Novak Djokovic reacts to Agnieszka Radwanska's shocking retirement

When the ATP Finals match between Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev in London was going on, through social media channels Agnieszka Radwanska announced the end of her career. In press conference, Djokovic said: 'That's a surprise, to be honest.

I didn't see that coming. Well, she decided she doesn't want to compete at tennis, I wish her really all the best in any future endeavors that she has in her life. I remember her, and I think many of us in tennis, as one of the smartest women's tennis players that I have seen.

Great variety. Doesn't have any big weapons in the game, strong shots maybe like Serena with serve and forehand. She just anticipated so well the play of her opponents. She absorbed the speed of the ball so well. She had slice and drop shots in her game, which you don't see that very often.

That's why she was so successful.' Djokovic commented on his win over Alexander Zverev: 'I don't think it was breathtaking tennis, to be honest from both of us but a win is a win. I thought I played well midway through the second set when I started to swing through the ball.

I didn't serve that great and he obviously made a lot of unforced errors that allowed me to win probably easier than expected and especially in the second set, he wasn't close to his best. I didn't want to be 5-4 and a break down playing against Zverev's serve, it was really hard to read his serve, more difficult than Isner.

But in the second set it was more easy to read him.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
