Yeap, this is by far a the best he played against Djoko since 2010. We can draw many positive from it. I am glad I missed this 4:2 30:15 (i was in the other room at that moment) otherwise I could have broken the TV. The serve I think was very decent, Djoko made lots of good and lots of lucky returns. Rafa's ROS wasn't that bad but probably it was because Djoko's serve probably wasn't that great today. The big disappointment was probably the BH. But I am sure he will work on it in the off-February. He narrowed the gap with Djoko one way or another, let's see if he can build on that. I remain very, very positive after this final. It could have been far, far worse. Like straight set demolition job.
Keep supporting Rafa, guys! He needs you at least 5 more years!
