Sigh. Nadal wins the 1st set 7-5. Dang...the 1st set was an hour 20 minutes long.

Useless Murray wore out Djokovic. Why couldn't Murray have just rolled over?

Strange match from both. Hitting their normal highs only in flashes, but with many odd lapses of concentration. Especially surprising regarding Nadal, but maybe more expected from Novak since he had those against Murray as well.

It's only a single set. I seem to recall that in the semi-finals someone, his name escapes me at the moment, won the first set against Nadal but then lost the next three. Novak can still turn this around.

Nadal wasn't tired against Fed, Djokovic is tired against Nadal.

Nadal's only lost 1 grand slam match after winning the 1st set, that was back in 2007.

Whew. Djokovic breaks for 6-4 2nd set on a double fault after saving a game point. He was up 5-2 2nd set and 5-3 40-15 on his serve. Dang...the match is 2 hours 26 minutes long.

There. Do you feel better now?

Strange. At 5-3 Djokovic double faulted to give Nadal the break. At 5-4 Nadal double faulted to give Djokovic the break and the set.

A little.

That's a bit odd coming from the two best guys on the Atp.

Linespeople fail. But he broke Nadal anyway, so who cares.

That's a bit of an overstatement...I'm feeling good but not really good.
