51 - Wimbledon Men's Winner

Post no. 51 here:
The 2011 Wimbledon is over with the Men's Singles finishing yesterday, with the match-up we have been waiting for between Rafael Nadal (1) and Novak Djokavic (2). Djokavic has been in the form of his life having only lose once this year and after Wimbledon he will claim the world number 1 ranking.

Nadal was looking to win his 3rd Wimbledon title, and this was Djokavic's first Wimbledon title. People expected this to be a close match, but they were wrong. Djokavic won the first set 6-4 and took that form into the next set where he steam rolled Nadal to win 6-1.
Nadal and Djokavic 

Nadal didn't want to lose in straight sets and fought back to take the 3rd set 6-1, and things were starting to look up for him. Djokavic wanted the title more than Nadal and finished him off in the 4th set winning 6-3 and claiming his 1st Wimbledon title and his 2nd Grand Slam of the year.

Djokavic will look to the US Open to make it 3 from 4 this year, to cap off a wonderful year.

Joke of the Day:
Q. What are the wettest animals in the world?

  1. Post was awesome, but the joke was the best.

  2. I didn't think Djokovic could beat Nadal's experience and smart play. I was wrong about that!

  3. Interesting post, thank you!
    Have a nice day.

  4. lol the joke was so lame it was funny.

  5. First I didnt unterstand the joke - fail!

  6. Lol gonna have to use that joke, pretty corny

  7. I really hate Nadal's style of play, we could watch a much better final if it was Djokovic-Federer. Anyway, totally deserved win by Djokovic, I'm happy to see him #1 instead of Nadal :P

  8. Yep, that was a nice match.

  9. Since these two are so close in age, I hope this is a better rivalry than Fed/Nad. Since Fed was so old, it was only time till Nadal passed him by. This however, could be something Tennis can hang their hat on until the next batch of phenoms arrive.

  10. I love Novak DJokovic he is the best tennis player ever.
