Djokovic extends streak against Fish
Saturday 02 April 2011
Novak Djokovic reached the final at the Sony Ericsson Open yesterday and extended his winning streak to 25 consecutive matches by beating Mardy Fish 6-3, 6-1.
The No 2-ranked Djokovic's opponent tomorrow will be the winner of last night's late match between world No 1 Rafael Nadal and No 3 Roger Federer.
"I don't feel invincible," said Djokovic. "I don't feel I can't lose. What I feel is big confidence. What I feel is that I'm playing the best tennis of my life."
Djokovic stuck out his chest after he won a grueling baseline rally to break for a 4-2 lead. Fish's best chance to get back in the match came three games later when he failed to put away an easy forehand on break point, and Djokovic served out the set.
It was a runaway from there. Djokovic finished with only 14 unforced errors and 15 winners, the last coming on match point.
