Serbia bid to secure seventh place at the London Bar starting at 10:00 (GMT) this Sunday, 10
Novak Djokovic provided a place in the decision for Wimbledon this Friday, the 8th, beating the English Cameron Norrie with 3 sets to 1, with parts 2/6, 6/3, 6/2 and 6/4, in 2h34 minutes of play. Now the world number 3 faces from 10am (GMT) this Sunday, 10, the Australian Nick Kyrgios, in a decision that could guarantee the Serb’s seventh at the London bar. Known for being controversial, the ATP No. 40 didn’t even need to break a sweat to reach the top. Grand Slam in his career – he had Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal the day before to go to the final. The Spaniard withdrew from the tournament due to an abdominal injury.
Djokovic will play in a Grand Slam final for the 32nd time, a new men’s tennis record. Until then, the score of 31 decisions was shared with the Swiss Roger Federer. Serbia will have the chance to break the tie with its rival in the number of major titles as well – both add up to 20 trophies each. At the same time, he will try to match Federer’s Wimbledon record of eight titles in London. In the final, Djoko will face an unprecedented rival in a Grand Slam final and will face an unusual situation: against an opponent who has never won, not even a set. In the two matches played by the two tennis players in the circuit, the Australian won both in the same year 2017. It will be the first meeting between them in the Major.
