The Serbian tennis player is going for his eighth final in the third Grand Slam tournament of the year. Novak Djokovic will face Australian Nick Kyrgios in the final of Wimbledon 2022, after he defeated Britain's Cameron Norrie 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 on Friday, coming back from a start to the match full of mistakes. After finishing the match, Nole had a curious celebration that he ended up explaining in statements to the press.

Djokovic beat Norrie in the semifinal of the tournament and, as soon as he won, the Serbian began to send a series of kisses to the stands, the same ones that generated more than one controversy.

However, Nole took care to dispel all doubts. “The kisses were for someone who was cheering me on the whole match”, said the tennis player who won his 27th consecutive win at Wimbledon.

Djokovic will face Nick Kyrgios on Sunday. He will go in search of his fourth Wimbledon title in a row and seventh overall.

Norrie was playing his first semifinal of a major tournament and surprisingly broke Djokovic three times in the first set. But from then on he didn't have a single break point on serve. Starting in the second set, Djokovic improved his game while Norrie seemed increasingly vulnerable and prone to mistakes.

With board 3 -3 in the second set, the Serbian took control of the match, winning 11 of the next 13 games and breaking the resistance of his rival, who was no longer the same as he was from the beginning.

”This is not over”, said the Serb at the end of the match. He then predicted a “very emotional, lots of fireworks” match on Sunday.
