18-times winner of the Grand Slam titles Novak Djokovic did not struggle but rather dispensed gems of his talent by winning in an hour and ten minutes of play against Korean Kwon Soonwoo at the ATP Belgrade 2021. No problem for the Serbian champion who does not concede nothing, he removed a break point in the final stages of the match, and he seems to be a distant relative of Nole who gave up against Evans in Monte Carlo.
The Serbian still appeared out of condition playing on clay but he grew up and played an excellent match today. In the next round he will face compatriot Miomir Kecmanovic in the quarter-finals and thus found the Serbian derby he wanted, given the tournament at home.
The young Serbian struggled more than expected and won in three sets against Frenchman Rinderknech. The host won the first set 6-3, lost the second undergoing a great comeback from the transalpine but then won the third set with the same result, closing after an hour and 43 minutes of play.
