Novak Djokovic living his own version of Groundhog Day

Novak Djokovic is playing at a different level. That much we all know. But what really separates him from the rest of the field is his ability to mentally filter out the past from the present.

Matt Wilansky Tennis editor 

Marcus Willis, a straight-sets loser against Roger Federer, on whether this was the best day of his life: "It's a good question. I don't know. I lost a tennis match today. Part of me now, rightly or wrongly, is feeling frustrated because I can play better than that. But I can't expect it to be easy. He's a level above me. He's class. Naturally I'm disappointed to lose. Monday, yeah, was just ridiculous. But so was today in other ways."
