Serbian Novak Djokovic seems to have no rival in the grass of Wimbledon and this Monday he got rid of the Chilean Cristian Garin for 6-2, 6-4 and 6-2, to sign his presence number twelve in the quarter finals of the tournament.
The Belgrade player extended his streak in the second round of the London ‘major’, in which he has not fallen since 2006 against Mario Ancic, with another impeccable performance against Garín, who had never won a match at Wimbledon before this year.
The Chilean tried it on a Central court with an increasing influx of public, but was not able to harm a Djokovic who seems thrown towards his sixth title in the Cathedral. He signed an exemplary game at the service, with percentages of firsts above 85% and only conceding two break points to his rival, who could not convert.
Can’t say that Garín did not try to hold on with nails and teeth to the match. Especially in the second set, the Chilean signed some huge quality exchanges, but most fell on the side of the number one, who brought out his killer instinct every time he approached the network.
After getting a tight 4-4 into the ninth game and saving countless breaking chances for Djokovic, Garín ended up yielding to serve and thus put an end to the little hope he had of demanding one more sleeve from his rival.
The Central audience knew how to reward the Chilean’s effort with several ovations, but he could not carry it in front of a much superior rival.
In the third and final set, Djokovic did not give options from the beginning, with a new “break”. Garin had thrown in the towel. Shortly after, after one hour and 49 minutes of play, he left the Central defeated, but accompanied by a standing ovation.
“I am always delighted to play here, on the most sacred court in our sport,” said Djokovic. on the court after his victory, adding that he is playing with a “very high level of confidence after winning Roland Garros.”
The Serbian is more favorite than ever and the more games he plays, the better color he has on the court, where he has not left a set since his debut against Jack Draper. His consecutive win count at Wimbledon goes up to eighteen and he will seek a place in the semifinals against the winner of the duel between the Hungarian Marton fucsovics, executioner of russian Andrey Rublev.
Djokovic has a record of nine wins and two losses in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. He has only fallen in this round in 2009, against Tommy Haas, and in 2017, against Tomas Berdych.
