Djokovic got more conservative in his game as time passed whereas in 2008 he was the type to swing for fences.

A guy willing to hit it out of the park combined with a guy who was willing to chase and counterpunch all day long made for some great tennis.

I would also recommend their Queens match or earlier matches in IW/Miami. There was a Canada encounter that was decent as well.

Funny stat:
Djokovic is the guy with the most career wins against Nadal.
