Wimbledon: Djokovic reaches the last four after a crazy comeback against Sinner

Wimbledon is not far from the earthquake.

The six-time winner of the competition, Novak Djokovic, was not far from taking the door in the quarter-finals against the Italian Jannik Sinner.

The number 10 seed left the Serbian player nothing in the first two sets (7-5, 6-2).

Triple title holder, the former world number one yet led four games to one in the first set, before collapsing by losing six of the next seven games, then losing 6-2 in the second set.

After one of his usual stints in the locker room, the Serb was able to turn the situation around.

He recovered in the third set.

Author of a quick break, he won the third set 6-3, before unfolding in the fourth, 6-2.

Much better in his match, he then concluded his comeback in a quick last set (6-2).

Facing Goffin or Norrie on Friday in the semi-finals

The man with 20 Grand Slams to his credit had only lost two sets before in the tournament.

But before facing the young Jannik Sinner, 20, Novak Djokovic was already wary of the form of his future opponent.

"He is very confident, he thinks he can beat anyone, anywhere," he said.

In their one and only face-to-face so far, the Serb had won without problem on the clay courts of Monte-Carlo in 2021 (6-4, 6-2).

But since then, Jannik Sinner is no longer the same player, he who reached the top 10 a few months ago.

"I think I have improved in all areas of the game," he promised before the meeting.

In the semi-finals, the Serb will find the Belgian David Goffin or the British darling of the public, Cameron Norrie.
