Following a 64, 64 loss to rival Roger Federer in the Shanghai semifinals, 2-time champion Novak Djokovic praised the Swiss legend.
“I think I did not play too bad,” said Djokovic who falls to 17-19 against Federer, 2-3 this year. “It’s just that he played everything he wanted to play. He played the perfect match. I think he’s going to tell you how he felt, but that’s how I felt he played. He played an amazing match.”
Djokovic had won 28 straight matches in China since losing to Federer in the 2010 Shanghai semifinals.
Djokovic, who is now in a serious fight for the No. 1 ranking, will rejoin Federer in
Basel a week from Monday Paris at the end of the month. He and his wife are expecting the birth of their first child sometime late this month/early November.
