Sweet revenge for Nole. Showed great spirit througout the match. As for Federer....... No words... Gutsy fight in the final set is probably the only plus point he takes from this.

Clutch play from Nole though. Better not roll over for Nadal tomorrow.

Djokovic played out of his fucking MIND!

No way can he beat Nadal tomorrow, though. Shame he was on last. Still, I hope he can prove me wrong.

Pathetic display by Federer. No point in hiring Anacone, when he resorts to his old style passive returning during big points.

Nadal controlled this match from start to finish. NID Roger would lose after Nadal won. Too afraid of embarrassing himself further.

Yay Novak you took out this clown. :bigclap:

2 MPs wasted. Poor from Roger and now Novak is tired. Nadal's luck in this tourney has been unbelievable.
Djokovic has one shot of saving tennis from dying tomorrow.

Unbeliveble serving from Roger He coulnd't put a first serve in to save his life.What the fuck was up with that passive play on match points? He got 2nd serves and he only pushed, and pushed!

Jaz

Roger didn't deserve to win, 2 MP's lost.

Roger Federer serve? Pathetic. He needs to sort that serve out or Federer is finished.

Congrats Nole.
I'm disappointed, but he obviously was the better player.
Man, I'm sad for Fed.
Good luck tomorrow Rafa!!!!

I wanted Rafa to have the chance to beat Roger, but truth be told, I like Djokovic so much more. Hopefully the final will be just as good as this fantastic semi. :hearts:

I can't wait for Roger's bitchy, petulant press conference! :rolls: :haha:

Great match, by both.

Just insane tempo during the rallies at times. Some ridiculious angles, shots. Novak won very deservedly, great and courageous play. But I think Rafa will win tomorrow.

The worst case scenario happened. A 4 hour 5 setter. So Nadal wins his slam by playing a tired Novak. Better than beating Roger I guess. This Roger would have lost to Nadal. The first 1st was great. The 20 minutes of last set were great. The rest were sh**

Great play from Novak, but terrible pushing from Fed and going back to the slice return :o

What a gift to Nadal, tennis is truly dead and the schedulers at the USO killed it :fiery:

Nole played great and deserved the victory, that fifth set was full of drama and both made some awesome shotmaking

Rafa getting his CGS tomorrow by not beating his biggest rival, like Roger did last year :)

Federer played poorly, but his poor tennis is better than most players' best. It's the problem he has after having played beautifully for so long. He just seems ordinary now.

Novak played good tennis. He beat on Federer when he had to do it, and broke him when it really counted. I was impressed. I didn't think he had anything left.

This. Federer had the match an his raquet like almost always but played to passive when it mattered most.

Great match overall, tough.

I must admit, I'm really happy for Nole. he deserved it. How he played in the 5th was cool.
I will root so bad for Djokovic in the final.

GO NOLE!!!!!!

Hell yes!!! Djokovic showed incredible heart coming through those two match points and ending up winning the match. Incredible play in that final set. Djokovic's forehands were scary towards the end of that match. I'm giddy at that result! :D The Djokovic of 07/08 is BACK!!!

Don't sell Federer short, he played a great match with some great tennis. This match could ahve gone either way tbh. So glad Nole won though, we know that we're gonna get a US Champion who's never won before! Awesome.

People are talking as if this loss erases everything Roger has done in the last decade

for haters: I want to see YOUR fave(s) competing like Roger does at the age of 29 ;)

Great fight by Novak. Hopefully even if he loses tomorrow, he reverts to being a big challenger for slam events from now on. Rogi is incredible. Even when he isn't playing his best, it's so damn hard to beat him.

Also, big props again to Roger. The reason he plays so many more 5 setters these days is because he has a lot more bad days than he used to. And still he's so freaking tough to beat. This man has a lot of heart and he showed it out there again today. Absolutely no shame in losing to a great up and coming player who played fantastically on the day.

Yeah, Djokovic showed a lot of guts, especially towards the end of the fifth set. Federer, on the other hand, pushed the ball back when returning serve. The same is true after Federer took the lead in the first and third sets. Federer should have pressed on, but collapsed. Djokovic was there to pick up the pieces. For stepping it up when it mattered, Djokovic deserved the victory.

I can't understand what the fuck's wrong with him. I mean you can explain the poor serving thinking he had a stiff back or some other minor problem before the match, but the way he played those 2 mp was attrocious. He had 2 weak 2nd serves to aim at, and he just sliced the ball back in play no presseure what so ever on Djokovic who just kept on attaking. The same thing happened at 30-40 in the last game.
It's the third time this year he has lost from match points up.

Fed was second-fiddle to Roger tonight as Nole cashed in on all the big points when he needed to:worship:...very exciting and great shot-making in the last set...spellbounding till the very end:boxing:...Nole deserved this win....too many loose errors on Fed's side over 50 some errors:eek:....can't advance against the world's #1 with those stats!:help:
