i really would like to know if seles serve at 6:5 in the first set tiebreak was really out. it looked like an ace, but was called out. maybe the most biggest line mistake in the history of women tennis.
both djokovic and tsitsipas played their best tennis in the first set, but djokovic then had a very bad service game when serving for the first set, and then was awful in the second set. but he started very well against a very well playing opponent.
djokovic is only favourite at wimbledon, if he stays healthy. at the other slams he is joint favourite with at least 2 or 3 or even 4 players. and at least one is more favourite than him, like mefvefev at ao and uo and nadal at the french.
usually the one who finishes first in the live year ranking is the one who is year end number 1. right now novak only has a 990 points advantage over daniil in the champiions race, so daniil has very good chances to be year end number 1.
