Maybe Novak and Nadal playing tomorrow for five sets is the only chance these guys have in the final. I was looking forward to watching a classic today. :(

I just put this on at 25-24 with it being 0-15 to see how much longer it would go on. :lol:

This has been amazing so far.

This is almost like watching a different sport compared to the first semi-final.

Superb stuff. Really thought Nadal had the set there. Looking more and more like the Novak of old.

This is 100% the most maximum strawberry floating retarded thing I've ever seen.

This game should be the final. Not the strawberry floating serve bot that is Kevin Anderson.

So going to miss Federer/Nadal/Djokovic/Murray when they all go. Simply for when they play each other, amazing stuff :wub:

It's already kind of gone though, surely? We'd be lucky to see all four in one slam again I think. It'll probably be quite rare to see them face each other in slams, particularly deep into a tournament.

EDIT - OK actually we'll probably see them in a few together, but I doubt many in the next couple of years before Federer presumably retires.

Just seen the last two sets. In terms of quality and competitiveness that wasn’t far off being as good as Federer v Nadal in 08.
If it had been the final - we might be talking about in those terms.

I'm pretty embittered that in the middle of a heatwave, one whole match was played indoors and it happened to be (probably) the most crucial match of the men's tournament.

Big boost to Djokovic.

Is anyone not predicting 3-0 today?

I see that Anderson has made a statement saying that the events which require a fifth set to be decided by two clear games need to change and adopt a tie-break like the US Open.

Or, perhaps, and granted this is radical thinking... maybe he could develop a better ground game and not rely on his serve so much.

Djokovic and Anderson clearly both want to watch the World Cup final today
