Highlights: Novak Djokovic tops Juan Martin del Potro in Wimbledon semis

Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro could have filled multiple highlight reels from their record four-hour, 43-minute match in the Wimbledon semifinals on Friday. Here is one compilation from Djokovic's 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (6), 6-3 victory, via ESPN.

According to ESPN, the two played 64 rallies of more than nine shots. Djokovic reached his second Wimbledon final behind 80 winners (including 22 aces) and a solid fifth set after being unable to convert two match points in the fourth-set tiebreaker. Del Potro was credited with 48 winners, many of them spectacular forehand strikes.

"It was a very high level of tennis. I expected it,'' Djokovic told the BBC. "I was ready to play five sets and I stayed tough until the end.''
