Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic were on the other side of the net.
Stosur and Zhang walked away with the trophy.
Then it was time for the men’s semi-final and Novak Djokovic was in charge from early on.
Lucas Pouille was up against it early on.
That’s how long it took the Serb to win the opening set.
Djokovic was even winning points when he hit the floor.
Pouille tried everything, but Djokovic always had an answer.
