The ATP has put out a short montage of Novak Djokovic’s activities after his big win over Rafael Nadal yesterday in the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters final.
Calling it his best performance ever on clay, Djokovic dominated Nadal for much of the match en route to his Monte Carlo title.
“I cannot be happier than I am in this moment knowing what I’ve been through the whole week, actually two weeks, right after Davis Cup, trying to recover and make a decision to play or not to play,” Djokovic said yesterday. “If somebody told me 10 days ago I’d be winning the trophy, I wouldn’t think it’s so realistic, to be honest. But, you know, I went through pain, I went through a big challenge, mentally, physically, emotionally, and in the end it was getting better as the tournament was going on. I knew after yesterday’s match that I had a feeling that I had a big chance to win against Rafa if I was on the top of my game. The first six, seven games, eight games, were unbelievable. It’s the best that I can play on clay. Well, it’s the only way you can win against Rafa.”
