Novak Djokovic vs Dusan Lajovic: Novak Djokovic will square off against Dusan Lajovic on Friday (April 21) in the quarter-final of the Srpska Open in Banja Luka.

Before the Banja Luka, he faced an early exit at the Monte-Carlo Masters, against Lorenzo Musetti. His unvaccinated status saw him missing the Sunshine Double in the USA. Prior to the hard-court masters’ tournaments, he was defeated by the eventual champion Daniil Medvedev in the semi-final of the Dubai Open. This tournament was his first one since winning his 22nd Grand Slam at the Australian Open by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final. And before the Grand Slam, he won the Adelaide International also. The World No.1 is on a 17-2 win-loss record this year.

He also failed to qualify for the main draws at the Indian Wells Masters.

He started this year at the ASB Classic and went on to get knocked out in several tournaments- Australian Open, Cordoba Open, Argentina Open, Rio Open, and Chile Open.
