Djokovic had very little answer to that for the whole clay court season until the rain came in RG, and very little again the next day. Nadal figured him out. Djokovic now needs to find the answers when they next play.
I wouldn't say Djokovic played that bad the next day...they were both holding serve until Djokovic DF'd the match.
