Finally Rafa dumps an easy forehand into the net, that's the Rafa of the last few years at last - immediately leads to break points..

Not as bad as Federer's worst couple of misses in this match though - that smash yikes

Roger is really trying, but he is simply not good enough in this match

Three break points go begging and Rafa holds to lead 2-0 in the fifth set. How are you holding up haddie nuff?

No - there's the formality of Nadal holding another 4 service games, but barring that it's over.

Oh how it frustrates me that Fed is consistently snuffed out by Nadal who I have to acknowledge is a great champion and has read his Kipling (he takes victory and defeat very well in his stride), but whose conduct on the Court between the first instruction to "play" and the last point I dislike so heartily.

I see you.
I think as an OCD man I've always been able to understand why a man doing humble HAS to take that long between points, and rules be damned

Thing is I like Murray too. He takes longer if you can believe so I can't really say snything

I don't think it's a formality for Nadal to hold four service games. Look at the score, no 7-6 or 7-5 sets, both of them can break today.

But the problem is Nadal can also break Federer again. I think at least one more break in the match.

Well, at least Nadal got the drop in level he needed from Fed. If only he had a dominant serve. If Federer levels this set and it goes to a late shoot out at around 5-4, or 6-5, or 7-6 etc, Nadal would be under massive pressure on the serve.

Oh, who am I kidding? Just trying a jinx as I watch this behind the sofa....

about 4 forehand errors in that game

credit to federer for the one backhand

rafa still strong favourite I think but he is cracking a  little under the pressure (?) this at least keeps it interesting

just as well those errors because as Rog is playing not welll enough to beat Rafa at his very best - just needed a little help to stay in it
