Flipkens Flips the Wimbledon Script; 1st-Time Winner Guaranteed

“It’s ridiculous!” Flipkens said. “Last year I didn’t even get into qualifying. To be a semifinalist at Wimbledon, it cannot be better. I was so calm on the court, I had nothing to lose and I just went for my shots…Kim (Clijsters) was one of the few people still believing in me last year so I have to thank her.

“It was a fantastic match,” Djokovic said. “I felt great from the start ’til the end. I had that super focus and tried to be out there every point and not allow him to come back in the match or to have any chances. I saw the stats that I won 100 percent of first serves and I served over 80 percent of serves in in the whole match. That was incredible for me. I enjoyed every moment of it, especially at the end…This kind of performance came in the right time for me.”
