They've been going roughly 2 1/2 hours now.

Musetti has only been on the tour 18 months.

It did go to a tiebreak. And Musetti won that as well! Shocked Shocked

If Novak is to survive, he'll have to do it the hard way.

But Djokovic has broken in the third set.

Djokovic has a double break now.

It should soon be 1 set to 2.

Djokovic won the third set 6-1. He's also running away with the fourth set.

It looks like a win in 5. Maybe Musetti should do Novak's trick and take a break at the end of this set to settle.

He does! Cool

He takes a medical time out and walks off court with a physio.

Musetti retires hurt, down 0-4 in the fifth.

He just didn't have the body for a five-set match.

Very Happy What a match!!
Third and deciding set was just phenomenal! Service breaks galore, unbelievable shots 97 minutes of unreal tennis.
the Djoker was at his best and tactically broke down an in form Rafa.
After 5-0 start by Rafa, I thought it was going to be a repeat of last year! But Nole just kept plugging away continually changing the speed and height of returns which upset Rafa., Goliath was finally brought down. Sad for Nadal but an unbelievable match!!! Congratulations Nole!

Hope we do a Djokovic to Melbourne on Monday!!

I watched it as well. Awesome match.

Whether you like him or not, this will only enhance the GOAT arguments for Djokovic.
