Congrats to the Djoker. He was just too good in that last set winning 80% of points behind his own serve. JCF's only chance was in that 6th game when he went 0-15 up and then missed two easy shots after making two good returns.
Other than that it was again a bit disappointing. These two can produce much higher quality than that from the back of the court but neither of them found their range. The biggest difference today was the serve and Djokovic held all of his service games in the 1st and 3rd sets without facing any BPs. Whereas JCF was almost always under pressure.
It will be interesting to see how much these last two matches took out of Djokovic. I think he'll have to win his next match quite quickly before fatigue sets in.
I second what you said.
Nole just dominated his service games (except in the second set), and it's a pity that the final set seemed to have panned out according to his plan. JC could've made it a bit closer had it not been for some easy errors he made.
But it was good to see JC fighting till the end, and his fending off all those BPs in the first game of the second set was a great drama. I wish him better luck in Basel.
