First set stats:
Novak Djokovic: 7 winners, 3 unforced errors.
First set: Novak Djokovic 6-4 Milos Raonic: It took multiple break points across four of Raonic’s five service games and one almighty fight from the Canadian at the death, but Djokovic finally nabs the first set. Raonic saved the first set point with an unreturned serve, he saved the second set point with a bold, impressive inside out forehand winner and he saved the third set point with a 135 mph.
On the fourth set point, Raonic missed a first serve and Djokovic ground him down with deep, early strokes, until a Raonic forehand finally flew wide. Phew.
