Er...well, he won the first set and almost went a break up in the 2nd. So for the best part of those 2 sets, I would say he was the better player.

I could see nothing in Djokovic's play that Murray couldn't and shouldn't have been able to handle. IMO if he had played like he did in his semi against Fed he would have been holding up his 2nd Slam trophy tonight. But he didn't and so he isn't.

Agreed. His fitness was suspect. Strange, considering he's supposed to be one of the fittest guys on tour. Djokovic definitely won the fitness battle out there today.
