Novak Djokovic cruised into the Queen’s Club quarter-finals and recorded his 799th career win with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Grigor Dimitrov on Thursday.
Playing with pinpoint accuracy throughout the whole match, Novak broke the Bulgarian’s serve once in the opening set and twice in the second set to dismantle the world number five Dimitrov in just 65 minutes to advance into the quarterfinals at the ATP 500 Fever Tree Championships.
This was Novak’s first Top-10 win of the season.
Speaking after the match, Novak said: “Grigor made some crucial double faults today that handed me the first set. He loves playing on grass, he’s a great quality player.
“Being able to get the first set under he belt was a huge confidence booster for me.
“I made three double faults in the last game and was serving with new balls which usually, on grass, is easier. I made it stressful for myself. I’m glad I manage to close it out”
In the last eight, the Serb will face France’s Adrian Mannarino on Friday.
