Novak Djokovic v Bernard Tomic Live
Top seeded Serbian Novak Djokovic will take on the Australian Bernard Tomic, in the third round of the ongoing Wimbledon Championships, on Friday afternoon.
Djokovic just needed an hour and a half to defeat his round two opponent Jarkko Nieminen, whom he overcame with 6-4, 6-2, 6-3. Tomic on the other hand had to survive a massive 21 aces from his French opponent Pierre-Hughes Herbert, whom he finally defeated with 7-6(3), 6-4, 7-6(5).
Tomic’s season so far has been a decent one. He started his year on an excellent note by reaching the fourth round in the Australian Open, and then the semifinal in the ATP Delray Beach. However, with time, his form seems to have degraded a bit. He hasn’t been able to move past the third round since March.
Djokovic on the other hand is coming in this tournament, looking to make amends for this defeat in the final of the French Open. The world no. 1 and the defending champion had a great run in Paris, before he succumbed to the Swiss Stan Wawrinka in four sets. Apart from this, he has won five titles so far this year.
The Serbian is currently leading 3-0 in his head to head tally against the Australian. And considering the form he is in, he shouldn’t have any troubles in reaching the fourth round.
