    A few months after claiming his maiden title, 19-year-old Djokovic [22] collects another trophy, this time indoors, which is a sign he can adapt to different conditions making slight corrects in his game-style. The Serb trailed 4-6, 0:1* against Melzer [48] when began to control the final outcome. The teenager had to save break points in two different games of the decider. “Today, it was again a tough one and I didn’t start well,” Djokovic said. “He was a set and a break up. At that point he was playing really well. I don’t know how but I managed to come back and take his serve again and at this point his game and energy level went down and I was able to win the title.” Djokovic finished the event with a powerful serve, he was already able to make a 210 kph delivery.

    Djokovic’s route to his 2nd title:
    1 Nicolas Mahut 6-2, 6-3
