Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic seems to have assimilated the six months he was off the tournaments to give a boost to his career with a total change in all aspects, which has led him to write a new page in the history of the ATP.
He changed his technical team, his way of training, began to manage on the court, and the results paid off. After leaving the top 20, Djokovic reached the Masters 1000 of Cincinnati in the 10th place in the world ranking.
With an unstoppable step he went from round to round until he reached the final, an instance where the Swiss Roger Federer was measured, who had already beaten him in three of the five finals that the Serbian had lost in this tournament in the past.
The forcefulness of a double 6-4 allowed Djokovic to add the only trophy of a Masters 1000 that he did not have in his showcases, and incidentally make him the only tennis player to add at least one title in each of the tournaments that make up this category.
Now he can show off of having six championships in Indian Wells; five in Miami; four in Rome, Paris and Canada; three in Shanghai;two in Monte Carlo and Madrid and now the long-awaited in Cincinnati to add 31 Masters Series title.
Only two titles separate him from the absolute leader of that category, the Spanish Rafael Nadal, who thanks to his victory in Toronto the previous week, managed to reach the 33.
More important is the fact that having won in Cincinnati allows Novak Djokovic to take a leap of four positions in the world rankings and to be placed sixth in the world: a very important mental release before the start of the US Open, the last of the Grand Slam tournaments this season.
