    Points won by each set: | 29-25, 35-31, 41-40 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    29 % Djokovic – 33 of 112
    24 % Sinner – 22 of 90

    The same type of rackets (Head Speed MP), similar game-style, but huge difference in experience – 23 Slam titles for Djokovic [2] while Sinner [8] played his *first major semifinal (failed on four previous quarterfinal attempts). The 14 years younger Sinner won the toss and elected to receive (the entire semifinal played indoors). He created a break point in the opening game, but trailed 0:3 and never felt comfortably to the end in terms of the scoreline. It was pretty balanced match optically, but in almost all crucial moments, Djokovic was more patient from the back of the court. It was the most substantial at *4:5 (15/40) in the 3rd set. On both set points Sinner had the ball in play, but played it wide on the fourth stroke on the rally (first off the backhand, then off the forehand). In the tie-break the Italian led 3:1, but committed a double fault and lost it 4/7. Djokovic’s record in tie-breaks this year is awesome (21-4), he has now won 13 in a row (career-best).

    Serve & volley: Djokovic 0, Sinner 2/4
