Novak Djokovic Wins Over World No. 1 Rafael Nadal

In the most recent Masters Series BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells last Sunday, Novak Djokovic cemented his status when he won over Rafa Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-2.

Since he won the Australian Open in January this year, he has consistently won all his matches and after he won over Roger Federer last Sunday in the semi-finals, he also replaced him at World No. 2 ranking.

Unfortunately for Djokovic, Rafa is still almost 4,000 points away from him when ATP rankings list is released so he still holds the World no. 1 position. The one thing that was noticed during the game though was how often Rafa Nadal failed to return or if he did so very weakly every time Djokovic spun his serve towards the corner of the service box or Nadal’s backhand. Is this to be considered Rafa’s weakness? According to Rafa, it was his serve that didn’t work. Well, if other tennis players were watching, and most likely they were, doing it again to the almost unbeatable Rafa would prove Djokovic’s strategy.

Novak Djokovic’s game has certainly gone from superb to sensational. He can be considered as one of the tennis players having the best backhands. But one of the things fans really enjoy about Djokovic is his impersonations. He really is so funny when he imitates Maria Sharapova, Rafa Nadal, Andy Roddick and even Roger Federer. He even has a video of him talking off his active wear top while singing I Will Survive at the top of his voice.

Here are some samples of his funny impersonations:
