I would be happy to see them lifting the trophy.' In March, he had posted a photo with Croatian football stars Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, writing on Instagram: 'Happy to meet nice guys and great players from Croatian National team.'

But the 12th seed was not to be denied as he raced into the last four, hitting an impressive 40 winners on the way.
It will be Djokovic's first semifinal Wimbledon appearance since 2015.
