“I’m not satisfied with myself. But everyone should praise Sinner because he played better than me in every aspect.
To be honest, I haven’t really played my best throughout this tournament. Besides the match against Mannarino in round 4, I was not at my best in most of the remaining matches.
However, the recent semi-final match was still a great competition. I always have the highest expectations for myself, but that doesn’t mean it will happen today,” Djokovic added.
According to the Serbian player, Sinner has improved a lot. The Italian always serves very strongly from the forehand and backhand angles.
Not only that, Sinner also knows how to maintain a fast pace of play. He gradually became calmer after receiving training from Darren Cahill – who once worked with Djokovic.
