Novak Djokovic has received a walkover to the Wimbledon semi-finals after Alex de Minaur pulled out of Wednesday’s showdown due to injury.

Djokovic was set for an incredibly awkward return to Centre Court after publicly slamming the British crowd in an angry on-court interview on Monday.

De Minaur, though, has been forced to pull out of his scheduled quarter-final against the 24-time Grand Slam champion after hurting himself in his last match.

It means that Djokovic will next face either 13th-seed Taylor Fritz or Lorenzo Musetti as he looks to continue his quest for an eighth Wimbledon trophy.
