Novak Djokovic ready for Zverev test

Novak Djokovic believes he is in top form on clay ahead of his quarter-final meeting with Alexander Zverev.

Djokovic will hold all four Grand Slams at the same time if he manages to claim a second title in Paris and he is yet to drop a set at the French Open this year.

The Serb downed Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff to reach the last eight, and the 32-year-old has no concerns over his form going into his next assignment against Zverev on Wednesday.

“I’m really pleased with every aspect of my game,” said Djokovic, who is 3.50 to win the French Open outright.

“So everything is coming together beautifully. “I reached the quarter-finals and played as closest to my best tennis on clay as I think I can be at the moment.”

Djokovic won the French Open in 2016, beating Andy Murray in the final, but has fallen at the quarter-final stage in each of the last two years.

Djokovic is 1.91 to win 3-0 on Wednesday, while Zverev can be backed at 5.50 to claim a win.

Rafael Nadal remains the favourite to take the top prize as he seeks a 12th French Open crown, with the Spaniard 1.67 to win the tournament outright.

Zverev is 34.00 as he seeks a first Grand Slam title and last year’s runner-up Dominic Thiem can be backed at 8.00.
