ATP Finals: Novak Djokovic dominates John Isner in the opening match


Novak Djokovic was at best on Monday, when John Isner was at the US Open at the opening race of the ATP finals and absolutely beat the American giant 6-4, 6-3.

He recently played in London on the O2 Arena, which was hosted by home-based hero Andy Murray, who brought an end to his unpleasant preoccupation with the male game.

Last year, he missed the tournament with a broken elbow, but his return to the stage was spectacular.

Djokovic reached the same percentage of Roger Federer's six titles in the ATP finals and, after what he did against Isner, maybe on the way to the shoot.

Already assured that the year will be the first place after the victory of Wimbledon and US Open, Djokovic is a huge favorite, who in June completed an amazing repetition from the 22nd world title with another title in the London ports.

He will now set his sights on Germany Alexander Zverev In the second round of the race, after an exciting twelve-year age, Croatia's Marin Cilic 7-6 (5), 7-6 (1) defeated in the group Gustavo Kuerten last week.

Isner, 33 of the oldest for the first time on eight men, since Andres Gimeno's debut 35 years old in 1972, was not subjected, but never managed to lay the glove at the 73-minute game.

In the first set, Djokovic lost only four points at his service, but Isner was the most worrying way his opponent managed to read his high-quality delivery and returned back to the starting point with monotonous regularity.

"He is the best returnee with whom I have ever met," said Isner. "Sometimes you have to hope it's a little off. Unfortunately, I do not think that was the case tonight.

If he failed to convert points at Isner's two service games, Djokovic did not make a mistake when another opportunity came, returning the return to win and lead 4-2.

Isner left the set of points for 3-5 and 3 consecutive times in order to stay in the set, but Djokovic calmly held back to take advantage of the opener.

The script was on the wall for Isner, when Djokovic crashed in a second set at 3: 3, and the Serbian side allowed him his approval. Two games later, Djokovic sealed the win with the winner on the back.
