If I ask you a few Novak Djokovic match, going through a 40-15 Roger Federer on serve and that ended up altering his profession, it’s probably that the overwhelming majority will reply me that of Wimbledon 2019. However no. There may be, curiously, one other recreation that has been 10 years outdated whose historical past was similar to that of the ultimate in London a few years in the past.
We speak about what occurred on the US Open 2011, a second that has simply turned a decade and that ended up altering, presumably, the course of Nole’s historical past. Novak and Roger met within the semifinals that 12 months, in New York. At the moment, the Swiss was heading to be the perfect in historical past, and Djokovic was one of many nice sights of the circuit, however we didn’t even think about that we have been going to see a meteoric rise in that decade by the one from Belgrade to the about to turn into the GOAT.
The H2H between the 2 was led by Federer by a transparent 13-6 (it’s 23-27 for Nole thus far), and it was the fifth time in a row that they crossed on the US Open. His matches have been all the time even and filled with emotion. Nole was chopping floor with Roger, and after dropping clearly in three units, he ended up turning the tables and reached that 2011 version with three Grand Slam titles (two of them, in that very same season), however the assembly didn’t begin in one of the best ways.
Federer scored the primary two units and put concern within the Serbian’s physique. Novak, who already at the moment started to show that iron mentality that was sharpening much more over time, didn’t lose religion and ended up forcing a fifth sleeve.
There, Roger went with a break in favor and was positioned with 5-3 and serve. He had it in his hand. After a few factors, we come to the second that triggers this text. 40-15. Federer would have two factors to advance to the ultimate.
