I hope Djoko could recover on time. I am even hoping that he faked an injury to be allowed "special treatment". Now is the time where he can say, sorry guys I have to pull out of the final as I am hurting too much....then he would be allowed plenty of great treatments authorised by all parties!

I remember Agassi being flown to hospital for "rehydratation" betwwen his semi and final v Federer.


So with this in mind I m hoping Djoko will win in 4!

The Italians in double!

I am so not interested in women's doubles final, I'm almost tempted not to make a pick...but since I'm a hare...I have to!
So it will be the Italians for doubles and
Djokered Djoker in three sets, no joke! Winking

Same here.  He is not above doing that.  If he is playing as well as he has been throughout most of this tournament, I only see one winner.  Of course, I thought he would win last year.  And in 2012.  And in 2011.  But this time I feel more confident than in 2012 and 2013.

Good to know I'm not the only mad one here...I thought the whole thing was staged just to take pressure off him for tomorrow, right down to Gulbis saying what he did after the match about feeling tired...and being two hors late for the press conference...he's one fine actor if he pulls it all off  Cool

I wish but one doesn@t surrender a set like that in the semi...it's too dangerous.

Quick choice here before going out for today:

- Nadal in 4 and jokered, hehe, maybe I am wrong again  Laugh ; yesterday though I voted with heart over mind, today not so much...
- the Asians for the doubles, no idea really, a fifty/ fifty chance of getting it right, I guess

Djoko :"I'm going to try to be aggressive, because that is the only way I can win against him," said the Serb.
"I know that, of course, this is the court he's most dominant on. He has only lost one time in his career. This is where he plays his best.
"But we played some really close and good quality matches the last two years here, and knowing that I was that close to win against him gives me that reason to believe that I can make it this time."
That;s worrying. Being aggressive over best of 5 is impossible v Nadal. Wrong tactics and that maybe because he doesn;t feel 100%. Strange cause nadal will want to hear that as well. He woudl have been better off saying that it is going to be a physical gruelling match..that may have depressed Nadal as we know he is the one who has often lost those battles.

It looks like it is going to be sunny with maybe a bit of rain later. wind average 11km (moderate) with gust of 54kmh!!! That's quite a bit.

If Djoko can keep doing this, it's a 3 setter for Djoko....I am convcerned about his health. he doesn't seem to move as well as in previous rounds.

No one can handle the kick of Nadals shots better than Djoko, but in this heat is quite a task for Djoko too.

Yes but one can hold them much better. It was a very nervous game from Rafa when he got broken...then he becomes more relax being down in score cause he has less pressure.

I heard that the ref was talking with Nadal after that set. The ref probably doesn't have the guts to give him a time warning during play, not without talking to him first

It's actually a bit unfair cause the court and hour of day makes it the sun affecting the RHers more than the LH....Santoro confirmed it

Still unusual UEs from Djoko...might down to the extra heat/spin I agree.

But the good news is that Nadal cannot keep on hitting that hard, this is why he himself tries to shorten rallies.

He seems ok to me but we will see how he is as the match goes on.

One good thing is that he is just now starting to dial in on the return, so he definitely has room for relatively easy improvement there.

I think he looks like someone who does not fancy the long rallies and a bit slow to me. He was quicker v Gulbis' first set.

That's my impression but I might be wrong. He looked very quick and agile v Gulbis.

not sure about that. Nadal wants to play like he did against Murray, but his timing is not (yet) as good

Murray gave him an easier ball to time. Nadal has dropped intensity in all in matches v Djoko...even last year when he started like he was on dynamite powder.
