In the early morning of November 4, Beijing time, in a focus battle of ATP Paris Masters, Djokovic, the quadruple champion of the competition, thrilled Federer 7-6 (6)/5-7/7-6 (3) after a 3-hour and 02-minute battle, reaching the final three years later.
Switzerlands 100th Championship ambition has not yet been achieved, but fortunately, he has achieved his small goal set before the game - to perform well in front of the global fans and create some trouble for the return to the peak of the Deutsche Yorke.
By contrast, Djokovic, who is about to return to world No. 1 next week, will continue his 22 win in terror. His opponent in the Paris final was 22-year-old Russian starlet Kachalov, who swept Austrias top player Tim in two sets of the semi-final.
Three hours after the war, mars hit the earth.
This is a breathtaking competition. Its one of the best matches Ive ever played with him (Federer). In an interview with Sky Sports UK, Djokovic said excitedly, We are equal.
In the first game only, the two generation of heavenly kings, who had all the firepower, fought for 1 hours and 11 minutes. You know, Federer and Kam Ki-kuis 1/4 final the day before (6-4, 6-4) took only 1 hour and 19 minutes in total.
In this round, both sides fought for many times until they reached a draw. Eventually, in the absence of a break, Djokovic narrowly beat Federer 8-6 in the seventh.
The second set also continued the first set of glue situation, the two sides still did not find any breaking opportunities in the first 11 innings. Until the twelfth game, Federer seized the chance to take the lead in breaking the battle and won the victory with 7-5.
More than two hours later, two people who were 6 years old returned to the same running line. They hit seven again in the third set, but this time, Djokovic (7-3), who is younger and stronger, laughed to the end.
When you lose such a close match, you will always regret it. Failure is never fun, so I think I must face it now. Federer, who lost the ball, kept shaking his head on the court to conceal his regrets.
In postgame statistics, Federer was 54-31 ahead of Deutsche Yorke in winning points. He even boasted 17 ACEs, 11 more than his opponents. But in non-breakable mistakes, the Swiss were also more than their opponents (52-32).
Generally speaking, this is really a competition of needle tip to wheat. The scoring rate of one serve (67%) and one serve (74%) are identical, while Federers scoring rate of two serves (54%) is lower than Deyos (76%).
The total score of serve and return was also very close, with Federer scoring 49% and Djokovic scoring 51%. But the difference resulted in a completely different result. The Swiss can only say goodbye to Paris regretfully.
In fact, at his pre-semifinal press conference, the 37-year-old Federer had already put himself in the role of a challenger. Deyo has come back to his peak incredibly, and I hope to cause him some trouble.
Judging from the strength of paper, the low key of Swiss king is not without reason. Before the semi-final, the two played 46 times, Djokovic was in the ascendant with 24-22 losses, and maintained a full victory in the last three games.
The two mens recent match took place in the August Cincinnati masters competition. At that time, Deyo swept Federer in two sets in the final, won the championship for the first time, but also became the first golden master in history.
I hope I can play better than I did in Cincinnati because it was the worst game in my career, and I hardly had two. Federer said, and I have a lot of fans around the world. I have to perform well.
Facing the 21 consecutive wins of Germany, King Ferdinands performance did not disappoint the fans, but also created a lot of trouble for the former. Amid the cheers of the fans, the 37 year old veteran went to Vietnam.
In the face of this 37 year old veterans heroic display, de Yue is also sincerely admired. Especially in the last game of the second set, although they lost the ball, the Serbs still raised their thumbs because of the excellent return of the opponent.
I respect Federer very much. Whenever I play with him, he always inspires my greatest potential. In the central court after the match, Deyus usage language paid tribute to Federer.
It is worth mentioning that this final is not only Federer and Djokovics 47th meeting, but also their 10th consecutive meeting in the year-end Finals, ATP Masters and Grand Slam.
Will this be a farewell performance in Paris?
Paris masters is not the favorite event of Federer. In his career, the Swiss won the championship only in 2011, his first return in three years.
Originally, Federer came to Paris with the mentality of training for the finals of the year. Even after he won nine titles in his home city of Basel last week, no one was 100% sure that the Swiss would be able to compete.
But what is pleasantly surprised is that the 37 year old Swiss King appeared in Paris on Tuesday. In most cases, playing games is more useful to me than practicing alone, he explained.
I would rather play on the court than go back to training. Ive practiced enough this season, so I think it would be great if it helped me to play in London later on. Having just won the Basel championship and reached the top four in Paris, the 37-year-old Federer is clearly better than people think. Not to mention, his wrist injury in the grass season has just been restored. Even so, the French media are worried that Federers final match in Paris, that is, he may not play in the French Open next year, after all, it was three years ago that he last participated in these clay Grand Slam events. Im not sure if this is the last game. To this question, the answer of the tennis legend is still vague. As I said before, I will decide whether to join the French Open at the end of the year. Everything depends on my body and training conditions. The source of this article: news editor of surging News Network: Cao Li Wei _NS1806
