Pleasure to watch this matchup. Unreal effort/execution from Novak. He was the better player on the day. What a match …

One of the very best matches I’ve seen. Well done to Novak and Rafa. Brilliant tennis.
Massive props to Nole after digging himself out of a 0/5 hole in that 1st set.
Djokovic vs Tsitsipas for the 2021 RG title 💪
Phenomenal performance from @DjokerNole . Showing us why he is no.1 What a match from 2 of the greats of the game.
