Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic Beats Marcos Baghdatis to reach fourth round

Jun 26, 2011

Novac Djokovic Wins, Frustration Mounts at Wimbledon Novac Djokovic defeated Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, in a racket-smashingly frustrating match. Djokovic's four set victory buys him a ticket to the fourth round, where he will be taking on 19 seed Michael Llorda.

Djokovic has yet to advance past the Semifinals at Wimbledon. While he has excelled on the hard court, he  has yet to get over the hump at Wimbledon.

Winning on grass would help Djokovic to make a case as the world's top player. Roger Federer has mastered this surface and Rafael Nadal has won two of the last three times here at Wimbledon.

He faces an uphill battle, if want to win it all this year. The frustrating match that just transpired is not a good indication of things to come.

Djokovic has reigned supreme at the Australian Open twice. A Wimbledon victory is exactly what his career needs to make the 24-year-old the world's No. 1. It's unclear as to whether or not one Wimbledon victory
would do so, but it would help immensely.

For now, he needs to concentrate on his next match. Getting ahead of himself could make for a huge upset, as Robin Soderling is evidence of.
