The Serbian experienced a frightening incident throughout the game. During the 5-2 changeover, Djokovic strained his left leg and was compelled to leave the field for a medical break. However, the 91-time tour-level champion continued to compete and now leads Medvedev 9-4 in their head-to-head matchup. Djokovic will next face Sebastian Korda in the finals.
