Novak Djokovic made it through to the semi-finals the hard way

Novak Djokovic is through to the semi-finals of Wimbledon after coming from two sets down to beat Jannik Sinner 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 on Centre Court.

The world No 1 and his Italian opponent spent three hours and 35 minutes on Centre Court and for two sets, Sinner dominated.

However, Djokovic then used all of his experience to overturn the deficit and reach the 11th semi-final of his Wimbledon career.

“He was the better player for two sets,” the world No 1 said. “I had a little refreshment off court [between sets], a toilet break and a little pep talk in the mirror… it’s actually true.

“Sometimes, when not much is happening positively for you on the court in terms of tennis and the other guy is dominating, these things [pep talks] are necessary.”
