Plant-powered tennis player Novak Djokovic secured a place in the Wimbledon 2018 finals after a victory against old rival Rafael Nadal, The Telegraph reports. The Serbian tennis player will now proceed to a final bout against South African tennis player Kevin Anderson.
In what was described as a “sensationally high-quality match,” Djokovic edged past Nadal after an intense five-hour, 14-minute match that took place over a two-day period due to Wimbledon curfews. Both athletes impressed officials and the crowd by hitting 73 winners and making 42 unforced errors.
Djokovic was overcome with emotion following his victory: “It’s hard to pick the words [for how this feels]. I’m just going through things, having flashbacks of the last 15 months, everything I’ve been through to get here, to get to the finals and beat the best player in the world in one of the longest matches I’ve ever played.”
