Did the window just close on Novak Djokovic’s chance to win the French Open and career Grand Slam. A year from now the Serb will be 28 years old, likely married and with more important responsibilities in life, namely a newborn on the way.
With things other than tennis potentially taking up his time (family!), how will he be maintain his dedication to the sport enough to reverse an 0-6 lifetime record against Nadal in Paris?
Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal shows now signs of slowing down. The Spaniard just won his ninth French Open and 14th Slam. And without playing his best tennis he only lost a total of TWO sets the entire event, beating three Top 10 players to finish the event.
A year ago Djokovic took Nadal to the brink in a 5-set semifinal thriller at the French. This year with Boris Becker in tow he only managed the first set before physically succumbing to Nadal. And he’s now lost his last three Grand Slam finals and four of his last five.
