Suara.com – Serbian tennis player Novac Djokovic made it to the quarter-finals of the Australian Open even though two days earlier he suffered an abdominal muscle problem in the third round match.
The defending champion qualified for the quarter-finals after beating Canadian Milos Raonic in five sets 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 at the Rod Laver Arena, Sunday (14/2/2021).
“I feel good enough to compete and fight, I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t in good shape to get on the pitch and reap the win,” Djokovic was quoted as saying Among from Reuters.
Even so, Djokovic showed signs of discomfort in his match, which also marked the second male player to reach 300 Grand Slam wins.

14th seed Raonic has not previously won a set against Djokovic in three Grand Slam encounters. When he secured the second set, surprises were expected.
But Djokovic, who is chasing a ninth Grand Slam title in Melbourne, responded to the defeat by leveling him up and increasing his streak over Raonic to a 12-0 win.
In the last eight, the Serb will face Germany’s Alexander Zverev for a ticket to the semifinals.
