The Streak Continues, Part II

Yes, Novak Djokovic looks as crazy as a Glenn Beck fan who just listened to Fox News call Obama a socialist in this shot from today's Italian Open in Rome, but it's fitting, he's on one, very crazy win streak. Djokovic narrowly defeated Andy Murray in the semifinals just a few minutes ago, after being two points from defeat at one point in the third set, and now his win streak for the year stands at 36-0. He's just six wins away from tying John McEnroe's all-time year-opening win streak of 42-0 in 1984. The only bad news is that now, Djokovic, has to play Rafael Nadal, the best clay court player in the world, in the finals of the tournament less than 24 hours from now.
