Djokovic collapses, suffers and gets up


The Serbian comes back two sets after suffering a disconnection against the young Sinner (5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2) and will face the local Norrie in the penultimate round in London

You know, it's not new: in tennis, there is no better poker player than Novak Djokovic.

He deceives and deceives the Serbian, who for a long time walks on the wire, pouts and gives more and more ground to the young Jannik Sinner.

For a few moments, the Italian, 15 years younger than the former number one, believes it, while the buzz grows in the stands and there are not a few who fall into the trap.

There are those who buy the scene and think that the Serbian is going to lose, that the big bell is going to come and he is going to be eliminated from this Wimbledon, but in the end what almost always happens: Nole gets up, counterattacks and discovers the cards: 5 -7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, after 3h 35m.

“I love this track, it is the most important of my career”, says the Belgrade rider, who has already collected 84 victories in London and thus equals the record of the American Jimmy Connors.

He adds and follows Djokovic, the man to beat.

It may not be his best moment, but he has won the last three editions and hasn't lost at the All England Club for five years, when he had to retire against Tomas Berdych in the quarters with an elbow injury.

From there, win, win and more win.

There are already 26 successive wins and now he breaks into the semifinals riding the fourth longest streak in the tournament since the Open Era was born (1968).

For a long time, Djokovic played with fire.

From 4-1 to 4-4 in the first set, and from there the suffering.

He has Sinner makings of a good competitor, although his fangs have not yet come out.

The Italian, 20 years old and executioner of Carlos Alcaraz in the previous season, surrounded him and threatened him, but finally came face to face with the Serb's winning halo in London.

Nole gave up a point with his service in the last set.

Two sleeves raised.

It is the seventh time that he has achieved it throughout his 20 seasons as a professional, from that first time against Guillermo García-Lopez (Wimbledon 2005) to the precedent against Stefanos Tsitsipas (Roland Garros 2021).

Sinner lacked the tie, Djokovic straightened up and in the next season, the 20-big champion will face Britain's Cameron Norrie on Friday, who beat Belgian David Goffin on Court 1 (3-6, 7-5 , 2-6, 6-3 and 7-5) and took over from Andy Murray (2016) as the last local semifinalist.
