Novak Djokovic reached the final at Wimbledon on Friday. The defending champion settled on the London grass with Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut.
The number one in the world only had trouble with Bautista Agut in set two and decided the game after more than 2 hours and 45 minutes of play: 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-2.
The 32-year-old Djokovic goes on Sunday for his fifth final victory on the 'holy grass' of Wimbledon. The Serbian won the tournament in 2011, 2014 and 2015 as well as last year.
In the final he plays against Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. The two vedettes will face each other later on Friday at the Center Court.
Djokovic only suffers second set loss
After Djokovic simply pulled the first set, he lost the initiative in the second company. Bautista Agut, who was in the semi-final of a Grand Slam for the first time, broke Djokovic in game three and no longer gave up that lead.
It was only the second time this tournament that Djokovic lost a set. Previously, Pool Hubert Hurkacz managed to steal a set for him in the third round, but he won only five games in the following two companies.
Again, Djokovic didn't let his opponent get any further than 1-1 in sets. A late break in the third set earned him that set, after which Bautista's resistance seemed broken.
The Serbian even took a double break lead in the fourth company. The Spaniard knocked out a few match points in the last game, but that was only a postponement of execution.
