Djokovic reaches the Australian Open quarterfinals, matching Federer’s Grand Slam record
Novak Djokovic dominated the Australian Open fourth-round match against Adrian Mannarino, securing a 6-0, 6-0, 6-3 victory. This win marked Djokovic’s 58th entry into a Grand Slam quarterfinal, equaling Roger Federer’s all-time record. Djokovic, vying for his 25th Grand Slam title, showcased remarkable form, bouncing back from challenging initial rounds.
The Serbian aimed for a rare triple bagel, winning the first two sets without dropping a game, but Mannarino prevented this by securing a game in the third set. Djokovic expressed relief at losing that particular game, emphasizing the building tension in the stadium. He is set to face Taylor Fritz in the quarterfinals, who surprised by defeating last year’s finalist, Stefanos Tsitsipas.
American player Coco Gauff also impressed, advancing to her first Australian Open quarterfinal with a decisive 6-1, 6-2 victory over Magdalena Frech. Gauff’s dominating performance included hitting 21 winners and maintaining a flawless record in break points. At just 19 years old, Gauff becomes the youngest woman to reach the Australian Open quarterfinals since 2008, setting up a clash with Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk.
