Outstanding play on that bp. Djokovic was ahead in that point at the start.
If Berdych can't keep a double break lead I'm done with tennis.
Djokovic took set 6-4 against Berdych.
“Does Djokovic resemble myself?” Agassi said. “No, he is even better. He defends really well, while I struggled more in that element of the game. Novak looks totally relaxed when defending, completely calm and the quality of his return is incredible. He is also extremely flexible in his game, which is facilitated by his ability to anticipate his rival’s moves. That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”
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.
He deserves it, I guess, in the sense that he was next-in-line if one of the top four experienced some unfortunate setback like Rafa. But I can't see anyone other than the most loyal fan talking about "who's in Ferrer's draw".
