Fast and impressive! A direct blow from the right into the net finally put an end to the torment of Andrei Rublev. After three small sets (6-1, 6-2, 6-4) and just over two hours of a one-sided match (exactly 2:03), Novak Djokovic reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open this Wednesday in Melbourne, correcting the Russian, so far sixth racket of the world.

Nice birthday present – a day later – for her mom. Being present in the stands, she had the right to a song from the public.

Forced to wear a bandage on his left thigh due to an injury that woke up at the start of the tournament, he never showed the slightest sign of weakness. On the contrary, he displayed firepower in his strikes and agility on the run, proving that he is in full command of his means. At 35, it develops at the stratospheric level.

This is his 10th appearance in the last four Australian Grand Slams. Every time the current world number 5 has won the tournament. And after such a show of strength, the path to a new title seems royal. 22nd place in the Grand Slam tournament will allow him to join Rafael Nadal on the roof of the tennis Olympus. The Spaniard has already made him his favourite.

In the meantime, he will meet in the semi-finals with the American Tommy Paul, 35th in the world, for a duel between a specialist and a beginner. At 25, Paul indeed reached this stage of a major for the first time in his career following his success earlier this Wednesday over fellow countryman Ben Shelton (89th) in four sets (7-6 (8/6), 6-3, 5- 7, 6-4). β€œI am happy to be here… The start of the second week of the Grand Slam tournament is the dream of all tennis players. So to be here now in the semi-final is amazing,” said Paul.

In the other semi-final, the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, 4th in the world, will play with the Russian Karen Khachanov (20th).
