"I didn't play my best tennis after the Australian Open, so I was trying to regain momentum. I played some of my best tennis here."
On his opponent he added: "I had to step up, Stefanos is very talented. He beat Rafa yesterday, he had a late night, and he was not so dynamic in his movement, and it was probably due to his long struggle. "
Tsitsipas, who saved three match points, said about Djokovic: "It inspires what you do, simply amazing. You deserve it.
"You had a good week. It was also a great one for me, with good memories and good crowd."
If Djokovic continues to win the French Open next month, he will hold all four Grand Slam titles.
