Novak Djokovic said: "It was great.
It's nice to be back. And also, it feels very good to play as well as I did today, considering I had only a little hit, warmup today on the center court before the match. Obviously playing on center court and other courts is quite different.
You know, I came in late to Shanghai because of the Japan tournament. You know, I knew that Denis is very dangerous player. You know, if he has time, if he's feeling the ball well, it can be a tough match."
