Djokovic competes with world number 13 Cameron Norrie (England) to advance to the quarterfinals. In the match between the two, Djokovic leads with 2 wins and no losses.

Djokovic, who was knocked out in the quarterfinals of the Spreska Open held last month, withdrew from the Madrid Open due to an elbow injury. Since then, he has been resting and concentrating on recovery, and is showing off his strength by participating in the Rome Open.

As Djokovic is cruising, anticipation for the final match with Carlos Alcaras (2nd, Spain) is growing.

Alkaras, who rose to stardom by winning the men’s singles at the US Open last year, set out to conquer the men’s tennis world by sweeping trophies while Nadal and Djokovic faltered this year. Prior to the tournament, Djokovic also paid tribute to Alkaras’ recent performance and looked forward to meeting him in the final.
