And FYI the courts in the previous matches were watered in the fifth set. Why the heck wasn't it watered at the beginning of the fifth set? The court was clearly not upto par in the fifth. Absolutely pathetic officiating if I've ever seen any. Hilariously unbelievable.
As if this is not enough,Novak got a time violation while he was serving at deuce at an absolutely critical juncture of the match in the 5th set(think it was the 8th game,Novak was serving at 4-3) which possibly spoilt his concentration and probably led to that rash overhead. In contrast,Nadal who is a repeat offender got a point penalty when he was serving at 5-1 in the third when it absolutely didn't hurt him at all.
Nadal also called a ball out in the third game of the 3rd set which landed in and Pascal Maria called it out when hawkeye showed the ball was clearly in which resulted in Novak getting broken and eventually losing the set. So,Nadal cheated there, he should just hand his trophy to Pascal,they could both go on a cruise together for a job well done.
Sorry, Novak got robbed any unbiased person can see this,end of story.
Novak fumbled numerous overheads and actually planted himself into the net like a newbie and you have the audacity to say that he was cheated and deserved to win? He also hit 13 winners to Nadal's 22 in the final set so again, how did he deserve to win?
Just to show you what a "friend" Pascal Maria has been to Nadal historically:
And anyway, wouldn't the establishment(and especially the FO guys) want to go against another Nadal win in FO? Surely a career slam for Djokovic would be a more interesting story for the ATP than ANOTHER Nadal RG win.
