Roland Garros: Can Anyone Stop Novak?

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic has done it again.

Today he won two sets in his interrupted third round match against No. 25 Juan Martin del Potro and moved on to the fourth round. The end result was a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 win for Djokovic over the tough Argentine. Djokovic is now a perfect 40-0 in 2011 and seems unstoppable.

Next up for Djokovic is the Frenchman No. 13 Richard Gasquet, who although is a decent player, shouldn't be a problem for the unbeaten Serbian who is on a collision course to meet either No. 7 David Ferrer or No. 3 Roger Federer in the semifinals.

On another note, World No. 1 Rafael Nadal breezed through his third round match against unseeded Antonio Veic winning 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 and is on a collision course to meet World No. 5 and two-time runner-up Robin Soderling in the quarterfinals before a possible match-up with World No. 4 Andy Murray in the semifinals.

So a lot needs to happen before we get the highly anticipated Nadal vs. Djokovic Final for all the marbles.
