World no. 2 Novak Djokovic refuses to lose in the 2011 season. He defeated world no. 1 Rafael Nadal in the finals of the Mutua Madrid Open this week. He defeated Nadal, the defending champion of the clay court tournament, in straight sets, 7-5 6-4. This win marked Djokovic’s sixth straight title in the 2011 season, extending his winning streak to 34 straight games. Meanwhile, he snapped Nadal’s 35 game clay-court streak and defeated him on clay for the first time in their last 9 meetings on the surface. If he continues at this pace, winning his third 1000 point tournament of the season, he will soon take the world no. 1 spot from the reigning Nadal. Is this the start of a new era in the tennis world?
