    atptennis.com had a match summary from Djoko's match vs. Nadal today and in it he said this:

    "I knew he's the best player in the world on this surface before the match," the Serb said. "What I was trying to do was to be aggressive, but at the same time patient, which is very difficult. That's because the balls you don't get back on hard courts you do get back on clay. He's really comfortable on this surface, but I'm really satisfied with the way I played today. I just need time to improve."

    It sounds to me like he might be growing up a little. He didn't mention having control of the match, haha, and what he said is the right attitude to have in my opinion. Time will tell if these young guys become great players I guess, but they're really something.

    Seems like Djokovic is starting to get out of his dream world now. :)

    Nadal is already a great player, Djokovic is on his way to be one.
