The best tennis player in the world, after a great fight, defeated the 12th tennis player in the world, Canadian Denis Shapovalov, 7: 6 (3), 7: 5, 7: 5.
Novak Djokovic did not shine as far as the game is concerned in most of the match, but he managed to do what was most important, get those most important points and thus reach the threshold of a new, sixth Wimbledon title and the 20th slam in his career.
On Sunday, July 11, in the grand final, his opponent will be the Italian Mateo Beretini. This was Novak’s 101st victory on the grass, 78th at Wimbledon and 316th when it comes to Grand Slam tournaments, and on Sunday he will play in his jubilee 30th Grand Slam final. The match on the Central Court lasted 163 minutes and was as exciting as the previous two matches with the Canadian. They started sui somehow tight, even though they won service games at the start of the match, but then Djokovic was the first to give in.
In that third game, the first serve stopped, the Canadian attacked with all his weapons and reached the break, which he then easily confirmed, 1: 3. He served really impressively during that initial set, he easily got points after the initial kick, and Novak was somehow out of rhythm from the start. In the first four service games of Shapovalov, Novak took only two points. Djokovic held on somehow in that first set, reaching 4: 5 and the tenth game when Shapovalov served for the set. The Canadian’s hand trembled, Djokovic used the third break ball to reach 5: 5. Novak took the lead with 6: 5, but Shapovalov certainly served and took the set to a tie-break. In that part of the game, Novak was better and safer, he took the lead with 5: 2, then he used the set ball at 6: 3 and thus took the lead in the match.
Novak’s torture in this match continued. The Canadian did not give up on the serve at all, and Novak did not manage to score points in those games. On the other hand, five times in the first three service games, Novak was faced with break balls for the opponent, but he only neutralized them in a way known to her and remained in that set. Finally, in the eighth game, he managed to serve as he wanted and reached 4: 4. As who knows how many times in previous matches, Novak won the game of nerves again in the finish. At 5: 5, he managed to use the first break opportunity that presented itself to him, took the lead with 6: 5, and then, with a safe service game, reached a big 2: 0 in sets after 104 minutes of play.
At the start of the third set, in the initial three games, first Denis did not use three break points in the second, and then Novak also retaliated in the next, third game. Novak had two more break opportunities at 3: 3 in the seventh game, but Shapovalov got away with it. He showed what kind of champion Novak is and what kind of nerves he has again when it is most important and when the result was broken. He had the seventh break ball in the set in that eleventh game, he used it, it came to 6: 5, and then he served routinely for placement in the finals.
