    my theory is that Nadal would have lost to Djoker yesterday and now it has been suspended until today.

    Nadal will win in 5 sets.

    Counter-theory. Djokovic escaped friday the 13th. He would have beaten Nadal yesterday and will continue that today.

    Djokovic will win in 4 or 5.

    Djokovic will win this and all the slams till he gets the GOAT tag! He played really well against Nadal yesterday to lead 2-1. Congratulations Djokovic on Wimbledon 2018.

    Yeah like you guys used to say all the time (Djokovic is FOR SURE winning 18 slams!).

    Stop with this stupid bipolar crap and just appreciate he is playing good tennis again.

    My theory is that Djokovic dodged a bullet yesterday. Nadal was tightened and scared in first set, old ghosts hounting him I guess, but in second and third he was better player. I still don't know how Novak managed to pull off third set. Oh and I got impression Djokovic looked more tired than Nadal at the end of third.

    Sad to see certain Djokovic fans who hid and would hardly post for a year or more crawl out of the woodwork as Novak appears to be in real Slam contention again. :(

    3rd set was equal in points won btw, Nadal did have a slightly higher dominance ratio, though. A clutch escape from Djokovic (4-4 0-30 and three SPs in the breaker), but not so much against the run of play. Which is good, since that means he can reasonably believe he's playing better than Nadal, a positive for confidence.
