Djokovic: ‘The match with Rublev in the final tournament is one of the best for me this year’

Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic said he showed the best game of this year in the game against the Russian Andrei Rublev at the final tournament of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).

On Wednesday, Djokovic beat Rublev 6-4, 6-1. The eighth number in the world ranking qualified for the semi-finals of the tournament earlier than expected.

– It’s one of the best matches I’ve played this year, especially in the second set. Simply flawless. I started the match very energetically, I served well. I got a lot of points on the first serve. I think it helps, especially against a very dynamic and quality player like Rublev.

I just managed to find the right game in those moments. I was a little more patient than him in the 10th game of the first set.

Then Rublev lost a bit. It seemed to me that the initiative had passed to my side. I just felt that the first games of the second set would be key. I managed to take a break right away. After that, everything went wonderfully well.

I’m very happy to have reached the semi-finals, it’s good news and a relief before the last game of the group,” Djokovic told a press conference.

In two days, the 35-year-old Serbian will meet Russian Daniil Medvedev.
