Ryan Harrison: Novak Djokovic's serve is overlooked, it's very good

American tennis star Ryan Harrison was impressed with world No. 1 Novak Djokovic's Paris Masters final serving display. The Serb entered the final determined not to pick up back-to-back runner-up finishes at Bercy and he managed to do that as he saw off rising Canadian star Denis Shapovalov 6-3 6-4.

The 32-year-old won 81 percent of his first serve, 82 percent of his second serve points and saved the lone break point the 20-year-old Canadian in the final. Djokovic, who now has five Paris titles in his collection, was consistent on his serve throughout the whole week as he didn't drop a single set in five matches played at Bercy.

"Novak’s serve is so overlooked because of his baseline strength. His serve is very good," Harrison wrote on Twitter. "His accuracy on his first serve is really strong. His 2nd serve has a lot more kick and bounce than most people realize.

Makes it tough to get a clean aggressive hit on it. All in all, even though he doesn’t hit as many aces as others, he starts almost every point on offense."
