The Best Shots From the Epic Fourth Round Djokovic vs. Wawrinka Australian Open Match

Every grand slam seems to have one match that people can't stop talking about for the rest of the tournament. For the 2013 Australian Open, last night's fourth round match-up between world no. 1 Novak Djokovic from Serbia and 15th seed Stanislas Wawrinka from Switzerland may have been it. The match started off on a high for Wawrinka, who took the first set and the lead in the second, but then Djokovic hit back and proved why he's the world's best. After many exciting rallies, serves and shots, the match went for more than five hours, finishing at 1.41 a.m., with Djokovic's victory after five sets. Following the win Djokovic ripped his shirt off and told commentator Jim Courier, "[Wawrinka] deserved equally to be the winner of this match . . . he showed his quality, he was the aggressive player on the court. I was just hanging in there trying to fight."
