The hardworking staff loves Rafael Nadal, a tennis player who’s classy, humble, and supremely talented.
But he’s clearly met his match in Noval Djokovic, a tennis player who’s admirable in his efforts to rehabilitate Serbia’s international image, and even more supremely talented.
Yesterday’s Australian Open men’s singles final was Nadal’s finest effort against Djokovic, but he still came up short – for the seventh time in seven straight finals.
Here’s hoping for a Nadal-Djokovic final in the French Open four months from now. Maybe – maybe – Rafa can get the Novak off his back there.
