“Then in the third set I had a match point and I missed the forehand but this is tennis. I just tried to be ready for the next set, which I started off really well.”
He added, “I think we play really similarly – you have to return as many balls as possible, he’s such an incredible server. So I was just trying to push him around a little bit – I’m not going to tell you the tactics.”

While Djokovic said, “I was, in a way, shocked with my level, you know, in a bad way. There was not much I was doing right in the first two sets

“I guess this is one of the worst Grand Slam matches I’ve ever played, at least that I remember.”
