OT: Anyone for some tennis?





Currently watching the Djokovic-Nadal finals. And was wondering if anyone else wants to discuss it.

Nadal leads the series 21-15 overall, but Djokovic leads 11-6 on hard courts.

Nadal leads Djokovic 4-1 in 2013.

Lefty vs. Righty

Currently 1 set each 6-2, 3-6.

More info

Djokovic and Nadal have met 36 times (the most head-to-head meetings in the Open Era) with Nadal having a 21–15 advantage.[121] Nadal leads on grass 2–1 and clay 13–3, but Djokovic leads on hard courts 11–6. This rivalry is listed as the third greatest rivalry in the last decade by ATPworldtour.com. Djokovic is the first player to have at least ten match wins against Nadal and the only person to defeat Nadal seven times consecutively. The two share the record for the longest Australian Open and Grand Slam final match ever played (5 hours and 53 minutes), at the 2012 Australian Open final. In the 2011 Wimbledon final, Djokovic won in four sets, which was his first victory over Nadal in a Major. By doing so, he became the only person other than Federer to defeat Nadal in a Grand Slam tournament final. Djokovic also defeated Nadal in the 2011 US Open Final to capture his third major title of the year and fourth overall. By beating Nadal, Djokovic became the second player to defeat Nadal in more than one Grand Slam final (the other being Federer), and the only player to beat Nadal in a Slam final on a surface other than grass. In 2012, Djokovic defeated Nadal in the Australian Open final which made Nadal the first player to lose in three consecutive Grand Slam finals. At the 2012 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters in April, Nadal finally beat Djokovic for the first time since November 2010. They had met in seven finals from January 2011 to January 2012, all of which Djokovic won. In the final at Monte Carlo, an in-form Nadal crushed Djokovic. Nadal again defeated Djokovic in the final of the Rome Masters tournament. At the 2012 French Open, Djokovic faced Nadal in the final. For the second time in tennis history, two opposing tennis players played four consecutive Major finals against each other. They also became the only players in history, except for Venus and Serena Williams, to have faced the same opponent in the finals of each of the four different Grand Slam events. Nadal eventually won in four sets after multiple rain delays that forced the final to be concluded on the following Monday afternoon. At the 2013 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, Djokovic ended Nadal's 47-match winning run and eight-year winning streak at the event by defeating him in straight sets in the final. At the 2013 French Open, Nadal and Djokovic faced off in the semifinals. In a repeat of the previous year's final, Nadal once again emerged victorious bringing their head-to-head tally to 5-0 at the event.
