4º Set Djokovic (7-6 4-6 6-2 6-3) Fritz

GAME, SET AND MATCH Djokovic closes out the match with a big forehand.

Novak Djokovic found it hard to get the breaking balls and that complicated the match. In the first he was able to win in the tie-break, but in the second he ended up losing, missing several opportunities to break. He managed to do it in the third set and from there on he was able to close his pass to the semifinals

He started the first Grand Slam of the year with a hard-fought five-set win over Diaz Acosta. Then he beat Gaston in three sets and Marozsan in four.

The 36-year-old Serbian tennis player is world No. 1 and is at the top of the ATP ranking.


He has played in 2023 all the finals of a Grand Slam in one year, after winning the Australian Open, Roland Garros, reaching the final at Wimbledon and winning the US Open. He came into this tournament after winning the last Grand Slam of the year where he only dropped two sets during the entire tournament. He arrives after resting after missing the entire Asian tour. However, he took the last Masters 1000 of 2023 by winning in Paris, a place where last year he fell in the final. He was proclaimed champion of the ATP Finals despite losing in the group stage against Sinner. He was unable to become Davis Cup champion when he lost in the semifinals against Italy.

In a duel where the tennis player born in Belgrade was in discomfort and finally his team was eliminated.
