Not worried by Yoshihito Nishioka (6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in 1h27), Novak Djokovic qualified for the knockout stages of the Australian Open on Friday. Welcome to the Djokovic clinic. Here, the hand holding the scalpel is not trembling. Everything is surgical, precise and everything that goes beyond it is mercilessly eradicated. The world n ° 2 demonstrated it again during its third round of the Australian Open. In the role of the patient, the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka could only note the mastery of the title holder. Reduced to the role of extra in what quickly looked like a workout in public, Nishioka took a lesson in tennis. Remarkable in service (17 aces, 95% of points behind his first ball), Djokovic returned to the locker room without having had the slightest adversity in front of him. He even had to wait for his very last serve to face his first break point. Obviously saved by an ace. Surgical, we tell you.
