Top-seeded Novak Djokovic rallied from two sets down Tuesday to defeat 10th-seeded Jannik Sinner on Centre Court to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon.
Djokovic spotted 10th-seeded Jannik Sinner of Italy that huge lead Tuesday, then worked his way all the way back to pull away and win 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 at Centre Court, earning an 11th semifinal berth at Wimbledon with his 26th consecutive victory at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.
Djokovic collected his seventh career comeback in a match he trailed by two sets — he last did it in the French Open final against Stefanos Tsitsipas last year — and improved to 37-10 in five-setters. That includes a 10-1 mark in matches that go the distance at Wimbledon, including nine straight victories; the lone loss came way back in 2006.
Top seed and 6 times champion Novak Djokovic comes back from two sets down to beat Jannik Sinner 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in 3h36 to reach the SFs at Wimbledon for the 11th time in his career.
