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.

in 4 days

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.

Tsitsipás also seems well on his way to a love game, but he has to allow one point from Djokovic.
