Novak Djokovic is only one win away from reaching world no.1!

Should Nole advance to the Championships final on Sunday he will become the new world no.1. He can earn the no.1 ranking also if the top-seeded Spaniard Rafael Nadal fails to defend the title. The Serbian improved his match record for the season to an impressive 46-1 mark.

Second-seeded Novak will face no.12 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in his first Wimbledon finals. The 26-year-old Frenchman upset six-time champion, world no.3 Roger Federer in five sets, 3-6, 6-7(3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4, and became the first player ever to overturn a two-set deficit and beat the Swiss in a Grand Slam match. Djokovic and Tsonga have met seven times, the Le Mans native leads 5-2. Their last encounter was in quarter-finals of Australian Open 2010, the Frenchman prevailed in five sets.

The Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic needed 4 sets to get past world no.158 Australian sensation and his regular practice partner Bernard Tomic on Wednesday at Wimbledon, winning their quarter-final clash 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 in 2 hours and 41 minutes. “I’m delighted to be through, it’s a great result,” said Nole after the match. “In the first set I played well but one bad service game in the second let him in and then he was the better player. I had some very difficult service games but I managed to hold on and win the match. He’s such an unpredictable player – very young and hitting a lot of winners. He did not make a lot of errors from the baseline and that made my life very difficult. I tried to change the pace but he was better at that, so it was cat and mouse. I’m just pleased to get through.” This is Novak’s fifth straight Grand Slam semi-final. Djokovic has twice reached the semifinals at the All England Club, in 2007 and 2010.
