First of all a thank you is in order for Novak Djokovic. No, not for beating Rafael Nadal in the longest ever Grand Slam final but for pushing the Spaniard to become an even better player than he was even when he was winning everything.
Rafael Nadal capped off on average year – by his standard – on a high by playing a pivotal role in Spain’s fifth Davis Cup triumph on Sunday.
The signs of a packed season are clearly evident. With the season in its last leg, the body is wearing off and with it the aura of invincibility.
Part of a small but growing breed of people for whom sport is not just cricket. Well, the passion started with cricket but somewhere in between it lost out to football, tennis and F1.
