World No3 Djokovic defeated World No1 Alcaraz 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1. The Spanish tennis player started to feel cramps in his leg after the second set. Alcaraz was struggling to play after his injury limited his style of play. Novak Djokovic took advantage and won the third and fourth set comfortably.

“He’s showed so much maturity in the last couple of years. He appeared on the scene, just a few years ago, winning his first title, and only a year later he wins his first Grand Slam, and he becomes No. 1. I have tremendous respect for that, and he’s got a great coach, a great team of people around him. The career will be his. His career will be very successful if he manages obviously to keep healthy because the game is there,” Djokovic added.
