"Nadal lost the semi-final at #rolandgarros2021? It's a joke surely.. oh it is a Djoke," tweeted former India batsman Wasim Jaffer.
India wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik called Djokovic's win a great example of "Not giving up" and he suggested his followers to watch the game. "If anyone ever wants to know what “NOT GIVING UP” in sport means, plz switch on tele and watch these two legends play.If you’ve slept in India already, please watch this match in replay, Highlights will never ever do justice to this quality of tennis," Karthik tweeted.
R Ashwin and Washington Sundar also posted tweets for the epic encounter. Djokovic will now lock horns against Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas in the finals.
