Wimbledon 2022: Novak Djokovic in the second week
by | VIEW 251
Novak Djokovic, after an unconvincing performance with Kwon, capable of forcing the issue in the fourth set, the Serbian champion overwhelms both Thanasi Kokkinakis and Miomir Kecmanovic at Wimbledon 2022. With a 33-4 tally to protect against Serbian, the six-time tournament champion plays an occasionally perfect match.
It serves well, moves well, makes very few mistakes and above all forces the opponent to rarely hit the ball cleanly. It is also useless to mention that Kecmanovic during the first two sets does not offer break points only in one case.
In short: the 6-0 6-3 that he matures after just over sixty minutes of play exemplifies everything. The dynamics obviously do not change in the third set, with Nole maintaining incredibly high standards in response and Kecmanovic struggling to find valid alternatives, to stick to the score or at least to make life difficult for his compatriot.
Djokovic, who lands the decisive shoulder at the start and flirts several times with the second break, does not make any particular changes to the script and obviously seals the success at 6-0 6-3 6-4. The surprising Tim van Rijthoven awaits him in the round of 16.
Very fresh champion of the 250 of s-Hertogenbosch, returning above all from the successes to the detriment of Delbonis and substantially at eight consecutive successes on the lawns.
The other results: Tiafoe ok
In the segment of the draw of surprises, Frances Tiafoe continues to win: the Kazakh Alexandr Bublik is beaten in four sets, in a sometimes crazy match.
Tommy Paul and Jack Sock also continue to win. Not even the tale of Jason Kubler finds a conclusion, fresh from the sieve of qualifications, who gets rid of Dennis Novak without particular difficulty and who will compete for a place in the quarter-finals in Wimbleon with Sock.
In a rather poor day in the women's field, Jelana Ostapenko's problems last a set, who after the initial 6-3 against Irina Begu leaves just two games on the road between the second and the third. A former champion of the tournament falls, Angelique Kerber, beaten in two sets by Elise Mertens. In the list of surprises the misstep of Maria Sakkari, who leaves Tatjana Maria way.
