Djokovic has proven he is ‘the real’ number 1


November 14, 2012 by Tejmgas

For many people, this year’s ATP World Tour Final’s was a lot more than another match between Federer and Djokovic. It was precision vs power, the master vs the apprentice and for some, the past vs the present.

Take nothing away from Federer, he has proved his own critics wrong by winning numerous ATP Tour titles and Grand Slams even at his ripe old age but after this match, I doubt many can argue he is still the best male player out there. I still believe he can carry on for a few more years but I doubt he will reach the dizzying heights he did back in the early 2000’s.

He may well get his revenge but for now, the spotlight is on Djokovic.

He has proven all his haters wrong by justifying his place at the top of the rankings, a place many thought he didn’t deserve to be. Even with the very pro-Federer crowd, Djokovic was able to produce one of his best matches of his career, not dropping a set on a way to a 7-6 7-5 victory.

These were very closely fought sets but the grit and determination Djokovic showed separated him from his opponent. He fought hard in all the long rallies and was able to return some seemingly unplayable shots, all without breaking a sweat.

With Nadal still injured and Murray improving but still not good enough, it looks like Djokovic will be staying at number 1 for a long time to come.

A place where he deserves to be.
