re: Tennis Discussion Thread
and it had nothing to do with Djokovic being out of this world and then adding another dimension to that on the really big points. He's astonishingly good on normal points but he's an absolute beast on major turning points. Yeah Federer should have served it out but serving the set out against Djokovic is a really tough ask even for Federer. Certainly wasn't a bottle job. Losing a set you were serving for doesn't automatically equal bottle job unless you've unforced errored every point.
Djokovic was good in those points but Federer lost two service games in a row with a few UE. You don't see that often from Federer.
Federer stopped playing well after Djokovic broke back while Djokovic started to play better and won the set.
Djokovic deserved to win in the end though, I am not denying that.
