"Kyle played a fantastic first set," added Djokovic. "He didn't do much wrong, he served very well and was aggressive from the back of the court. Usually his forehand is a weapon, but his backhand, especially in the first set, was very strong, very solid."
"My team was fantastic during the whole race. Today I felt very good, my legs were really good, until the attack I could ride easily. Also, I was very motivated. Many people supported me along the roads, and I want to thank everyone," Valter said after the race.
Garcia looked untouchable in the first set and for much of the second, blasting 30 winners and breaking Pliskova's serve three times en route to a 6-1, 7-6 (2) victory.
The hosts added their third goal when Daniel Sampaio latched onto Marco Antonio's pass to slot home in stoppage time.
