It is going to be difficult to maintain this level of play for Nadal. It takes a ton of energy to get back on even ground, and imagine Djoker will close it out here at the end of the fourth set.

Agreed.

This game could be it.

Novak serves for the championship.

5 of 6 on break points. The antithesis of federer who is usually like 4 of 20 against Nadal.

Nadal without the stamina or firepower to hang around in rallies. Two points to gold.

Djokovic is your Wimbledon Champion.

Now for a prediction. Novak Djokovic will never lose another match to Rafa Nadal.

As a Rafa fan this blows, but congrats to Novak on an amazing tournament and year. He's definitely the number one player in the world right now, and played as such today.

Well, let me qualify that statement by saying that Nadal has the uncanny ability to add major components to his game. He needs to learn and get a feel for when to come in behind his groundstrokes. He has nice touch at net, but he has to put himself in position to hit those volleys. He'll never beat Djokovic in a baseline derby.

It's funny because Djokovic is going to end up being the keeper of Federer's grand slam record. He's the one standing in the way of Nadal getting there.

Love Rafa! He loses with class (and doesnt cry ). I do agree it's a great time for men's tennis though. Adding Djokovic to the mix sure makes things interesting from now on.

Djokovic is due for a makeover.

Federer got his in '06, Nadal got his in '09, and now it's Djokovic's turn. Get rid of that ugly ill-fitting hat, get a hair-stylist, a bandana, and some nice duds.

He's no longer a regular guy. He's better than all of us!

Tacchini has been dressing him atrociously. He looks like crap. Get his hair longer with some curls, maybe a goutee, a bandana, some henley styled tops and matching shoes. And a stylized warmup jacket. Maybe some breakaway pants.
