Serbian’s 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win keeps him on track for 20th slamNo answer from Fucsovics to depth and consistency at net
From the very moment that all eyes and attention switched from Novak Djokovic’s historic second French Open title to the fortnight of Wimbledon to follow, it has been hard to think of a more overwhelming favourite here in recent years. Despite Djokovic arriving with no singles grass court preparation beforehand, minimal rest and a 34-year-old body that surely feels the aches and pains of quick surface transitions far more than a decade ago, little has really changed in the five matches that have followed.
Since losing the opening set of his first match of the grass season in the first round against Britain’s Jack Draper, Djokovic has not dropped a single set and only once has it been particularly close. He reached his 10th semi-final at Wimbledon on Wednesday with a performance that was not without its flaws but decisive at all the right times, beating Marton Fucsovics of Hungary 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.
