French Open 2011: Novak Djokovic Wins Third Set, Roger Federer Leads Two Sets To One

After Roger Federer won the second set of his 2011 French Open semifinal match against Novak Djokovic, it looked like The Joker's incredible winning streak was about to come to g the set an end. That might still be the case, but he's bounced back in incredible fashion, breaking Federer in the second game of the third set and holding onto that break, eventually winning the set 6-3.

This has been an incredibly close match throughout, and whether or not Djokovic makes it tough for Federer in the fourth set, this is probably the match of the year to this point after the Australian Open was devoid of any true epics between elite players. Both Federer and Djokovic are playing at an extremely high level right now and it's been an absolute joy of a match to watch so far.

Stay tuned to this StoryStream for more match updates from Day 13 at Roland Garros.
