2nd time lucky, djoko breaks for the first time. Probs deserved 2bh.

fed's level has dropped a bit in the 2nd set and djokovic has raised his
roger needs to start finding his 1st serve again or it will be game over

Yes, definitely. And Fed is unable to avoid long rallies.

Also, Fed is not getting anywhere on Nole's serve.

There goes my straight sets to Fed prediction.

Nole looks more solid.  Fed will need to find a way to get into Nole's service games.  Maybe try to return a touch more aggressively.

I think Feds played better the last time they met at wimby under the roof, even with back pains.

He was two years younger then.

But not too late yet to raise his level today.

Yes, he upped the aggression, I am glad he did.

Too bad about that call - it should have been 0-30 on Nole's serve. Roger does not get too many chances like that.

Finally getting some free points on his serve. He cannot spend half the day rallying with Nole just trying to hold.

Huge hold. The moment Djoko gets that return in and as well is he is doing, djoko is favourite to win the point.

Not good but it is pretty fair given their relative level of play.

It will be very very hard for Roger to come back now.  He is unable to make any real dent on Nole's serve.  Also, even if he were to win the fourth, once you go deep into the fifth, you would have to favor Nole on stamina.

For all complaints about Dimi's defensive play, he was able to make the match look less like an ordinary HC match than this one.  There are too many plain baseline rallies here today.

My only hope is that he didn't break Roddick's serve in 2009, until the last game of the match.

I'm actually hating this match at the moment. Just doesn't feel right, and it's not because Roger is losing.

Is there anything in this world more annoying than Fed who forgot to bring his forehand to a slam final?

Well, yes: Nadal is more annoying but this comes as a good second

Why does he not play the whole match like that?

That last FH was what he should hit more of - he will miss some, but in the long run he will be better off than when he gets involved in attritional baseline battles.

That is one thing where Dimi was better - in the baseline rallies he was looking for a FH, and when he got it, he was trying to dictate.  Fed has been mostly happy sending neutral forehands back at Nole.

So typical, Fed finally breaks Nole's serve, plays some of his best shots of the match and yet loses his serve again.

I cannot believe this is going to the fifth.

As I said before, I think fifth set may be too much for Roger, so I do favor Nole from here, but I do give Roger a better chance than when he was 3:5 down in the 4th Winking
