Novak Djokovic reveals key moment that made him lose to Marin Cilic

Novak Djokovic believes that a certain moment was the key for his loss against Marin Cilic at Queen's. In the post-match press conference, Djokovic said: 'I was one point away two times (once, in truth) today to win the match, so obviously disappointed not to be able to win it, because this was, you know, big occasion for me playing finals against Cilic, who is obviously one of the best players in the world.

I thought I have built up the momentum quite well throughout the week.' 'Played great. It wasn't to be, unfortunately. 4-1 up in the tiebreak, second, double fault 4-3 up. Yeah, I got a little bit tight there.

Obviously he used it. He served well when he needed to. Congratulations to him, but I can definitely take a lot of positives out of this week. I feel like beating (Grigor) Dimitrov, one of the top players, in straight sets, all straight sets till today, and as I said, you know, I had couple match points to end it up in straight sets today, as well, against Cilic, but just the match turned around.

He had a great comeback. Third set, again, it was very close. But all in all, I think that the level of my tennis has been as good as it has been the last 12 months.' ALSO READ: Milos Raonic explains why he is different from Roger Federer .
