Serena Romps; Djokovic v Haas Headlines Massive Monday at Wimbledon

“It was a fantastic match,” Djokovic said. “I felt great from the start ’til the end. I had that super focus and tried to be out there every point and not allow him to come back in the match or to have any chances. I saw the stats that I won 100 percent of first serves and I served over 80 percent of serves in in the whole match. That was incredible for me. I enjoyed every moment of it, especially at the end…This kind of performance came in the right time for me.”

It’s all the ATP’s fault. I’m going to keep blaming them.”
