On the evening of October 11th, Beijing time, the 2020 French Open men’s singles decisive battle began. Nadal played even more bravely in the first two sets. He defeated his opponent 6-0 and 6-2.
The sixth inning of the third set was also a very exciting contest. Djokovic got a break point 40-30 and Djokovic put a small ball, but Nadal hurried to the net and played a high-quality replay small ball. Insufficient judgment caused him to return the ball out of bounds. Nadal successfully saved the break point. Nadal, who saved the break point, also punched himself to cheer himself up.
When the score came to a 40 tie again, then Nadal returned the ball out of bounds, Djokovic once again ushered in a break, Djokovic's wife Elena also applauded vigorously at this time. At the critical moment, Djokovic received the serve very well and immediately had the initiative. Seeing that the quality of the ball returned by Nadal was not high, he immediately used a backhand to hit a wonderful winning point and successfully broke serve. This is also Djokovic. The first successful break in the decisive battle.
You know, Nadal has already taken the lead in the third set to break serve and take a 3-2 lead, which means that Djokovic has had a last-ditch fight. After finally breaking serve, Djokovic did not reserve to celebrate, raised his arms and shouted, constantly roaring to the audience, and the coach of Djokovic also applauded for his disciples, satisfied that Djokovic finally found himself.
It is worth mentioning that despite the rapid improvement of the Djokovic status, Nadal still maintained the king style and did not allow the game to enter the Djokovic rhythm. In the ninth game of the third set, Djokovic led 15-0 in his serve. Then Djokovic served with good quality. Djokovic immediately mobilized his opponent from a large angle. Nadal was not afraid of the danger and suddenly changed his rhythm. For the small ball, Nadal rushed to the ball quickly, hitting neutral with a forehand, and got this point. Dejo saw that Nadal could turn passive into active even with such a ball, and he had to smile. I was amused by Nadal, but for Djokovic, this smile was a bit embarrassing and a bit helpless.
