What's there to be butthurt about? Nadal has won this tournament 8 times in a row.
Djokovic was the better player, but you can't deny the fact that Nadal hasn't been playing well all tournament. He has been producing a Tsonga like tally of UE's and that made a big difference in the final. I agree with Nadal that he still needs conditioning and he can still improve.
I think if Nadal was playing at his peak levels the loss would have affected him a lot more, he was gracious with his loss I thought.
