    I think the problem with Nadal is most of his forehand shots are heavy topspin. If he mixed it up and did some nice fast pace flat shots he would easily win more games.

    They say Federer is the most elegant tennis player of all time ?? I don't know if there is a better shot in the world of tennis than Djokovic's backend parallel, when Djokovic hits the backend parallel properly, only then do you see the real art of tennis. 5:30

    To be honest, Nadal has it most difficult out of the big 3. When he was reaching his first titles back in 2005, Federer was already an established champion, who enjoyed a free ride for a few years before a serious threat appeared (meaning Rafa himself). Now Djokovic is in a similar situation on the other side of the timeline - no serious threat with Rafa and Federer well past their primes. Nadal never enjoyed a few year period of “easy ride” like the other two are/have.

    Fun fact: Djokovic is the only player to win 3 straight sets against nadal in his 2 wins in Roland Garros, 3:0 2015, for 0:1 to 3:1, again 3 in a row. Soderling won 1st 3rd and 4th so not 3 in a row!

    Djokovic just not panicking after going down 5-0. That's so impressive. He knew that he was in better shape than Nadal and that the longer he kept the points going and the match going, the more likely it was that Nadal wouldn't be able to keep his high standard up.

    This match could have had a different score if it weren't for nadal lack of first serve. Nadal first serve was terrible that day. For those who dont know, nadal's first serve is weaker that Federer's and Djokovic's. just review the amount of aces achivement by the big three in history Nadal is way down.

No one knew who he was or where he came from. But he knew what he wanted. He was funny too. I will never forget. Look at who he is now. May God bless you for many more grand slams and a happy family!

    The biggest edge Novak has over Federer in playing Nadal is that he has a double-handed backhand unlike Federer. Nadal always does a a heavy topspin to Federer backhand causing Federer difficulties and having him resorting to chopping the ball instead of driving or hitting it flat, and Nadal will then pounce. The second is mental strength, in my opinion. I am very happy for Djokovic.
