“This match had it all: falls, a crowd, a break. It was a lot of intensity,” Djokovic explained.
“I just felt under tension the entire time. I felt like I missed some of the chances to end the match in the third set.
“I didn’t want to give him too many opportunities to dictate the match.
“That’s why it was just super, super stressful to constantly be under pressure on my service games because his service games were quite smooth with [his] big serve.
“The reaction in the end was just me liberating that tension that was building up for the entire match.”
