Novak Djokovic destroys Rafael Nadal in straight sets, as sports analysts speculate a new era is being ushered in at Roland Garros.By Jay Strubberg | June 3, 2015
There was already something inherently strange about watching Novak Djokovic collide with Rafael Nadal at the French Open ... on a Wednesday ... in the quarterfinals.
Djokovic cruised past the king of clay in straight sets, handing Nadal just his second loss in 72 matches at Roland Garros, snapping a 39-match win streak at the tournament.
Two of the last three years this showdown was reserved for the title match on Sunday. Nadal won both times, and he's won the French Open an astounding nine of the last ten years. Oh, that's also the most French Open singles titles in history.
