Michael Says:

Novak has become some kind of Ambassador for his Country. The Nation feels proud to have such a successful sportsman which enhances the honour and prestige of a Nation. Novak has set an example to the young of Serbia to emulate him and thereby he has become an inpsiration to aspiring sportsmen in Serbia. Having coming from such a troubled and war torn Country and achieved so much stands to Novak’s credit. I wish him the very best and all the luck in US Open. I hope after making three consecutive finals at the US Open, he will reconquer the crown once again.
