That fourth set between Djoko and Federer was like watching two boxers standing toe-to-toe and doing nothing but throwing haymakers.

Federer gets knocked down!
Djoko gets knocked down!
Federer gets knocked down, again!
Now Djoko is knocked down again!

And just when you thought that Djoko was a mental wreck after losing the 4th set (and a championship point), he stays cool and breaks Federer in the final game of the 5th set.

I like to think this is the result of a DC-universe-style temporal warp, and it really is all the Tim Howards stopping all the shots at once.

Please note his teammates just standing around...

Federer gets knocked down! Djoko gets knocked down! Federer gets knocked down, again! Now Djoko is knocked down again!

Oh, thanks for that.
