The Wimbledon Semifinal match between Novak Djokovic, the reigning champion, and Italy’s Jannik Sinner was a highly anticipated rematch of their historic quarterfinal clash from the previous year at the same prestigious tournament. However, today’s match was not without its fair share of drama and controversy.
During the second set, Djokovic found himself at a crucial point when a contentious hindrance call was made against him. Despite this setback, Djokovic managed to compose himself and ultimately claimed the set with a 6-4 score.
As the match progressed, another incident occurred during the latter stages of the third set. Djokovic faced disturbances from the crowd while performing his service routine. This led to a further division among the already polarized spectators, with some booing Djokovic and rallying behind Sinner, hoping for a break of Djokovic’s serve.
In a pivotal game during the third set, Sinner had an opportunity to secure a set victory as he had two set points against Djokovic. However, Sinner’s frustration got the better of him, and he vented by striking his racket against his hip. Djokovic, having just saved two set points, responded with a choice reaction to both the crowd and his opponent’s loss of composure. Here is the link of the video:
