2011-Tennis: Djokovic prevails nine months, Federer finished strong

PARIS  – Novak Djokovic has undoubtedly marked the year 2011 in tennis, winning everything in his path for almost nine months to become world number one by winning including three Grand Slam titles.

Overshadowed, Rafael Nadal has certainly retained his crown at Roland Garros and lifted the Davis Cup but has not been able to shine this season, finished with a bang by Roger Federer, winner of two tournaments before winning in November Masters in London.

Novak Djokovic has held the top of the bill of ATP for nine months, winning the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open and won five Masters 1000, a record for a season in tournaments of this category.

His victory in New York was the last bang of the Serbian end of the season which was, like Nadal, marred by injuries that led him to forfeit in the semifinals of Davis Cup September against Argentina.

A Bercy, Djokovic threw in the towel before meeting Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals, then had to settle for a role given to Masters.
