Novak Djokovic had a break point to go up 5-1 in the first set against Jannik Sinner and roll to the semifinals, but things went south quickly and Djokovic found himself down two sets quickly. The six time Wimbledon champion recovered and won in five sets, overcoming his trickiest test this fortnight. Now, he is onto the semis to face native Cameron Norrie, a top 10 foe.
This is Norrie's first career semifinals, and is a significant underdog to Djokovic. Let's check out the odds and find the best bet from WynnBET Sportsbook:

Cameron Norrie vs. Novak Djokovic Prediction and Pick
While the Serbian was challenged by Sinner, I rate that opponent higher than Norrie, who has less upside and also struggled in the quarterfinals against an aged David Goffin. Norrie had to respond from down a set and a break to win in five sets, and he doesn't have the discipline to win long rallies with Djokovic.
Norrie doesn't have the return ability of someone like Sinner, and Djokovic showed how difficult it is to hold him off after five sets. In his first Grand Slam semis, there's little hope for him to hold serve and drag these sets out.
I'm going to ride the momentum of Djokovic, who is a massive favorite, to make quick work of the English challenger. Norrie struggled with his serve against Goffin often in the quarters, facing 10 break points and winning 47% of his second serve points. That's not going to work agianst Djokovic. This can get ugly.
LEAN: Djokovic -7.5 (-105)
