Novak Djokovic shows no sympathy
Top seed Novak Djokovic displayed sheer supremacy at Centre Court on Saturday night when he dismissed France's Jeremy Chardy in straight sets 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.
In the 86-minute clash, Djokovic dropped only one point on his serve in the first set and another in the second. He was relentless all the way and had no sympathy for the Frenchman. “I don’t think you feel sorry for your opponent when you are on court.
You want to win the match regardless of the scoreboard. Of course, he didn’t feel like he could do much on the court,” said Djokovic. He added: “It was a fantastic match.
I felt great from the start till the end. I had that super focus and tried to be out there every point and not allow him to come back in the match. I enjoyed every moment of it, especially the end.”
Today is a special day at Wimbledon with all the men’s and ladies singles round of 16 matches to be played. The exits of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer notwithstanding, spectators here are pinning their hopes on home stars Andy Murray and Laura Robson.
