What happened – Djokovic beat Muller in straight games

Djokovic broke at the start of the second set on his third break point of the game before another straightforward hold as Muller was thoroughly outclassed by the opponent.

However, world no. 76 finally got on the board, and his effort won applause from the crowd on the stands of Arthur Ashe.

The three-time champion in New York was impressed by Muller’s determination. However, it was just a matter of time before Nole broke back almost immediately before serving out the set.

Muller seemed to have found his way into the match and had three consecutive love holds as the third set went with serve until 3-3.

Djokovic stepped up the gears, and the writing was on the wall as he broke in the next game before a final decisive break for victory.
