Novak Djokovic feeling more like old self

Novak Djokovic reveals what was his best match in career Djokovic into 10th Wimbledon quarter-final
Chelsea Rogers | 14 July, 2018, 08:50

"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.

The 12-time Grand Slam champion then raised his level in the fourth set and finished with a victor into the corner to book his place in Friday's semi-finals where he was joined by a familiar foe as Nadal won through late in the day.

The former world number one reached the last four of a grand slam for the first time since the 2016 US Open by battling his way past Kei Nishikori at the All England Club on Wednesday. "I had a couple of chances, but he played a good full game".

"I just think it's really pathetic".

Anderson, a 32-year-old South African who played college tennis at IL, served it out, ending things with a 128 miles per hour service victor before raising both arms. "It feels great to be in the last four", Djokovic said, via Wimbledon's Twitter account.

Djokovic was frustrated at times during the match, receiving two code violations and accusing umpire Carlos Ramos of "double standards", but also showed plenty of signs that he is returning to somewhere near his best. "I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment".

"I just asked him whether he thought honestly that I damaged the court with the racket that I throw".

Now it is about striking a balance between cherishing the moment and keeping even-tempered as England prepare for their first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

Djokovic missed the end of the 2017 season after lackluster (for him) performances in the first three majors of the season due to an elbow injury.

Victory always appeared likely to be a tall order for Nishikori, who has lost to three-time Wimbledon champion Djokovic in 13 of 15 previous matches.

The big Argentine was looking to set up a mouth-watering quarter-final against Rafael Nadal, looking to avenge his defeat by the Spaniard, seeded second at Wimbledon, in the French Open semi-finals last month. Early on he was bothered by the glare off the sun, adjusting his serve and then sporting a cap. I didn't harm the grass.

But the three-time champion here turned the tables on Nishikori, holding his serve and then breaking in the next game to start a run of four successive games which allowed him to take the third set 6-2.

However, Djokovic immediately and emphatically responded with a break to love, and then forged a 4-2 lead when Khachanov fired into the net, only for the Russian to maintain the frenetic nature of the opener with a second break of his own.

"I want to use today's result as a spring from which to aim for a final place". The two began dating long before Djokovic became a household name, and got married in Montenegro in 2014 right after he won Wimbledon.
