  The 22-year-old Serb cruised through his first service game of the second set, broke his opponent’s service in the second game and held for 3-0 lead. At 3-1 Djokovic handed Monfils his first break point of the match. No.15 seed used the opportunity, broke back and then leveled up with a solid service game. Nole was broken once again in the eleventh game and the Frenchman closed the set 7-5 to level the match.
  Novak held to 15 at the beginning of the third set. He earned three break points in the second game, and converted the third chance winning a 43 shot rally. Monfils broke back immediately, but Djokovic broke again and held for 4-1 lead. The Frenchman fought back breaking Nole’s service in the seventh game. The set went to a tie-breaker, Nole won it 7-3 to clinch his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title in his fifth final this season.
