BETTING: Top-seeded Novak Djokovic beat Slovenia’s Aljaz Bedene 6-3 6-3 6-2 on Friday to advance to the French Open fourth round and remain firmly on track to battle for a record 21st victory in Grand Slam.
The 35-year-old world number one, who was on the court for less than two hours, will next face 15th-seeded Argentine Diego Schwartzman.
“It is not possible to play perfectly but to strive to play close to perfection,” Djokovic said in an on-court interview.
“I want to play my characteristic game, my aggressive game. It’s not always possible but today was very good.”
Bedene, ranked 195th in the world after an eight-month layoff and return to action in March, was no match for Djokovic’s power and near-flawless service games.
The Serb lost three break points at 2-1 in the opening set but soon had another chance to break through in just over 30 minutes.
He got two more breaks in the second to clinch it as quickly as the first, with Bedene failing to carve out a single break chance throughout the match and only winning five points on Djokovic’s serve in the second. first two sets.
The third set went the same way with Djokovic breaking early and Bedene, who committed twice as many unforced errors as his opponent, failing to respond before the Serb completed the procedure when the Slovenian rammed a forehand into the net after an hour and 44 minutes.
