Novak Djokovic - the best player in the world and Real No. 1 - came to play today.
And play he did, giving the world a demonstration on why he is the man to beat on these great Spartan courts. Relentless and defiant, Nole took Ferrer's weapons and dismantled them, along with the Spaniard's spirit.
Make no mistake about it. This is Nole's house.
Abandon hope, all ye who enter!

On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
