Nadal takes first set 7-5

Both look a little off

Novak seems to have taken the initiative for the moment. Closing in on the 3rd set - but he was in the same position in the 2nd and Nadal broke before being broken himself to lose the 2nd!! One thing for sure Nadal will fight to the last shot so this match is still very much up in the air!!

EDT: Yikes Novak broke Nadal to love to take the 3rd - he is on a roll now and seems to be :kickass: Let's see what Nadal can do in the 4th.

Final set!

C'mon Nole!

Why don't I warm to Rafa? :confused: Anyhow, he's such an amazing competitor

And into the 5th we go - this is turning into one of the great finals :watch: How lucky have we been in the past few years in the mens game to have had some amazing grand slam finals :encore:

Aussies schedule Australian open finals so late that Australian can't watch it, European events are bad enough.

We have been treated by the mens game in recent years. I remember the dullness of the 90's and early norties, when all you (seemed) to need was a big serve. Thank god those days (thanks to slower courts I think) seem over.

Novak saves BP and takes it with a winner. Drops to the ground, now he's shirtless and screaming!
What a match!

That was an epic match - absolutely amazing play from both men :encore: Just shy of 6 hours - that is nearly 11 hours of play that Novak did in the semi and final - amazing.

Congrats Nole! Marathon man.

Though I wanted Nole to win, I do feel for Rafa. He looks sick. You can tell he wanted that BAD.

Yeah, same.

Novak playing for so long in both the semi and final. Wow.

This is one of those times I wish there were ties in tennis, though of course then we wouldn't get the intensity. But truly both these guys are champions, even though there's only one winner of the match.

I wonder if this loss was destroy Nadal. I am not sure psychologically how he can come back from this. It is his 7th straight loss in a final to Djokovic, and he put 150% into it and came so close.
