The ninth day of Wimbledon saw players like Novak Djokovic and Ons Jabeur taking the centre stage. It marked the first day of the quarterfinal with one more day to go. There were no shocking results or upsets but there were some nail-biting matches.
First up, Novak Djokovic faced 20-year-old Jannik Sinner. People expected a good fight but little did they know that Sinner would win the first two sets. He was threatening to make the biggest upset but Djokovic took control just in time.
After the second set loss, the Serbian recouped himself and completely crushed Sinner in the next three sets. The score was 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. With this victory, Djokovic made his way into the semifinal.
