What would you say if told you the that best tennis player of all time and the best tennis player of 2011 will go against each other in an epic semifinal battle?
Roger Federer is 14-7 against Novak Djokovic, but has lost the last three matches on hard court against the 24 year old from Serbia.
Federer and Djokovic have met in Flushing Meadows four years running.
The first three times the Swiss Maestro came up on top, but in 2010 Djokovic was finally able to beat the Fed-Express in an unforgettable five set thriller.
Every time those two play against each other the clear winner is the sport of tennis, and those out there who say that Federer is past his prime, and that he lost his killer instinct, just watch and learn.
We forget all too readily that it was Federer who snapped Djoko's unbeaten run in 2011 with his victory over the Serbian in the French Open semifinals. New setting, same tournament round.
Perhaps Federer can do it again.
