Two matches in a row, 2 chokes in a row. Nole escapes by the skin of his teeth TWICE

First Murray blowing tons of opportuntities in the 5th set on those break point chances. Don't me started with Nadal. Amazing no one can beat this guy despite so many chances to do so. Its not like Djoker is acting "Federesque" and blowing out people from the onset like Fed used to do. So many chances there to take this guy and no one can do it despite a plethora of chances

You better thank the Djoker. Nadal has Sampras's slam total in his sight. I for one would not like to see Nadal tie Sampras.

Nole did some chocking as well, but the minute Rafa missed that easy BH at 30-15 on his own serve against Nole at 4-2 in the 5th set, I knew it was over.

Djoko did a fine job of choking the 4rth set himself.

Yeah it has nothing to do with Nole raising his game in crisis points at all does it

He smashed a return winner MP down against Federer, he saved the BPs against Murray at 5-5 with a crushing DTL forehand and service winners, and went into beast mode against Rafa today

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Hows that? You can pretty much write Nadal off if Nole is around. Nadal has no belief he can beat Nole anymore. Nadal will be lucky to win even 11 slams much less get to 14.

Djoker has ironman mental strength right now.

I may actually to start rooting for Fed to try and dethrone the Serb. Possibly through blowing him off the court.. Doesn't look like the other two can mentally hang when the chips are down.

I don't want to see the same script last year with Nadal-Nole and its definitely headed that way again
