Should he win a fourth US Open later this year he will match Laver’s calendar-year Slam of 1969 that has proven beyond all the greats since, including Federer and Nadal. He also holds the record for most weeks ranked number one on the ATP rankings – 328 and counting after surpassing Federer’s mark of 310 weeks in March. Incredibly, when Djokovic won his second Grand Slam title in 2011, Federer already had 16 and Nadal nine.
When things go wrong in the manner they did on Wednesday, the Swiss great will leave Wimbledon with more questions than answers about his future. Facing a Polish opponent who had never previously strung together more than two wins at a Grand Slam, not many had thought Federer’s pursuit of a 14th Wimbledon semi-final, and 47th across all four majors, would come unstuck in the way that it did.
Berrettini is bidding to become only the second Italian man to reach the semi-finals at Wimbledon after Nicola Pietrangeli. And with Auger-Aliassime joined in the last eight by Shapovalov, it is the first time in history that more than one Canadian man has reached the quarter-finals at a Grand Slam.
When the players returned to resume the game that had already dragged on for 12 minutes in actual court-time, it took 15 seconds to see whose nerves had been shot to pieces. That provided Federer with the spark he needed to motor through the rest of the contest after converting only two of the nine break points he had earned during the first set.
Djokovic, 34, is halfway towards becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to complete the calendar Grand Slam, and the Serbian has made no secret that he wants to collect as many records as he can before his career is over. Sixth-seeded Federer faces Italian number 23 seed Lorenzo Sonego in the last 16 on Monday.
World No. 1 and 2021 French Open champion Novak Djokovic and former winner Andy Murray had contrasting fortunes in round two of the ongoing Wimbledon 2021 in London. Djokovic cruised past former nemesis Kevin Anderson in straight sets while 2013-winner Andy Murray had to battle in five sets against unseeded Oscar Otte to keep his run alive. Murray avoided the fate of No. 4 Sofia Kenin, who crashed out from women's round two. Here we take a look at some of exciting action from Wimbledon Round 2 in these collection of pictures.
In the end it turned out to be a Centre Court blockbuster that featured gripping action, a mid-match twist and late-night drama that was played out in tennis’s most famous arena. Both men took a number of tumbles on the slippery turf and when Murray screamed out in agony and clutched his groin after losing his footing early in the fourth set, there was a brief moment when it seemed that it was game over for the Scot.
