On Friday, September 11th , 2009, world no.4 Novak Djokovic visited the New York Stock Exchange. He joined Tuesday’s Children child Christopher Quakenbush and his mother Traci Viklund on the podium. They rang The Closing Bell in remembrance of September 11th.
No.4 seed Novak Djokovic defeated world no.10 Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in four sets 7-6(2), 1-6, 7-5, 6-2 in 3 hours and 5 minutes on Arthur Ashe on Wednesday to advance into his third consecutive semi-finals at the US Open (hard, 21,6 million dollars).
There were ample cheers Monday. Novak revived his trademark imitations, replicating John McEnroe, and McEnroe, at Djokovic’s request, came down from the broadcast booth – in his dress pants and dress shirt – to hit with the Serb. Djokovic signed numerous autographs afterwards.
Before Saturday, Patrick Palombo had never been to a tennis match in his young life.
