Djokovic; the third active tennis player who reaches semifinal in All four GS

Congrats to Nole After Federer and Nalbandian he is the third active player to do it. Fed and Nalby both did it at the age of 24 and now Djokovic makes it at the age of 20 !

An unbelievable achievement for any tennis player, never mind a 20 year-old one

Oct/Nov 2007: There was a time in history when the quality of a tennis player was determined by how many games he won off David Nalbandian.

Re: Djokovic; the third active tennis player who reaches semifinal in All four GS

Seems Nole is determined to become #1 at one point in the near future... his consistency is frightening. Rafa on clay was even more consistent in the last couple of years, but this dude keeps rolling on ALL surfaces. That's pretty much what it takes to become #1.
