Video: Djokovic's match-ending point against Wawrinka

by: Ed McGrogan January 20, 2013

How do you beat someone who's playing their greatest match? With a series of great shots. That's what was required of Novak Djokovic on Monday morning (Melbourne time) against Stanislas Wawrinka, who at times looked ready to defeat the two-time defending champ. But as he's done before, Djokovic outlasted an in-form opponent inside Rod Laver Arena, this time in the fourth round.

Watch here as Djokovic, who rallied from a break of serve down in the fifth set, is pushed to the limit—and then pushed there again—before his uncanny defense-to-offense combination prevails. With this winner, the Serb secured a 1-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 12-10 victory and a quarterfinal match with Tomas Berdych:
