    Djokovic Into Wimbledon Semi-Finals Due To De Minaur Injury


    Djokovic has advanced to the Wimbledon semi-finals due to an unfortunate injury sustained by De Minaur.

    Novak Djokovic, a seven-time champion, successfully advanced to the Wimbledon semi-finals on Wednesday due to Mr. Alex de Minaur’s withdrawal from their quarterfinal match due to a hip injury.

    Australian ninth seed De Minaur suffered the injury in his fourth-round win over Arthur Fils and admitted Wednesday: “I am devastated to pull out due to a hip injury”.

    “It’s no secret that this would have been the biggest match of my career but it’s a unique injury,” said the 25-year-old.

    “I woke up this morning wanting to feel some sort of miracle, but there was a high risk of making the injury worse if I stepped on court.

    “One stretch, one slide could take this from a three to six weeks’ injury to four months out.”

    Djokovic will be playing in his 13th Wimbledon semi-final and 49th at the Grand Slams.

    The upcoming championship match on Sunday will feature either Taylor Fritz, representing the United States, or Lorenzo Musetti from Italy as the opponent.
