LONDON | Novak Djokovic didn't have it easy against Jannik Sinner in his quarter-final match at Wimbledon Central on Tuesday. the Serb orchestrated one of his legendary comebacks to win 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2. At the same time, he joined Jimmy Connors in second place for the most wins at Wimbledon with 84. Only Roger Federer is ahead of him.
Djokovic also signed his 26th consecutive victory at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. Once again, we were treated to great Djokovic.
In the first two sets, Sinner was in control of the game and the former world No. 1 struggled to find answers to the Italian's attacks. However, the tide turned sideways in round three.
From the moment he was able to break Sinner, Djokovic got going. This was the beginning of the slide of his opponent who is 20 years old.
Maria refuses to lose
Tatjana Maria knows the tournament of her life at Wimbledon. The 34-year-old German advanced to the semi-finals with a 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 win over compatriot Jule Niemeier.
It's the first time in her career that Maria has reached this milestone in 46 Grand Slam tournaments. Not bad for a player who was ranked 279th in the WTA at the end of last season.
Maria is writing a great story at Wimbledon. In addition to her excellent performance on the court, she also demonstrates that she is a good mother to her two children.
Before each of her matches, she gives her daughter a tennis lesson. “Being a mother of two children is the most important thing in my life,” said Maria. Nothing will change. I know it's crazy to be in the semi-finals of Wimbledon, but I'm still a mum.
“It's my best Grand Slam performance. My best result here was a third-round appearance. I always knew inside me that I could achieve this type of performance.
