Nombak Djokovic is in the Wimbledon final. World number one Canadian Denis Shapolo won 7: 6 (7: 3), 7: 5, 7: 5. Sunday (2 p.m.) with which he will equal the record holders Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
Shapolov was the bravest player in the first set, surprising Djokovic with strong stop balls, and the backhand performed somewhat better.
In the meantime a break could not save Shapovalo to the finish – and not even a mini brake at the start of the tiebreak. Shapovalov finished the first set with a double mistake, as there were more mistakes.
Djokovic is vulnerable
Djokovic has been vulnerable many times in his own service games and Shapolov does not know how to use his opportunities. That’s why Shapovalov knew when the chair got into a loud discussion with the referee after the second sentence.
That too ran through the third sentence. Djokovic only defended mostly, somehow bringing the balls back. The rallies lasted and became the most aggressive Shapovalov. As a result, he made significantly more mistakes. In the end, Shapovalov attacked 36 unregulated errors, Djokovic only 15.
Although the game lasted only three sets, Djokovic reached his 30th Grand Slam final after his first match point 2:44 hours later. After the game, Djokovic also said: “As a result nothing was said about the game,” Shapovalov played very well.
