Djokovic vs Fritz preview
Reaching the Australian Open quarter-finals represents Taylor Fritz's best ever showing at the tournament, though he might not appreciate the reward for his endeavours. In eight previous encounters with Novak Djokovic, the American has won a grand total of two sets, and both of those came in one match. A match that Fritz, inevitably, lost.
There are, however, glimmers of hope for the No.12 seed. This is, for instance, the first time he's made it to the last eight of consecutive majors, and his performance against Stefanos Tsitsipas is being hailed as the greatest of his career.
Djokovic has looked vulnerable at times too, though that may have been at least partly down to the sniffles. There were certainly no signs of weakness against Adrian Mannarino, who the Serb dispatched with frightening efficiency on Sunday, dropping just three games along the way.
Despite, or perhaps because of, the straightforward nature of that victory, Djokovic allowed his focus to drift off-court, with the 36-year-old world No.1 deciding to provoke the wrath of the crowd at one point. He's certainly been more animated in recent times, more willing to engage with his environment, and perhaps that's where Fritz's best hope lies.
Wind Djokovic up, and he might just stand a chance. Follow our guide as we explain how you can watch a Djokovic vs Fritz live stream and watch Australian Open 2024 from wherever you are.
