Djokovic had endured a difficult year at the Slams. His deportation from Australia over his coronavirus vaccination status was followed by a quarter-final loss to Nadal at the French Open. His refusal to get vaccinated will bar him from flying to the United States next month for the US Open as things stand. Djokovic could also miss the 2023 Australian Open as a consequence of having his visa cancelled in January. (Source: AFP)

Kyrgios was further unsettled when he demanded a fan be removed from the crowd for distracting him in his serve. Djokovic, with only two unforced errors, happily pounced for a two sets-to-one lead. (Source: AFP)
