Novak Djokovic defeated Lucas Pouille in straight sets.
The world No. 1 said: "It was definitely one of the best matches I’ve played this year. Best one of this week [and it] came at the right time. I thought Lucas was playing really well the first couple of matches in this tournament.
I saw him play a couple of days ago against Nishioka and he was playing really well. I took away the time from him."
