Novak Djokovic stayed on track to regain his place on the Wimbledon throne after a pep talk in the toilet.

The defending champion’s bid for a fourth title in a row went crazy when Italian youngster Jannik Sinner won the first two sets.

But for the seventh time in his career, 20-time grand slam winner Djokovic reversed a two-set deficit to win 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-2.

Djokovic said: “He was the better player for the first two sets, but I had a toilet break and a pep talk in the mirror – it’s true – sometimes these things are needed. The toilet break was the turning point.

“There was no aggression there. It was just a pep talk, a positive conversation. How negative and depressed you feel about yourself in those moments, it really affects you.

“So I did. I did that after losing two sets in the Roland Garros final, and today I did it. It doesn’t always work. It is not a guarantee that it will always work.

“But I just felt like I had to change something. I didn’t play well, I didn’t feel good on the pitch, I was dominated by Sinner.

“Luckily, grand slams are played in the best-of-five, so I had the chance to come back.”
