Wimbledon 2022 : Djokovic storms into third round with kokkinakis thrashing

Top seed Novak Djokovic looked every bit the dominant player who is the defending champion in the Wimbledon championships. Djokovic beats kokkinakis by 6-1,6-4,6-2 to stay on course for fourth consecutive Wimbledon title to move level with Pete Sampras on seven and within one of men’s record holder Roger Federer, and on this form, it is hard to see anyone stopping him. It was the 23rd straight victory for Djokovic at the grasscourt grand slam. Djokovic dominated rallies with his precise groundstrokes at was eager to step forward for every opportunity, winning 30 out of 38 points at the net. Djokovic brought the crowd to their feet with the incredible drop shots and when kokkinakis chased a few of them down, Djokovic calmly played the overhead lob to keep pressure on the opponent. The only opportunity kokkinakis had when Djokovic was serving but he duly saved most of the breakpoints and closed out the win in two hours on his second match point in the second round. After completing victory in exactly two hours, Djokovic said, I’m happy with my performance today and quite pleased with the way i’ve raised the level of tennis in two days. Hopefully, I can keep that form, just thinking about the next match and hope things will get better as tournament goes on.
