MELBOURNE – From a single shot on Sunday arrives an insight into the exceptional athlete. It’s just past 9pm in Melbourne and a cool night is turning testy. It’s the second set, Novak Djokovic is serving at 4-5 and briefly flirting with what he rarely does. Error.
A backhand error. A forehand error. Another backhand one. Suddenly it’s 30-40. Set point for Stefanos Tsitsipas.
