In what was a re-run of July’s Wimbledon final, Djokovic dominated in precisely the way this opportunity to reach his final final of the year.
A set hasn’t dropped all week.
“I think it was the best match I’ve played so much this week,” Djokovic said.
Widely seen as the very best returner in the game Grand Slam winner Djokovic has in fact been notable this week.
He’s yet to be divided in four matches – facing just two break points – and Anderson was taken by it before the sixth game of the opening set to win his first point.
The South African won a total of seven things on the Djokovic serve in the whole match.
Functions that totaled more than 130mph, where Anderson delivered large, Djokovic’s were around the markers that is 114mph but were about setting, placement and accuracy up another shot.
He overcome Anderson 6-4 on aces – no mean feat against a participant for racking up the aces he has been donating money to charity for every one .
Along with also his total of first-serve points won has been a substantial 85%.
Asked in his on-court interview if it had been some of the best serving he has ever produced, Djokovic responded:”Possibly. It’s not really common to serve more aces than Kevin. That stat aids the confidence.”
