The BEST tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic, managed to reach the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, where a duel against the Italian Mateo Beretini awaits him.
The Serbian ace walked through the tournament in the first three rounds, and then there was a duel with the talented Lorenzo Muzeti, which gave Nole a lot of problems.
Djokovic won that match by the Italian handing him the match with the result 4: 0 for the Serb in the fifth set, and Novak previously lost the introductory two sets.
The first player in the world is the favorite against the ninth racket on the planet, but it should be said that Beretta reached the quarterfinals without a fight, since Roger Federer handed him the match without a fight.
These two tennis players have played one mutual duel so far, at the Final Masters in 2019. Nole then left only three games to the rival because he won with 6: 2, 6: 1.

3:3 – Beretini did not give up after the break. He continued to serve well, Djokovic had a break chance, but he did not use it. Novak scared the fans at the end of the game – he followed one ball, slipped, but fortunately he dropped the racket on time and passed without a serious injury.
3:2 – Another problematic game for Djokovic. Again, the difference was played and again the Serb got away with it. Twice in a row Mateo sent the ball into the net. At this moment, the match was stopped. The players were forced to leave the field, because the fans do not want to leave the stands, although they have to, since curfew is currently in force in France.

2:3 – Mateo doesn’t give up. The guy from Rome managed to win another game of his own and will try to endanger the service of the Serbian ace.
2:2 – The Italian tried, he had 30:30, but in the most important moment, Nole strengthened and leveled the score again in the third segment of the match.

4:2 – The Italian threatened more or less. The game was played on the difference, but the first player in the world did not allow the break chance of the rival and confirmed the advantage gained in the last game.
3:2 – Atomic tennis is now played by Djokovic. He managed to make a break and judging by the course of the second set so far, this should be enough for Nole to take the lead with 2: 0.
2:2 – Novak’s series when he serves is 12: 0 when it comes to points. Beretini currently has no solution for serving the Serbian ace’s games.
