Serbian Idol

Novak Djokovic succeeded where Roger Federer failed, beating Argentine qualifier Guillermo Canas 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 on Sunday to win the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida. With his first ATP Masters Series title, the slender Serb became the youngest men's champion in the tournament's 23-year history. The 19-year-old celebrated his victory with a trip to the stands to hug his parents, followed by a mini-striptease on court. Djokovic will improve to a career-high No. 7 in the rankings today and is clearly letting it be known that he is a force to be reckoned with.
