Another classic final between these two.
Going to a 5th - fitness is going to be a huge factor as they both have been out so long.

Fed is going to have to serve really well in the 5th. You feel he needs to win a lot of cheap points if he is going to win.

Two absolute legends of the game.
Neither deserved to lose.

Murray and Novak will never have that rivalry.
That was the complete GS final - had everything.

Hopefully we get to see more.

Remarkable game. Federer is such a great Champion. His demeanour never changed for the entire game.

He got broken in the 5th then got hot at exactly the right time, winning 4 games in a row. What a champion.

Unbelievable tennis. I only saw the highlights on BBC Two (at home, folks don't have Eurosport) but it was still sensational stuff.

I don't think we'll ever see the likes of Federer again. Easily the best ever on every surface bar clay, and he was no slouch there either.

I'm still in awe of that final. Better than anything we seen in 2016.
In the end Fed serving and aggressive tactics proved decisive

20 Aces to 4 and the winners - UFE count was
Fed: 73-57= 16
Nadal: 35-28 = 7

Neither of them are at their peak but given generation useless, Murray and Novak have some serious competition this year in the slams if Fed and Nadal can maintain this level.

Apparently he was trying to hit the net! It was no wonder he was losing.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
