After leaving the Chilean on the road Cristian Garin, Novak Djokovic must face the hungarian Marton fucsovics for a place in the semifinals of Wimbledon. It will be the third meeting between the two, the previous two were victories for No. 1.
18-0 is Djokovic’s absurd record in Grand Slam tournaments this season. The Serbian has already been crowned at Roland Garros and in Australia, and will seek to lift the cup in England to reach the US Open with the latent possibility of winning the four major tournaments in the same year, something that only Rod Laver and John Donald Budge achieved in the male circuit.
In addition, he could go for the Golden Slam, if it is enshrined in the Olympics, of course. And that blessed 18 is his streak at All England too, capped off in 2018 and 2019, ahead of pandemic cancellation in 2020.
The game, scheduled for the first turn of the central court, can be seen by ESPN 2 from 9:30 ARG / 8:30 CHI / 7:30 COL. The winner must face the winner of the duel between Canadian Denis Shapovalov (12th) and Russian Karen Khachanov (29th).
