Novak Djokovic Australian Open quarter-finals ruthless win Adrian Mannarino

Novak Djokovic dominates Australian Open, equals record for most Grand Slam quarter-finals. Next up, a meeting with Taylor Fritz.

Novak Djokovic made a dominant entrance into the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, effortlessly defeating Adrian Mannarino in straight sets. The victory, with a score of 6-0, 6-0, 6-3, took only one hour and 44 minutes and allowed Djokovic to equal Roger Federer's record for the most Grand Slam quarter-final appearances at 58.

Djokovic expressed satisfaction with his performance, describing the first two sets as some of the best he has played in a while. Despite his admission of battling a 'viral infection' earlier in the week, Djokovic has only dropped two sets on his journey to the last eight in Melbourne. He acknowledged the challenge of Mannarino's unorthodox style of play, emphasizing the physical endurance required to navigate the long rallies and strategic maneuvering against his opponent.

Looking ahead, Djokovic is set to face Taylor Fritz in the next round, following Fritz's victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas. Djokovic expressed confidence in his performance and ability to maintain a high level of play, particularly in his serving. He emphasized the importance of refocusing and maintaining a strong mental game to close out matches successfully.
