Novak Djokovic v Richard Gasquet Live
Top seed and the defending champion Novak Djokovic will take on a familiar opponent - the 21st seed Richard Gasquet, in the semifinal of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships, on Friday afternoon.
Gasquet just delivered the biggest upset of the tournament in the quarterfinal, when he took out the fourth seeded Swiss Stan Wawrinka with 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 11-9. As for the Serbian, he had an easy match when he moved past the ninth seeded Croatian Marin Cilic with 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.
The Frenchman, who defeated Nick Kyrgios and Grigor Dimitrov earlier in the tournament, has had a decent year, having won two singles titles. He currently has a track record of 21-8, and hasn’t been in the semifinal at Wimbledon since 2007.
On the other hand, Djokovic is still going strong and shows no sign of stopping. After fumbling in the fourth round against Kevin Anderson, he has certainly recuperated well and is on the track to win the second Grand Slam of the season.
The world no. 1 has defeated Gasquet 11 times in the past, with his most recent win coming in the fourth round of Roland Garros earlier this year, with 6-1, 6-2, 6-3.
For this match, Djokovic is certainly the favorite one. He should be able to reach the final without any difficulties.
