Before the final I told my (Nadal and Murray-loving) boyfriend that it really wouldn't bother me if Djokovic lost -- because the only thing I REALLY want now is for Novak to win the French. (I'm not greedy.) I guess you could say I've entered the Federer stage of my love Serbian love affair, where I stopped losing sleep once Roger broke Sampas' record for majors. What I didn't anticipate, however, is that Novak would break away from the pack to such a degree. And with no reliable challengers or obvious successors, for the first time it's beginning to look like he too could surpass Sampas, and Roger as well.
Can he do it?
