Djokovic was beaten the moment he saw Rafa sprinting back from the coin toss, he always gets so frustrated so soon when Nadal makes some sick points. Come on

However well Rafa is playing, passive pusher shit from the baseline won't get anyone the victory against him. Ask Federer, for instance. ;)

But maybe... I think Djoko was trying to be more aggressive in the recent games I saw from him.

Only two points dropped on second serve in the match for Nadal. Ridiculous statistic against the game's best returner.

Lopez
03-20-2011, 10:04 PM
Djokovic always struggles with hitting into low balls. Can't get speed into those. Usually against Nadal that isn't a problem, however Nadal is hitting his backhand quite flat crosscourt which result in short Djokovic forehands.

Nadal tactically more astute than Federer playing Djokovic.

Giving him a mixture of top spin, flat and slice shots. He is using deep moonballs when out of position and for variety. Sometimes coming to the net behind accelerated shots. Using the body serve well and the wide lefy handed slice serve to the backhand.

Some brilliance from Rafa and some shit from Nole to lose serve there, still if Rafa can't find his first serve he is going to struggle.

rafa_maniac

Total gift from Nole considering how erratic Rafa is right now.

this, djoker feeds off the pace federer puts into his shots, he can't do the same with rafa.

djokovic getting owned by nadull again. things haven't change except for olderer getting older and djokovic taking advantage of it.

if djokovic is so good now, he should be able to beat nadull on a hardcourt. but he's not. he's the same mug he's always been.

I dont remember Nadal making single error against Delpo after being 1-4 down first set, now he is making tons of them.

rafa_maniac
03-20-2011, 10:28 PM
Rafa is fucking awful right now. Travesty for Nole if he can't win this set.

tyruk14
03-20-2011, 10:28 PM
0-30. Another break could be on the cards. Shame, because going by the quality of the first set this match looked like it could be a good one.

Puschkin
03-20-2011, 10:29 PM
nadal is serving 25 %, he should not win this set. Ajde, Novak!

Novak needs to be more proactive behind the second shot. Strike first, strike fast, get into the net and bunt the volley.

Kiedis
03-20-2011, 10:32 PM
26% in Nadal first service :o

if djokovic is so good now, he should be able to beat nadull on a hardcourt. but he's not. he's the same mug he's always been.he is good enough to spank federer and murray but he is up against the best player in the world right now so stop hating.

Almost certain that he wont serve it out.

Nice solid stuff from Nole will do the job nicely. Rafa back to Devvarman levels.

djoker breaks back, the king is not amused...

Ben.
03-20-2011, 10:33 PM
Could feel that error coming from Rafa there, too much pressure for him to end the point. Djokovic has tightened his game up and it is paying dividends right now.

Sonja1989

What is with these serves???

tyruk14
03-20-2011, 10:34 PM
I can't work out whether Nadal is serving like Federer in the fifth set of a grand slam final, or Dementieva on, well, any other day.

rubbERR
03-20-2011, 10:34 PM
I would have already smashed racquet if making that many routine errors if i were professional player, Nadal should do it, playing crappy tennis

Rafa's level of playing has plummeted halfway this set.
Hope he gets his sh*t together again in the 3rd!
