Novak Djokovic Back to Best in Destruction of Alexander Zverev
As one of the most storied players in the history of the sport of tennis, the legend of Novak Djokovic is already set in stone. As a consistent winner, though, the Serbian looks set to move closer to another major Grand Slam win. This came after his destruction of Alexander Zverev in the last eight, booking a place in the semi-finals for himself.
The 32-year-old played some vintage tennis as he took the young star to the cleaners. A whopping 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 win meant that he has moved into the last four despite the rain delaying the match for some time. This would put Djokovic en route to win a fourth straight Grand Slam in a row, marking him as one of the truly great achievers of the sport.
Now, Djokovic will play Dominic Thiem, who took out exciting Russian Karen Kachanov, in the semi-finals. This will take place on Friday, with the two players playing to see who will take on the other semi-finalists – Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
It certainly sets up the French Open for one of the best finals that we have seen in recent years. One issue, though, is that poor weather is expected in Paris for Friday – that could, just like the quarter finals, have a bearing on how the matches are able to be played.
For now, though, it’s safe to say that Djokovic is moving ever-closer to another amazing achievement.
