Novak into the Australian Open Final

Maybe the most physically demanding matches in the history of tennis. These two battled for nearly 5 hours and the quality of tennis was off the charts. Amazing shots, amazing gets, and tons of heart from both players.

I felt having Lendl in Andy's corner was a big help and has pushed Andy's game to another level. It is a real shame he could not pull out the win. This is a match where you hate to see someone lose.

What can you say about Novak Djokovic. He has gone from being a choker to MR Clutch!!! He now loves these moments and somehow knows he is coming out on top no matter what.

Here is the question of the day. Can Novak come back and play Rafa Nadal at 100 percent. I believe his game is now better and more complete than Rafa, but he will need to be 100 percent ready physically and mentally to deal with the Spanish Bull. Can he do it or did today's match take it's toll? Let me know what you think.

5 hours and 53 minutes, no kidding!
