De Minaur withdraws from Wimbledon, Djokovic advances to semi-finals

  • Posted: Jul 10, 2024

Alex de Minaur has withdrawn from Wimbledon prior to his quarter-final clash against Novak Djokovic due to injury.

The ninth-seeded Australian announced he was unable to compete against the seven-time champion Djokovic at a press conference. He had spoken of jarring his hip in the closing stages of his fourth-round victory against Arthur Fils, and he was unable to recover in time to take on the second-seeded Djokovic on Centre Court on Wednesday.


Djokovic, the No. 2 in the PIF ATP Rankings, advances to a semi-final clash against 13th seed Taylor Fritz or 25th seed Lorenzo Musetti at the grass-court major, where he is bidding to equal Roger Federer’s record of eight men’s singles title.

By reaching the last four this year, the 37-year-old Serbian has equalled Federer’s record of 13 appearances in the Wimbledon men’s singles semi-finals.
