Djokovic’s superiority throughout the match was not in question. Serbs served effectively, returning splendidly, and when there were exchanges from the depths of the court, the great majority of them were in their favour. Kokinakis’ only strength was the pass that ultimately earned him seven games.

The next challenger to top seed Djokovic, who made an ace, five breaks and 29 goals on Wednesday, will be compatriot Miomir Kekmanovic. With No. 25, the Serbian eliminated Alejandro Tabello in four sets.
