Novak Djokovic (3rd place, Serbia) has 24 wins in a row at the Wimbledon tennis tournament (total prize money of £435 million, about 64.23 billion won), leaving four wins until the 21st major championship.



Djokovic defeated Miomir Ketzmanovic (30th, Serbia) 3-0 (6-0 6-3 6-) in 1 hour and 53 minutes in the third round of men's singles for the fifth day of the tournament at the All England Club in Wimbledon, England on the 1st. 4) and advanced to the round of 16.



After winning 24 Wimbledon streaks, Djokovic now needs four more wins to complete his four straight victories and his seventh career title.



In addition, the number of major championships has increased to 21, narrowing the gap with Rafael Nadal (4th, Spain), who holds the record for the most 22 times in this category.



Carlos Alkaras (7th, Spain), called the 'second Nadal', turned Oscar Ote (36th, Germany) to 3-0 (6-3 6-1 6-2) in 1 hour and 38 minutes. Made it to the round of 16.



Alkaras is a 'sacred' who reached the quarterfinals at last year's US Open and this year's French Open.



This season, excluding major tournaments, the men's professional tennis (ATP) tour competitions are on a rapid rise, winning the most four times.



In particular, at the Madrid Open in May, which is the highest ranked Masters 1000 event after the ATP Finals and major tournaments, it caused a stir by beating Nadal, Djokovic, and Alexander Zverev (2nd place, Germany) in order to win the championship.



With this, the possibility of a 'big match' between Djokovic and Alkaras in the quarterfinals has increased.



Alkaras will face Yannick Schiner (13th place, Italy) in the round of 16, and Djokovic's next opponent will be Tim Panheitoburn (104th, the Netherlands).



Alkara and Djokovic will face off if they win side by side in the round of 16.



Alkaras has won one of his career battles against Shiner, and this is Djokovic's first encounter with Panheitoburn.
