Novak Djokovic To Play Matteo Berrettini in Wimbledon Final

After two weeks of high-level tennis, the Wimbledon tournament finally knows its finalists. On Friday, Novak Djokovic claimed a hard-fought victory over fearless Denis Shapovalov in the semi-finals, while Matteo Berrettini saw off Hubert Hurkacz.

The two players will meet on Centre Court at the All England Club on Sunday to decide who will win the world’s oldest Grand Slam.

Djokovic did not have it easy against Shapovalov, however, the Serb’s strong mentality at key moments and the Canadian’s constant errors were enough for the world number one to take a straight sets victory 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 7-5.

Nole is now one step away from winning his sixth Wimbledon trophy (third in a row).

He is also aware that a victory would allow him to equal the men’s record of 20 Grand Slam titles held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Berrettini, meanwhile, made good use of his serve and forehand to subdue Hurkacz 6-3 6-0 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 and qualify for his first Grand Slam final.

In doing so, he became the first Italian player to advance to a men’s singles final and the first Italian to play in a major final since 1976. The 25-year-old is hungry for glory.

On Saturday, Australia’s Ashleigh Barty and Czech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova will contest the women’s final.
