Novak Djokovic Reaches Wimbledon Final for 9th Time.

Novak Djokovic reached his ninth Wimbledon final on Friday, defeating Jannik Sinner in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (4). The Serbian superstar is now one win away from equaling Roger Federer’s record of eight Wimbledon titles.

Djokovic was in control from the start of the match, breaking Sinner’s serve in the first game of the match. The Italian youngster fought back to level the set at 3-3, but Djokovic then won four straight games to take the lead.

Sinner was again the better player in the second set, but Djokovic was able to break his serve in the 10th game to take the set. The third set was a close affair, but Djokovic came out on top in the tiebreak to seal the victory.

Djokovic will face Nick Kyrgios in the final on Sunday. Kyrgios, who is unseeded, reached his first Grand Slam final by defeating Rafael Nadal in the semifinals.

The final will be a rematch of the 2018 Wimbledon final, which Djokovic won in four sets. Djokovic is the heavy favorite to win the title, but Kyrgios will be a dangerous opponent.

Djokovic’s victory on Friday was his 23rd Grand Slam final. He is now one win away from tying Rafael Nadal for the most Grand Slam titles in history.
