Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic has qualified for the quarterfinals of the US Open. The 23-time Grand Slam champion won in three sets over Croatian Borna Gogo: 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. Next Tuesday, Djokovic (36 years old), ranked second in the world, will face American Taylor Fritz, ninth in the world rankings, for a place in the semi-finals.
Djokovic emerged victorious in each of his previous seven matches against Fritz. Fritz defeated Swiss Dominik Stricker (No. 128 in the world) in three sets on Sunday: 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-4.
Djokovic committed only twelve unnecessary errors during his match against Jojo, compared to forty errors for the Croatian. The world’s second seed was able to break the usually strong-serving Gogo no fewer than five times.
Djokovic said after the match: “I knew that Borna is a strong player, he hits strong shots, especially his serve and forehand, which are great weapons, and he moves well for such a big man.” “The key to the match was trying to neutralize his serve. I’m happy I got through it without losing a set.”
Djokovic went missing in New York last year. He was not allowed to enter the United States at that time because he had not been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
