The Serbian Ace is Challenged in a Tension-Filled Showdown!
It’s hard to categorize a victory over Gilles Simon as a bad day, but it was clear to all watching that the world’s number one ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic was not having one of his better days as he barely survived a nail-biting five-set encounter to continue onhis quest for a sixth title at the Australian Open.
Djokovic finally finished off Simon 6-3, 6-7(1), 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 at Rod Laver Arena to reach his 27th straight Grand Slam championship quarter-final. The streak equals Jimmy Connors‘ mark for second place in the list of most consecutive last eight appearances at majors.
Djokovic converted just six of his 25 break point opportunities and committed 100 unforced errors. ONE HUNDRED unforced errors. And he still won, although it took him four and a half hours to do so. Djokovic will next face seventh seed, Japan’s Kei Nishikori, who beat No. 9 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to advance.
