Novak Djokovic blasts unfair treatment during Wimbledon quarter-final win

  • Novak Djokovic equals Jimmy Connors and Andy Murray by reaching Wimbledon quarter-finals

He then failed to convert three crucial break opportunities on Djokovic's serve at 2-2 in the third set, giving away the game and then his next two serves to hand the Serb his second set.

Novak Djokovic believes he is "pretty close" to regaining the level that saw him rule men's tennis after he booked a first Grand Slam semi-final appearance in nearly two years.

"I just asked him whether he thought honestly that I damaged the court with the racket that I throw".

The Serb has progressed to the last four of a Grand Slam for the 32nd time to take sole ownership of second place on the list for the most semi-final appearances at a major in the Open Era, ahead of American great Jimmy Connors. "I'm a different person, different player today". "I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment". Although the two have never met on grass, Nishikori is still hamstrung by the knowledge that the last of his two wins against the Serb was in 2014 in a memorable semi-final victory at the US Open. I think his confidence is back, ' he said.

After seeing off big servers Kyle Edmund and Karen Khachanov, he faced Nishikori, who had recovered from his own serious injury to hit peak form in reaching his first Wimbledon quarter-final.

"It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss". "His consistency, the way he plays such great tennis week in and week out", said Anderson.

Bishop wants stability after Boris Johnson
Mrs May addressed the '22, warning that an attempt to topple her risked handing power to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. May has faced anger from Brexit hardliners in her party who say her plan makes too many concessions to the EU.

Djokovic was seen engaged in a heated discussion with the umpire in the aftermath of the warning and it is fair to say some of his comments and complaints have left a sour taste in the mouth of some Wimbledon punters over the course of the championships.

The former world number one has struggled for both form and fitness during the past two seasons, with an elbow injury hindering the Serbian, while he was stunned by Marco Cecchinato at the French Open this year. "I mean, anybody who saw the match, I mean, saw that literally I kind of touched the grass", Djokovic said later.

Djokovic's mood was not improved by Ramos choosing not to punish Nishikori for imitating his earlier offence of bashing a racquet into the ground.

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. "I hope I can get a chance to fight for a trophy", he said.

Djokovic last appeared in the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2015, when he won. "He's one of the best players on the tour".
