Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia), the world number one in men’s tennis, advanced to the quarterfinals of the Rome Masters 1000 Series tournament of the men’s professional tennis (ATP) tour.
Djokovic defeated Cameron Nori (28, England, 13th) with a set score of 2-0 (6-3, 6-4) in 1 hour and 30 minutes in the ATP Tour Rome Open singles round of 16 held in Rome, Italy on the 16th.
While Djokovic consistently showed off his one-up skills, a battle of nerves broke out between the two in the second set. With Djokovic leading 2-1 in the set game and trailing 30-40 in the fourth game, Nori showed off a short drop shot that led to a net play. Djokovic quickly ran out and got it, but Nori cleverly returned it, and Djokovic reflexively passed the ball.카지노사이트
A situation where Nori could end the game with a smashing shot in front of the net. Djokovic gave up and walked back, but a stunning shot came out of Nori’s smashing shot hitting him in the leg. Djokovic looked back for a moment and glared at Nori, and Nori gestured sorry and then turned and went back. Djokovic continued to glare at Nori as if he was displeased, but the situation was soon settled.
In this tournament, which starts about two weeks before the opening of the French Open, Djokovic is cruising with light movements. Djokovic was satisfied, saying, “So far, it’s very good,” and looked back, saying, “I’m happy to be able to play in the next game without giving up a set.” Djokovic, the ‘defending champion’, has reached the top six times (2008, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2020, 2022) in this event alone, including his last year.
In the quarterfinals, Djokovic will face Denmark’s ‘divine’ Holger Rune (20th, 7th). The opponent record is tight with 1 win and 1 loss.
