2019 Wimbledon Quarter-finals
Of the 4 sets of quarter-finals at the Wimbledon, two of them were played by Roberto Bautista and Guido Pella, and Novak Djokovic faced David Goffin. See who and how they advanced to the semis.
Roberto Bautista vs Guido Pella
Roberto Bautista Agut did not expect himself to be in the tournament this far and had other personal plans for the second week of Wimbledon. The Spaniard has played exceptionally well this season, having won over Gojowczyk, Darcis, Khachanov, Paire, and met Pella at the quarter-final. He advanced with a 4-set win against Pella and will play against Djokovic in the semis.
Novak Djokovic vs David Goffin
On the other hand, the 2018 Wimbledon Men’s Singles title winner Novak Djokovic will mark his 9th Wimbledon appearance this season. Though Djokovic had a slow start to the match, he eventually defeated David Goffin in the quarter-final. Goffin had scored a leading 4-3 and 30-0 points on serve in the first set but lost the next 10 games and was defeated 6-4 6-0 6-2.
Djokovic vs Bautista Predictions
For the upcoming Djokovic vs Bautista semi-final match, Djokovic will be entering as favorites who has already been defeated by the Spaniard twice this season. The Serbian has appeared 8 times for the Wimbledon before but this will be Bautista’s first-ever Grand Slam semifinal.
Bautista might be a little nervous, while Djokovic will look for the slightest slip and will seal a win. This might be an efficiency-testing match for Djokovic but in order to beat him in a semi-final needs extra performance which doesn’t look much in Bautista’s locker.
If Bautista kicks-off the match just like Goffin as in the first set of the quarter-final, then there are chances that the match might take a bend towards him. It would be a close battle if he does that but to beat the world No.1 player in a Grand Slam semis is easily said than done.
Djokovic and Bautista have met each other at both clay court and hard court and an overall of 10 meetings have been recorded between the two. The upcoming semi-final match will be their 11th meeting and for the first time, the two will meet at the grass-court. Check out the table below to get the complete head-to-head match details.
