Dubai: Djokovic in the quarters. Acapulco: wins for Nadal

In the replay of the quarter-final dated twenty-twenty, and also of the final in Paris Bercy in 2018 - Novak Djokovic makes no particular changes to the script after the clear victory against Lorenzo Musetti at the debut, at the ATP 500 in Dubai.

Even if he hesitates, understandably, one step away from the finish line with the joke available. A completely circumstantial first set for the Serbian champion, five times champion of the tournament, in control of the matter thanks to a break that harpoons in the fourth game.

Djokovic does not take advantage of a 4-2 advantage in the second, however, and does not even take advantage of two chances to reach 5-4 with the available serve. The short ball, a solution that in two cases leads to the breaking point for the 4-2, proves, as usual, to be a more than reliable weapon in times of difficulty.

He finishes 6-3 7-6 (2). Jiri Vesely awaits the world number one in the quarter-finals. Fresh from the sieve of qualifications, the Czech tennis player notes Roberto Bautista Agut in the notebook of the victims after Marin Cilic in the first round.

Andrey Rublev's problems against Kwon last a set. Called to make up a 3-6 disadvantage, the Russian leaves just three games on the road between the second and third set. At the ATP 500 in Acapulco, Rafael Nadal reached in the quarter-finals of the Mexican tournament, after winning 6-0 6-3 against Stefan Kozlov.

Stefanos Tsitsipas beat American qualifier Jeffrey John Wolf 6-1 6-0 in just 49 minutes. while the Majorcan stayed on the pitch a little longer to get the better of it 6-0 6-3. Cameron Norrie won against John Isner 6-7 (2) 6-3 6-4.
