10 Reason Nadal Should Watch His Back

Novak Djovokic has to be feeling like a million bucks right now.

The 23-year-old Serbian sealed his second Grand Slam title early this morning, cruising past Andy Murray in straight sets to win the Australian Open. In a sport that is somewhat similar to the NHL in that the mainstream sports fan thinks it revolves around two stars (Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer), Djokovic has very quietly stocked up his resume as the No. 3 player in the world.

He's now reached at least the semifinals of all four Grand Slam events and reached the final in both the Australian and U.S. Opens, as he only seems to be getting better.

So is it time to start considering Djokovic as a real threat to Nadal? Here are 10 reasons why.

He Has History
Time Is On His Side
He's Adding More To His Game
He Matches Up Well With The Rest
Nadal & The Injury Bug
His Defensive Style Can Be Frustrating
Closing In On Federer
Playing With Confidence
Red Hot Right Now
Can Exploit Nadal's Weakness
