– Djokovic and Nadal met for an Open Era record 47th time in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series, with the Serb taking a 24-23 lead – his first in the rivalry. He has claimed 11 consecutive sets since the 2014 Roland Garros final.

What They Said
Djokovic: “It did feel as close to perfection as it can get. Obviously from the first to the last point I managed to impose my own tactical approach and strategy and what I have kind of prepared myself for, and the conditions were played to my favour. I just came out on the court with the right intention, with the right intensity, and with a great deal of confidence, as well, that I carried from the last season playing against him in the last couple of matches as well winning in straight sets.”

Nadal: “The match is easy to analyze. I played against a player who did everything perfect. I don’t know anybody who played tennis like this ever. Since I know this sport I never saw somebody playing at this level. So I just congratulate him and that’s it. I know I can do a few things better, but the real thing is, with these conditions playing during the night and with the feeling of the ball here, it’s so difficult to have chances against him playing like this.”
