match going just as I (probably everyone else) predicted. Nadal is too strong and consistent.
Novak should be lucky to get a set if he plays like this.

His volleys are laughable so far. Everybody say he has problems with smashes, but if he had better volleys he would finish the points before the smash.

I'm sure Nole will wake up now.

I'm surprised that he has decided to play like this now. Really baffling. The guy was the best who could get Nadal wide on the backhand and drill a down-the-liner like saying good morning.

Not going down the line these days. It is odd. Must have lost confidence in the shot :dunno:

What a superb shot to hold his opening game in the second set by Djokovic.  I hope he can go up a level, otherwise this will be over in straights.

EDIT:  Why are the crowd booing Nadal?     And surely Djokovic isn't going to give away his break point?

Good!

Djokovic thinks he's playing Murray. Letting Rafa pull the trigger 1st during long rallies. 2-0 Rafa

Someone with telekinetic powers, please tell Djokovic :
Sending the ball to the right side of the court is not the same as pushing him wide.

Until he gets broken in the second, I won't be putting my cows on that. However the winner is certain.

Djokovic really looks like player without confidence out there. Some nice placement and then when it matters he blows it or send it short.

Medwatt, That's just the long rallies Rafa has won because he was the aggressor. Nole finally got one.
