He asked Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley to relax quarantine rules via a letter. A total of 72 players – including Djokovic – were unable to leave their hotel rooms for 14 days.
Despite being widely criticised for the letter, the Serb has maintained focus on the court and has stormed to the quarter-finals. There he takes on German youngster Zverev.
It certainly hasn’t been smooth running for Djokovic, however, so far. He did ease through his first round meeting with Jérémy Chardy on 8th February. The iconic player won 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 to set up a match with Frances Tiafoe.
But despite his best efforts, the American came up short. The world number one won the tie 6-3, 6-7, 7-6, 6-3. Another American was up next in the form of Taylor Fritz. But again it was the Serb who came out on top. He won 7-6, 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 6-2.
Canadian Milos Raonic then stood between the world number one and a place in the quarter-finals. The number 14 seed, however, failed to live up to expectation. Djokovic clinched victory with relative ease, winning 7-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4.
Sixth-seed Zverev has also defeated two American opponents on his route. He overcame Marcos Giron in round one, before beating Maxime Cressy in round two. The latter was a straight-set victory, with another straight-set win over Adrian Mannarino following in the third round.
The German then edged past Djokovic’s compatriot Dušan Lajović in the fourth round at Margaret Court Arena.
Djokovic is currently available at 18/35 to win the match.
Zverev is available at 9/5.
Grigor Dimitrov and Aslan Karatsev also go head to head in a quarter-final encounter on Tuesday. And on Wednesday, Stefanos Tsitsipas meets Rafael Nadal, with Andrey Rublev and Daniil Medvedev completing the round.
