Australian Open 2020: Novak Djokovic vs Yoshihito Nishioka, third round, TV schedule, live streaming details and more
- Novak Djokovic will face-off against another Japanese opponent, Yoshihito Nishioka and stay in pursuit of an eighth Australian Open title.
It has been smooth sailing for defending champion Novak Djokovic as he has eased into the third round of the Australian Open in style. The 32-year-old Serb displayed ruthless form against the 145th ranked Tatsuma Ito and looks to be in fine groove entering the third round of his favored Grand Slam tournament. Having brushed Ito aside swiftly, Djokovic will be meeting another Japanese, Yoshihito Nishioka, to remain in course for a record eighth Australian Open title.
The 16-time Grand Slam Champion had shown slightly indifferent form in the first round against German challenger Jan-Lennard Struff who took a set off the Serb in the opening clash. However, there were no such signs present against Ito and Novak demolished his Japanese opponent in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4, 6-2.
Into the third round, Djokovic will be facing the 24-year-old Nishioka who surprisingly ousted British hope, Dan Evans in straight sets. Evans, who was the 30th seed, was left baffled by the prowess of the Japanese. However, Djokovic enjoyed his duel with Nishioka when the duo had met at the 2018 Davis Cup where the Serb had won quite easily. The 16-time Grand Slam Champion should not have to work too much to tame Nishioka and move forward into the fourth round.
