Novak Djokovic is in the semi-finals of the Australian Open and broke the record. He defeated Russian Andrei Rublev to celebrate his 26th consecutive win in Melbourne.
Tennis star Novak Djokovic reached another milestone in his successful career by reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open. The 35-year-old Serbian player defeated Russian Andrei Rublev 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in the quarterfinals. Djokovic took his 26th consecutive victory at the Grand Slam tournament in Melbourne, drawing with US record holder Andre Agassi.
The fifth seeded Rublev also lost the seventh quarter-final in a major tournament. Djokovic is the clear favorite against Tommy Paul in Friday’s 44th Grand Slam semi-final. Number 35 in the world. He had previously beat compatriot Ben Shelton 7:6 (8:6), 6:3, 5:7, 6:4, becoming the first American to break into the top four in Melbourne in 14 years.
Djokovic has won all of his previous nine semi-finals in Melbourne. Unlike his last 16 win against Australian Alex de Minaur two days ago, Djokovic didn’t always look satisfied.
The 21-time Grand Slam tournament winner argued with coach Goran Ivanisevic, arguing with the wind and complaining to the referee about a fan. “He seems a little more nervous and optimistic, not as calm and confident as he was in the last game,” TV expert Boris Becker said of his former protector.
