This match has been built up since even before the draw was made.

Now the Career Slam v La Decima hype is reaching ludicrous levels.

Will this match be a 5 set epic or a damp squib beatdown?

It depends only on Nadal whether it will go into 5 sets. If he fights very hard and his game clicks it will.
Otherwise it will be a beatdown.

The match has been hyped because many people expect this to be where Nadal receives only his second RG loss, not because they're expecting a great match. I suspect it will live up to its billing pretty much exactly.

The last few years were more like what you're describing in the OP.

Yeah 29 years old. What a perfect prime year.
Nadal peaked at this strongest slam 3 years before Djokovic at his strongest one.
So expect those 3 years between them, before Novak will burn out or decline...

Yes with Djoker as the force of good Pac and Nadal as the force of evil Mayweather. Sadly evil will win again.
