That was fairly epic on a lot of levels. Not a huge tennis fan but the levels mens tennis has reached in recent years is insane. Nadal and Djoker absolute sickos - actually dwarfing the talent of possibly the best player to ever play the game in Fed-Ex.

Maybe the best 3 matches to end a grand slam (both semis and the final). Didn't have the same level of excellence throughout the match as the 08 Wimbledon final (Nadal/Federer), but ranks up there as one of the all time great matches.
Djokovic has shown how to use patience as a tactic for defeating Nadal, something Federer cannot (will not?) do.
How hard was it watching the post-match ceremonies? Both players stretching and bending over in pain as the Kia chairman went on and on and on. Kudos to whatever tournament official noticed this and dispatched chairs for both players.
