Coming in to 2011, Rafael Nadal was the World's best player and closely followed by Roger Federer. The two heavyweights of modern tennis had now dominated the world of tennis for six years, and it seemed as though, their monopoly over the men's game would stay longer.
Enter Novak Djokovic - the Djoker was in no mood to joke any more as he meant business. The 2008 Australian Open champion had previously shown signs of genius, but had flattered to deceive. His 2011 season is hailed as one of the best seasons ever in men's tennis. From the on-set of the season, up until the French Open semifinal Djokovic remained unbeaten, encapsulating a 43 match winning run. During the year, Novak won three out of the four Grand Slams and a record five Masters Series 1000 titles. Djokovic played 76 matches in the season and won seventy out of them. At the same time, Djokovic beat Nadal in six consecutive finals to make an even stronger statement. By winning a prize money of 12.6 million dollars he set a new record for the highest sum of prize money in a season.
