Djokovic: 12 Stats You Need To Know
Novak Djokovic is at the peak of his abilities this fortnight. The top seed and defending champion is through to his ninth Wimbledon semi-final, but this is just the second time he's reached the last four at The Championships by dropping only one set.
Ahead of his clash on Friday with No. 23 seed Roberto Bautista Agut, ATPTour.com looks at 12 of the most important stats you need to know about the World No. 1.
- Djokovic is trying to win his fourth Grand Slam in the five most recent majors. He has 15 Grand Slam titles, trailing Rafael Nadal (18) and Roger Federer (20).
- He is seeking his 6th Wimbledon final, which would equal Boris Becker, Jimmy Connors and Rod Laver in fifth place on the all-time list for most men’s singles finals reached at The All England Club.
- A win on Friday would put Djokovic into his 25th major final, trailing only Nadal (27) and Federer (31).
- Djokovic is 5-3 in Wimbledon semi-finals, but won his past four at this event.
- He has a 70-10 record at The Championships and has won more matches here than any other Grand Slam.
- Djokovic is 24-11 in Grand Slam semi-finals, but prevailed in 11 of his past 12. His only blip was last month’s loss to Dominic Thiem at Roland Garros.
- The World No. 1 is making his 15th consecutive appearance at Wimbledon. He has reached at least the semi-finals here in nine of his past 10 visits.
- Djokovic has hit 168 winners to 107 unforced errors so far this fortnight. He’s hit more winners than errors in all five of his matches.
- He’s been aggressive on returns throughout the tournament, racking up 63 break points and converting on 29 (46%). He leads the tournament in return games won (29 of 72, 40%).
- The Serbian has been efficient in conserving energy, spending only 10 hours and five minutes on court to reach the semi-finals.
- He has held serve in 69 of 74 games (93%) this fortnight, saving 14 of 19 break points. Djokovic has only been broken once in his past three matches.
- He leads his FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry with Bautista Agut 7-3, but lost their two most recent matches this year in Doha and Miami.
