Novak Djokovic returned to the court with a victory after six months of break. He won against Dominic Thiem with 6:1, 6:4, at the exhibition tournament Kooyong in Melbourne, a warmup for Australian Open.
Nole was furious in the first set, where he allowed only one gem to the Australian and he won with 6:1. Novak was certain from the baseline, he had a good serve and he had only three unforced errors, unlike Thiem who often hit the ball outside of the court or he hit the net.
A more serious fight was seen in the second set where Djokovic showed a bit more. He was more aggressive and better in key moments of the match. He hit some difficult shots and parallels, which were an unsolvable enigma for Thiem, who had mistakes again.
Novak had a few excellent returns in the last gem of the match, and he reached the match ball which he used to force Thiem into a new mistake.
However, he had some kind of a band on his right hand in a form of a "sleeve", so we hope that it is just for precaution.
