Stanislas Wawrinka matched up with Novak Djokovic today. Each point was perfectly crafted for this two-set affair. We would see Djokovic summon those extra reserves to pull back even each time it looked like Wawrinka was gathering steam.
Eventually, Djokovic’s persistent aerial attack may have worn down Wawrinka by the time the second set came around.
In any case, the second to last point of the first set is where we find the final nudge up to give the advantage in favor of Djokovic.
To bring you back to the first set, the final points were awe-inspiring, as Djokovic angled off a short inside-out forehand in the ad court to take the advantage.
Followed by the end point was a deftly maneuvered drop shot in the deuce court, culminating this neatly packaged first set—advantage Novak 6-4.
Through the match Djokovic approached the net several times, finishing off 8 of 13 winners from the fore court. Points often ended with swift and angled ground strokes.
Whether it was down the line or behind his opponent, Djokovic ran out to a quick 5-0 lead in the second set. Wawrinka managed to earn a game, but by the close the match ended 6-4, 6-1.
The time of the match was five minutes under an hour. Djokovic was perfect on break points saved, while Wawrinka was 6 for 9, ultimately resulting in three breaks of serve which primarily defined the match.
