Novak Djokovic is on top of the world

He is not yet number 1 but for 2011, he might as well be.  Novak Djokovic remains undefeated for 20 straight matches dating back to his wins in the Davis Cup last December, which helped his country, Serbia bag the Davis Cup trophy.

Novak Djokovic is currently the reigning Australian Open Champion defeating Roger Federer in the semi-finals and Andy Muraay in the finals, both in straight sets.  He met Roger Federer again in Dubai, beating him in straight sets.

Last week, the first ATP 1000 event was contested in Indian Wells.  The number 2 spot on the ATP rankings was on the line.  Roger Federer was able to play well enough to be able to defend his ranking, going into the semis without dropping a set.  Djokovic was not to be outdone.  He came into the semis also with a flawless set record, dropping only 6 games en route, the lowest ever going into the semis of an ATP 1000 tournament.  Nole came out triumphant in the end winning in 3 sets (6-3, 3-6, 6-2) and regaining the number 2 spot.  Next in line is Rafael Nadal.

There was only 2 players ever who were able to beat Federer and Nadal successively in a tournament on 2 occasions – David Nalbandian and Nikolay Davydenko.  Novak joins them proudly after beating Nadal in 3 sets (4-6, 6-3, 6-2).  Nadal now sees Djokovic as a major contender for the year-end number 1.

And recently, on top of those achievements, Djokovic still has more to offer, taking his game to new heights, literally.  For an advertisement for HEAD tennis rackets, Djokovic played tennis on the wings of an airplane!

He literally is on top of the world and very possibly, will be on top of the ATP rankings soon.  Good luck Nole!  Continue with your aggressive game!
