The glory days of Roger Federer are not coming as easy as they used to. No man has been more responsible for this fact than Novak Djokovic, who once again outperformed the Swiss superstar in the Wimbledon Final for his 3rd title. Though a resilient 2nd set gave Federer a fighting chance, ultimately Djokovic was simply too good and too physically imposing for Federer to claim an 8th title, and he seemed all too aged a player to really get a firm grip on the game.

Djokovic has certainly been the best player in the world for the past since a tremendous 2011 in which he took three Grand Slams. Now in 2015, the Serbian star has 9 Major titles and is playing the best tennis in the world. His relentless style of physical play, combined with his tremendous overall skill set, and fiery personality on the court has made him quite unbeatable.
For Djokovic, looking ahead to the US Open could assert another impeccable year. He’s lost just once in a major (at the French Open final to Stanislas Wawrinka) and could very well match his three Grand Slams of 2011.
Certainly there’s reason to believe that other great men’s players could rise up to compete with Djokovic at some time, but meanwhile he’s just continuing to take these titles until that time comes. His 9 Major titles put him 8th all time, though he’s still got a long way to go to match Federer’s 17, a number that hypothetically could increase with Federer still playing close to the top of the men’s game.
But for now, all eyes will turn towards the 2015 US Open, where tickets are going fast given the historical importance of the occasion. Additionally, while the tournament just concluded, now is actually a great time to get 2016 Wimbledon tickets for what is certain to be another fantastic event, and who knows, maybe will provide Roger Federer with his 8th Wimbledon title. Championship Tennis Tours is your go-to location for tickets and packages for these tremendous events.
