Roland Garros
Rain swept the Roland Garros this year. Therefore, the finale was interrupted and not on Sunday, but finished on Monday. The final was between, again, Djokovic and Nadal. Both came relatively easily from the semifinals. Nadal had to play against Ferrer, as Murray had turned off the surprising, and won only five games against. Djokovic had a little harder against Roger Federer. Both had played a five-setter in the quarterfinals so they were a little tired but Djokovic seemed better battered and won in three sets. The finale seemed to go well. Nadal was quick to address the first two, but soon afterwards the final was interrupted by rain. Djokovic picked up after the break still in the thread again and took the third set. Nadal quickly put things in order and secured the victory 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5. Through seven times Roland Garros to win, he broke the record of six that was the name of Bjorn Borg.

Atp World Tour Finals

This year in Group (A): Djokovic, Murray, Tsonga and Berdych. Djokovic was unbeaten in the group stage along with Murray who had lost to Serbian. This group was far less exciting than Group B including: Federer, Ferrer, del Potro and Tipsarevic. This was beaten Federer, Ferrer and del Porto for a ticket to the semifinals. After two matches, Federer was already safe and went between Argentina and Spaniard.If the Argentine would win though Roger went on to the semifinals, and had even Ferrer broke Tipsarevic. Juan Martin won in a three-setter to Federer and thus earned a place in the semi-finals where he was forced to come out against Djokovic. Here he started strong and took the 1st set with conviction. When Djokovic showed his best game and his opponent does not draw his. Federer picked up in the second leg convincingly the second ticket to the finals at the expense of Andy Murray. In two exciting sets with a high level yet Djokovic took the title with skinny numbers: 7-6 7-5. The winners of the doubles were surprisingly Spanish Granollers and Lopez.
