Novak Djokovic defeated his Italian counterpart Jannick Sinner in straight sets to enter his ninth Wimbledon final. 

Djokovic blasted his way into a record 35th Grand Slam final as Sinner failed to defend the onslaught, going down 6-3 6-4 7-6 (7-4).

In the final, Djokovic will meet top-seeded Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz, who defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-3 6-3 6-3 in the second semi-final later on.

The Serbian tennis player is eying to equal Margaret Court’s all-time grand slam singles record of 24 on Sunday, July 16. Having made Centre Court his own fortress as he is unbeaten there for the past 10 years, he will look to equal legendary Roger Federar’s record eight titles at the grasscourt major. 

Eighth seed Sinner failed to capitalize on the key moments, including two set points in the third. The defending champion kept on applying pressure on the Italian’s serves, not allowing him to settle in the match. 

The 36-year-old was left fuming when British umpire Richard Haigh called him for a hindrance during a screaming backhand down the line and docked him a point in the second set.

The disappointment didn’t break his concentration as he pocketed the match when his opponent netted a backhand.
