Congratulations to Federer & his fans for a superb tournament here. He hasn't dropped a set in winning the title. Impressive stuff. And a positive step towards his campaign for the USO.
Federer utterly dominated play with aggressive play in the first set. Djokovic put up a good fight in the second set & could easily have taken it. But he didn't & there it is. He has often beaten Federer, and this defeat is unlikely to cause him insomnia.
It is a trend here for some to begrudge Federer any praise or to acknowledge his efforts. So be it - their petty mindedness speaks for itself. All I know is that he is enjoying a remarkable year by any standards, and deserves the plaudits he is getting. Very well done to him.
Djokovic is a gentleman. He is graceful in defeat, and it was good to see him smiling & sharing a chat with Federer at the ceremony, looking relaxed. I look forward to these two great players crossing swords again very soon.
