With a 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 victory on Friday, Novak Djokovic decisively eliminated fellow Serb Miomir Kecmanovic in his unrelenting quest for a fourth straight Wimbledon victory.
In the first set of his third-round match on Centre Court, the top seed was unbeatable and won it in 24 minutes.
The loudest cheer of the day was given to Kecmanovic, the 25th seed, when he eventually scored after 35 minutes by winning a lengthy service game.
However, Djokovic was miles ahead of his 22-year-old competitor as he made it to Wimbledon’s round of 16 for the fourteenth time.
The 35-year-old just needed one serve break to win the second set, and he broke twice in the third to take a 5-2 lead until a few sloppy games significantly marred his record.
However, it didn’t change the outcome; Djokovic went on to win to set up a matchup with Tim van Rijthoven, a Dutch wildcard.
