‘Everything is going in the right direction’ for Novak Djokovic as he makes it 20-0 in 2020
The Novak Djokovic juggernaut rolled into the quarter-final of the Western & Southern Open with a straight-sets win over Tennys Sandgren.

Djokovic broke in the opening game of each set and never looked back as he completed his 20th consecutive singles win of this season.
And in further good news for the 17-time Grand Slam, his neck was much better following problems during his opening-round win on Monday.
“I’m as close to [being] painless [in my] neck as I can be,” Djokovic said. “I’m feeling very good and that has obviously positively reflected on my game today.”
He added: “All in all it was just a great performance.
“I felt better and I played better than I did last night. Everything is going in the right direction.”
Next up for the Serb is Jan-Lennard Struff in the quarter-final after the German saw off 2019 finalist David Goffin 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.
“It will be very nice. I played him at the Australian Open, which was a very good match, I think, a very good match for me,” Struff said. “I would love to play him again.”
