2015 MONTE CARLO: Djokovic Wins 3rd Masters Title of 2015; Now 17-0!

World #1 Novak Djokovic continued his unbeaten streak in 2015 to 17 matches with a surprisingly tough 3-set match over Tomas Berdych 7-5 4-6 6-3 in the finals of the 2015 Monte Carlo Masters 1000 tournament. It was Djokovic's 3rd Masters series title of 2015 the first time anyone has won the first three prestigious titles to start the year, and comes just weeks after Djokovic became the first man to pull off the Indian Wells-Miami double for the 3rd time.

With his win, Djokovic  now has 23 ATP Masters 1000 titles, tying him for #2 on the all-time list, just 4 titles behind Rafael Nadal, who has 6 more Grand Slam titles than he does. Djokovic now has a record lead of 5,460 points over the #2 player, 17-time major champion Roger Federer. 

In 2011, Djokovic amassed a 41-match winning streak and won 5 Masters series titles and 3 Grand Slam tournaments. Could we be seeing a reprise of this performance in 2015?
