Djokovic, who survived the Australian Open with a strong line break… Will I win my 10th championship?
Novak Djokovic (5th, Serbia) advanced to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, where he participated in two years. Djokovic, who won three consecutive tournaments from 2019 to 2021, continued his 25-game winning streak.
Djokovic won 3-0 (6-2 6-1 6-2) against Alice Diminore (24th, Australia) in the fourth round of the men’s singles tournament held in Melbourne, Australia on the 23rd (local time).
It was an overwhelming performance. Djokovic played a one-sided game to the extent that he did not give Diminor a single break point. It shook the opponent with elaborate shots that pierced the left and right corners, and Diminore was unable to block the offensive and suffered defeat in 2 hours and 6 minutes.
Djokovic, who was unable to participate in the 2022 tournament due to not being vaccinated against the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), continued cruising toward 10 consecutive Australian Open victories. Djokovic, who won the Australian Open 25th in a row, will meet Andrei Rublev (6th place, Russia) in the quarterfinals. In terms of opponents, Djokovic has the advantage with 2 wins and 1 loss.
With the addition of Djokovic, the Australian Open has eight players competing for the championship trophy.
