Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic moved into the Olympic quarterfinals on Wednesday to maintain his quest for a ‘Golden Slam.’
The 20-time grand slam champion defeated Spain’s Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 6-3 6-1 in under 90 minutes.
The ‘Golden Slam’ comprises winning all four grand slams — plus the Olympic singles gold — in one calendar year.
Djokovic has already claimed the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon titles this year. He will need to win the US Open in September to complete the grand slam.
An Olympic gold would make the 34-year-old the first ever male player to seal the ‘Golden Slam.’
Germany's Steffi Graf is the only player to have achieved this landmark, completing the feat in 1988.
Djokovic will meet Japan’s Kei Nishikori in the quarterfinals.
