This was the first tweet that I saw when I logged onto Twitter after Novak Djokovic delivered a bagel (6-0) and a breadstick (6-1) to his fellow countryman Viktor Troiki, advancing to the BNP Paribas Open quarter-finals. And words have never rung so true.
The man is on FIYAH.
Since the beginning of 2011, Novak has been undefeated, and yesterday he extended his winning streak to an impressive 15-0. Even world number 1 Rafael Nadal admitted that Nole would be the one to beat in this tournament, and so far he has proved Rafa correct, losing only 6 games in his first 3 matches.
I have to be honest, I wasn't a Nole fan in the past, but in the past 2 years he has really matured and has been able to balance the off-court "Djoker" with the on-court "Falcon" without any "injuries" and/or "breathing problems" clouding the view.
He's a good guy playing great tennis. What more can you ask? Adje!
