‘Australian Open 10 times win’ Djokovic advances to the semifinals
Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia), who is running toward the best player of all time, has advanced to the semifinals of the men’s singles at the 2023 Australian Open tennis tournament.
On the 25th (Korean time), Djokovic had a men’s singles quarterfinal match against world number 6 Andrei Rublev (26, Russia) in Melbourne, Australia.
On this day, Djokovic boasted a perfect match, never giving up his serve game, and won with a set score of 3-0 (6-1 6-2 6-4) in 2 hours and 3 minutes.
With this, Djokovic has won 26 consecutive Australian Opens. The last time Djokovic lost at the Australian Open was in the round of 16 in 2018. At that time, Djokovic lost to Jeong Hyeon (27).스포츠토토
Djokovic gave up only one set in five matches of this tournament. In the second round, he gave up only one set to his opponent Enzo Cuaco (28, France), and won the rest of the match 3-0.
Previously, Djokovic did not participate in this event last year. This is because the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) was not vaccinated and did not match Australia’s quarantine policy.
Djokovic is racing toward winning this tournament, which he has been playing for the first time in two years. Djokovic is the strongest Australian Open ever and is aiming for his 10th title in this tournament.
In addition, Djokovic is currently ranked second after Rafael Nadal with 21 major championships. If you win this competition, you will be tied for first place with Nadal, who is 22 times.
If Djokovic wins this tournament, he can return to world number one. Current world number one Carlos Alcaras (20, Spain) did not participate in this tournament.
The matchup for the semifinals of this tournament was compressed into a confrontation between Djokovic and Tommy Paul (26, USA), Stephanos Tsitsipas (25, Greece) and Karen Hazarov (27, Russia).
