Novak Djokovic and Adrian Mannarino are facing each other in this Wimbledon 2017. Because of the huge marathon match between Rafael Nadal and Gilles Muller on the Manic Monday, the next game of Djokovic vs Mannarino was cancelled and postponed on this Tuesday at centre court.
Djokovic will know the importance of staying at the top of his game throughout against to Mannarino. He said that after his third round win “Ernests Gulbis is someone that is very unpredictable and has a huge serve, with that kind of game, very powerful, fast game from back of the court, It’s not easy to play against him on this surface.
“I’m really pleased that I managed to win in straight sets against him, especially in the third set where he started serving better, higher percentage of first serves. He kind of gave it a last shot. I thought he played good quality tennis. I think that only can boost my confidence level for whatever is coming up next.”
The fact that Mannarino is a different player to Gulbis is going to be another issue that Djokovic will have to deal with well.
“Mannarino beat Monfils. Played finals in Turkey. He’s in a good form, but I am, too,” Djokovic added. “Hopefully I’ll be able to, you know, continue playing this well consistently.
“It is going to be different matchup. He’s a lefty. He has a good slice serve. Just very tricky game. I think his game is very, very suitable for this kind of surface. Plays very flat, very low. Just moves around the court, anticipates well.
“You got to give him credit. He beat Monfils, couple good players, reached the fourth round. The matches are only going to get tougher as the tournament progresses.”
Djokovic vs Mannarino is set to begin at 12 pm BST, 1 pm CET, 7 am ET.
