One month after beating Roger Federer in straight sets in the Australian Open semi-finals, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic once again won a straight set victory over Federer, 6-3 6-3 in 71 minutes, winning the Dubai Championships for the 3rd consecutive year. Djokovic earns his 2nd title of the year, his 20th title overall and has not lost a match yet in 2011. With all due respect to Rafael Nadal, Novak looks like the best player in the world. The question is, can he possibly keep this level of play up over an entire season. Of course, he will lose matches. Everybody does. But when they are dominant, both Nadal and Federer can maintain this level of play over multiple seasons. We now know Djokovic has the talent and game to be #1. What remains to be seen is if he has the endurance to do so.
