Yesterday’s final in Rome between Federer and Djokovic was a fascinating spectacle, not only for the superb tennis but for the psychology of the event. Federer was thoroughly outclassed in two punishing sets. The look on his face at first said, “This guy is a better tennis player than I am”. Then the look deepened to something even more disturbing for the great Federer: “This guy is a better tennis player than I ever was”. Djokovic’s level is so consistently high, and so breathtaking, that it is becoming clear that he is really the best tennis player of all time.
