Novak Djokovic best moments at Roland Garros 2021
With Novak Djokovic set to play in his 11th French Open semi-final, here is a look at his best moments of the tournament so far.
5. A Tennys lesson
In the opening round, Djokovic was superb as he saw off American Tennys Sandgren for the loss of eight games.
The top seed did not lose serve and saved all six of the break points he faced against the world No. 66 – who he is unbeaten against in four meetings.
4. Too strong for Cuevas
The Serbian was arguably even more impressive in the second round – where he dropped nine games in beating Pablo Cuevas.
He struck 32 winners to 22 unforced errors in his first career encounter with the world No. 92 from Uruguay.
3. Berankis masterclass
In the third round, Djokovic stepped it up another level as he steamrolled Ricardas Berankis 6-1, 6-4, 6-1.
The world No. 1 – who is now 11-0 in sets against the Lithuanian – hit a sublime 30 winners to only 18 unforced errors, and did not face a break point.
4. Stunning turnaround to survive Musetti scare
He then dropped his first sets of the tournament to fall 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (7-2) behind against 19-year-old Italian Lorenzo Musetti in the fourth round.
Djokovic, though, remarkably lost just one more game – winning 19 consecutive points in one sequence – and secured his passage when the world No. 76 retired down 4-0 in the decider.
5. Roars past Berrettini
The Serbian overcame a stern test from another Italian, Matteo Berrettini, in the quarter-finals – winning in four sets.
Djokovic failed to finish the match serving at 5-4 up in the third set tiebreak, and the crowd were forced to leave during the fourth set due to a curfew.
The 34-year-old, though, held off the No. 9 seed – reacting with huge roars after clinching his semi-final spot.
