Cameron put his stamp on Nori Novak Djokovic but saw his Italian Open run end in the fourth round. A 6-3 6-4 win was very convincing for the world number one Nori, who maintained his unbeaten record before the quarter-finals in Rome.

The key talking point came in the fourth game of the second set when Norrie tried to recover an early break. Djokovic brought his opponent back into the game with an easy smash, only for Nori to, by accident, drill the ball through the Serbian’s legs.

Djokovic gave the British number one a very frosty look and the match had an edge after that, but Norrie never really threatened to land more than a glancing blow.

The 27-year-old, who had lost both previous meetings with Djokovic, dropped serve early in the match and was kept at arm’s length for the remainder of the opening set by a tactical masterclass from the six-time champion. .

Oh great! Nori breaks Djokovic with a smash towards his opponent! Djokovic backhands the ball to smash the ball. Nori’s ball hit Djokovic’s ankle. Nori immediately raises his hands, but Djokovic turns and stares at Nori for a few seconds, walking very slowly up to the net!

Novak Djokovic 6-3 6-4 Cameron Norrie – Game, Set and Match!

Nori received extensive treatment on his upper leg and hip flexors during the transition, but Djokovic improved to 0-30, ending the six-time Italian Open champion.

But there was no doubt that Djokovic won 6-3 6-4 to advance to the quarter-finals!

Djokovic’s first serve was impressive as he controlled points and orchestrated rallies. The final moment is a loose forehand return from Nori that goes straight into the net, and there is a short and sharp handshake as the players meet at the net.

I don’t know if Djokovic caught the eye.

After some great gifts from Nori, a big break of service. Two errors from baseline followed a double fault as Djokovic turned up the pressure at a crucial moment in the second set.

But you can’t make those mistakes against Djokovic, and Norrie has now called the coach.

Djokovic dropped an ace to hold at love. The Serbian is still not very happy on the court, and is trying to mop up the loose clay at the base.

There was already some tension under the surface of this match as Djokovic delayed the start time by 10 minutes after going to the treatment room before playing.

But one thing you don’t want to do is tempt Djokovic, and the Serbian unleashed a beautiful forehand winner to break back at 3-3 in this second set.
