"I'm trying to enjoy the efficiency of my serve," said Djokovic, who had three aces in one game in the first set. "I'm not very well known around the tour for big serving. But so far in this tournament, and also in Beijing, it has been working very well for me. It has been giving me a lot of free points, a lot of confidence into the matches."
