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.
