Rafa's level dropped towards the end of that set but good first set overall. Djokovic just can't get on top of that bouncing ball enough and it's causing him to be more inaccurate that usual.

You can watch it on ITV4 online if you're in the UK.

One set all now, it's been a great match but annoying it's on during the football.

Already the best match of the competition so far.  No surprises there really.

Not a big fan of either mind, both take the piss with the time between points.

Nadal's backhand has broken down here, leaving him really open to being attacked down both wings. Frustrating watching him at the moment

Nadal cannot consolidate after breaking. Another terrible service game with a bunch of unforced errors and it's back on serve.

Did nobody think to get Djokovic to pee in a cup after he went full Maradona v Greece c.1994 in the last round?

He's such a detestable prick.
