Jannik Sinner is looking forward to facing Djokovic in the semifinals.
Jannik Sinner stated he is a better player than he was a year ago, when his two-set lead against the 23-time Grand Slam champion vanished into thin air, after reaching his first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon to set up a rematch with the world’s best Novak Djokovic.
The seven-time champion might be defeated by Sinner.
In the Wimbledon quarterfinal last year, the Italian had Djokovic down two sets to love before the Serbian foiled his hopes and came back to win. The Italian will play Djokovic on Friday in an effort to win his first major. The 21-year-old is eager for the task after losing to the Serbian in five sets at SW19 the previous year.
“Physically, I have definitely improved. I’m lot more robust. I can play for several hours without experiencing any pain. In terms of tennis or games, I believe I feel better. I can play the slice right now without stopping to think if I have to. Before, things were never quite the same. I can approach the net confident that my volleys are solid.
