Novak Djokovic: How He Has Revolutionized the Famous

2011 may well prove to be one of the most important years ever in tennis.

Rafael Nadal has seen his No. 1 ranking usurped rising Serbian superstar Novak Djokovic.

Roger Federer still has not won a major since the 2010 Australian Open.

While the Swiss master is by no means finished as a player, he may well be on the down-slope of his career. Enter the young Djokovic, who looks likely to enjoy an illustrious prime of his career.

He has already achieved an unfathomable 53-1 record so far in 2011. He has conquered Rafa in all five of their encounters this year—whether it be grass, hard court, or Nadal's favorite: clay. He has a record of 3-1 against Federer (that loss came in the French Open semis.)

The 24-year-old Serb has made no doubt about his dominance, and his current ranking is totally justified.

I will now be giving you an overview of his year so far, with a prediction for the upcoming U.S. Open at Flushing Meadows, and a look ahead to 2012.
