Portugal’s Joao Sousa never had a chance to get it going in last night’s match against Novak Djokovic. After an hour and 41 minutes, Djokovic sealed the win in three straight sets with a score of 6-0, 6-2, 6-2. Djokovic now heads to the fourth round of action, where he will face Spain’s Marcel Granollers. The two previously met at the 2011 Australian Open, in a match which Djokovic won with relative ease. He’ll look to repeat that win and continue his current momentum, looking to add on to his 2011 US Open win.
After recently losing in the quarterfinals of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati to John Isner, Djokovic is in need of a big win. He kicked off the year in grand fashion with an Australian Open win, but fumbled in the French Open and the finals of Wimbledon. Some of the game’s top names are still in contention, including Murray, Nadal, and Federer, so it won’t be an easy path by any means.
Djokovic once again opted for the adidas Barricade 7.0 over the more recent Barricade 8.0 model. The Barricade 7.0 features a seamless synthetic upper with plenty of ventilation for airflow, and is equipped with the brand’s Torsion System for surface stability.
