Remember way back at the Australian Open in January when Novak Djokovic took a lot of “heat” (pun intended) for retiring to Andy Roddick in the quarters? People started to question Djokovic’s desire and conditioning and if he really wanted to stay among the elite in the game.
Well something has clicked in now because Djokovic won his second title in a row and fifth of the year after defeating an inspired Gael Monfils 6-2, 5-7, 7-6 (3) at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris.
With all the talk of Rafael Nadal and briefly Andy Murray challenging Roger Federer for the top spot, it’s safe to say 2010 could be the year for the “falcon” to rise even higher.
What do you think?
