It was altogether a much expected win for Novak Djokovic in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship exhibition event at Abu Dhabi. The world number 1 seemed to be on the top of the game throughout the match. Having already beat Roger Federer in the semi finals; it was an easy take for him to defeat Spain’s David Ferrer. He ended his session to clinch the title routing Ferrer for 6-2, 6-1. Earlier world number five Ferrer had upset Nadal in the semis but the world number one continued to remain undefeated. He showed why he is number one at the moment. Earlier on Saturday, Rafael Nadal beat Federer 6-1, 7-5 to clinch the third spot. Nadal who had been nursing a sore left shoulder seemed to gain some momentum after he thrashed federer.
Abu Dhabi seemed to be lucky for Djokovic. In an interview he had quoted that the atmosphere at the place was very nice, Earlier he had also quoted that he was very well prepared for the match. “ 2011 has been undoubtedly the best session of my year and as I was saying before, it was a result of the hard work that I put in before for many years, and the experience that I got in playing at the top level over the last few years that I used this year” said a confident Djokovic.
With a very good end to the session with 70-5 win loss record including 10 ATP titles, the 24 year old has shown some good performance in 2011, He is looking forward to the Australian open where he wishes to remain undefeated. Djokovic will have to face a tough battle against Federer, Nadal, and Murray. Federer seemed to be in a good form after having won three consecutive ATP titles but two consecutive losses against Djokovic and Nadal in the event would make things tough for him. After having settled for 3rd spot in the exhibition event, Nadal will also try to make a comeback.
The Australian open seems to bring some exciting matches for the viewers. It will be a great moment for all the viewers to watch the champions take on one another. It will also be a chance for Nadal, Federer and Ferrer to grab the number one position but it will never be an easy takeover against Djokovic. He continues to remain a favourite.
