Game Djokovic!

1-2 (2-0)



Things no longer work for Tsitsipás, at the start of the fourth set he immediately gives away his service game.

Will we get another smooth set win for Djokovic?

Break Djokovic!

1-2 (1-0)



Djokovic has just seen his opponent being treated and the Serb's confidence will only grow further.

He immediately places a break in the fourth set.

The party resumes!

Tsitsipás has a clean shirt and the physio is also off.

The Greek can serve himself.

Tsitsipás gets a treatment from the physio and so the game is stopped for a while.

Set Djokovic!

1-2 (6-3)



It's certainly not over in Paris.

Djokovic has regained his level and is back in the game.

One break turned out to be enough in set three: 6-3.

Does Djokovic come alongside in set 4 or pull Tsitsipás at the longest end.

15 minutes ago

The number one in the world in his red shirt.

Game Tsitsipas!

0-2 (5-3)



Djokovic, who has just exchanged his white shirt for a red shirt, has no answer this time to a drop shot from the Greek.

Tsitsipás will at least postpone Djokovic's set win for a while.

Game Djokovic!

0-2 (5-2)



Djokovic has surprised one of his opponents with a drop shot more often in recent weeks and even now Tsitsipás does not count on the Serb's specialty.

Djokovic is one game away from winning the set.

Game Tsitsipas!

0-2 (4-2)



Tsitsipás doesn't let it go in this third set: he comes back to 4-2.

It is noticeable that there are few long rallies in the last games, so that the games also take less time.

Game Djokovic!

0-2 (2-1)



Now the roles have turned and Tsitsipás' ball comes just outside the lines.

Djokovic therefore comes to 40-30 and then he manages to finish it to keep the initiative in this third set.

0-2 (1-1)



Djokovic shakes his head in dissatisfaction.

After a short check by the referee, his last ball appears outside the lines, so that Tsitsipás also keeps his service.

Game Djokovic!

0-2 (1-0)



Djokovic keeps his own service game and can still hope for a comeback.

For now, however, Tsitsipás has everything under control.

The Greek may have dreamed of his first Grand Slam title tonight and that dream is getting closer and closer to reality.

He is 0-2 ahead in sets against the number one in the world.

Game Tsitsipas!

0-0 (3-4)



Tsitsipás keeps his serve quite convincingly and both men take a short break.

Djokovic in particular will be ready for that, as he looks at any abrasions he may have suffered on his arms after his stumble from just now.

2 hours ago

Phew, after a fantastic rally, Tsitsipás comes out on top.

The eyes are only on Djokovic, who seems to stumble in a desperate attempt to retrieve the ball.

The Serb goes to the side for a while, but he seems to be able to continue like this.

Both gentlemen are clear in their own service in Paris for the time being.
