Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic ahead in fluency
Djokovic in fluency
Easy victory for Novak Djokovic in the second round on the Wimbledon grass.
The Serbian champion fluently disposed of Australian tennis player Thanasi Kokkinakis in three sets (6-1, 6-4, 6-2). For the class of ’96, however, this is the best result achieved in his career at the London Slam.
Instead, Djokovic’s path toward what could be the seventh Wimbledon success of his career continues.
Since 2011, Novak Djokovic has won the tournament six times, which was not played in 2020 because of the pandemic. When it was not the Serb who lifted the top trophy it was Roger Federer, in 2012 and 2017, and Andy Murray, in 2013 (beating Djokovic himself in the final, by the way), and 2016. Nadal, who is still in the running for the Grand Slam in 2022, last triumphed on London’s grass in 2010, defeating Berdych in three sets in the last act: 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
