Djokovic books spot in final after win over Norrie

London, Jul 8 (EFE).- Novak Djokovic extended his unbeaten run at Wimbledon with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over Cameron Norrie on Friday.

The Serb, who has not lost at Wimbledon since the 2017 quarterfinals, already has the most Grand Slam finals in history (32), one more than Swiss Roger Federer and Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who was forced to withdraw from his semifinal against Nick Kyrgios due to an abdominal injury.

Djokovic is just one match away from adding his fourth consecutive title at the All England Club, a feat on par with Bjorn Borg and Federer, who achieved five, and Pete Sampras, who was down to four.

After a catastrophic first set featuring twelve unforced errors and three losses of serve, Djokovic, seeing a historic debacle, kicked into gear.

He reduced the bleeding of unforced errors and overwhelmed Norrie, who, as expected, could not match the six-time champion.

Djokovic, who complained on numerous occasions to his bench, was still not entirely comfortable, but he did not need to reach his highest level to overcome the Englishman.

The Serb will hope to win his 21st Grand Slam, one behind Nadal and one ahead of Federer, and his seventh Wimbledon title.

His opponent in the final will be Australia’s Nick Kyrgios. EFE
