Djokovic’s upset feat with record dawn at Roland Garros

Date:

The Serbian Novak Djokovic He starred in a stunning record-breaking performance at Roland Garros. At 37 years old, the champion of twenty-four Grand Slams and world number one sealed one of the victories that mark the great legends of this sport. He doesn’t need any further exhibition at this point in his career, but once again he shows that he is from another world, unfortunately for the Italian. Lorenzo Musetti, who, like him, suffered from the absurdity of the organization’s program, led by a former tennis player Amelie Mauresmo within the French Tennis Federation (FFT).

In 03:07 in the morning locally from Saturday to Sunday, Djokovic exploded. Drunk with happiness and satisfaction, he celebrated another step in the round of 16 of the tournament. The defender of the crown survived by returning to Lorenzo Musetti, 7-5, 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3 and 6-0.

Continue forward then 4h.29′ of confrontation, at the meeting that ends later in Paris. It was after three o’clock in the morning, when the record was established Rafa Nadal and Jannik Sinner ending their 2020 duel at 01:26.

Djokovic also equaled Roger Federer’s record for most victories in the Grand Slam with a total of 369. He has 49 defeats, less than the Swiss’ 60. Rafael Nadal’s balance is 314-43.


Djokovic, who refused to give up his Roland Garros crown and world number one at the same time, will face the Argentine on Monday Francisco Cerundolo, that in a more conventional time he eliminated the American Tommy Paul by 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 and 6-2.

Djokovic was forced into such a scheduling mess because Roland Garros decided to add another match to the central daytime session to minimize the impact of persistent rain. He saved the continuity of the interior Grigor Dimitrov-Zizou Bergs, but He delayed the start of the ‘Nole’ clash until late at night, at 10:30 pm. And it reached early morning because of its marathon duration.

Djokovic was up 4-1 and set point in the tiebreak to win the second, but he was lifted by Musetti, who put a Djokovic against the ropes who revived as he found himself on the brink of KO.

I’m back to normal Lorenzo Musetti a deficit of two sets down to Roland Garros 2021, then the transalpine inexperienced and paying for hazing in the form of cramps.

Epic Djokovic, although at times he was seen to suffer physically, and this effort could cost him later in the tournament. Although he ironically took it in front of the audience who endured: “With this adrenaline, who can sleep? If there is a party I go.” And he thanked the many fans for helping him react in the fourth set.
