Djokovic Into Australian Open Quarterfinals After Defeating Schwartzman

Novak Djokovic has progressed into the quarterfinals of the 2020 Australian Open after securing a straight-sets victory over 14th seed Diego Schwartzman.

It’s the fourth round of a Grand Slam and Diego is a great quality player

Djokovic hit 38 winners to Schwartzman’s 17, converted 50% of his break point chances and won 62% of points at the net.

It sets up a showdown with Canadian Milos Raonic for a place in the semi-finals.

“It feels great. I had a fantastic couple of matches in a row, center court, last two rounds,” Djokovic said.

“I felt more confident going through the ball, hitting serves really well.

“Today was a good test because Diego was in form, he hasn’t dropped a set in three rounds. Obviously he can be a very dangerous opponent from the baseline if you give him time. I knew that.

“I stepped out on the court with a clear game plan what I need to do. I think I kept things pretty much in control in all three sets.

“Maybe could have finished the match a bit earlier. But, you know, all in all, it was a very solid performance.”

“It’s the fourth round of a Grand Slam and Diego is a great quality player,” Djokovic said.

“He has had a terrific tournament in first three rounds. I knew if I gave him time, he could do damage from the back of court … I tried to mix it up, maybe bring him to the net a few times with the slice and it worked really well.”

Can the Serb go all the way down under?
