Wimbledon: Djokovic sends message ahead of final against Kyrgios


When Novak Djokovic plays Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon Final on Sunday, he will be attempting to win his 21st Grand Slam singles title, which would put him one ahead of Federer and one behind Nadal in the race to be named the greatest of all time.

Recall that Djokovic beat Cameron Norrie of Britain 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 on Friday to advance to the final, while Nick Kyrgios defeated Rafael Nadal by walking over him to deny him the chance to repeat his illustrious victory from 2014.

In addition to making jaw-dropping shots, Kyrgios has also been known for his outbursts, which have included a demand that Stefanos Tsitsipas, his opponent from the third round, be disqualified from the tournament for hitting the ball into the spectators.

The Serb, who is 0-2 against Kyrgios, promised “fireworks” as he pursues a 21st Grand Slam singles title on Sunday, which would put him one ahead of Federer and two behind Nadal in the race for the title of greatest of all time.

The 35-year-old remarked that “the job is not finished.” There will definitely be a lot of emotional fireworks coming from both parties, that much is certain.

He added, “He’s playing so freely. “He has a serve that is among the largest in the sport. We haven’t played in a while.

“I’ve never won a set off him. Hopefully it can be different this time. It’s another final for me at Wimbledon so hopefully the experience can work in my favour.”
