Top seed Novak Djokovic came back from a two-set deficit to pull off a stunning quarterfinal victory in five sets over Jannik Sinner of Italy at the Wimbledon on Tuesday.
The top seed engineered a mid-match turnaround to roar back and seal a 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory against the 20-year-old Italian.
Sinner successfully targeted Djokovic's serve early, breaking it four times on the way to a two-sets-to-love-lead. But the six-time champion from Serbia responded by raising his game by a couple of notches on Centre Court, wrapping up a three-hour, 35-minute victory to extend his winning streak at SW19 to 26 matches.
"Happiness, love, fulfillment, pride, [I feel everything on this court," said Djokovic in his on-court interview, when asked about extending his winning streak. "I love it. I think the majority of the players would agree this is the biggest tennis tournament in the history of our game, so this court is the most important one, definitely in my career and my life.
"This court inspired me to take the tennis racquet in my hand for the first time when I was five. Every single time I step on this court, the love affair keeps growing, so hopefully, I can maintain that run," Djokovic was quoted as saying by the ATP Tour website.
