Novak Djokovic’s lapses are brief.
The world’s No. When the world’s No.
Djokovic stated, “Somehow I found the way to win.”
As usual. He is now 17-0 in Grand Slam matches and has won 17 consecutive matches at Wimbledon where he is currently the two-time defending champion.
The Serb was interviewed on court after the match to find out what fuelled his desire to win. He mentioned his youth in a war-torn country.
Djokovic stated that despite growing up in difficult times during the ’90s, failure was never an option for him or anyone in his family. We needed to find a way for us to meet our basic needs to survive in those difficult times. It was hard. It has helped me to be stronger, I would add.”
Monday’s opponent for Djokovic will be No. Cristian Garin, 17th seed from Chile, defeated Pedro Martinez 6-4.
No. Aryna Sabalenka, the 2-seeded player on the women’s side, is in the second week of play and poised for a career break. The Belarusian, who is hard hitting, beat qualifier Maria Camila Osorio Serrano, 6-0, to reach the fourth round. She might be due for a run in a Grand Slam.
Sabalenka is currently the only female among top 20 seeds to not reach a major quarterfinal.
It seems that the time is right to make a change. Sabalenka leads with 32 match victories this year, her seeding record in majors is a career high, and she’s already navigating a draw without eight of the top-ranked women.
Sabalenka stated, “I just keep working, and keep improving.” Every match is different. It is impossible to predict what will happen.
She defeated Osorio serrano and won the match when Osorio went 0 to 6 in the second set.
Osorio serrano stated, “So many opportunities.” “I couldn’t close it.”
Next up for Sabalenka is No. 18 Elena Rybakina defeated American Shelby Rogers 6-1 and 6-4.
No. Iga Swiatek (7th seed), 2020 French Open champion, breezed into fourth round beating Irina Camelia Begu 6-1 6-0. Swiatek is seeking a Wimbledon double, having won the 2018 girls’ singles title.
She said, “It would have been amazing.” It’s another Grand Slam so it’s like a reality for all of us.
