Novak Djokovic, on the Philippe Chatrier, defeated Ricardas Berankis for 6-1 6-4 6-1, thus accessing the 4th round of the Roland Garros 2021, in the second week, where he will meet the young Italian Lorenzo Musetti. Nole dominates by 6-1 both in the first and in the third set with the only set of the relative fight in the middle, closed for 6-4 with a single break centered by Nole in the fifth game and defended with total tranquility.
A little more than an hour and a half is enough for Djokovic to dismiss a first week stingy with pitfalls and project himself to the match against Musetti scheduled for Monday. Lorenzo Musetti won the tenth Italian derby played at Roland Garros in the Open Era.
Thanks to the success obtained against Marco Cecchinato, he became the sixth player in history since 2000 to reach the round of 16 of a Grand Slam in his absolute debut. For Musetti it is also the first victory in the fifth set.
