Court seems just fast enough that a outstretched Djokovic can't quite reach it.

Errors creeping in on SW's serve at 1-2. Ad ND.

But ND overhits it & it's back to deuce. SW's fist serve is a liability but he won the point & game after a mediocre second serve.

It's noteworthy that ND can't capitalise on the poor first serve of SW, and that although he put a lot of pressure on SW in that 4th game, he couldn't convert his break points. 

What an exquisite backhand from SW to take it to 30-30 on ND's serve.

EDIT : deuce.  Another beautiful backhand from SW to get the ad.  But then over hits a shot to go to deuce.  This is just wonderful play. Ad to SW. And some exquisite shots to get the break.  SW 3-2 & to serve next.

The 2nd serve thing is mystifying to say the least.

SW maintaining his focus & belief. Holds well. And ND getting a warning for coaching from the stands. It seems desperate times call for what amounts to cheating.   

ND holds serve.  SW to serve 4-3 up.

Come on SW. Just keep going. And serve well!

Big mistake: check out how much topspin Nole is trying to put on his FH. He looks like Rafa.

ND breaks back & holds with confidence with a glorious shot hit cc.   

It's back on serve but SW looking off the boil.   

SW 4-5 & serving.

That miss by Wawri after 22 rallies our commentator just said 'this is why tennis is the best sport, this is tennis'  :rofl_2:
