Who holds Novak Djokovic’s tenth Australian Open title? And Australian Alex de Minaur certainly does not. The world number 24 barely got 5 matches from the Serb in the 1/8 finals of the Grand Slam tournament.

Novak Djokovic is growing in the tournament. Last week his upper leg prevented him from playing tennis, and today the hamstring injury no longer bothers him.

“I am very happy and I don’t feel anything anymore. Thanks to the medical staff,” Djokovic said afterwards.

Alex de Minaur received a master’s degree from the tennis star and lost in 3 short sets. The Australian saw his opponent serve perfectly and hit beautiful forehands on Rod Laver Arena.

“Was that perfect? ​​Almost. Definitely my best match of the year,” Djokovic said.

De Minor is the last Australian singles. Nick Kyrgios had to cancel just before the tournament due to a knee injury.

Nobody wants to play against him.

Novak Djokovic will face Russia’s Andrei Rublev in the quarter-finals. He needed 5 sets against Dane Holger Rune: 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 4-6 and 7-6.

Rublev won the marathon match with much drama. The match ball rolled out of the net.

After his hard-fought win, Rublev didn’t immediately look forward to a match against Djokovic. “No one wants to play against Novak,” the Russian laughed.
