To be sure, it was a twofold blame from Zverev that gave Djokovic the principal set and an aggregate of 33 unforced mistakes that added to the 21-year-old’s ruin.
Zverev missed two in the 9th round of the principal set, and it was this set in which either player formed a break point.
Djokovic on Radwanska retirement: ‘That’s a surprise to me, to be honest. I didn’t see that coming. I wish her the best in all her future endeavours. I remember her as one of the smartest women’s tennis players I have seen. She anticipated so well the play of her opponents.’

Djokovic plays Cilic in his last round-robin coordinate on Friday, while Zverev goes up against Isner.
If John Isner beats Marin Cilic later on Wednesday, Djokovic will achieve the last four.
