From what I've seen of the tournament, Nadal was playing better than Djokovic throughout, so was anyway the firm favourite to win. The win must be good for Nadal's confidence but what surprised me was how rattled he looked in the first set even when he could see Djokovic handing him freebies or simply playing sloppy tennis. Yes, he served well, but his returns lacked bite. I didn't think he was doing anything special on the return games other than keeping the ball in play and I think that had something to do with nerves more than anything else. Any actual pressure from Novak on his serve and he could've crumbled. I'm not sure about the second set but overall, if he won it easily, this should give him confidence for his future matches which may be closer provided Djokovic is playing well.
