Wimbledon 2019: Novak Djokovic overcomes Roberto Bautista Agut to enter sixth final

12 Juillet, 2019, 20:00 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Rafael Nadal 'Roger Federer is probably the best player ever on grass'

It has only been one month since tennis legends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal played each other, when Nadal defeated Federer on clay in straight sets in the 2019 French Open semifinal on the way to a 12th title there.

And, let's be honest, this tournament desperately needs an exciting match to light it up, as it's been pretty mediocre stuff by and large on the men's side so far.

A great clash for the fans and neutrals alike, it's also been a very good career series for "no tie breaks" backers, with only three tie break sets in the last 41 between Federer and Nadal on all surfaces. Djokovic swept Belgium's David Goffin 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 to make it this far, and he'll face a man who has beaten him twice already this year.

Rather ominously though, for the Spaniard, Novak Djokovic destroyed David Goffin for the loss of just six games across the three sets competed - including a second set bagel - and Bautista-Agut meets the world number one in the first semi-final today, scheduled at 1300 United Kingdom time.

Although Federer turns 38 on August 8, Nadal is 33 and Djokovic 32, they aren't showing signs of letting up.

So, the 2.62 about no tie breaks is certainly an option again in a tournament that plenty of players have complained about in terms of the slowness of the courts. "It's grass-court tennis and I'm going to come out there and play attacking tennis.' And if he can defend that, that's too good".

"The opportunities to play against each other are becoming less, but we still here".

Federer had spent 231 consecutive weeks as world number one and won his past 65 grass-court matches, yet Nadal toppled him to win his first Wimbledon title.

"What has impressed me most about Roger's game is his mobility, he is still able to get to every ball on the court".

Novak Djokovic, the third member of tennis' Big Three, will take on Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in the other semifinal.

"I got a bit tight, it was a close opening four/five games of the third set, it could have gone both ways but I'm glad it went my way".

The Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal Wimbledon 2019 semifinal is scheduled to start at 7:30 PM IST. He's dropped just one set in the last two rounds. "[.] One thing Nadal has clearly never had is an attitude problem so we await tomorrow with appetites newly whetted". Their match follows defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic's match against Roberto Bautista Agut that begins at 8 a.m. ET.

And Djokovic taunted the Centre Court spectators by putting his finger to his ear after winning a crucial point.

My concern is that despite Bautista-Agut winning three of their previous 10 meetings, he's only won 55% of service points and held serve just 63% of the time against Djokovic.
