    DJOKOVIC WINS THE FIRST SET 6-3!

    Djokovic sprays a backhand down the line well long on the first of his three set point opportunities.

    And he then misses another, this time cross-court, under little pressure…

    The Serb then misses an inside-in forehand to take Tsitsipas to deuce!

    Tsitsipas is convinced that Djokovic missed a ball mid-point that went unnoticed, but his later error gifts Djokovic a fourth set point.

    Which he this time dispatches as the Greek misses a return of serve!

    Djokovic takes the first set in 41 minutes.

    Djokovic began the game with another gorgeous drop shot, but Tsitsipas came roaring back to hold comfortably to 15.

    Novak will now attempt to serve out the first set…

    NOVAK DJOKOVIC 5-2 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS*

    Tsitsipas feigns a racquet smash after spraying an unforced error long, before thinking better of it.

    His frustration won't be helped by Djokovic's subsequent forehand winner to seal a tight game.

    *NOVAK DJOKOVIC 4-2 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS

    Tsitsipas turns up the volume on his forehands… but Djokovic's defence defies belief! Eventually denying the Greek with an incredible drop volley of his own.

    *NOVAK DJOKOVIC 4-2 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS

    BREAK POINT!

    Tsitsipas with a cheap unforced error at 15-30 with Djokovic under a little pressure.

    And the Greek then unleashes a scream into the Parisian sky as he misses a good look on the forehand to gift Djokovic game point.

    The Serb then drops in an unforced error of his own, giving Tsitsipas a glimmer of hope at deuce.

    And Tsitsipas then sets up a first break point opportunity since the opening game of the match with a delightful drop volley.

    *NOVAK DJOKOVIC 4-2 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS

    Djokovic wins one of the points of the tournament!

    The pair play cat and mouse with lobs, drop shots and clever pick-ups.

    Just as Tsitipas looked as if he'd won it, he nets a forehand pass and Djokovic takes the point for 15-0.

    That point deserved a winner!

    Rafa's coach Carlos Moya has also returned to Chatrier, clearly getting some homework done ahead of the final.

    Tsitsipas has remained composed and seals another comfortably hold to 15 with a confident forehand winner off a short ball.

    NOVAK DJOKOVIC 4-1 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS*

    Tsitsipas lashes a forehand return long and Djokovic comfortably holds to 15.

    The Serb is taking everything thrown at him in his stride so far.

    Tsitsipas admitted after his last match that he used to skip school to watch Roland Garros as a kid.

    And I'm sure he's learned a few things along the way that can get him back into this match.

  • Etienne Fermie

    *NOVAK DJOKOVIC 3-1 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS

    Tsitsipas is on the board, sealing the game with a stunning forehand cross-court winner.

    Djokovic utilised the drop shot for the first time in that game, a ploy he turned to 21 times in his first round match earlier in the tournament.

    NOVAK DJOKOVIC 3-0 STEFANOS TSITSIPAS*

    Having gone 0-40 down in a flash, Djokovic is now looking imperious, winning ten of the last 11 points to race to a 3-0 lead.

    Errors are spraying off Tsitsipas' racquet, as he aims to disrupt Djokovic with an aggressive game plan.

    The Serb, however, has seen it all in his storied career.

    Tsitsipas will have to cut down on those unforced errors…
