On Thursday at the Tel Aviv Watergen Open, Novak Djokovic breezed through Pablo Andujar to reach the semifinals. As the number seven player in the world, Djokovic has not competed in a normal ATP Tour event since the Italian Open in May. He had previously only played in Roland Garros, Wimbledon, and the Laver Cup this summer.

Djokovic defeated Andujar 6-0, 6-3 in just over an hour and 28 minutes, just his fourth match since he won his 21st grand slam title at SW19 in July.

After seven straight wins for the Serbian, Andujar eventually broke through after a 20-minute marathon. During the first match, “everything went perfectly for me,” Djokovic stated, according to

My winning streak was seven games in a row, and the eighth game was a battle that lasted at least 15 minutes. I’ve played a lot of games, but this was easily one of the longest ones I’ve ever been a part of. However, Pablo fought hard and played an excellent match as well.

Liam Broady, the number six seed from Great Britain, defeated the fifth seed, Biotic van de Zandschulp, in an impressive 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 match in Israel.

Champion seed and runner-up in the US Open Also advancing to the quarterfinals was Casper Ruud, who had a tough 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Nicolas Jarry. In the round of 16, Jannik Sinner beat Nuno Borges 6-3, 6-4 in the Sofia Open. After the Italian advanced, Holger Rune beat Lorenzo Sonego 6-7 (1) 6-4 6-3 to join him in the round of 8.
