Novak Djokovic triumphs under the roof of ATP Paris Rolex Masters, in Paris-Bercy, for the sixth time in his career. He does it thanks to an extraordinary victory against Daniil Medvedev, who even gives the feeling of having more at the start of third. Djokovic off Nadal, obviously stopped at an altitude of thirty-six, in the category thanks to a very rocky 4-6 6-3 6-3.
Probably seasoned only by a bugbear in the finish. In Turin, as usual, the man to beat will always be the same: Nole. Djokovic starts badly. More than anything else he struggles to find the supports and angles. Even if he immediately recovers the break from behind (thanks to a double fault at 0-40) and faces 30-40 in the sixth game. The Serbian champion, who appears with a certain regularity near the net, condenses however the vast majority of errors in the sixth game.
Djokovic – reluctant to any result contrary to victory – arms himself with patience, lands the decisive shove in the fifth game and with an 8-0 half-ball he spikes on 4-2. Medvedev struggles to hide his tiredness and anger. He recovers, yes, one of the two disadvantaged breaks in the final rush, but he doesn’t give himself the chance to put pressure in the tenth game.
