Madrid Ballgirl Masters SF: Nadal defeats Djokovic 3-6 7-6 7-6

Toughest clay match for Nadal so far this season.

3 match points saved. First one by a BEASTLY forehand.

What a tie break to end the match.

Just an incredible match. How can you not respect both of them after that? Neither deserved to lose.

Wimbledon final? Pfft, nothing beats a final set TB for drama.

NOLE you truly are the second greatest player of all time.

But NADAL is the greatest player of all time.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Yeah, at least it ended properly.

Not like Verdasco/Nadal..with double fault from Nando.

Great match

Wow what a match....final set tiebreak was amazing.

Novak served out of his mind all match long. He completely deserved to win this....but Nadal is just Nadal. Came up with HUGE shots when he needed to. That's just what he does...and that's why he's the king right now.
