The Guardian: always has great play-by-play coverage of tennis, complete with slightly malicious Brit humour:
« Second set: Djokovic 4-6, 5-3 Nadal* (*denotes server) « In a stadium built for a dictator, Mussolini, it is Novak who’s doing the dictating. » Yes, someone said that. A thumping forehand is followed by a drop, and Nadal is in all sorts, a booming crosscourt forehand clawing back a point.
« Third set: *Djokovic 4-6, 6-3, 3-1 Nadal (*denotes server) This is brilliantly, beautifully, brutally dismissive from Djokovic – he goes to 30-0 with a backhand swiped crosscourt. But there follows the kind of forehand return that gives small children nightmares, whip-clubbed down the lane with intense prejudice. Still, though, Djokovic closes out the game with ease.
Third set: *Djokovic 4-6, 6-3, 5-3 Nadal (*denotes server) There’s a slightly forlorn look about Nadal now, two groundstrokes absolutely smelted past him.
« Brilliant tennis from Djokovic today
