Kokkinakis played very well. He didn't fold at any moment.

RG R3: [1] N. Djokovic def. T.Kokkinakis 6-4 6-4 6-4

This was a very good match from Kokkinakis. 12 games against Djokovic and also saved a lot of BPs too. Very very good effort. :hatoff: His forehand is brutal. It will develop over the years and will be a treat to watch. Even Djokovic was frustrated at times with it.

As for Djokovic, played enough to get a solid win and could have had a better scoreline in each of three sets. Easy win for #1.

One more round to the biggest test! Good luck champ. :yeah:

Let the Kokk puns begin :p

Post match presentation: Djokovic was praising the effort by the teenage in French and Kokki could not understand and gave a smile and thumbs up. It was funny. :haha:

Kokk didn't play bad, even got a few low games. However, Djoke was never in trouble and won with ease.

Roland Garros R3: (1)Novak Djokovic def. (WC)Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-4 6-4 6-4

Just another one of those "The kid lost, but made a good image of himself, he will be a big star someday" match. Inb4 PRovic heaps praise on him in the Press conference.

Djoko God only has Gasquet or Chokerson before the QF! There is 0% chance he doesn't make quarters.

Thanasi got an unlucky draw.

Straight forward match for Djokovic who never looked threatened on serve. Kokki did himself proud though.

The Kid never posed any challenge, either b4 or during the match. Made typical rookie mistakes . Novak was good enough BUT not great .
Novak appeared to be winded even in some of the longer rallies , very few and far between.

If Novak plays like this in the QF, it is not a given that he will beat Rafa. If QF match has longer rallies and lot of deuce games, it will be even steven or stakced against Novak.

Pretty good match by the future #1. That FH will be the biggest weapon of tennis in just a few years.

Kokkinakis will be a better version of Coric in 5 years.

Did Djokovic face any BPs? Don't remember any.
Some really good dropshots and volleys by Novak.

Kokkinakis has been the most clutch of his generation during these days.
Really big development since AO 2014 when I first saw him.

Excelent play by Kokk. IMO he is the most talented of his generation, and has the game to be future No.1. Good serve bcs of his height, but good ground game too. He, not Coric, will be No.1. Coric will be No.2 and Kyrgios No.3. He just needs more time to develop his game bcs he has more weapons.
