We profile the most impressive athletes from the week gone by.
In the week that was, several athletes - some expected, some not have fired, for self or team, and impressed fans worldwide with their consummate skill and brilliant game.
Here are 5 sportsmen who have impressed us in the past week:
He’s the danger man, the one player nobody is able to beat, no matter what the tournament. He’s swept a mammoth number of titles over his career so far.
Fresh off winning the title at Indian Wells, California, the first ATP Masters tournament of the year, Djokovic faced world No. 12 and rising talent Milos Raonic in the final and bageling him. In fact, Djokovic, the double reigning champion, only dropped a single set en route to the finals, against American rival Bjorn Fratangelo.
Only 3 months into the year, and Djokovic, playing at the Miami Masters, is also the two-time reigning champion here. Having received a first-round bye, Djokovic has beat both his competitors so far – Kyle Edmund and Joao Sousa – in easy straight sets.
Elsewhere, with Roger Federer struggling with injury and Djokovic’s Roland Garros nemesis, Stan Wawrinka, not finding his 2015 form this year, the path looks clear for Djokovic’s absolute dominantion to continue well into 2016.
