Smashing all doubts about the shoulder injury suffered in the previous two matches, Novak Djokovic saved all seven face-break points before ending the easy victory with 34 winner points and 31 self-defeating errors.

The number one seed takes advantage of the early game winning the ball to take the lead 3-1 with a volley winner. He went on to dissolve two chances in the seventh game and closed the first set of wins without losing a serve in the last game.

Set two saw Serbian tennis player make more mistakes than his winner won (11 errors and 7 points) but still safe. Missed two consecutive break-points in the third game but at the same opportunity Djokovic was successful. He led 3-2 after the opponent struck the ball with his forehand.
