Hmm, the wrist wasn't bothering him from what I saw. How can you say that? Not the first time Nole has struggled against big servers! He lost to Isner twice in the past 2 years

Novak returns way too aggressively against them, imo. Murray and Federer focus on getting it back and starting the point and letting their superior rally skills take over.

He was shaking his wrist during the match, I saw him doing that a few times.

Respect to Raonic who played the match of his life. Nole i don't know how you got through that one but you did rest up and play better in the finals

Dedicated to the clowns on MTF who calls Raonic a serve bot. Clearly much more than that.

Nole wasnt that bad actually, its just Raonic was goating for 2 sets, by goating i mean servebotting and ballbashing... Djokovic strong favorite in the final

Djokovic fiddled with his forearm ever so slightly in that third set but he should be ok.

Really depends on how he feels tomorrow morning

Novak's only strategy for today was standing 3m behind the baseline counting on Milos' poor movement.
Bet he won't repeat that mistake again.

Milos was the better player for most of the match, he had his chances, he didn't take them, he paid the price.

You play, you fight but in the end, Novak always wins.

Lots of respect for Novak and I hope he wins the title now.

djokovic's aggressive return..the way he over compensates against big servers is why think ferrer has the better return. When its on there's really nothing the big servers can do against ferrer

Amazing. Did not see a single one of the usual users calling a choke yet. Oh wait this is not a Nadal won match! Nevermind.
