Tennis: Sinner falls short against Djokovic

Italian loses after winning first two sets, long besting Serb great

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 5 - Italy's Jannik Sinner fell short of beating Serb legend Novak Djokovic in their Wimbledon quarter-final Tuesday.
    The 20-year-old 10th seed from Alto Adige won the first two sets and long looked the better player against the 20-time Grand Slam winner.
    No 1 seed and world number one Djokovic, 35, fought back to win the last three sets.
    The game went 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in three and a half hours.
    Sinner survived an injury scare in the fourth set after slipping and turning his ankle. (ANSA).
