Is Djokovic now fitter than Nadal?

Novak had a day off after his epic semi-final.
Rafa had two days after a routine job taking out TMF.
Everyone thought, if this match went to 5 sets, Nadal would win. It seemed that way too.

Then from nowhere, Novak fights his dizziness and comes out blazing and defeats 'the fittest player on the planet'.

When Nadal defeated Verdasco and Federer back to back, everyone hailed him. Why not show Novak the same respect now.

Novak is mentally and physically stronger than Nadal.

I still think Rafa's fitter. Nole is just a much better tennis player.

We will see at Roland Garros, in the greatest and most physically horrifying match of all time.

Re: Is Djokovic now fitter than Nadal?

I think the fifth set was decided in the mental aspect. Nadal seemed fresher and really determined, I suppose those 6 loses in a row just came on top at some point in his mind and Djokovic took this match over.

Nole has bigger heart, balls and games than Rafa.

Re: Is Djokovic now fitter than Nadal?

Nadal is on the defence more often and probably exerts even more energy.

At nearly six hours of play with so much tension, their heads must be dizzy but Novak endured better than Nadal; he was not spent the way many predicted might happen. i'm actually stunned he took the title.

Cap it off with the irony of Nadal's prematch comment over Djokovic.

As much as I dislike Nadal, there is no one fitter than him and his fat ass. Not even Nole.

Re: Is Djokovic now fitter than Nadal?

Poll results Come on guys.
Probably a joke votes as answer to a joke thread.

Nadal is light years in front of Djoker what fitness in concerned. Djoker collapsed today at 3-4 in the final set and looks half dead many times on court while Nadal just takes a deep breath and he is OK.
Not to mention the amount of retirements he had...he is fitter now, but still not as fit as Rafzilla and noone on tour is.
