The Master of Masters: Novack Djokovic

London O2 Arena -

Novack Djokovic (No. 2, Serbia) convincingly defeated Rafael Nadal (No. 1, Spain) in two sets over 1 hour and 37 minutes, 6-3, 6-4 in the season-ending
Barclays ATP World Tour Finals on Monday night. 

It was Djokovic's third World Tour Finals title and second in a row, and extended his 22-match unbeaten streak. He won 7 titles this year, including the Australian Open.

"It's the highest quality of tennis that you have next to Grand Slams, because every match that you play, you play against a top 10 player every second day," explained Djokovic.

"We pushed each other to the limit [and] made each other better."

For his part, Nadal completed an unprecedented comeback from injury last season -- returning to World No. 1 rank, capturing 2 Grand Slams Titles, and reaching the World Tour Finals. 

He finishes the season with a win-loss record of 75-7. 

"This is probably one of the best seasons of my career," declared Nadal.

It was a fantastic finish to the professional tennis season, with Djokovic summing it up best: "This can serve as a great platform for 2014 season."

See you next year.
