U.S. Open Tennis 2011 Men's Final: Novak Djokovic Looks For Fifth Straight Victory Over Rafael Nadal

Who is the best men’s tennis player in the world right now? That matter might well be settled this afternoon in Arthur Ashe Stadium when the No. 1 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, meets the No. 2 player in the world, Rafael Nadal, for the men’s singles title in the finals of the 2011 U.S. Open Tennis Championships.

The match is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. ET. Television coverage will be provided by CBS.

Djokovic has titles in two of this year’s three Grand Slam events, winning the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles. The third Grand Slam, the French Open, was won by Nadal.

Djokovic has won all five times the two have played against each other in 2011, including the finals at Wimbledon. Douglas Perry of The Oregonian went so far as to say Nadal has become Djokovic’s “lapdog” this season.
