Nole the great is about to fall, I said he would win this tourney before when he machine gunned Harrison, but now I don't think he will after this performance, if he keeps playing like this, then Berdych surely can beat him, Almagro can, Ferrer can, Tsonga can, Federer can and Murray can.
Nole was not amazing throughout but this is partially due to Wawrinka being so aggressive obviously gets you off balance.Stan played as well as I've ever seen so I think either A or B will happen, A: Novak will be tired and his form won't be entirely there and Berdych will steamroll him, or B: the battle with in form Wawrinka is just a great test of wills and Novak goes on to fight his way to another Australian Open. obvious options, but I don't see him as being in bad form like you imply. he's obviously not playing perfectly BUT there's no reason to think Djokovic won't be able to fight through Berdych. the odds that Berdych plays as well as Stan did in my mind are very low
