At first, Grigor Dimitrov was simply hopeful he’d reach the second week of Wimbledon. “I would like to get into the second week – and why not go even further? I’m trying to embrace the moments here and have flashbacks to four years ago. Grass is a special place and it is great you can enjoy a couple of weeks per year on it," as was reported by Wimbledon.com.
He’s not only in the second week, he’s deep into the week and one match away from a berth in Sunday’s final. But he still has one more match to win before that against last year’s runner-up, Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic overcame a five-set test against Marin Cilic by regrouping after losing Sets 3 and 4. Djokovic remained steady and confident—not to mention upright—despite spending a good chunk of this match skidding and slipping on the grass.
Now that the semifinals are locked up, let’s take a look at how these two match up.
