He has dropped only one set on his way into a semi-final showdown against 23rd seed Roberto Bautista Agut, but the Serbian has been pushed aside.
Tennis fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the 40th clash between legend’s Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
The match will take place directly after Djokovic and Agut, but it’s anticipation has pushed the most dominant recent player to second billing.
The top seed and world number one reached the semi-finals for the ninth time, racking up his 70th career win at the All England Club by sweeping past David Goffin in straight sets, reeling off 15 of the last 17 games.
In his 36th Grand Slam semi-final, he’ll go up against Agut who is in his maiden last-four at the majors at the 27th attempt.
Djokovic leads the 31-year-old 7-3 in career meetings, including 3-0 at the majors.
However, the unheralded Spaniard, who had to cancel plans for his stag party in Ibiza as a consequence of his run to the semi-finals, has defeated Djokovic twice in 2019, in Doha and Miami.
“He’s got amazing consistency,” said Djokovic.
“The ball bounces lower on the grass, which is I think more suitable to his style of game.”
Should Djokovic win, it would be the 22nd occasion that a Grand Slam final has been contested by two of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal.
This year’s final four have also set the record for the oldest combined age of Grand Slam men’s singles semi-finalists in the Open era.
They have a combined age of 134 years 160 days — 23 days older than the previous record, which was set at Roland Garros in1968, when Pancho Gonzales, Ken Rosewall, Andres Gimeno and Rod Laver had a combined age of 134 years 137 days.
