Will Nole go down as the ultimate example of a Spartan warrior?
I am a Fed fan, but I was truly impressed by Nole's performance today: everybody here knows about the fighting spirit of Nadal, but Djokovic seems to have surpassed it by far. Down 4-2 in the fifth and struggling because of tiredness (he could barely move) he fought his way back and stunned Nadal winning that fifth set 7-5. Two days before he was 5-5 *15-40 in the fifth against Murray and battled back to win. Now he's won the last 7 finals against Nadal (including last three grand slam finals).
So the question is: is Nole the ultimate example of a true Spartan warrior legend?
I think he is.
