Wondeful, but the king is not dead just yet

Djoković beats Federer! They said it was in the air but quite honestly I thought they were over the top. On Sunday it was reality. Djoković ha passed another milestone towards greatness. He played awesome tennis and it would have been a pity if he stopped at the final, which incidentally confrimed him as the tie-break king.

It would be a mistake, however, to believe that a major change happened. Federer is till the undisputed number one and Nadal follows closely. In order to break this dichotomy Djoković needs to play in a Grand Slam final, and he is aware of this too. There is no doubt, however, that he is now the "best of the rest"! He has also shown himself to be a champion off court by calmly reacting to the "mistake" of the announcer that proclaimed him a Croat.

To top a wonderful day Ana Ivanović won a WTA Masters tournament. In women's tennis there are no players as dominant as Federer and Nadal which is good on one hand but can make it harder to win trophies on the other since anybody could beat anybody in the WTA top 20. So any title from Ana or Jelena Janković is very much valuable.

And just for the record: a big congratulations to our U18 baksetball team and the waterpolo team for winning their competitions and makig Sunday August 12th truly special.
