A rocket flies over the world of tennis, sowing chaos in all its rivals and it seems impossible that some external factor can stop it. Novak Djokovic dominates with an iron fist and is not willing to live any more distractions in this Wimbledon 2021, putting all his credentials on the table from the first week to add a new Grand Slam title.
The Serbian squandered any hint of doubt about his ability to neutralize a server like Kevin Anderson in the early stages of this tournament and put together a simply perfect match to get him into the third round. The final result was 6-3 6-3 6-3 in favor of the world number 1.
From the opening stages of the first set there was a clear feeling that Djokovic took this match very seriously and wanted to get a good feeling. Imperial at the service, fast on the move and without fear of inopportune slipping, and moving his hand very well, the Serbian managed to move his rival down the track without taking excessive risks.
In the first serving turns of the South African, Novak did not finish reading the address of the same, but as soon as it was time to put a march and the South African showed his doubts about the ups and downs of the last months in his tennis, the number 1 of the ranking gave a definitive blow.
Same script in the second set, without Novak going through any kind of difficulty in serving. His clairvoyance with this blow continues to grow and is absolutely unapproachable, also taking into account his innate ability to subtract.
Anderson was desperate to see that he failed to score free points on a recurring basis and that every time rally was established, it was almost a miracle that he could get out of the rally unscathed. In the third set everything remained the same, with an Anderson lacking in self-confidence and playing by inertia, knowing that he would be of no use to him, but that he had no plan B to try to get Novak out of his comfort zone .
He finished making the definitive break the good old Novak Djokovic in a brilliant eighth game, which put him on a tray to finish the match with pristine statistics and even better feelings. Goal achieved by entering the third round, without experiencing doubts and seeing himself with the ability to rule world tennis for one more Grand Slam.
It seems difficult to find a brave person who can question his favoritism at Wimbledon 2021.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic began his Wimbledon title defence in style
Present in the audience were Professor Sarah Gilbert and the NHS team who were welcomed with a standing ovation for their notable contribution in developing the Covid-19 vaccine, AstraZeneca.
In a moment best described as emotional, the crowd showed their respect for them, thanking them for their service in these unprecedented times. Unaware of the historic moment that took place, Novak Djokovic said, “I heard the standing ovation, but I didn’t know who it was for”.
In this post-match press conference, Djokovic said, “I don’t know who you are referring to. I heard the standing ovation as I was coming onto the court but I didn’t know who it was for, to be honest”.
