I think Fed's also proud on his no.1 rank as he very well should be.
We've heard Matts, let's see what Novak had to say:
Q. Do you feel Roger's dominance in the game is finished?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: No, I don't think so, no. I mean, it's not possible that only one tournament is changing the history. Of course, I mean, I played amazing tennis here, so I think I absolutely deserved to win, even against him in the semifinals. You know, he accepted in the right way.
Sure, he's gonna come back in a big style, of course. He's still planning to be the best player in the world, so we all know how good is he. We gonna see a lot of him, of course, this year.
Q. There are such small margins between defeat and victory, and you've tasted both in Grand Slam finals now. What do you think was the special difference today that perhaps just gave you the edge?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I didn't play Roger (smiling).
