Djokovic plays like a machine at Japan Open

TOKYO: World No.1 Novak Djokovic recently put on a stunning show of supremacy at the Japan Open with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Lucas Pouille of France to the awe of the crowd who thought he played with machine precision.

The Serb more than overwhelmed his opponent in the quarterfinal match, showering Pouille with a barrage of powerful, precision shots to deep, wide corners mixed with delicate drop shots, reported Rappler, citing a dispatch from Agence France Presse (AFP).

“I am not a machine. But I did play like one today,” the report quoted him as saying after their 50-minute contest.

“This was one of the best matches I played this year. Very, very pleased with the way I feel and played on the court,” said Djokovic, who will face either David Goffin of Belgium or Chung Hyeon of South Korea in the semifinals.

“I am looking forward to another battle tomorrow, hopefully I will be able to keep up with this quality of tennis.”

The latest victory provided further evidence of his swift recovery from a left shoulder injury that caused him to pull out of the US Open.

The Japan Open is the first competition for Djokovic since the incident.

He nailed 8 aces and never committed double fault while collecting points on 82% of his successful first serves.

After cruising through the 1st set, Djokovic stepped up his tennis and began the 2nd set by taking 4 games straight.

Pouille fought back to keep the 5th game and in the 6th game, he collected his only break of the match.

But Djokovic denied any other attempt by the French challenger, who was able to survive only 1 of 7 break points.
