    But Fed was so steady. He didn't seem nervous to me at all. I actually think that Djokovic stepped up to the plate and then some - when he needed, i.e. the 3rd and final sets. Also, winning one tb might be a fluke but all THREE?

    The fact that Djoko DID NOT lose his mettle was stunning - to me anyway. It's been almost a week and I'm still marvelling at it all, how he was able to come back from that crucial break down. AND WIN!

    Also, re: your point about pressure on Federer. Well, I think the pressure on Djoko is really crazy too - he had the crowd against him and he desperately wants to beat Fed's record. And I think he'll do it too - as long as he stays healthy and fit.

    I wasn't strongly in favour of either winning. I just wanted a good exciting match and we got it.
