Djokovic advances to quarterfinals at Australian Open, first appearance in two years

Novak Djokovic (5th, Serbia) advanced to the quarterfinals in the men’s singles at the Australian Open tennis tournament (total prize money 76.5 million Australian dollars, approximately 66.26 billion won), where he participated in two years.

Djokovic defeated Alex Diminore (24th, Australia) 3-0 (6-2 6-1 6-2) in the 4th round of men’s singles on the 8th day of the tournament held in Melbourne, Australia on the 23rd (Korean time). Djokovic played such a one-sided game that he did not even give up a single break point.

Djokovic’s quarterfinal opponent is Russia’s Andrei Rublev (6th place). Djokovic leads against Rublev with 2 wins and 1 loss. This is the first match in a major tournament. 메이저놀이터

If Djokovic continues cruising and lifts the trophy this tournament, he will stand at the top of his 10th Australian Open career. He also tied the record (22 times) for the most major championships in his career with Rafael Nadal (2nd place, Spain). World No. 2 Nadal was eliminated in the second round of the tournament.

Also, if Djokovic wins, he can rise to the top of the rankings, overtaking Carlos Alcaras (Spain), who was absent from the tournament due to injury.
