China Open 2013
Djokovic Stops Nadal; Clinches Fourth Beijing Crown; Serena Tops Jankovic
chinaopen.com.cn October 06 2013 Beijing – Rafael Nadal praised Novak Djokovic for the victory paying respect to the excellent play of his opponent. "To play Novak when he's playing well, if you are not playing almost at the perfect level, it's very difficult to win," Nadal said. "Probably the conditions of this court, this ball, were more favorable for him than for me. He did very well. He played a great match." Djokovic was nearly unbeatable while serving on Sunday afternoon, notching a staggering 91 percent first serve win percentage. The 26-year-old didn't drop a serve all match, leaving Nadal reliant on his serve, which lacked consistency throughout the contest.
