Djokovic Races Into French Open Quarter-Finals

Djokovic Races Into French Open Quarter-Finals

World number three Novak Djokovic has booked his spot in the quarter-finals of this year's French Open after crushing Peruvian Juan Pablo Varillas on Sunday.

The serb won 6-3 6-2 6-2 on a windy day on Philippe Chatrier court to continue his bid for a record 23rd Grand Slam men's singles title. 

Although Djokovic started edgily with a double fault, he was rarely troubled as he completed victory in just under two hours with a classic serve/volley.

"It was a great atmosphere, I really felt the love today – thank you for your support," said the 22 Grand Slam champion. 

"Today was the first time I’d played [Juan Pablo Varillas]. 

"In the last couple of years he’s started to make some progress and he’s a real specialist on this surface.

"I had to try and dictate the points because he’s very consistent. 

"It was the highest level I’ve played at in this tournament and I’m very, very happy."

Djokovic will now play Karen Khachanov in the French Open quarters.

It will be his 17th quarter-final at Roland Garros, a record he now holds after moving ahead of the injured 14-time champion, Rafael Nadal.

A win against Khachanov will guarantee that he will be two wins away from a historic 23rd Grand Slam title.
