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.

an hour 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.
