Novak Djokovic almost became the butt of all jokes for the holiday weekend. However, he rallied to beat Rafael Nadal 3 sets to 1 after Nadal showed some resistance in the third set by dominating Djokovic winning 6 games to 1. Djokovic is now 48-1 in 2011 and has beaten Nadal 5 times this year. We’ve seen this year the William sisters no play up to their reputation, Roger Federer get bounced early and now Nadal is starting to come back to the pack. And with Novak getting his swag on like a 1987 Eric B & Rakim song let’s see how long he can hold on to his reign on the number 1 spot. So let’s see if he can stay paid in full, but if I was him I would tell the rest of the competition to follow the leader.
