"I work every day to play this tennis".

Asked about his workload, Djokovic said: 'I wasn't the freshest, you know.

Netflix announced the Stranger Things 3 release date on New Year's Eve in a new teaser trailer and date announcement. It shows a local New Year's broadcast from 1985 slowly turning "upside down" as the familiar theme music kicks in.

The Serb cruised through the opening set before Bautista Agut dragged the contest into a decider by edging the tiebreak in the second set.

"I wanted to give everything I had in the match and fight until the last point", Bautista Agut said. Novak was up and it was tough. I care playing with him more than with anybody else, so that's why it took a lot out of me emotionally. "He is one of the greatest legends of all time and we want to see him play". "I did everything well today".

The first win came in October 2016 at the Shanghai Masters when Djokovic was also No 1 at that stage.

"I will remember this match all my life", he said after the 3-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-4 win.

Djokovic was in cruise control in the first set, winning 6-3, and took an early break in the second.

He lost his first service game and never recovered the break as Basilashvili, the number five seed, powered by a blistering forehand took the first set. As often happens, Djokovic started slowly but surely to find his groove and after breaking back (4-2), he consolidates (4-3) and he had even a ball to make it even to 4-all.

Bautista Agut awaits the victor of the match between, another player who has been making a comeback- Tomas Berdych and the Italian Marco Cecchinato.
