    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Djokovic – 19 of 55
    32 % Alcaraz – 18 of 56

    Fourth meeting this year in fourth different conditions (claygrasshard – indoors) between the two best players of the last two years, raised great expectations, unfortunately it was a one-sided affair. Alcaraz [2] wasted a double break point in the opening game, and again a double break point trailing 2:3 in the 2nd set – those two games were crucial. Djokovic [1] had played three three-setters at the group stage, in conquering a title in Paris two weeks ago, he also needed three tight 3-set battles, thus his victory under 1.5 hours against the potentially most demanding opponent, couldn’t be expected. “After spending a lot of time on the court in the first three matches, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel tonight,” said Djokovic. “This year I wasn’t maybe as sharp in the second and third group matches, particularly, but I think tonight from the very beginning I felt the ball well.”

    Serve & volley: Djokovic 3/6, Alcaraz 1/4
