Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer disagree over length of tennis matches

"It's nice to have played a match so that my last match was not the Anderson match. you've kind of turned the page", the Swiss said. I think center court plays much faster than the outside courts, so you don't have much time.

"I would probably add more best-of-five-set matches in finals", said the world No.2 after his Cincinnati Masters second-round win over Peter Gojowczyk. "But the most important [thing] is to keep working, keep doing the right thing, keep pushing in matches, keep winning matches like today".

"This year has been tough, " Kyrgios said. Although I didn't feel great, I managed to get through them.

"I tried to do my best in the third set and then until the end I played very aggressive and I'm very pleased with that".

Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic survived a stiff test, needing nine match points to outlast Steve Johnson of the United States 6-4, 7-6 (7/4).

Peter Gojowczyk of Germany defeated Joao Sousa 2-6, 6-4, 7-5 and will next line up against seven-time victor Roger Federer, at second the highest seed in the field after the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal.
