This past weekend, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic put on a show. There were times when it looked like either of them would win. The momentum shifts were unbelievable from set to set, game to game, point to point and even within the same points. There's no question the match was up for grabs and that this is the closest Nadal has come to beating Djokovic in a long, long time.
This is easily one of the greatest matches I've ever seen and Nadal, even though he lost, should take a lot of positives out of it. However, if he doesn't improve certain aspects of his game, he won't get any closer to taking back control of the number one ranking.
