Djokovic continues easily despite losing a set

Defending champion Novak Djokovic hardly gave Dutchman Tim van Rijthoven a chance in the round of 16 at Wimbledon.

The six-time tournament winner from Serbia prevailed 6: 2, 4: 6, 6: 1, 6: 2 late on Sunday evening and thus ended a series of world rankings 104.

Van Rijthoven surprisingly triumphed at the preparatory tournament in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and then received a wild card from the All England Club.

The 25-year-old, who hadn’t won a match on the ATP tour until ‘s-Hertogenbosch, was also convincing in Wimbledon.

His run ended against Djokovic, although he had briefly robbed the third in the world rankings and surprisingly won the second set. As a result, however, the 35-year-old tournament favorite turned up the heat.

In the quarterfinals Djokovic will face Jannik Sinner on Tuesday. In the duel of the young stars, the Italian defeated the Spanish shooting star Carlos Alcaraz 6: 1, 6: 4, 6: 7 (8:10), 6: 3.
