Wimbledon: Djokovic advances in three straight sets

Novak Djokovic reached the third round of Wimbledon with a confident performance, defeating Australian Tanase Kokinak in three straight sets. But the big surprise is that Casper Rudd, who took third place, did not go further.

Novak Djokovic arranged for Thanasi Kokkinak easily. The first ball went to the Australian, but then the Serb dominated the confrontation, deserving the world’s first chance. In the first set, Kokkinakis was only able to serve once, so the match ended 6:1 in just half an hour.

The second set was tighter, but it could be felt that Djokovic was in control even with half the force. It wasn’t even an hour and a half and it was already 2-0.

The third match also started with Djokovic’s break. Kokinakis only had moments, and was unable to finish the engagement. The third group went to Serbia with a score of 6:2, bypassing Kokkinakis in all relevant indicators.

To his great surprise, Casper Rudd, who was in third place, was eliminated. The Norwegian, who reached the final of Roland Garros this year, managed to win the first set against Ugo Humbert, but then won three matches in the French series, making the match his own.

In the women’s event, two of the three-time Grand Slam winners said goodbye to more fights: 2016 Roland Garros and 2017 Wimbledon champions, seventh seed Garbine Muguruza, and Emma Radocano, the young Briton who triumphed at the US Open last year, was also eliminated. . Muguruza still suffered a surprisingly smooth defeat from Belgium’s Gret Minin in his first round match, which was brought in from Tuesday, and won the day 6-0 after winning a 6:4 set yesterday. Radocano also went out in two matches, beating French Caroline Garcia in 87 minutes.
