“These kind of big matches obviously take the best out of players,” Novak shared after losing the match. “And of course it’s a huge challenge. I tried to do my best. My best wasn’t as the best against him in Rome a couple weeks ago … He was a better player in the crucial moments. Of course it’s disappointing for me, but life goes on.”
