Djokovic beats Nadal in a Humdinger

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal played out a five and a half hour epic tennis match that will go down in history as one of the best ever. The two battled it out in the Australian Open final at the Rod Laver arena in Melbourne. Djokovic prevailed after both players had given everything they had and more. The amount of reserve energy both of them found during the see-saw battle was unbelievable. The 5 hours and 53 minute match is the longest Grand Slam singles final ever.

When the match came to an end with a Djokovic forehand winner, commentators had no adjectives left and the viewer could do nothing but cry. The raw emotion was such that, Djokovic tore his shirt open, screamed into the heavens and banged the advertisement hoardings, sanity ceased to exist.
