Re: AO R4: Djokovic warriors past Wawrinka 1-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7(5), 12-10
Apart from Wawa's horrific choke in set 2, this was an incredible match and Stan really gave it all out there. He won't get any sleep tonight though. He had multiple chances to grab this match, especially at 4-4 on Djokovic's serve... he had 40-15* and at least 2 more break points after that.
Hats off to Nole though. What a fighter he is.
Nole's future opponents can be encouraged, however - he is VERY beatable.
Berdych next. Could be a cracker that one too.
Tea of truth:
Nadaltards in 2014:
We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
Nadal is by far the most naturally talented player of all time and that is the reason his stay at the top is a lot longer than players like Federer etc were able to do.
