The world’s No. 10 Jannik Sinner disputes the idea that he lost his composure against Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon since, in his opinion, the Serb pushed his level to the utmost degree, which allowed him to pull off a significant comeback victory.
In his Wimbledon quarterfinal, Sinner, 20, made a strong start, but Djokovic came back to win 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 and advance to the semifinal. Djokovic played significantly better the rest of the match after dropping the first two sets, and Sinner had very little chance in the final three sets.
“I tried to see the bright side; I didn’t think that I crumbled, but rather that Djokovic entered another dimension; I’m maturing; Nole had to lift the level to the utmost, or else it would have ended differently.
I want to go all the way in New York, “Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sinner.
Djokovic gave Sinner his congratulations.
Sinner was within one set away from securing one of his career’s biggest victories and advancing to his first Grand Slam semifinal.
Sinner‘s inability to defeat Djokovic was undoubtedly a bitter pill to bear, but it was the Serbian who encouraged the Italian after their encounter. After the match, Djokovic congratulated Jannik, telling Sinnr, “I must offer enormous congratulations for a big fight today.”
On the big stage, there will undoubtedly be plenty of opportunity. He has established himself as a Top 10, Top 15 talent over the last few years since he is so mature for his age. Although today’s outcome was terrible for him, he had a great tournament, and I wish him well for the remainder of the year. Sinner will be trying to secure another successful Grand Slam result at the US Open after a strong Wimbledon performance.
