Djokovic to face Italy’s Musetti in Wimbledon semi-final


World number two, Serbian Novak Djokovic (37 years old), will face his Italian counterpart Lorenzo Muzzetti in the semi-finals of Wimbledon 2024, who defeated American Taylor Fritz in the quarter-final match on Wednesday evening, July 10.

Novak booked his place in the semi-finals after his Australian opponent Alex de Minaur withdrew due to injury, hours before their match. Minaur suffered a severe thigh injury in the previous match, during which he defeated Frenchman Arthur Fiss.

“It’s a statement I didn’t want to make, but I’m devastated,” Minor, 25, said of his injury. “I’m going to have to pull out because of the injury. What I wanted to say was that this was going to be the biggest match of my career, but the injury happened.”

“I woke up this morning feeling a bit of a miracle, but there was a big risk of it getting worse if I played,” he said. “One stretch, one slip and it could have taken three to six weeks to get worse.”
