Djokovic advances to quarterfinals
    2017-July-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

NOVAK DJOKOVIC played the first match of this year’s Wimbledon tournament under a closed roof on Centre Court, and he won it in straight sets.

The three-time champion at the All England Club beat Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 Tuesday in a fourth-round match that was postponed from Monday.

In the first women’s quarterfinal, American Venus Williams made short work of Jelena Ostapenko, 6-3, 7-5. Ostapenko was the 13th seed at Wimbledon after winning the French Open as an unseeded player earlier in the year.

During the third set, with Djokovic already up a break, the second-seeded Serb asked for a medical timeout and a trainer examined and stretched his right shoulder.

Djokovic appeared to grimace in pain a couple of times as his shoulder was being checked.

“It’s been something that I’ve been dragging back and forth for a while now,” Djokovic said. “But I’m still managing to play, which is the most important thing.”

Djokovic will face 2010 Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych, a man he has beaten 25 times in 27 matches in the quarterfinals the next day.

The men traditionally have Tuesday off at Wimbledon, but Rafael Nadal’s five-set loss to Gilles Muller on Monday forced Djokovic’s match to be pushed back a day. The rain started at about 11:30 a.m.

The opening match on Centre Court was due to start at noon, so the roof was closed for the first time this year.

Djokovic was broken only once in his match, in the second set. But the 12-time major champion, who won the Wimbledon title in 2011, 2014 and 2015, broke Mannarino early in the third and advanced to the quarterfinals at the All England Club for the ninth time.
