2008 FRENCH OPEN  

SF

          RAFAEL NADAL           v     NOVAK DJOKOVIC               

 6-4, 6-2, 7-6        

        

With Borg watching from the front row, Nadal produced one of the most remarkable performances of his career to defeat the third-seeded Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic played well and hit many amazing forehands that normally would win him points.
But Nadal played his best tennis ever to make the match look not even that close in the first 2 sets.
But Djokovic came back determined to win at least a set off Nadal and started hitting his shots even harder to get them past the relentless Nadal.
Djokovic fought to get the set to a tiebreak.
But second seed Nadal, who has yet to lose a match in four years at the Grand Slam event, re-established his dominance in the tie-break and took a 6-0 lead.
Most thought that the match was over, but Djokovic again refused to give in, winning several points in a row.

On the last point, both players hit great shots, and Nadal had a bit of luck too before he was able to set up for an overhead that he crushed for the win!
