Yesterday's round of 0 match against Janik Siner is the seventh time in Novak Djokovic's career that he came back and won after losing 2-XNUMX in sets. It happened three times at Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon yesterday made a turnaround in the match with Yannick Siner from Italy and from 0-2 in sets, eventually won the match 3-2 (5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2). With that, the Serbian scheduled a semi-final that will be played on Friday, and his opponent is Cameron Norrie from Great Britain.

This is the seventh time in his career that Novak Djokovic manages to come back and win after losing the match 0-2 in sets. Such a comeback is considered one of the most difficult achievements in tennis, because it is a great mental and physical effort to make a comeback after going down 0-2 in sets. That has happened to Novak three times at Wimbledon.

Djokovic previously had such upsets at Wimbledon against Kevin Anderson in the round of 2015 in 2005 and against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in 18 in the second round. Novak was XNUMX years old then.

The Serbian at Wimbledon has so far played 11 matches in five sets and his win-loss ratio is 10-1. The six-time Wimbledon winner lost only one match in five sets at the English Grand Slam, and that was in the fourth round in 2006 against Mario Ancic, when he was 19 years old.

In five-set matches, Djokovic is 37-10 in his career. Nole won the last eight matches in five sets that he played. The only player in tennis history who has won more five-set matches than Novak is Romanian Ilie Nastase (42-23 wins-losses).
