On Friday, Serbian native Novak Djokovic defeated fellow countryman Miomir Kecmanovic in straight sets to go to the Wimbledon fourth round for the fourteenth time.
Djokovic won 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 to win his seventh Wimbledon title and tie Pete Sampras for the record.
The victory on Friday was Djokovic’s 330th Grand Slam triumph overall.
The 35-year-old top seed, who has now advanced to the last 16 of a major for the 55th time, said, “So far, so good.”
“I hold myself to a high standard. The level should always be raised, and things are going nicely.
The last three men’s singles championships at the All England Club have been won by the six-time Wimbledon champion.
The world number 104 upset Georgia’s 22nd seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in his first Grand Slam main draw match, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4.
The 25-year-old Van Rijthoven won the the’s-Hertogenbosch championship last month, beating Daniil Medvedev in the final to demonstrate his brilliance on the grass.
As the seventh person to reach the round of 16 on his Grand Slam debut since 2000, Van Rijthoven remarked, “Playing Djokovic was a dream for me before the tournament even started.
So having the opportunity to do so and perhaps even play on Court 1 or Center Court is lovely and magical.
Tim van Rijthoven of the Netherlands will be the next opponent for the top-seeded Serb.
