But in the third set, Djokovic lost his cool. Trying to break the Spaniard’s serve, he was frustrated in the opening game at deuce, losing a point and hurling his racket into the stands, where no-one was sitting. He avoided a warning, but after losing serve in the next game, the blood was starting to boil. In the third, the equipment got a battering again with a violent smash near the net. This time, he was warned by the chair umpire, but his opponent thought he should have been docked a point.
Carreno Busta, a Davis Cup winner, did not let what was going on affect him, calmly negotiating the rest of the match and serving out to secure a place on the podium.
