Day 26 - A match that makes you happy

Australian Open 2011 Semifinal
N. Djokovic def. R. Federer 7-6(3) 7-5 6-4

Before that match, I was dragged by a die-hard Roger fan (you know who you are) into making a bet about its result. I was sure I was going to lose - I actually liked Roger at that time, and after the 2010 World Tour Finals I didn't think anyone was going to stop him on his way to slam #17.

With each set, I became more and more excited – Novak seemed absolutely unstoppable (little did I know how 2011 was going to turn out). So, in addition to seeing my favourite player win a really big match, I was also delighted to win the bet. It didn't involve money, only some online jokes, but it was great fun nevertheless.
