They had their own history. Several battles were fought before. The dust of defeat has never masked them from the taste of victory.  This Sunday’s encounter had promised a lot and it was indeed an epic battle.

 Yes, the two invincible, the Spaniard Rafa and the Serb, Djokovic gave all an epic encounter to watch as they fought in the longest-ever Grand Slam summit clash which lasted for 5 hr & 53 minutes.


As much it mattered wh won in the end, it didn’t matter who actually won. As victorious Djokovic spoke-“Rafa, you’re one of the best players ever. You are one of the most respected guy on the tour. We made history tonight, and unfortunately there couldn’t be two winners…”

Even though my heart sank at the defeat of Rafa, this time it didn’t sink in.
