The win did not come easy for Djokovic. The first set took 70 long minutes and Berrettini blundered by hitting balls into the net and sending shots long and wide. The first set was tied at 6-6 and there was a tiebreak to decide the winner.
The second set got out of hand for Berrettini and so did the third. However, in the fourth set, he made Djokovic work for every single point before he won the set and the match.

The calendar Grand Slam which has been won only once is now within Djokovic’s reach. He also stands a chance to win the Golden Slam which is all four Grand Slams plus an Olympic gold medal in one calendar year.
