Djokovic admitted: “At that time I was losing the advantage against Sinner. But he, like anyone, knows how easy it is to turn the tide of a game. I’ve always believed that I could turn things around. I know that, you know, the experience that I get will help me prevail in situations like this.
I didn’t experience any physical trauma or anything like that. It’s just a matter of changing the way the game plays. I did that after losing 2 sets in the Roland Garros final against Tsitsipas. And today it succeeds, although it doesn’t always do the same thing. It is not a guarantee of victory.”

Right from the beginning of the third set when I broke the serve early. , I felt that I found my rhythm and my rhythm in the strokes. I saw a little doubt in his play,” Djokovic added of Sinner.

Leading 0-15, the Italian player had a forehand but unfortunately the ball hit the edge of the net and bounced back to make it 0-30 for Nole.
The second big moment came later when Djokovic served at 30-30. This is an opportunity for Sinner to reclaim the break and boost morale. The 20-year-old player repeatedly sent the ball to two corners of the court, causing Djokovic to move defensively.
But even at 35, Nole still loves it. The Serbian defended brilliantly and then scored with a cross-court backhand before lying with his arms wide in celebration. Since that time, Djokovic won 15 games and only 6 games belonged to Sinner.
