That was an outstanding battle. Both players have their good periods in the match, both deserve to be praised for the effort they made. Stan was really inspired and had his chances, but Djokovic is a beast in such matches.
After these 5 hours of play, Djoko may not be in best form against Berdych, which could give the Czech some little advantage. Who knows?
outstanding battle is a good way to describe it! Stan did seem possessed at moments, it was great to see such confidence and belief in him. and yes I agree, matches that go the distance Djokovic is like from another planet, programmed to never stop giving it his all
honestly I see Berdych winning that match just because you have to figure Novak may be a bit drained and two heavy hitters in a row is a tough task. originally I did not see Djokovic's draw as very tough, but Wawrinka in this form followed by Berdych is a bit of a challenge
