OK b

OK but this match is very much on djokers racket for once. What did you expect after escapes against millman and sandgren + ailments. A clinical display?
I expected the same clutch he showed to save match points.
Lockdown mode,
Or atleast freaking serve out the set while you're at it..

Winning a set can do many wonders. I am not sure if you noticed Djoko raised his game after Fed donated that 4-1 40-0. It was on Fed's racket until 5-4 and he lost his serve. Thats why he lost the first set. Fed blinked.

No matter how much you hate the guy......you all must admit, that the true rivalries these past 10 years are Djoko vs Nadal, and Djoko vs Federer. The Fed vs Nadal rivalry has been WAY over hyped for what it has actually delivered.
Fed-Nadal was not hyped by the results or whatever.It was the joy of game what mattered when they meet. Federer was bringing all the magic shots and Nadal was still catching all this impossible shots anyway.The matches they played between 2006-2010 was just unprecedented.
 
Het, you're sounding more negative than usual. Expect the loss, hope for the best.
The reason is, I expected fed to lose straight away.
Didn't expect to choke bigger than wimby19 finals.
I mean if fed had lost the first set 6-2 it would've not made me angry. Just that he mentally lets it go everytime against djoker makes me negative.

Lol no. Fedal Match ups were only fun for nadal fans and rly post 2008 were just silly
 
Fed came out and gave a great show for the fans during the first set. Ran out of the turbo gas, but still making decent service games. The fan hope and the heart stressache package. Good show. Certainly not the Connors vs. Courier '91 blowout comparison.

I think Djokovic produced much more memorable matches against these two......even just in these past couple of years.......

So frustrating - can't bear to watch third set.

Two awesome points from Novak though - can't stand him for all the defeats of Federer but Jesus that was good.
