If the first set was good the second was an absolute thriller! The Serb looked down and out initially and had a pretty lacklustre start to the set. It was in the seventh game that we saw our first break of serve, and really, the crowd had gone quiet and Djokovic as Djokovic kept struggling. The Serb however, did what he does best in the tenth game of the set, switching gears as he galvanized himself to break back Murray saving a championship point. The set went to the tie break where both players played some sensational tennis, Djokovic saved a further 4 championship points, but it was the Serb who came out on top in the end. Djokovic smashed 18 winners in that set.

That first set was filled with some high octane tennis from both players.

Djokovic's first serve percentage was remarkably low, as the Serb has been outstanding on serve all tournament long. Something that exemplified the incompetence on serve for the World No.2 was that he was broken a massive 4 times in the set.
