This final was expected with high interest in the World of Tennis. It was promising to become a real clash of titans, however we saw only Djokovic’s brilliant performance. Here is what both players said after the match:
“Was unbelievable the way that he played, no doubt about that. But at the same time is true that physically I was not able. Five months without competing, having that big challenge in front of me, I needed something else. ” explained Nadal.
“In semi-finals and finals, I think I made 15 unforced errors in total in two matches. It’s quite pleasantly surprising to myself, as well. Under the circumstances, it was truly a perfect match.” said the champion. “It ranks right at the top” added Djokovic.
