drawing boos from the Centre Court crowd.

There were a few weeks earlier this year when it felt like Stormy Daniels and her lawyer had a monopoly on the news cycle. He said Daniels will plead not guilty to three misdemeanor charges during her arraignment Friday.

"I want to use today's result as a spring from which to aim for a final place". "Coming into Wimbledon I already felt more comfortable and didn't need time to settle in".

And when the world No. 28 could not then beat the net, Djokovic seized the initiative and pressed on for a four-set win.

World number one Rafa Nadal produced a performance of resilience and resolve as he edged past Argentine Juan Martin del Potro 7-5 6-7 (7) 4-6 6-4 6-4 in four hours and 48 minutes. I know, as everything in life, we are evolving.

"Anybody who saw the match, saw that literally I kind of touched the grass".

Novak Djokovic is in his first semifinals of a Grand Slam in just under two years, but is angry at just about everything. His troublesome elbow needed attention at the start of the third set, but even as Djokovic looked like he was on the verge he continued to push and prod him around the court. The two began dating long before Djokovic became a household name, and got married in Montenegro in 2014 right after he won Wimbledon. If there were obvious empty seats for the lunchtime encounter, with defending champion Roger Federer in action at the same time on Court One, the entertainment could not be faulted.

"I think it's not fair, but it is the way it is in the midst of the emotions of a match". "Luckily for me it didn't happen", Djokovic said after he romped to a 6-4 6-2 6-2 win to reach the last eight for a 10th time.

"I like the level of tennis that I'm playing on right now", Djokovic said.

But that was as good as it got for the Japanese star, who was playing Djokovic on grass for the first time and seeking to end a 12-match losing streak against the Serb.
