Novak Djokovic this is a good border – and will continue to be at least in time – the best tennis player of the planet. The winner of the last Grand Slam tournament and leader of the world rankings is also the best favorite to win the title of 1,000 masters of Miami. None of this was relevant to Federica Delbonis, who played it as equal in the third round of the tournament. The original series gave 7-5, but in the second played on a high level, which was 6-4 and took the definition into the third set.
Djokovic, who is looking for the seventh title in the tournament, dominated the game in the first match games. With a pause in the fourth game he advanced from 3 to 1. And although Argentina moved from a minor to a bigger one, Nole reached the tenth game with the opportunity to close a quarter with his job. However, he was entrusted and Delbonis, who moved very well on the court, came out and pressed, recovered his wishes and then leveled the score 5-5.
The latest games of the set were very similar. The tile, which was equal to number one, once again with some doubts in the 11th match. But this led to a weakness of 0-30 in order to break the game and in the next it broke nothing and closed the set.
Djokovic hit again in the second set and took the lead 3-1 with a break. But the Serbian seemed to be deconcentrated and more unusual than usual. Delbonis, despite being on the board, continued to press and play tennis at a very good level. And he had his prize.
Because he immediately fell out with a defeat that ended with a parallel passage. And this caused the number one, disappointed, crashed his racket to the ground. With convincing and aggressive tennis, Argentinka returned to the break of the 7th game for 4-3 and before the Serb who could not find the answers and argued with himself, he took part.

The Serbian, coming from suffering in Indian Wells, is early and surprisingly eliminated, winning in the first appearance with 7-6 (7-2) and 6-2 to Australian Bernard Tomic. Delbonis (83th place) with a great effort surpassed another Australian, John Millman, 7-5, 3-6 and 7-6 (7-2).
Azuleño wants to add his first victory to number one because he lost the only game he played against the player in this position. It was against Roger Federer in the second round of Indian Wells last year.
Djokovic is a big favorite of the competition, who does not take part in No. 2 in the world, Spaniards Rafael Nadal, who were already eliminated in 3rd place, German Alexander Zverev and 4 and champion in Indian Wells, Austrian Dominik Thiem. His biggest opponent is Swiss Roger Federer (5th) who defeated Moldovan Radu Albut with a big anxiety with 4-6, 7-5 and 6-3 on Saturday, and this Monday will be measured – not before 14 in Argentina – with a Serb Filipom Krajinovićem.
Another outstanding match this week was in the first round, last year last year, US John Isner (9th) and Spanish Albert Ramos Viñolas (86th). The Americans won 7-5 and 7-6 (8-6) and played in round 16 with the winner of the Canadian Milos Raonic (14th) and British Kyle Edmund (22nd).
In addition to Delbonis, another Argentinean Leonardo Mayer (62), who will clash on Monday – around 19 of our country – against Stefanos Tsitsipasu (10th). If he goes to the second round, Grk will move from eighth place to the rankings on Juan Martin Del Potro, who after the break of his right knee is looking for the best shape of his knee and wants to avoid surgery in the area.
