Novak Djokovic qualified for the Wimbledon 20021 quarter-finals, dominating Cristian Garin in straight sets: final results 6-2 6-4 6-2. The Serbian champion showed a tennis impossible to stem for the Chilean (despite an interruption due to rain), notoriously a much more talented player for clay-courts.
Now Nole, in the round of 8, will meet Marton Fucsovics, the tournament's great outsider. Below the match-point.
In the other matches, Karen Khachanov beat the young American Sebastian Korda 3-6 6-4 6-3 5-7 10-8, on his first participation in Wimbledon.

Korda, followed by his father Petr the 1998 Australian Open, dominated the match for long stretches before being defeated in the fifth set. Matteo Berrettini becomes the fifth Italian tennis player in history to reach the quarter-finals on the lawns of the Championships.
Berrettini, despite some problems at the start, maintains incredibly high standards and grabs the thirtieth success of the season thanks to an excellent 6-4 6-3 6-1. Now he will wait for one between Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger Aliassime.
