Yet Nadal STILL got into a position to serve for the match in four sets, and then ended up winning it in five. If 2011 Djokovic played Nadal, it would have probably have been a bit closer than 2013, with Nadal still getting the win.
How much closer than a 9-7 5th set can it get? You mean like 7-6 6-7 7-6 6-7 20-18?
