[UPDATE: Novak Djokovic is your champ in straight sets – 6-2, 6-4, 6-7, 6-1 – capping one of the most amazing tennis years in the history of the sport. He was 64-2 in 2011 and won three of the four grand slam events.]
Novak Djokovic is the top-ranked tennis player in the world. Rafael Nadal is ranked second. The two will meet at 4 pm on CBS for the US Open title. Not a bad Monday in sports, huh? Tennis at 4, an early Monday Night Football game at 7, and then a nightcap at 10:30.
Here are their girlfriends, who should appear prominently on CBS: Maria Francisca Perello (on the right; she’s been dating Nadal for a few years) and Jelena Ristic (on the left, she’s been dating Djokovic for awhile). Looking for actual analysis on the match? Click here.
Nadal defeated Djokovic in the final last year in four sets. This year, Djokovic has dominated Nadal, going 5-0 including a victory in the Wimbledon final. My pick: Nadal.
