Novak Djokovic made history in the open area and tied the great Roy Emerson with 6 Australian open Championship Title!
6 out of 6 there aren’t too many athletes that can do that be it a team game or 1 on 1. To me Novak Djokovic is the Michael Jordan of Tennis, not because he is also 6 out 6 but the hard work and dedication that his guy gave is like that of a Michael Jordan. Jordan had to overcome Bird, Magic, Dr. J, Hakeem etc. Novak on the other hand needed to prove that he is up there with Federer, Nadal, Sampras, Agassi, etc.
Djokovic beat Andy Murray the current world #2 rank in straight sets. 6-1, 7-5, 7-6. It wasn’t easy but many people believe that Djokovic played a better game against Federer. Djokovic only had 7 ace’s as suppose to Andy’s 12. Murray also had 40 winners and Novak only had 31. But the Serb was good enough on crucial moments to get his 11th Grandslam titles. Tied with the great Rod Laver and Bjorn Borg. 3 Titles more to catch nadal and 6 titles away to tie Federer who might win another 1 if he doesnt retire in the next 2 years.
The Grandslam that eluded Novak is Roland Garros French open. We will find out this June.
The Man of Steel in tennis right now, the best of all time maybe within reach but just early this month, Novak has been the #1 player for 171 weeks and counting, Yes that’s right he has surpassed the great John McEnroe on the all time list moving in to #5 at the moment and he has no plans of stopping after beating Kei Nishikori 7 hours ago in the ATP Barclay’s ATP World Tour Finals 6-1 6-1.
Novak’s greatest achievement as he mentioned is getting married and having
a kid, that’s his biggest milestone.
