Djokovic will be extra aggressive on Nadal's second serve. Anything else but a quality high kick serve on Djokovic's BH will be attacked with animalistic intensity by the Earth Mightiest Warrior. Overall look for much more aggressive Nole than anything before against Nadal on clay. ;)
The problem with this approach is that Nadal is the master of absorbing aggression on clay. Novak will have to keep it up for 3-5 sets.

It has to be smart tennis. Opportunistically aggressive, and ready to go toe to toe playing. defense. Just like Diego did for about a set and half yesterday.

Had tickets for the match today, but gave it to a friend because of the Covid nonsense tests that the RG organization imposed to the people attending. The only thing intruding onto my nose is a hairy p*ssy

Spot on so far tbh. Djokovic has been mighty strong against Nadal's 2nd serves.

If Djokovic wins this one, and I hope he does, then he has beaten a very good version of Nadal on clay.

No one can deny that.

Nadal looked a lot more uncomfortable than we thought he would be.

That first set was a harbinger. From 5-0 up to 6-3, Novak the cool customer in tough moments really applied pressure to Rafa’s serve, BH and even went after the FH

Where did I say it didn't count? I said the complete opposite. Djokovic deserved to win. He's the better player. I've always said that.
Djokovic deserved it-but Rafa WAS injured
In other words, there should be an asterisk. You know very well what you meant by this, let's not act naive.

Here's what I wrote. Don't pick and choose quotes to further lies.
"I suspected Djokovic would win -I had him slight favourite before the match -and he was THE DESERVED VICTOR, but Nadal was clearly injured"

so, to be clear: I suspected Djokovic would win, he was the better player for most of the match, he deserved his victory, he would have won if Nadal was injured or not, but Nadal was clearly injured.

Happy now?

The funniest thing was the 1st set of '21 was almost a carbon copy of '20.

In '20, I felt if something clicked, Novak got into rhythm and won the 3rd set, anything could still happen! Nadal winning the 3rd set of '20 and ending the match, was crucial!

Well folks, part IX has happened.

How do you rank the nine matches that have happened. Where does this one rank among the others?

I still think Novak won this match in the first set by extending it. If he had thrown in the towel and lost with a bagel I don't think he would have pulled the match out.
