Disgusting stuff, Stanislas should've won today but the courts and umpiring is rigged to prevent clowns like Djokovic from ever losing a match before SF.
No, Novak should've won way earlier, he gave Stan many easy misses on Stan's serve. Many second serve returns he dumped at the net, played too aggressive when he didn't need to, too passive when he had to. That point in tie-break, 6-5 on Stan's serve, he had him so wide on the right side only to bash the ball 5 meters long when he had open court. Stan played great but a Novak wasn't very good. That's why Stan was so close.

Btw Federer said it's playing a tiny bit faster this year and I believe him, he is always very vocal about court speed.
