John McEnroe, Annabel Croft on Novak Djokovic Wimbledon win

BBC pundit John McEnroe says top seed Novak Djokovic came up with his best tennis when needed most to overcome Roberto Bautista Agut. Djokovic was made to work by No. 22 Bautista Agut but still claimed a 6-2 4-6 6-3 6-2 win to progress into the Wimbledon final.

Bautista Agut got broken twice in the first set but started the second set with an early break -- on which he capitalized -- to level the match at a one set apiece. But the Spaniard failed to maintain his second set level and intensity as Djokovic lost just five games in the rest of the match to earn the win.

"Roberto Bautista Agut lifted his game in the second set. The important thing, Djokovic outclasses him and played the type of tennis that has helped him win this thing four times," McEnroe told BBC TV. Earlier this year, Bautista Agut collected two wins over Djokovic after coming from a set down in each match.

"We saw how much tension was coursing through his body in this match alone," BBC pundit Annabel Croft told BBC Radio 5 Live. "But Djokovic dealt with it and he found a way with that high level of focus and concentration."
