French Open 2008: Djokovic vs. Nadal

The number 3 world tennis player, Novak Djokovic showed his real skill in the sport when he battled against Rafael Nadal. The game left the audience too excited on who among the two will reach the finals in the French Open and hold the title.

Nadal has managed to leave a pattern in his tennis career. He undoubtedly improved in his performance since last year and seemed to lead a dynasty in the French Open. He achieved his straight four men singles title, reached the finals against Roger Federer, earned a 27-0 at the Roland Garros and established his 20th against 27 straight set win.

In the beginning of 2008, Rafael Nadal set his semi-final to becoming the Australian Open Champion. His game against Novak Djovokovic lasted for at least 75 minutes. Eventually, Nadal lead a 6-4, 6-2, 3-0 leaving Djovokovic behind.

The French Open has set the suspense again when the two strong players set a tiebreaker game. Nadal played and showed off his moves before Djokovic attempted mashing winners. The score lead to a 6-3. This time Nadal finally sent his invincible overhead into a corner wherein Djokovic was unable to retrieve the shot.

Nevertheless, it was the best game so far when the loser, himself, stood proud and thanked the audience for the applause. Everyone knew that to get into a tiebreaker game with a Rafael Nadal is already a victory in himself, especially in the French Open.
