Score, report, and key facts
The set was even with both players refusing to concede anything to the opposition. Eventually, the only discrepancy was one break that Djokovic conquered in the 10th game (6-4).
There was not much difference between the 2 players in this set with the exception of 1 break that Djokovic conquered in the 4th game (3-1) before winning the set (5-3).
Nothing could divide these 2 players in this set and therefore the pair went to fight for it in the breaker. Finally, Novak won the breaker at 1.
At the end of the match, Djokovic scored 125 points vs. Raonic’s 104 points.
The Serbian served extremely well to win 86% of the points (60/70) behind his first serve. Nevertheless he won only 48% points (15/31) on his second serve. Djokovic won this match even if he wasn’t that great in converting his break points since he converted only 13% (2/16). On the other side, Raonic wasn’t able to conquer any break point (0/2). That was one of the key issues for his defeat.
After this match, the head to head between Djokovic and Raonic is 10-0 for Novak.
