YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!

@The_Order

Hope you're enjoying your day and laughing as hard as you said you would.
Yep still am mate. Federer lost to freaken Anderson after being up 2 sets to 0 at Wimbledon. That's hilarious especially after all the crap us Nadal fans copped for him having Anderson in the US Open final last year. Cop that!!

I don't sulk like Fed fans do, I actually want Novak to win the title now.

Just annoyed at Wimbledon scheduling because he gets no rest, has to go back out there again tomorrow.

Incredible effort from Djokovic after struggling in the recent years. Who would've thought that he would be the one mentally stronger in the fifth set after many atrocious performances and all that against the beast like Nadal...Hats off to him and I hope he wins the final.

The sad thing is that this isn't a final and that one guy had to lose, really feel for Nadal, I absolutely loved his approach today, an aggressive Rafa on the court is a joy to watch. I hope he starts employing these more offensive strategies more in the future, the guy has a potential to be a great all-court player.

Fantastic victory by Djokovic. He's had a torrid two years, but it's good to see him back playing grand slam finals again.

Novak just “saved” tennis but back when he was dominating, he was “feasting” on a “grandpa” and it was a “weak era”
Lets be honest. For both the Fed and Nadal fanbase, Djokovic is needed. Djokovic keeps things in order. Kept Fed from running away with the slam record. Kept Nadal away from reaching Feds slam total. As much as we love/hate him, he is needed.

This is the greatest rivalry in tennis history, look how close the H2Hs are, look how close the matches have been and look at the sinctlallting the tennis has been. I'm so glad Novak went through, but I have to respect Rafa for some GOAT tennis.

That's why people who keep writing off ATG are stupid.

This also shows that ATP is a complete entire sh-t eyesore without the Big 4 and one of the reasons I only watch the Big 4. Matches like these really inspire and get people liking the game.

Yes, a 37-year old Fed who injured himself and clearly played below par.

Has Nadal picked the color for his wheelchair when he's that age already?

Dude this was not enjoyable, I'm shaking for god sake.

How on EARTH did he pull back from 2 15-40s there?

I don't know, but:

YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs
You know it was intense but I enjoyed the battle. The level of tennis that they produce when they play each other is something I've never seen in any other tennis rivalry. To the finals we go!! Woohoo!

Nadal winning Wimbledon would've been a joke.

It actually is a joke that he won this twice before.

Another opportunity wasted and the time is ticking.
He took a set off Fed in 2006, took him to 5 in 2007 and beat him in 2008 and you still don’t have any respect for him?

I got up, and went to the beach halfway through the 5th set. Last night I got up and went to "bed" halfway through the 3rd set.

I will never watch a cliffhanger with Nole....ever.

I think he can dedicate this win to me.
I have been laid up with a foot injury. I have watched every second of Isner Anderson Nadal and Djokovic.
Drunk stoned and sweating.:p

Well Fedal era 2.0 is now over. We will get no Fedal Slam champion first time some USO 16. Yet again it was Djokovic who puts end to the Fedal domination. Great player!

Far too sympathetic for Megatron.

Djokovic did a lot of tactical errors in this game. His tennis is good enough to beat Nadal more clearly on grass. But for some reason he never moved forward when he had Nadal in trouble. So Nadal was able to stay in the rally a lot hitting from impossible positions. Shots that Djokovic could've easily intercepted at the net had he been more attacking oriented.

Nadal #`1 and increases the gap between him and Federer, Djokovic had to win this for clay court losses and its done, next the title.

So happy too! Novak proves he’s in the same league as Fed and Rafa! If he wins tomorrow, he’s on 13 and back! This could set him up for another slam run. He’ll be tough to beat at us open next!

Congrats to Djokovic and all of his fans! Now you (almost) know how emotional AO17 was for a Federer-fan! :D

A tough W18 for Fedal & fans, but hope this give them motivation to keep chasing! A very much deserved final (title;)) for Djokovic after 2 years of struggling!

Uh, Nadal is an all court player. And he's always employed offensive strategies.
