Djokovic throw his fist in the air after defeating Rafael Nadal.
Rafael Nadal comes up short on his way again for another title apperance in Cincinnati Masters. Novak Djokovic stops his almost two months of non-stop winning games from clay to grass to hard. It’s an amazing year for Nadal but everything must come to an end.
The third seed Djokovic will face Murray on the Finals of the Cincinnati Masters on Sunday. Novak Djokovic reached the final with a 6-1, 7-5 victory that delayed the inevitable. Murray reached his first Masters series final by beating Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 6-4.
Meanwhile, Nadal by reaching the semifinals of the $2.6 million ATP Western & Southern Financial Group Masters, Nadal piled up enough points to overtake Roger Federer as the world’s No. 1 player. Given the way points accrue — the last 52 weeks are counted — he will surpass Federer in the Aug. 18 rankings.
Bravo to Rafael Nadal!
