Sinner has recorded his best run at a Grand Slam at the current Wimbledon Championships. He would have achieved this semi-final feat earlier at the same venue had he not walked into Djokovic last year. The Italian impressed by putting the Serbian star on the back foot by taking the first two sets despite trailing 4-2 in the first one.

However, Sinner could not stop the Djokovic train once it got going. The Serbian ace rallied in the third set to efficiently defend the Italian’s second serve game but struggled to finish earlier than he would have expected.
