I’m one of those sports fans that is always rooting for the underdog, and I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Novak Djokovic of Serbia upset Roger Federer today during the US Open semifinals! Djokovic was ranked 3rd coming in the US Open, but a Nadal-Federer finals was so highly anticipated, that everyone had pretty much discounted Djokovic from the running. The game was so close, coming down to the 12th game in the 5th set, with Djokovic playing a strong game! I love Federer, but it was clear Djokovic really wanted this: he played Federer in the past three U.S. Opens, losing in the 2007 final and the semi-finals the past two years.
Congrats and looking forward to a great match against Nadal tomorrow!
