So Novak Djokovic leads 6-4 3-6 7-6 (11-9), but how did it get to this point?
Djokovic set himself up to take the first set with strong service games, facing no break points, and broke in the seventh game before sealing it with a forehand winner.
But the Serb could not keep the momentum going in the second, dropping serve in the fourth game before breaking back with a beautifully angled forehand.
But the struggle to hold serve continued into the next with Nadal immediately regaining his break advantage with a wonderful forehand winner.
Djokovic had two break points when Nadal was serving for the set, before gifting it to the Spaniard with a backhand error.
Games went with serve in the third set with Nadal failing to convert three set points in the tie-break, allowing Djokovic to take the set when his opponent netted a backhand.
