Djokovic (nearly) does a Becker
Well I guess Mardy Fish's run was too good to last. He put up a brave fight against Djokovic, taking the second set, but when it came to it couldn't match Djokovic for fire power.
The turning point came in the first game of the deciding set. Djokovic was 0-40 down but demonstrated his champion's credentials by serving three consecutive aces and two service winners to hold . He then broke Fish in the next game.
Nearly as good as Becker's 5 consecutive aces.
This is Djokovic's 9th career title and the win takes him to within 425 points of Nadal. Watch out Rafa, Djoko's going to get ya...
