Many believed that the Serb would beat Jannik Sinner much more easily in the quarterfinals because the Italian has not played the best on grass in his career so far. But Djokovic was very motivated and focused to beat the main favorite for the title and played very well. He was leading 2-0 in the sets, but Novak Djokovic once again showed how mentally strong he is and managed to make a big turnaround.
In addition to making up for the deficit, the Serb completely controlled the last three sets and allowed Sinner to win only seven games. After the match, he pointed out that he had always believed in a turnaround and that he was calm even though he was losing. Novak’s key advantage was experience. He has already found himself in such a situation many times, and for the Italian tennis player this was the first Grand Slam quarterfinal in his career and he failed to stay focused.
This will also be his key advantage in the semi-finals. By the way, this will be his 43rd appearance in this phase of one of the four major tournaments. So,Djokovic has a lot of experience, which cannot be said for his opponent.
And Cameron Norrie had to make up for the quarter-final deficit. David Goffin led 1-0 and 2-1, but the British tennis player was more concentrated in the final and he reached the semi-finals. It was the second time that he was losing 2-1 in this tournament. Munar was also in the same situation as Goffin in the second round, and Norrie came back then as well.
The Brit has shown a solid level of tactical and physical strength in Wimbledon so far. His stamina has helped him stay composed when going through difficult periods in the tournament, but it is questionable whether he is fit enough to beat Djokovic at this point.
Norrie will have the crowd on his side, but that factor can only motivate his opponent even more, who constantly struggles with a negative atmosphere in the most important matches throughout his career.
They have played only one match against each other, and Djokovic defeated Norrie at the ATP Finals tournament in Turin last year. The Serb won convincingly 2-0 (6-2, 6-1).
Cameron Norrie has a really great tournament behind him. He can be happy with his performance, but we don’t think he can stop Novak Djokovic at the moment. The Serbian is simply a better and more experienced player than the British at this moment, so we believe that he will win this match without losing a set.
Prediction: 32.5 under
