Djokovic keeps the pressure on, but Nadal holds to go 4-2 to Djokovic.
Anything could happen but for now,  the momentum remains with Djokovic.  Nadal has to shift up a gear, and do something about that body language.  Easy to say for me - it must be tough out there.

Nadal is totally outplayed by Djokovic in this third set. Djokovic leads 2-1 in this match.

Well, this is majestic stuff from Djokovic. What serenity & poise. Thus far, in these last 2 sets, he has effectively dismantled Nadal's game.  Nadal, the consummate fighter, must retain his belief. Without it, this will be over in 4.

Nadal needs to be aggressive during rally especially his backhand. The problem is his backhand is not good as Djokovic. Djokovic's short cross-court forehand and backhand down the line really makes a lot of pressure to Nadal's weak backhand.

It is not enough. He also need to figure out his 1st serve back and he needs to serve to Djokovic's body.

BABBLELOT - have you put matchsticks in your eyes & / or dosed up on coffee?   :)

Now the pressure on Nadal's serve.

He holds. 1-1 in the 4th set.

Might be a repeat season for Djokovic in 2012; if he continues at this level of play!

Are we at the point yet where this is the same familiar inevitability of a Fed-Rafa match?
