A Resurgent Novak Djovokic Reaches the Wimbledon Semifinals

Novak Djokovic reveals what was his best match in career

Novak Djokovic reveals what was his best match in career

Kei Nishikori became the first Japanese man in 23 years to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals and then predicted a "war" with Novak Djokovic to get to the last four. "But I'm still here, so". He is now 266-3 when leading 2-0. Djokovic broke Nishikori's serve seven times, and finished with six aces.

"You're saying in the point if I toss my racket like this I'm ruining the court?" "I didn't see it coming", said Federer. "I don't think it's fair but it is what it is". "I mean, anybody who saw the match, I mean, saw that literally I kind of touched the grass", Djokovic said later.

Failing to take advantage of three break points at 2-2, he lost his own serve to go 4-2 down in what came to be a turning point. That's the worst feeling you can have as a tennis player. "Be honest", Djokovic asked. Again he seemed wound up by the crowd during this quarterfinal, pausing at one stage to give a stern stare to one courtside spectator and later, as the majority of those watching loved him being hit with his time violation, offering a response fit for a pantomime villain. Djokovic looked to be growing frustrated and was warned for throwing his racket into the ground.

Djokovic is a three-time victor at Wimbledon, having won the title in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

The crucial turning point came in the third set, with it locked at two games apiece.

Simon, looking for his third Grand Slam quarter-final at the age of 33, secured the first break of the match to take a 4-3 lead in the second set when Del Potro netted a return. A final break clinched with a forehand victor, and the match was lost.

After breaking Djokovic's first serve to get off to a promising start in the fourth set, Nishikori was immediately relinquished of his lead as Djokovic broke back once and then again.

But the second seed stayed alive by taking the fourth set before the gripping drama continued in an electrifying deciding set in which both players were left diving after volleys and slipping over as they chased after blinding winners.

Djokovic dispatched Nishikori in four sets with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win on centre court but he also felt he was locked in a battle with umpire Carlos Ramos who the Serbian accused of "double standards" in the contest. "I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment". "We were even until the third set when I managed to step up a gear and end up this match really well".

"It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss".

"That was I think the biggest chance I had".
