Djokovic* 7-6 (3), 6-5, 6-5 Shapovalov (*denotes next server)
Shapovalov double-faults to open his latest service game. He then misdirects a forehand wide for 0-30. But incredibly, he smashes his way to 15-30, then crushes one of the shots of the match down the line, with total precision, to take it back to 30-30.
Next up – itâ€™s a double fault – and Djokovic had another break point. Shapovalov, again, is not taking a backward step and he powers an unreturnable forehand to Djokovicâ€™s forehand side. Then another error hands Djokovic a break point – Shapovalov hits long – and Djokovicâ€™s eyes bulge as he roars at his team up in the stand.
Djokovic will serve for the match, and a place in his 30th grand slam final.
