Fair play to Novak Djokovic Wednesday, as the former World No. 1 simply outclassed Borna Coric. The young Croat did have his chances — in both sets, arguably — squandering two break chances at five-all in the first and then dropping serve at 5-6 in the second (after working hard to get back on serve).

Eight matches to choose from tomorrow, kicking off at 5 a.m. ET, and — I must say — it’s nice to see both Rafael Nadal and Nole back in action, playing well. Rafa, who looked sensational Wednesday, will look to keep it rolling against young Russian Karen Khachanov. Meanwhile, the Serb is back in action at 6:30 a.m. ET, which leads us to Thursday’s hitter.
