Three small sets and we are already moving on.

Novak Djokovic easily qualified on January 23 at the end of the morning at French time for the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.

The Serb dispatched the current affairs by beating the Australian Alex De Minaur (24th) 6-2, 6-1, 6-2.

Thigh yet bandaged, the world number 5 has never trembled either because of the injury that could wake up or because of his opponent quickly returned to reason.

“I can't apologize for not making the match last longer.

I wanted to win in three sets launched the Serb to the public by estimating to have played his “best match” since the beginning of the season.

The 35-year-old Serb, seeking a 22nd Grand Slam title in Melbourne to equal the record of his Spanish rival Rafael Nadal, will face Russian Andrey Rublev (6th) for a place in the last four.

If he wins his tenth Australian Open, he will also recover the world No.1 spot.

The more he advances, the stronger he is

The imposing bandage on the top of the Serb's left thigh reminded observers that he was indeed suffering from hamstrings.

He had shown worrying signs in the previous rounds, especially against Enzo Couacaud.

This time, he didn't show much.

Better, he quickly put himself in quiet mode, the time for a few first warm-up games.

Once the machine started, Alex De Minaur was eaten raw.

“Today, it was not seen that I was injured continued the Serb.

I've been taking a lot of anti-inflammatory pills the past few days to mask the pain.

Usually I don't like that.

I don't want to go into further explanation, but today was fine.

I don't want to celebrate too soon, I never take anything for granted, but I'm happy with the way I played,

whose ball I hit, whose ball I moved.


Warning: the further the tournament progresses, the more Djokovic seems invincible.

It will be necessary to be strong to prevent it from going to triumph at the end of the week.

Andrey Rublev his next opponent is warned.
