“I can’t complain about the result, because reaching the semifinals is great. I beat three strong opponents and lost to Djokovic on two tiebreakers. I can’t beat players of this level every day. The tournament can be considered successful. To defeat Novak or Rafa, you need a little luck, but this time I didn’t have enough of it. Sometimes I just had no luck at breakpoints, sometimes I made atypical mistakes for myself.
In the second set I tried to take his serve for 15 minutes, and I succeeded. But he immediately spent an incredible game and won back. Djokovic is now playing at a high level. If he had played like this before, his results in previous tournaments would have been better. He goes to the peak of the form to “Roland Garros” – Thiem said ATP.
