Djokovic advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon with a 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Miomir Kecmanovic on Centre Court on Friday. The six-time Wimbledon champion has won the past three men’s singles titles at the All England Club.
The Serbian, who was thrown out of Australia for not being vaccinated against COVID-19, was made to roil hard before getting past South Korean Kwon Soon-woo in the first round. Against Kokkinakis, Djokovic had it easy.
On the other hand, Van Rijthoven road this far hasn’t been a bed of roses. The Dutchman was made to toil hard against Federico Delbonis of Argentina in the opening round before he upset higher-ranked Reilly Opelka in the next.
In the third round, Van Rijthoven had it easy against Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia to set up a date with top-seeded Serbian. The 25-year-old is playing his first main draw in a Grand Slam after failing to qualify for the Australian Open and French Open and he has already impressed everyone.
Ranked 104th in the world, Tim van Rijthoven will be facing No.3, Novak Djokovic, for the first time in his career. Djokovic, who lost to rival Rafael Nadal in the French Open quarterfinals, is seeking his 21st career Grand Slam, equal with Swiss great Roger Federer. Only Nadal is ahead with 22.
