Jeremy Chardy is wowed by the performance of world No. 1 Novak Djokovic during the Frenchman’s 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 third-round loss to the Serb. Djokovic won 52 of his 58 service points, hit 38 winners and committed only three unforced errors.

“Against him, I do not have time to play,” Chardy told the French press. “He was stronger than me everywhere. I had no solution. I was a little lost. At one point I even asked how he guessed where I was going to play. I never felt able to control the game. He hurt me on both my strengths, serve and forehand.”
