Great win by Rafa.  He really needed one on this surface vs his old buddy to fill out the resume.

However, I do not think he has what it takes to beat Novak on these courts.  Nole has been like a cat (as usual), just all over the court getting every ball and making tremendous shots. 

I am going to make a pre-match prediction and though I would love to see Rafa win, I think Djokovic is going to take it in straights!

B Bros fall in match TB to Verdasco/Marrero. :(

Raf v. Nole is off and running.
Nice to see these 2 career staller/gamesmen actually trying to play within the time constraints.  Almost makes it bearable (and valid). ;-()
CONK da ball!!!

Still, the chair ump was perhaps a little generous. He probably couldn't afford to anger the crowd.

It was a good close final that to me was just decided by Djokovic's serve. Many great points including that one that took Djokovic to 5-3, I think it was, in the first set.  :))

At times I thought that all that CHAMPIONSHIP POINT  display was going to blow a fuse.  :scared:

Missed the singles final.
Will have to catch it on TC reruns.

I don't understand your last statement re: CHAMPIONSHIP POINT display. :Confused:

You have to see it to know what I mean.  :shocking: It seems to me that the display just belabors the obvious. But perhaps some of the spectators need to be told.  ..-)

As you know, I have a preference for keeping things quiet and orderly.  :a) :a) :a) :good:

Just caught the replay, not a bad match.
 
Djokovic leads the H2H in finals against Nadal now at 10-9.

He made the finals and got #1, pretty good I'd say.

Well, just got back home after being away for 8 days!

Anyway...Congrats to Novak on the Year End Championship; Congrats to Rafa for Year End #1.  Seems like those 2 may be battling it out next year for #1.  It's pretty close.  Rafa will have a lot to defend (after not having too much to defend this year).  Murray might be back...and hopefully Roger will have a better year than this year (at least he has only 1 title to defend) :rofl_2:

Anyway... tennis season is officially on 'vacation' for what...3/4 weeks? :rofl_2:

Oh, and congrats to Berdych and Stepanek on the Davis Cup win.
