    All square! Nadal has the bit between his teeth as Djokovic can't return a forehand.

  2. 'Unbelievable!'

    I can't believe Nadal attempted that and executed it on such a monumental point. It's not often Djokovic can't get to a drop shot!

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (4-5) Djokovic

    Outrageous! A reverse drop shot from Nadal leaves Djokovic dumbfounded. Tiger Woods would have been pleased with that chip and backspin. Mini-break gone...

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (3-5) Djokovic

    Superbly crafted point by Djoko. Backhand down the line leaves Rafa scrambling, he retrieves, it is high, Novak's smash does not let him down...

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (3-4) Djokovic

    Another chance for Novak goes begging on Nadal's serve. He knows, oh, he knows. You still have the advantage Novak...

  6. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (2-4) Djokovic

    Silence on Centre, apart from the thud of the ball, the groans of the two players. Rafa moves into the net, court gapes, Novak closes in, Nadal hits the net!

    Mini-break to Novak...

    This tie-break is live sport at its very, very best.

  8. Top class

    It is incredible tennis, they have elevated each other again.

  9. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (2-3) Djokovic

    Djoko... lands a first serve... Nadal can only knock it long.

  10. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (2-2) Djokovic

    Another long rally ends with Nadal blinking first. He pumps a backhand past the baseline. Tense!

  11. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (2-1) Djokovic

    Rafa smashes a high ball, somehow Novak gets there, line judge ducking out of the way. Smash number two.... even Novak can't reach that.

  12. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (1-1) Djokovic

    Rafa lands his first serve, Novak keeps punching back in a long rally, then Nadal goes wide down the line! As you were.

  13. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 (1-0) Djokovic

    Oh my. A double fault from Novak to start...

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-6 Djokovic*

    Rafa jabs with his forehand, Djoko counter punches with is backhand... 15-15... Rafa steps in for a volley, make that 30-15.

    The man from Majorca grinds his long-time rival down again for 40-15, then overwhips a forehand for 40-30. But he gets over the line, despite Novak racing around the court.

    Tiebreak time!

  15. 'So impressive'

    Tim Henman

    Former British number one on BBC TV

    It has been so impressive from both players dealing with adversity when they are behind. Such strong serving from Djokovic asking the questions of Nadal.

    Sukh Pabial: This is the best I've seen Djokovic play all year. Back to his high levels of returns, stretch shots, power returns from service. This is him near his prime. And how Rafa finds the shots he does are just stunningly good. Hoping he does it! Vamos Rafa!

    Now if you scroll back to the 20:53 entry there was a gang of five, which is now a gang of three that still includes Natalie Russell and her companion from Scotland and Simon Church, who had arrived from Orlando earlier in the day.

    Natalie has been sitting on pretty much the same spot from 08:30 BST.

    So what's the longest you've sat in one spot?

    Transport doesn't count.

    *Nadal 4-6 6-3 5-6 Djokovic

    Is this the chance of this third set? Rafa races 0-30 in front after some ridiculous running, but is dragged back by the scruff of the neck by Novak.

    That's a no.

    An ace down the middle puts him 40-30 ahead, the Serb completing the recovery when Nadal knocks a forehand out of the park from the baseline.

    Not seen a single break point in this third set...

  20. Post update

    Nadal 4-6 6-3 5-5 Djokovic*

    Ahhh, that old favourite... the Rafa forehand. Nadal lassoes one down the line for 30-15, although he is checked by Novak at 30-15.

    That means they have won 90 points apiece in this match. If this was an arm wrestle they'd be locked in the upright position.

    Rafa ups the ante with an unreturnable first serve for 40-15, then another hits the mark which does the job after brief Novak resistance.
