^^ This is the best post in a thread full of absolute nutters. This is exactly how I felt watching it in the moment. Wawrinka was in amazing form during the first set, dictating play from the baseline and not letting Nadal take any initiative in the rallies. Mixed it up superbly with some excellent serve and volley plays when Nadal was returning serve 5 metres behind the baseline. Was slapping miraculous winners for fun. Nadal's movement and serve were not hindered one iota.

We then move into the second set and it begins remarkably similar to the first. Wawrinka gets the break and then all of a sudden Nadal pulls up after a serve. Proceeds to take a MTO as soon as possible and leaves the court. Now we get to the part of whether or not this back injury was legit. Only Nadal and his team will ever know but with his track record I couldn't take him seriously and the crowd obviously felt the same way. Usually a grand slam final crowd are not the most knowledgeable spectators out there so you know it's pretty obvious when they reacted the way they did. This was all psychological from Nadal. We've seen it time and time before, most notably during his 7 month "injury" break in 2012 straight after winning RG. He skipped the AO then even though he could have easily played it. He is afraid of losing and people doubting him and that he could actually lose a match while healthy to a superior opponent on the night. The crowd booing him affected him significantly. He was all over the place mentally, wondering how he was going to explain everything. People have to remember that Nadal is a prototype, created and designed by Uncle Toni and co from day one. Every single move in his career has been calculated from day one. The time wasting, making his opponent wait before the match starts in the locker room and before the coin toss, the whole shebang with the water bottles and rituals before he serves. When all of this doesn't work he turns to extreme measures and I think he was found out publicly tonight and he didn't know how to react to that at all.

As I expected, after he got through that third set, he upped the ante in the fourth and his rapid movement returned for the most part. Started running down balls he wasn't getting close to in the second set. The intensity and rituals before he served all returned. Thankfully Wawrinka was able to recover from all of these mind games and close out the match in style. It's just a shame that Wawrinka's first slam win will be overshadowed for the most part due to Nadal's antics. You could see how subdued he was with his celebrations after the final shot. Didn't know what to do at all.

Anyway, fantastic to see a fresh face with a grand slam title. Also great to see someone break the top four stranglehold as well. Hopefully he can maintain this level throughout the season and for years to come. We'll now wait and see what happens with Nadal but I have no doubts he will be back and firing on all cylinders for the commencement of the clay season.
Thank you for making the summary of what really happened I was too lazy to make for those who missed the match. Spot on

Looking forward to Federer fans shoving those tears down everyone's throat when Nadal had a legitimate reason for complaint, unlike their man.

You missed a great roast.

First Stan was destroying Dull, then Dull took an MTO like usual. After that, he pretended like he's injured and then surprised Stan when he was really at 100% anyway. Stan lost the set but increased his level to win

Say what you want about Federer playing Baghdatis and Gonzo in AO finals... But at least he won them

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
