Move Over Nadal & Federer

For the past five years or so, when you mention Mens’ Tennis two names come to mind – Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

But now a third man has inserted himself into this rivalry. Today, Novak Djokovic beat Nadal in four sets to win his first Wimbledon singles championship. Djokovic has also supplanted Nadal for the number one ranking by the Association of Tennis Professionals. And why not? Djokovic has defeated Nadal five times in one on one match ups in 2011, including Wimbledon.

Although Federer did defeat Djokovic during the French Open semi-finals, he defeated Federer thrice previously in 2011. In fact, Djokovic’s loss to Federer represents his only loss of the year. He had won his previous 43 matches going back to the 2010 Davis Cup.

Apparently much of Djokovic’s success is being attributed to him taking gluten out of his diet after discovering he was allergic to it.

Whatever the reason for Djokovic’s emergence, this golden age of mens’ tennis now shines that much brighter.
