Game, set and match!

Novak Djokovic records his second win at Roland Garros!

He trailed 0-2 in sets, but was not put off and slowly but surely got a better grip on Tsitsipás.

The 22-year-old Greek has made it quite exciting, but he is not yet able to book his first Grand Slam victory.

Match point Djokovic!

No, it's not happening yet.

Tsitsipás survives Djokovic's first match point: 40-40.

He continues to follow in the footsteps of his Serbian opponent!

He is at least one game closer to Djokovic.

Break Djokovic!

1-2 (3-0)



We don't really see Tsitsipás as we know him.

He hits the ground hard with his racket and he will no doubt feel like it slips out of his hands.

Djokovic is 3-0 in this fourth set.

Equal in points, not (yet) in sets.

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.

in 4 days

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.

in 4 days

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.

in 4 days

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.

in 4 days

Game Djokovic!

0-2 (4-1)



The number one in the world can't just be beaten and he seems well on his way to winning the set.

He keeps his service game convincingly.

Break Djokovic!

0-2 (3-1)



He hardly cheers, but Djokovic has his break!

He needed no less than five chances.

Tsitsipás suffers a loss of service for the second time this match.

in 4 days

The conditions are ideal for the public in Paris, where it is about 27 degrees Celsius.

The match now lasts exactly two hours.

in 4 days

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.

in 4 days

Game Tsitsipas!

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.

in 4 days

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.

in 4 days

Set Tsitsipas!

0-2 (2-6)



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.

Everything seems to be on Tsitsipás' side at the moment.

Game Djokovic!

0-1 (2-3)



Djokovic convincingly maintains his service game, partly thanks to his third ace.

Perhaps this will give him some air and he can fight back.

Game Tsitsipás! 0-1 (1-3)

Het uithoudingsvermogen van beide heren gaat straks natuurlijk ook een rol spelen, maar vooralsnog heeft Tsitsipás alles onder controle. Hij komt op 1-3 in deze tweede set.
