Novak Djokovic wins the second set against Nick Kyrgios
In the 9th game of the second set with Novak serving, Kyrgios was looking to win the break back after having been broken twice in the set. With Kyrgios winning the first point in the game, a long rally ensued between the two players with Novak looking almost the winner of the point as he had Nick running corners from baseline.
Nick fired a backhand which was softly picked by Djokovic with a drop shot to which Nick had to rush towards the net. Kyrgios reached the ball and hit it wide across the court which saw Djokovic tumbling down but unable to win the point. While the game saw Nick get 4 breakpoints, he was unable to make use of it and saw Djokovic close the set to ensure the match goes for at least 4 sets.
