Djokovic hopes Eastbourne win can inspire Wimbledon success

In an all-French semifinal, Gael Monfils overcame Richard Gasquet and a few tumbles to the turf, 6-2, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (4) to set up an Eastbourne final against Novak Djokovic.

"He played semis of Wimbledon, beat (Roger) Federer, when he was, I think, only a teenager".

Djokovic won the Qatar Open in January in his first event of 2017 but his only other final since was in Rome, where he lost to Alexander Zverev in straight sets in May.

The former world number one is rebuilding for Wimbledon after a poor past year by his world-class standards and is pointing toward the grass-court major as an immediate goal. "Coming to Eastbourne I obviously haven't had as much success as in previous seasons during the first six months". I had a lot of time spent on the court, some good match play.

Djokovic, a three-time Wimbledon victor, will play Slovakia's Martin Klizan in the first round next week.

"Now I'm really glad to spend time with him, and Agassi as well, in London". I was also in final. I mean, he can beat anyone, especially with that serve.

The Serb then broke Medvedev's serve in the next game before serving out for the set, and immediately broke again in the opening game of the second set. I thought both of us played very well.

"In order to, in a way, reach the next peak, you need to have a little drop, because, you know, that's how life kind of circulates around, as waves going up and down".
