Djokovic beats Rublev to reach Wimbledon semi-final


In a thrilling quarterfinal match on Tuesday night, Novak Djokovic defeated seventh seed Andrey Rublev to move to the semifinals of Wimbledon.

Djokovic rallied to defeat his opponent 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-3 and keep up his pursuit of a record-tying ninth Wimbledon men’s crown.

Additionally, the Serb hopes to surpass Margaret Court’s record of 24 major singles victories.

The tenacious victory over Russia’s Rublev by four-time defending champion Djokovic marked his 33rd straight triumph at the All England Club.

They are merely numerical. I try not to concentrate about statistics too much throughout a competition, remarked Djokovic.

“I’m still playing in the tournament, and all I can think about is my upcoming match.
