On how he prepared for the match against Grigor Dimitrov, the world No.
1 Novak Djokovic said: "I try to focus on my game mostly and hoping I can start the way I started yesterday against Tsitsipas, which wasn't the case. You know, I was serving well but wasn't managing to -- I was making mistakes from back of the court in the beginning of the first set.
But I think serve got me out of trouble in some moments. I think couple of games he had 15-30. His forehand has always been his weapon. And even though he has improved backhand, his forehand is still the better shot. But you're right. He has improved backhand and can hit flat, spin, and slice."
