    Djokovic officially gone AWOL. This is looking bad.

    Wish Mullins would stop gushing like a little fan girl every time Nadal hits a winner. It's beginning to grate.

    Disappointing from Djokovic nowhere near his best but credit to Nadal for being the fighter he is

    Lax game from Rafa here. Needs to refocus.

    Djokovic often does the exhausted body language thing and then come back a few games later hitting bombs. But he does genuinely look pretty tired.

    Such a haunted look from Djokovic at the moment, especially after that ridiculous defensive point Nadal played to hol.

    Pressure is on Novak. Nadal wont really care if he loses this final.

    Looks like Novak has to hope for Roger 2009.

    Yeah probably agree with you there, considering he already has the all time Grand Slam wins at an individual slam record.

    Ugh, he didn't even make Nadal serve for the third. The least he could do at this stage is to prolong the match so that the rain delay occurs before the result is a foregone conclusion and not after.

    This match has a very different feel to it now - I don't think Novak can quite believe that he's now losing after having won the first set.
    There's probably still more in this match though. Is it supposed to rain soon?

    Djokovic very flat, he needs to believe and keep creating chances on Rafa's serve. Djokovic cannot afford to drop serve

    I'm not so sure - if Rafa didn't care about losing, he wouldn't be playing with such purpose and intensity. In which case he would probably have lost by now.
    The motivation and desire is certainly there - for any multiple GS winner, the 6th or 8th or 9th title (etc.) means as much as the first one. Plus there's always the possibility of adding to a great record to try and take it out of reach for future generations as well.
