Re: The Clay Goat defeats Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4

The match meant way too much to both players for the quality to be high.

But Rafa was much better at handling the ups-and-downs of their sets, including the vicissitudes that come with feeling the nerves of chasing history, and knowing that this is a significant entry in what may become a record-setting rivalry.

Rafa also proved to be the better micro-adjuster to opponent-tactics. He was moving in and out of at least three game plans. Even on a stroke as simple as the serve. That unsettled Djokovic from the first game to the last. Like Murray he never got a handle on the return, and without that slight advantage winning three sets off Rafa on clay isn't just a mountain; it's the entire Himalayas.

Meanwhile: Congrats Rafa on #9 and #14.

Novak can't keep up any momentum, these days.

What a DF to give Nadal the title.

I just can't. :eek:

Kudos to Djokoking for one upping himself on his match point down antics.

Yet another massive choke in a Slam final to Nadal.
Nadal looking like maybe becoming GOAT now, God help us. With the field as it is, there is nothing to stop him from passing Federer in Slams.

Hopefully grass will bring out something new in Chokovic.

I'm sure I wasn't the only one that predicted that DF.

One set up, Nadal not playing well - you blew it, Novak. And will never have a better chance to beat Nadal at RG.

I got 1.80, thanks Nadal. Ridiculous price in all honesty, especially after those SFs.
