MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Top seed Novak Djokovic survived a major injury when he edged American Taylor Fritz 7-6 (1) 6-4 3-6 4-6 6-2 to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open on Friday. . Defending champion Djokovic, who was seeking a ninth title in Melbourne, appeared to be in command when he took the first two sets, but began to suffer a side injury early in the third set. He needed to leave the Rod Laver Arena for treatment and winced at times when the 23-year-old Fritz took the opportunity to take the next two sets. The crowd was removed midway through the fourth set when Melbourne’s new COVID-19 lockdown went into effect. But Djokovic, despite still looking uncomfortable, did enough to win the deciding set and live to fight another day.
