Novak Djokovic v Thanasi Kokkinakis Live
Top seeded Serbian Novak Djokovic will go up against the young Australian Thomas Kokkinakis, in the third round of French Open on Saturday afternoon.
The 19 year old Australian is coming in the most important game of his young career so far, after fighting hard against his veteran compatriot Bernard Tomic. He staged a remarkable comeback from two sets down and won the game with 3-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 8-6. This win also helped him avenge his fourth round defeat in Indian Wells, earlier this year. Moreover, prior to coming in Paris, Kokkinakis also won a challenger event in Bordeaux.
As for Djokovic, his bid for the first Roland Garros title is still strong, having just moved past this adversary Gilles Muller in straight sets. With an incredible win record of 35-2 this season, Djokovic has won two masters title back to back on clay – the Monte Carlo Masters and Rome Masters, routing Tomas Berdych and Roger Federer in the final respectively. In addition to this, the world no. 1 has also won the Australian Open.
For this match, it is of no doubt that Djokovic is the favorite one. The Serbian shouldn’t have any difficulties in moving past his inexperienced opponent to the next round.
