Thanks to Marton Fucsovics, Hungarian men’s tennis is back in the salons. The 29-year-old from Nyregyhazy reached the 1/4 Wimbledon final and became the first singles player from Hungary since 1981 at this point in a Grand Slam tournament. However, he did not take the next step, because in the quarter-finals he lost 3: 6, 4: 6, 4: 6 to the defending title and five-time winner of the championships, Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic had a clear advantage at the start of the match. The Serbian took advantage of the fact that Vosovic, who does not represent playing on large courts such as everyday life, was nervous and immediately advanced with a 5-0 score. The ATP leader in the ranking may have won the game 6:1, but ultimately won 6:3.
In the following parts, the match became equal. Mostly because of Djokovic’s weaker position. Belgrade made many atypical mistakes, was also often passive in exchanges and allowed himself to get caught up in a deep defense.
But for twelve minutes or so, the Serb climbed to the highest level and thus decided the fate of the match. At 4:4 in the second set, after Vosovic hit a forehand, Djokovic took a break and ended the match. In turn, in the third installment, already in the opening match, he received a pass from his opponent after a deep one. He did not lose this advantage and left the field as the winner.
Thanks to this, on Wednesday Djokovic was able to enjoy a double jubilee – he won the 100th match on grass on the main course of his career and advanced to the tenth semi-finals at Wimbledon. Overall, this was the Grand Slam semi-finals for him, which cemented him to second place at all times, behind Roger Federer (46).
Within 2 hours and 17 minutes of play, Djokovic sent four aces, broke one once, used four of his 14 break points, served 23 finish points, made 30 unforced errors and scored 108 points in total, more than his opponent By 22 points. On the other hand, Fucsovics had five aces, 24 aces and 31 special fouls.
In Friday’s final, he will face top-ranked Serbian Karen Khachanov or Denis Shapovalov.
