Two sets of World No. 1 are not enough for Yank Sinner to beat the tournament’s favorite, Novak Djokovic, the protagonist of a stunning comeback delivered for the eleventh time in the semi-finals at Wimbledon. However, the performance of the South Tyrolean, No. 10 of seeding, the capital, which on the lawns of Church Road, where it has not won before this year, still dominates the Serbian champion for more than an hour and a half, flirting with the idea of making it to the first half Grand Slam final.
“Obviously I am disappointed and even angry with the defeat because I never like to lose – Sinner analysis – but I should be proud of what I have done. I have never fooled myself that I won, and if Novak wins here six times there will be a reason. He has played well. Very good today too, but I think I forced him to play that way.” Because at the end of a very intense match, the experience of Djokovic – 14 years and 328 days more mature than Sinner – is to shift the balance. Settlement of a match, now hacked, that updates its numbers: A second success against Sinner equates to a 26th straight win at Wimbledon, where Noll has been unbeaten for five years (2017), when he injured his shoulder against Thomas Berdych. Thus the successes in the English noble promoters rise to 84, as Jimmy Connors (the same number is also in the semi-finals in London), behind only Federer (105). Approaching Grand Slam semi-final account: 43 Djokovic, three more than the Swiss.
From great delusion to recent disappointment: despite suffering a break in the opening, the start of the bout is a sign of Sinner who has outlasted the King of Wimbledon six times with his own weapons: tempo, intensity and pressure. With the initial defect scrapped, the 20-year-old from San Candido restored parity in the half hour and then grabs serve in the eleventh game. On the wings of the first group, Sinner immediately also leads in the second: he holds striking turns with power and doubles the advantage. But only when the blue team flirts with the company does Djokovic suddenly raise his tennis level, become unplayable on his serve rounds, break Sinner three times, and drag the match into the fifth set. Sener commented, “I know what he changed about his game to get me in trouble but I’d rather not say it in public. He’ll play against him again, and I’ll keep that in mind.” At the critical break opening, the blue is back to being aggressive, but it hits the breaker at the opening forcing it to an impossible climb. At the first match point, Djokovic left him no way out. “I always believed I could turn the game around, I was really good physically – in the words of Djokovic -. It was just a matter of changing the stalemate in the game on a mental level. Experience made the difference. The start of the third match was decisive. Set, being able to grab serve immediately. On Anyway, congratulations to Sinner, he’s destined for a great future.”
