Nole captured his first Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters title on Sunday with a 6-2, 7-6 (1) victory over Rafael Nadal in one hour and 52 minutes to win his eighth different Masters 1000 crown.
Nole won his third title of the season and his 14th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophy. The only event he has yet to win is the Western & Southern Open in Cincinatti.
In the first set Nole took advantage by gaining service breaks in the second and fourth games and raced to a 5-0 lead. He missed five break/set points in the sixth game, and then got broken in the next when serving for the set. Djokovic made a third break when Nadal double faulted on Nole’s eighth set point. Nadal made a break in the fifth game of the second set and consolidated it to go 4-2 up. Nole regained his composure, played a superb game, with backhand, forehand and service winners to hold to love and then broke back to level the result. He was broken again in the 11th game, but found strength to fight back once more with Rafa serving for the set. Djokovic saved the best for last, taking the tie-break 7-1 to end Nadal’s reign of 46 straight wins and eight consecutive titles in Monte Carlo, making it third time lucky after finishing runner-up to the Spaniard in 2009 and 2012.
“It’s a great pleasure to be here. It’s a magnificent moment, very, very special, because I live here and have a lot of support,” Novak said at the trophy ceremony. “Rafa, it was a pleasure once again. Thank you for letting me win at least once.” “I cannot wish for a better start of the clay season. I spend a lot of time in Monaco so I know a lot of people, we became friends over many years, and its definitely the most beautiful club in the world. I’m very privileged to be playing in it. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to play this year. Right now it’s the best decision of my life!”

Novak Djokovic defeated 6-2, 6-1 Fabio Fognini on Saturday in 51 minutes and will face Rafael Nadal in the final on Sunday at 15hs local time.
Novak won 82 per cent of points behind his first serve and converted four of six break point opportunities, two in each set, to wrap up his 25th victory of the season.
“For me it was important to step on the court and get control of the match,” reflected Novak. “That’s what I did right away. I was aggressive. I knew what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to stay as short as possible on the court to get quick points. I played really, really well. He made a lot of unforced errors, which helped me to win.”
“The way I felt in the first match, if somebody told me I’d be playing the final, I’d be very happy to hear that,” said Djokovic. “I was taking it match by match. After every win, I feel very content and very fulfilled because knowing the circumstances I was in, every win is big.”
“Whenever you play Rafa, you expect the toughest challenge possible on clay,”. “I’m ready for that. I’m very happy that physically, mentally, emotionally I have been improving each day, I feel better on the court, more confident. I will have to be on top of my game. I’ll have to be focused and motivated from the start to the end in order to have any chance of winning against Nadal”. “I need to have a very optimistic mindset in order to get a win. I’m not going out there to play my best; I’m going out there to win. That’s how I’m going to feel tomorrow,” declared Djokovic. “I lost to him twice in the final here in Monte-Carlo. It’s always a big challenge when you play a top player, especially Rafa, who hasn’t lost here in eight years. I think that says enough about his record and qualities.”
Djokovic has as 25-2 record in 2013 and is aiming to win his third title of the year (Australian Open, Dubai). He is also looking to win his 14th Masters trophy.

1. Madrid Masters 2011: Final – beat Rafael Nadal 7-5, 6-4
Novak Djokovic overcame a significant psychological hoodoo by scoring this impressive win over Rafa on a surface the Spaniard has made his own during the course of his career. Djokovic went into the match with the knowledge that he’d just beaten the Spaniard in two successive big finals – Indian Wells and Miami. However Nadal on clay is a different proposition and for six years he’d been almost untouchable. Yet Djokovic managed to find weaknesses, causing Nadal no end of problems with his devastating cross-court backhands and crucially he remained mentally tough enough on the big points to clinch a defining victory in their rivalry.
2. Rome Masters 2011: Final – beat Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-4
By now Djokovic was inside Nadal’s head after victories in Indian Wells, Miami and Madrid but his win in the Rome final was one of his best performances of 2011. So often Nadal has reduced opponents to helpless frustration on clay, this time he got a taste of his own medicine. I never thought I’d see Nadal look as though he’d run out of ideas, not on clay anyway. But there was an air of desperation about the Spaniard as he slipped to another defeat against his rival. I still believe that if Djokovic hadn’t lost to Roger Federer in the Roland Garros semi-finals, he would have completed the career Grand Slam that year.
3. French Open 2012: Quarter-Finals – beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6(6), 6-1
This wasn’t an especially high quality quarter-final but in terms of sheer drama it was the match of the tournament, pushing Djokovic to the limit and forcing him to dig as deep as he’s ever done in a Grand Slam. Tsonga had promised to ‘fight like a lion’ before the match and after recovering from a first set blowout he looked on course to pull off a shock upset in front of a partisan crowd. However Djokovic showed the fighting spirit which had seen him beat Nadal over six hours earlier in the year, saving four match points in the fourth set before clinching victory in five.
4. French Open 2012: Semi-Finals – beat Roger Federer 6-4, 7-5, 6-3
Djokovic wasn’t at his best during the 2012 clay-court swing but he still produced an outstanding performance to see off Federer in straight sets. It’s an especially notable win as it put him into the French Open final for the first time in his career and a year earlier, Federer had ended his dreams and lengthy winning streak in a four set classic. The Swiss shot off to an early lead but Djokovic remained rock-solid and Federer didn’t have the consistency to live with him.
5. French Open 2006: Second Round – beat Fernando Gonzalez 6-4, 6-1, 3-6, 4-6, 6-1
While there are few surprises in my top four, this is more of an unusual choice. Back in May 2006, Djokovic was still a teenager, yet to achieve anything in the slams but that changed during a sensational fortnight at Roland Garros. Chilean Gonzalez was then ranked nine in the world and an Olympic gold medallists. Even more importantly, clay was his best surface yet Djokovic blasted out to a two set lead and withstood a strong fightback to clinch victory in five sets. Inspired, Djokovic went on to reach the quarter-finals that year and won his first ATP title on clay a month later.

Novak Djokovic, rallied from a set down to beat Juan Monaco 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 on Thursday to reach the quarter-finals in two hours.
Monaco made a break in the third game of the opening set and consolidated it for 3-1 lead. Novak fought back in the eighth game to level at 4-all, but was broken once again, and the no.14 seed won it 6-4 after 46 minutes of play.
Nole lifted the level of his game in the second set, showing why he is the best player in the world. He was more aggressive, hitting more winners and making less unforced errors to wrap it up 6-2.
The two-time runner-up sealed the decisive third set 6-2 to improve to a 23-2 record of the season.
“I had a part of the match where I twisted it again, unfortunately,” said Djokovic. “But I managed to overcome that pain.”
“I think that my ankle is in a good state as the days are passing by. Today was a big test, I had a great quality opponent.” “I tried to shorten the points. I served well when I needed to”.
Match statistics: aces (5-0), double faults (3-2), winners (25-10), unforced errors (45-37), total points won (84-71).
For a place in the last four, Novak will meet world no.49 Jarkko Nieminen of Finland who upset fifth-seeded Argentine Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 4-6, 7-6.

Novak Djokovic win his 22nd match in 2013 after defeat Mikhail Youzhny 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 in two hours and 15 minutes on Wednesday.
Youzhny raced to a 4-0 lead in the opening set. Novak got one break back, but the Russian sealed it 6-4 in 42 minutes.
In the second set Nole found his rhythm and started playing better. He reduced the number of unforced errors and won 14 straight points at one stage. Nole broke his rival twice, in the fourth and sixth games, and won the set 6-1 in 38 minutes.
In the third set Nole kept the momentum to break in the first game of the deciding set. The former world no.8 fought back to level. At 3-3, Youzhny saved three break points but he couldn’t do the same at 4-4. Novak made a crucial break and served out the set and match 6-4.
“My movements on the clay are still not at the maximum and not where I want them to be,” said Novak. “But as the days go by, I think I’m going to slowly get into it and hopefully I can elevate the level of performance in the next match. Today was a big test, over two hours. I had a great quality opponent. I’m very happy to win and happy to compete.”
“I didn’t know if I’m going to be playing the tournament up to yesterday basically. I know that my game is still not there, obviously, and I had a lot of ups and downs throughout the match. Physically also I think I’ve put double the effort than I do usually because I still don’t feel comfortable.”
“I haven’t practised much. An hour maximum a day. Obviously it’s taking its toll on my game. But as I said, happy to win and see what tomorrow can bring.”
Match statistics: aces (4-3), double faults (3-6), winners (24-20), unforced errors (38-49).
Novak will face in the third-round Juan Monaco on Thursday. The Argentine eliminated Latvian Ernests Gulbis 6-0, 3-6, 6-3.
Tommy Haas (15) broke Novak’s serve four times from nine opportunities and saved the only break point he faced posting a 6-2, 6-4 win in 80 minutes.
Novak was behind in the match from the fifth game. He struggled to find his rhythm, with a very low serve percentage in windy conditions on the Stadium Court at Crandon Park.
“I congratulate him. He definitely made great tactics,” said Djokovic. “He used the serve well and he moved around the court really well. He was better.” “As far as I’m concerned, it’s definitely the worst match I have played in a long time.” “I just didn’t feel good on the court. I don’t know.
I mean, conditions were really much, much different from what I have played, you know, in previous matches. Balls didn’t bounce at all. ”
“I definitely hoped and believed that I could come back. I was fighting. I was trying all the way up to the last ball. There are days where you just don’t feel good on the court. Nothing really goes your way. This is one of those days. But all the credit to him for making me play this bad.”
“I always feel really nice here in Miami. The crowd is fantastic and always giving me plenty of support,” Djokovic said. “Unfortunately, I didn’t give them that third set. I wanted it badly. I was trying to find rhythm and that’s the way it is.”
Match statistics: aces (2-0), double faults (1-0), winners (7-13), unforced errors (30-18), total points won (47-64).

Novak Djokovic defeats Somdev Devvarman 6-2, 6-4 on Stadium Court in Miami on Sunday and will face in the fourth-round Tommy Haas at the Sony Open Tennis.
Battling windy conditions, Djokovic took 28 of his 31 first serve points and faced just one break point in the 68-minute victory. He and Devvarman were facing off for the first time.
“It was very difficult to kind of get into a rhythm because you couldn’t really serve at 100 percent and you had to go more for precision and put twice as much effort into the step adjustments because of the windy conditions,” said Djokovic. “All in all, I’m just happy to get through the rough day.”
“He’s very talented and he’s probably one of the most experienced active players in the world now,” Djokovic said. “He can play equally well on any surface. Today [with] windy conditions, I watched his match. He played terrific and so, you can always expect Tommy to fight and try his best.
Nole in the press conference also talked about the trophy we gave him in Indian Wells (You can read all about it here):
“It is a great start,” said Djokovic. “After Indian Wells, I tried to rest. There are different conditions here, but tonight was perfect for tennis. I enjoyed every moment of it and I love this court.”
Djokovic won 59 percent of his return points and capitalized on five of his seven break point chances to ease into the third round with a 53-minute victory. He was facing off against Rosol for the first time. The two took the court much later than expected, following a three-hour rain delay and a 27-minute blackout, but Djokovic said he was unaffected by the curveballs.
“I probably had a seven-hour delay in Indian Wells before the fourth round, so this was a mild delay,” laughed Djokovic. “The hotel where we are staying is nearby, so it’s convenient to rest and prepare.”
The Serb is seeking his fourth crown at Crandon Park, having lifted his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophy in 2007 and winning back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012 with triumphs over Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray. He improved to an 18-1 season record, with his only blemish coming in a three-set semifinal loss to Juan Martin del Potro last weekend in Indian Wells

Hello guys! We know you’re all wondering what was all the fuss about with the trophy we gave to Nole and everything well here’s the story
This is all part of the project we developed for Nole’s 10 years of professional career. It all started last year with the idea of making a website, a video and a trophy honoring Nole. Originally one of us was going to give the trophy to Nole in person but unfortunately due to some last minute inconvenients that could not be possible. It took us a long time to prepare everything because we wanted it to be perfect.
The 1st part of our project was the website, in which you all were part of with your messages and contributions. Originally it was going to be a web page with fan messages only but the project developed really fast and the ideas were flowing and it grew to what it is now. Your response to the website has been amazing and we really want to thank you for that. We also want to thank Karadjorde Trkulja for the amazing exclusive designs to our web page, facebook, twitter and our logos.

The second and third parts of our project was the video and the trophy. First we needed a design for the trophy. Again thanks to team work and effort and a lot of love for Nole we finally came out with something we liked, and this:
And now the hard part, to give the trophy to Nole.
This would have not been possible with the help of very important people to us. First a really huge thank you to our Fan Club Team Leader for USA, Mirjana Sladic.
