Djokovic was already in the final round of the semi-final against Zverev: weak grips were followed by spectacular outbursts of rage.
The same rumba continued in sixth place Carreño Bustaa against. Djokovic’s Austrian credit brand rackets felt tough as the game didn’t slip in the final round as desired by the 20-time Grand Slam winner.
