Novak Djokovic complains of 'hole' on Centre Court

Novak Djokovic complains of 'hole' on Centre Court

"He was one of the very few players and athletes that have been successful and during their active career studied, as well, studied law, which is not an easy thing to study".

"It's like going to work, you can't produce the best every single day but you have to make sure your average is as high as possible".

Such a statistic would not be a concern to many but he had become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time. Hence in this match, it is predicted that Novak Djokovic will win.

But there were no surprises for the 18-time major champion, who kept his hopes of a record eighth Wimbledon title alive with a 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7/4) victory.

Czech world number 15 Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up, goes on to face seven-time champion Roger Federer for a place in Sunday's final.

The 30-year-old Serb said his right elbow had been bothering him off-and-for over a year and a half. Querrey had only ever once before reached the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam tournament, and that came at Wimbledon a year ago. The level of pain was always increasing and today was the worst day.

This is Querrey's 42nd Grand Slam tournament, the most ever played by a man in the Open era before getting to his first semifinal.

"All the treatments couldn't really help".

"It was a friendly talk between Mario and I. First of all, I spoke to Andre and he absolutely agreed with Mario being that second person who might potentially be spending a little bit more time with me on the road".

Novak Djokovic is in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, but will have to overcome a shoulder injury.

Novak Djokovic has slammed Wimbledon officials for a scheduling debacle that has left the triple champion playing catch-up against his quarterfinal rivals. He was to play Adrian Mannarino.

"Those kinds of circumstances don't really help".

"But I tried. I tried what I could do from yesterday to get it in the condition where I'm able to play". Two points after the exchange, the match was over. For an athlete in an individual sport, there is no way out when you are injured. "I was watching out my step all the time when I had to slow down". "I guess a break is something I will have to consider right now".

He will play 11th seeded Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon quarterfinals on Thursday. Wade was also the last British woman to win the title a year earlier. Wimbledon, like the Australian and French Opens, has no fifth-set tiebreaker in the final set. Former coach Boris Becker in the commentary box said "the passion is back" as Djokovic let out a roar on Centre Court as he vanquished Gulbis.

But, serving at barely more than 100 miles per hour, he was routed in the breaker and immediately called for further treatment.

That was the signal for Djokovic to trudge forlornly to the net to withdraw from the match.
