Novak Djokovic has become the AO champion 2008 and it was a fitting finale to what has been a great tournament. Having lost the first set the maturity and strength of character that he displayed to win the next 3 sets in a tremendously fought match goes to show that he is someone who can challenge Federer’s supremacy if not dethrone him which is too early to say.
I just had to write this post to get the whole Nole fever out of my system and get on with EPL which for the last fortnight or so has taken a backseat. His win today is an inspiration because he comes from a war torn country like Serbia and has yet managed to not only be a champion on court but also a sweetheart off it. Special mention to Tsonga who is absolutely adorable with that million dollar smile. It was a great contest and no one walked off feeling like a loser which is so rare in sports.
