MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) – Novak Djokovic has that unbeatable feeling. And well he should.
The Serb outlasted Rafael Nadal to defend his Australian Open title in the longest ever Grand Slam final and became the fifth man to win three straight majors in the Open Era. Djokovic now has the French Open— the one major to elude him — in his sights. He won’t even rule out the ultimate: the Grand Slam.
“One player (Rod Laver) has done it, so it is possible,” he said after the traditional post-victory photo shoot in a downtown Melbourne park on Monday. “Obviously the times are different and tennis nowadays is much more competitive and much more physical. And that makes that challenge more difficult to achieve. But everything is possible.”
With the London Olympics to follow Wimbledon this year, Djokovic could even make it a Golden Slam by winning the gold medal at London 2012 to go with the four majors.
