It’s time for finals. These games typically come down to razor-thin margins,” Djokovic said. “One serve break was enough in both sets. When I came for this match, Casper was doing fairly well. We both served fairly well, and I think I was able to put a couple returns back into play at some important moments, like the 12th game of the first set. He was made to play and run by me. I was pleased with my performance overall. “I am quite pleased with the performance,” I said. “I wanted to be forceful, and it worked perfectly.” Twitter was abuzz with fan reactions and in this article, we take a look at some of the best ones.
