Novik Djokovic leaped into action to help up Jannik Sinner after the Italian suffered a nasty fall during their thrilling Wimbledon quarterfinal match on Tuesday. A two-set lead for the No. 10 seed appeared to be all he needed to pull off a major upset in the tournament.
When it came time for Djokovic to get back in the match, though, he held his cool, as he had done numerous times before in Grand Slam matches, and always prevailed. Within minutes Djokovic had won the third and fourth sets, and a deciding set seemed certain.
Down two sets, Novak Djokovic was as high as +200 on the live line.

While both players were engaged in dramatic rallies in the fourth, Sinner was doing everything he could to prevent the chance of a tie-breaker. At 2-5, Djokovic hit a whirling drop shot in the middle of the court, giving the Italian a chance to break.
As Djokovic saved the breakpoint, Sinner sprinted to try to get the ball back over the net. Additionally, as he attempted to put his feet down, the 20-year-old fell and broke his ankle.
After falling to the ground, Sinner appeared to be in serious pain as he held onto his leg. A medic was dispatched to the tennis star’s aid after the fans expressed alarm at his condition.
Djokovic also voiced anxiety as he climbed over the net to help his opponent. After initially fearing the worst, Djokovic was able to get Sinner back up on his feet swiftly and efficiently.
Then Sinner returned to his side of the court with a shaky step, and it appeared as if he had refused medical attention. Djokovic was able to hold serve and win the set in the next round of play.

Wimbledon has been Djokovic’s Achilles’ heel nine times, as IBM’s records show him to have done. In addition, Djokovic had only won twice prior to the encounter against Sinner.
First, he beat Guillermo Garcia Lopez in the second round of the 2005 tournament. Once again in 2015, Djokovic beat Kevin Anderson in the round of 16 at the Australian Open. To win the French Open last year, Djokovic had to come back from two sets down on two separate occasions.
