Supreme down the line backhand from Nole and we're at 1-1.

Good serve from Djokovic to start things off. 15-0

When Nadal hits his slice down the line, it almost forces Djokovic to go crosscourt with his backhand. And that means Nadal forehand hammering time. 15-15

Nadal overcooks a backhand return. He went after it, missed it by a bit

Again Djokovic has Nadal scrambling and his footwork stumbles and hooks a forehand wide. 30-30 Djokovic is a mess

Big serve and a putaway forehand makes it 40-30

Down the line backhand winner makes a hold

Nadal is starting to leave some balls short. Djokovic must do more. Channel his inner Steve Darcis

Djoker with a digging forehand on the run and Rafa can't make the volley. 0-30

The Nadal slice is opening up his forehand. But Djokovic is at least putting his ba down the middle, not giving Nad any angles.

Nadal hits a big forehand down the line but Djokovic with a pass that Nadal cannot volley. 0-30

Poor attempt from Nole to come up to the net and Rafa makes the easy pass for deuce.

Nadal with a slice and Djokovic tries to go up the line and predictably it is long. Nadal has turned into Steffi Graf here

Second serve from Nadal... Djokovic hits a short approach shot and Nadal passes him. Deuce

Djokovic's feet fail him and McEnroe puts out how rooted he is at times behind the baseline ad Nadal

Big return and Nadal cannot find the forehand down the line. Deuce

Nadal with an unreturnable. Ad Nadal. Second serve. Djokovic takes a cut at it and it is week wide

Down the line forehand.

That is all I need to type

McEnroe points out that Djokovic should go to his own slice when Nadal slices. That is sound advice, except that the man that went to two hands at age 7 never developed an effective slice. Long live the one-hander!

Maybe it was a flashback to the fifteen other passes he's hit like that this match.

Haha.

Again he tried to come in and Rafa almost made another pass. Nole got lucky there.

Djokovic with a strong hold, which is a good sign after he pissed away his opportunities in Nadal's opening service game

2-1

Again Djokovic let's Nadal get away with a series of short balls and Nadal with a crazy angled backhand winner. 30-0

Nadal is now painting the lines with angles and following it in. 40-0 Djokovic pounds a second serve long

2-2

Djokovic, even on that netted return, even a half step slow getting forward. Those are unsure steps.

Djokovic paints the line with a forehand winner. 30-0

Nadal just picks a ball up off the baseline and forehand down the line. What a sick shot. 30-15

Nadal sends a ball long. Nadal is leaving some balls shorts and Djokovic is not stepping up and taking control. Slice serve ace holds.

3-2. Djokovic needs to make a move here
