Defending champion Novak Djokovic is cruising ahead with confidence as he is just two steps away from retaining one of the prestigious Grand Slam titles i.e. Wimbledon 2022. Djokovic, who had a controversial start to the season after missing out on the Australian Open 2022 due to his stance against vaccination, has displayed great courage and tremendous commitment toward his mission to add the 21st Grand Slam title to his tally.

While Djokovic pulled off a stunning 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory in the quarterfinal against his Italian opponent Jannik Sinner at the Center Court on Tuesday, he also won many hearts with his heartwarming gesture towards his opponent. It all happened on Tuesday when the match was getting intense in the fourth set and Djokovic hit a powerful forehanded to the right corner which forced Sinner to scramble.

While Sinner made the return, defending champion made the drop shot. Sinner tried to run towards the net to play a return shot, but he fell down. Sinner appeared in immense pain and the referee immediately reached out to him to check if he was okay, Djokovic too crossed over the nets to check on his opponent. The gesture received wide applause from many on social media after a video of the same was posted by Wimbledon’s official Twitter handle.

Here is the post shared by Wimbledon:

After the match, Djokovic admitted that he took a toilet break after trailing behind in the first two sets and when he came back on the grass-court for the third set he was much more determined and focused. “As for the first two sets, I think in comparison to the last three we probably had two different matches. He was better in the first two sets. I went out, had a little bit of refreshment, a toilet break and a little pep talk in the mirror. The toilet break was the turning point,” Djokovic jokingly said.
