A little weary at the end, but Novak is through 76 75. Thiem next.
Not quite the zip on some of those ground strokes, but his defense and serve are on the return. Get yourself something to eat, Mr. Djokovic and take a nap.
What was more impressive, the Serb’s or the Croat’s resiliency? Not the sharpest baseline slug-fest but you saw some really nice points, great rallies and the Serb, in the end, looks to be finally on the rise. Again, get yourself some pasta and a pillow, Novak.
Tennis is better when players are healthy.
