I've played on better courts - Djokovic disgruntled with quality of Wimbledon surface

I've played on better courts - Djokovic disgruntled with quality of Wimbledon surface

Querrey proved his big-match mettle against Novak Djokovic previous year but his second grand slam quarter-final will be a real test inside a raucous Centre Court.

On Saturday, his former coach Boris Becker said he had witnessed enough in the first week of Wimbledon to confirm that the Serb has rediscovered his love for the sport."Boris knows me very well". I am sure the groundsmen are the best in the world, but grass is the most complex surface to maintain'.

Just to remind you, yesterday Djokovic and Adrian Mannarino didn't play because the organizers refused to move their game to some other place, despite the fact that all other courts at All England Club were available for play.

Twelve months ago he defeated the Frenchman in the second round."I'm delighted with the performance".

Some players voiced concerns about the court conditions over the opening week, including Kristina Mladenovic of France and Alison Riske of the United States, who each fell early during their second-round match on Court 18 on Thursday. "The Centre Court has the roof and lights, we could have played till 23:00". I just helped him out with his diet and I wanted him to succeed, because he is really cool. But the French refused to back down, and both players ended in a tiebreak.

Djokovic got off to the ideal start, breaking Mannarino for a 2-0 lead in the first set and the manner of the performance was mightily impressive. In the other match, Rybarikova was leading 6-3, 2-2 when rain halted play.

Djokovic appeared to grimace in pain a couple of times as his shoulder was being checked.

Djokovic, a three-time Wimbledon champion and 12-time Grand Slam victor, initially expressed his disappointment with the court condition following a third-round victory over Ernests Gulbis on Saturday. "But I've played on better courts". But is true that in the fifth he hit a lot of good spots with the serve, and very consistent.

Novak Djokovic noticed the ball bouncing differently in some patches.

A win over the Spanish great is not all that links them.

With the score at 5-4 and Djokovic serving for the match, Mannarino managed one final heave and pushed Djokovic to deuce once more and one final rally. Wimbledon is the only Slam that attempts to push through the men's and the women's fourth round matches so that from Tuesday the men and the women alternate with a full day of rest the rest of the way to the final.
