Great pic from TennisTV, showing that Nadal will literally run from doubles sideline to doubles sideline to hit a forehand, while only hitting backhands out of a tiny, 4 meter lane on his far right.

Dominant performance, if not exciting tennis. Djokovic has won three straight from Nadal. Nadal only had one break point chance, which was in the first set, didn't convert, and never got another sniff. Look at where Rafa is hitting his forehand and you get an idea what Nole did to him. Djokovic held firm to the baseline, then attacked Nadal's forehand: With his serve, with his own forehand, often using high topspin, and as was more anticipated, by taking balls early with his two-handed backhand. Nadal looked uncomfortable all afternoon -- rushed, pushed back, not moving well.
