NUMBER 1! Djokovic Wins China Open
Posted from WordPress for BlackBerry.
Novak Djokovic described his crushing 6-0, 6-2 win over Tomas Berdych at the China Open on Sunday as his greatest ever final, as his remarkable 100 percent record in Beijing continues.
Serb Djokovic was 5-0 ahead in the second set, one game from serving up an incredible “double bagel” as he tore through his Czech opponent with a brilliant serving display.
As he was staring at an embarrassing defeat, a stunned Berdych laughed as he pretended to hand his racket to a ball-girl, suggesting that she may be able to take on his opponent.
But the world No 6 rallied briefly to take Djokovic’s serve and then take the scores to a more respectable 5-2, before the reigning champion sealed his fifth title in Beijing, an event he has won the five times he has entered.
“This has been, under the circumstances, probably the best performance in all finals in my career I played. It was incredible. Incredible,” the world No 1 said after his stunning victory over the third seed.
“It was six-love, five-love, under an hour. Everything I tried worked. To be proud of the performance is the least I can say of what I played tonight.”
Berdych, who was still stunned, shaking his head for much of the post-match press conference, admitted he was no match for his opponent.
