Novak Djokovic set up a Wimbledon semi-final showdown against Roberto Bautista Agut after defeating David Goffin in straight sets. The 32-year-old defending champion looked like facing a difficult afternoon on Centre Court when he went a break down against the Belgian in the first set of the contest.
However, Djokovic responded immediately and went on to pick up the first set, before going on to wrap up a comfortable-looking 6-4 6-0 6-2 win. The Serbian world number one, who is chasing a fifth title at the All England Club to take his career Grand Slam tally to 16, told BBC Sport: “He started well.
He was dictating the play from the baseline. “Things could have gone a different way – who knows what the match would have looked like if I had lost the first set – but I was very pleased with the second and third.” Djokovic will now face Spaniard Agut in the last-four after he needed four sets to get past Guido Pella, 7-5 6-4 3-6 6-3.
