Wimbledon: No. 3 Novak Djokovic Recovers, Beats No. 14 Lleyton Hewitt In Four

Whatever treatment No. 3 Novak Djokovic received in the third set must have worked, as Djokovic seemed fully recovered by the fourth set, finishing off a somewhat surprising win over No. 14 Lleyton Hewitt, 7-5, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.

Djokovic was able to keep rallies short with aggressive play, limiting the 2002 Wimbledon champion’s ability to counterpunch as effectively as he can.

When asked after the loss if he could tell if anything was wrong with Djokovic, Hewitt said “I don’t know. He’s always got something.”
