Novak Djokovic’s next match at Wimbledon 2017

QF: TOMAS BERDYCH bt. NOVAK DJOKOVIC 7-6(2), 2-0 (RET.)

For the first time in eight years, Novak Djokovic retired at a Grand Slam as the world no. 4 pulled the plug trailing Tomas Berdych 6-7(2), 0-2 in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2017.

Djokovic has received medical treatment for a right arm or shoulder injury during his match against Adrian Mannarino on the previous day, and had hit out at schedulers for failing to move his match to the available Centre Court on its scheduled day, instead holding over his fourth-round clash until Tuesday. His venom was partly explained when he took the court against Berdych, a former Wimbledon finalist, on Wednesday. Djokovic was clearly unable to serve at his usual pace, although he made up for him with a high degree of accuracy, and shook out his right arm once or twice before the match. Taken to a tie break by Berdych - against whom Djokovic was 25-2 coming into the match - he lost it 2-7, then took a medical timeout. After two games played in the second set, Djokovic retired.

Djokovic clarified that the injury was to his right elbow and that he has been suffering from it for 18 months, although it has not previously been as painful.

He did not rule out surgery or an extended break from the game. 

'The specialists that I’ve talked with, they haven’t been really too clear, mentioning surgery, mentioning different options,' Djokovic said. 

'Nobody was very clear in what needs to be done. As long as it kind of comes and goes, it’s fine. But adding up, maybe it worked for seven, eight, 10 months, but now the [last] seven months is not working that great. Obviously it’s adding up more and more. The more I play, the worse it gets. I guess the break is something that I will have to consider right now.'


16: NOVAK DJOKOVIC bt. ADRIAN MANNARINO 6-2, 7-6(5), 6-4

Djokovic and Mannarino were initially scheduled to play on Monday along with the rest of the fourth-round matches, but the two were unable to get on to No. 1 Court after Rafael Nadal's almost five-hour match against Gilles Muller and had their match moved to Centre Court on Tuesday ahead of ladies' quarterfinal day.

Things didn't go very smoothly for Djokovic when he did take the court. He raced to a 3-0 lead against the unfancied Mannarino, but summoned the doctor for some medicine, possibly for a headache, and later in the match required treatment twice on his right shoulder, refusing to say afterwards how serious the problem was. D

Djokovic was also furious about the state of the courts, saying on the BBC afterwards that there were holes in the middle of the baseline and at the service line.

Nevertheless, Djokovic beat Mannarino in straight sets to reach the quarterfinals without dropping a set and set up a clash on Wednesday with Tomas Berdych.


R3: NOVAK DJOKOVIC bt. ERNESTS GULBIS 6-4 6-1 7-6

Novak Djokovic advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon 2017 with a 6-4 6-1 7-6 victory over enigmatic Latvian, Ernests Gulbis. Fresh from a superb victory over Juan Martin del Potro, Gulbis made a confident start, jumping to a 3-1 lead, but the unpredictable Latvian soon faded away as Djokovic found his range. From being 2-4 down, Djokovic won nine games in a row to take the match away from the 28-year-old Latvian.

Gulbis regrouped at the start of the third set, staying with Djokovic until the tie break, but the second seed pulled away again, confirming the win after two hours and 16 minutes.

“I’m delighted with what I achieved today,” Djokovic said. “I raised the level of tennis. Comparing to the first couple of matches and the last couple of weeks, I think this was the most focused I was on the court and obviously at the right time because Gulbis, he is a great challenge.

Djokovic has had his struggles in the past year, but the Serbian has made serene progress at Wimbledon so far. There will be tougher tests ahead, but it's been so far, so good for the 12-time major winner.
Djokovic will play Frenchman, Adrian Mannarino in the Round of 16.


R2: NOVAK DJOKOVIC bt. ADAM PAVLASEK 6-2 6-2 6-1

Novak Djokovic eased into the third round at Wimbledon with a comprehensive 6-2 6-2 6-1 victory over young Czech, Adam Pavlasek. The world number four was hardly troubled by Pavlasek, dismissing the 136th-ranked Czech in an hour and 43 minutes. Djokovic broke twice each in the first and second sets, and three times in the third set in a dominant performance against the 22-year-old Czech.

The Serbian posted strong serving numbers, serving at 68%, converting 80% of his first serve points, and a very impressive 74% of his second serves. He faced, and saved just one break point through out the contest.

“I managed to impose my own rhythm and play the game I intended to play,” Djokovic said. “I feel better as days go by in Wimbledon. I have been in this position before so I will try to use that experience, knowing what to do on a daily basis and to get myself in the right shape, the right state of mind and hopefully the right performance. From my side, it was all working well.”

Djokovic will take on resurgent Latvian, Ernests Gulbis in the third round, looking to avoid the fate he suffered at the same stage last season, when he was upset by Sam Querrey.


R1: NOVAK DJOKOVIC bt. MARTIN KLIZAN 6-3 2-0 Ret.

Novak Djokovic booked his place in the second round of Wimbledon 2017 after Slovakian left-hander, Martin Klizan retired hurt early in the second set of their opening round meeting on Tuesday. Klizan had been struggling with the problem for some time now, and had to retire from his only warm up event on grass in Antalya last week. The 27-year-old appeared on court with his leg heavily strapped, but soldiered on nonetheless, and stayed with Djokovic in the opening half of the set.

However, the world number four and three-time champion carved out his first break points of the match in the eighth game of the set. converting at the third opportunity to open up a 5-3 lead before closing out the set in the next game, after which Klizan demanded medical attention. The Slovakian lasted just two more games before throwing in the towel.

“You never like to end up a match this way but I knew that Klizan had issues even before walking on the court,” Djokovic said after the match. “I tried to just focus on what I need to do, execute my game plan. I started serving well, played well on my service games, not so great on my returns but it didn’t matter – I made a break. But you could see that he wasn’t moving: once the ball was a couple of feet away from him, he let it go. Just unfortunate. I’m sure he didn’t want to finish this way because it’s Wimbledon, it’s a very particular tournament for all of us. I wish him all the best.”

While Djokovic might have preferred to have spent a bit more time on court, the 40-minute work-out may not be bad after all, given that it was only a few days ago that he was winning the Eastbourne title after opting to play a pre-Wimbledon warm-up event for the first time in seven years. That was one of the many moves he has made in an attempt to snap his year-long struggles; the other significant ones being splitting with his long-time team, and bringing on former pros, Andre Agassi- an eight-time Grand Slam champion no less, and former Wimbledon semi-finalist, Mario Ancic.

Next up for Djokovic is a second round meeting with Adam Pavlasek, before a possible third round clash with Juan Martin del Potro.

Pre:Wimbledon: Djokovic's season so far


Novak Djokovic has played some underwhelming matches this season, but his current form slump can be traced to this time 12 months ago, when the Serbian suffered a shock third round loss at Wimbledon to Sam Querrey. Fresh from completing the career grand slam and becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four major singles prizes simultaneously, Djokovic arrived at the All England Club with more history in his sights.

However Djokovic, who has since admitted to struggling with his motivation at times over the last year, looked a shadow of his former self as he succumbed to the big-serving Querrey in four sets. Djokovic has only won two titles since and has relinquished all of his four slams, losing in the US Open final to Stan Wawrinka, falling in the second round of the Australian Open to Denis Istomin, while he went down to Dominic Thiem in the French Open quarter-finals earlier this month.

Djokovic is a measly 24-7 for the season this year, starting the year promisingly with a win over Andy Murray to collect the Doha title, but ever since it’s been slim pickings, with the Serbian losing early at the Australian Open, Acapulco and Indian Wells, while an elbow injury forced him out of Miami. Djokovic returned to action at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, losing to David Goffin in the quarter-finals, while he was the victim of crushing losses against Rafael Nadal in the Madrid semi-finals and Alexander Zverev in the Rome final.

A champion at Wimbledon in 2011, 2014 and 2015, Djokovic has altered his traditional preparations for The Championships and accepted a late wildcard into Eastbourne, which takes place the week prior to Wimbledon.

Can Djokovic return to his scintillating best at SW19 or will his worrying form slump spiral to new depths? Keep track of Djokovic’s progress at the All England Club below!
