‘I live this sport with my mind, body and soul’ – insists dominant Djokovic
Novak Djokovic reached a 10th Wimbledon semi-final, moving a step closer to winning a record-tying 20th Grand Slam title.
The world No. 1 dispatched unseeded Hungarian Marton Fucsovics in 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 at The All England Club.
Djokovic has dropped just one set en route to the semi-finals, being the opening set of his first round match against teenage wildcard Jack Draper.
The 34-year-old dominated the match from an early stage, winning in a little over two hours. Defending champion Djokovic was delighted with his performance.

“It was a solid performance, I started extremely well and closed out the opening set 6-3. In the next two sets one break of serve was enough. Credit to Marton for fighting, he had a great tournament,”
“I have to win my semi-final. The two quarter-finalists are great, quality players. Shapovalov made some big wins, Khachanov is looking great and we are all looking great. Djokovic said.
The Serb is still on course to win the ‘Golden Slam’ after winning the Australian Open and French Open earlier this year.
“I’m aware of certain stats. I live this sport with my heart, body and soul, I have been devoted since I was four-years-old. I try to live in the moment, take nothing for granted, I’m going for history and lets keep it going.
