Djokovic only secured his defeat of the Croatian late in the final set, breaking for 5-3 and finishing off the hard-fought victory in the next game. "It's tough, I'm very pleased to reach the final once more here," Djokovic said. "It will be a challenge for me to play another final here and try to win it." "It was a tough match, but I'm so glad to be in the final." Halep broke in the final game to move through as Sabalenka volleyed long on a second match point after 76 minutes.
