Djokovic vs Etcheverry preview
It’s been far from plain sailing for Novak Djokovic in Melbourne but the Serbian’s hopes of winning an 11th Australian Open title remain intact thanks to two battling displays. Having needed four hours to see off the challenge of 18-year-old Dino Prizmic, the reigning champion was again pushed to his limit, this time by Australian Alexei Popyrin.
Hampered slightly by a wrist injury, Djokovic took his game to another level following a clash with someone in the crowd and eventually secured a 6-3, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3 victory. The world number one will now face Tomas Martin Etcheverry in the last 32 after the Argentine, who beat Andy Murray in the first round, overcame Gael Monfils in straight sets.
Etcheverry has lost both his previous encounters with Djokovic, but has yet to lose a set in Melbourne and enjoyed an excellent 2023 that saw him rise to number 30 in the world, his highest-ever ranking.
The 24-year-old will certainly have to be at his very best if he hopes to upset Djokovic who hasn’t lost in Melbourne since 2018 and will be playing in his 100th Australian Open main draw match – a milestone only four men have achieved at any of the four majors during the Open era.
