Novak Djokovic has freed himself in four sets of Cameron Norrie and will have the chance to play his eighth final at Wimbledon next Sunday. The Serbian champion took more than a set to find the right rhythm and only starting from the second set did he begin to take control of the exchanges.
In the final act of the Championships he will face Nick Kyrgios, who reached the final without playing due to the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal. Kyrgios said: "This is not how I wanted to get to the final. I really wanted to see how yet another match against Nadal turned out.
I haven't talked to him but I hope he gets better quickly. I slept really bad tonight. Probably an hour in all. I felt so nervous. I was just restless, with so many thoughts on my mind about the Wimbledon final. I had never reached it before.
I'll take some chamomile tea to rest."
Does Djokovic inhale from the bottle?
In recent days, there has been a lot of talk about the contents of the bottle that Djokovic inhaled and did not drink during the match against Tim van Rijthoven.
The Serbian responded in a very ironic way to the question posed to him by one of the journalists present in the press room. The Belgrade appeared rather calm and revealed a particular background: "It's a magic potion, that's all I can say!
You'll find out all about it soon, but right now I can't talk about it. Crowd factor during the match with Norrie? It's never easy to play when the whole stadium is cheering on your opponent, I expected that. It was logical against Norrie at Wimbledon.
He is the idol of the house and everyone wanted him to win. However, I managed to keep my concentration despite the bad performance in the first set. It was not easy to close the match, he asked for the support of the public many times.
I felt the pressure in the last few games, but I served well. It is a blessing to serve like this, especially on grass."
