Tennis super star Novak Djokovic once again proved why he is drubbed as the greatest of all time as he came from two sets down to beat Jannik Sinner in a five-set epic battle in the Wimbledon quarter-final. The Serbian fought valiantly to beat the Italian 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in three hours and thirty-five minutes. 

Following the victory, Djokovic said it was the toilet break when he was two sets down that changed everything for him.

“Maybe it’s the experience, maybe it’s the toilet break, maybe everything combined. I am just happy as I am through to the semi-final,” Djokovic said when asked about his ability to come back from the difficult situation.

“As for the first two sets, compared to the last three, we had probably two different matches. Sinner was the better player in the first two sets. I went out, had a little bit of refreshment, a toilet break and a little pep talk to myself in the mirror, trying to it’s actually the truth (laughs),” he said.

“Sometimes, these things are necessary. A little break and a little pep talk and trying to recuperate and trying to regather the thoughts really help,” he added.
