8-7 Djokovic so far. This could go on for a while. Is there a certain time they have to stop?

Just an unbelievable game to end it. Wow.

We'll see what Novak has left for Berdych.

What a pity Stan lost. What a great fight. Hate seeing him lose against Djokovic. Don't like him at all.

One of the all time best matches I've EVER seen!

5+ hours and they were both still making such insane shots right up till the end!

Really sad to see Wawrika walk off the court in tears.

Pleasantly surprised when I woke up this morning to check the scores. only to see the fourth set just starting. Full credit to both players. Just great performances from them.

Any of you guys think Raonic can beat Federer tonight?

Wow. I thought after the second set the match was in hand.

....and, no, I don't think Raonic will win.

I do think he can. This is their first best of five but each of the previous three matches have gone 3 sets and been extremely tight. Now I wouldn't bet on Raonic winning but I certainly think it's possible.

Stan

That's the sort of loss that can send a player into a downward spiral for a while.

I had to leave and set the PVR only to have it crap out at 11-10. Damn, so close, Stan.

I haven't seen Fed play at all but I don't think Milos can beat him. He might take a set and his play has gotten better as the tourney has gone on but I don't think he can do it. Has he gone 5 before?

I'm pretty sure he went to five sets last year at both Roland Garros (against Monaco) and the US Open (against Giraldo).

According to the ATP website he's 2-1 lifetime in 5 set matches.

Oh my god. What the heck happened?

Does Nole get two days off between quarterfinals or semi-finals? Berdych is probably a favourite now against him. Argh.

No, Djokovic won't get two days off now. He'll get two days off between the semifinal and the final if he makes it that far.

You should probably relax a little. Novak has shown his ability to come back strong from a series of long matches and continue to win them. Look at his run at Roland Garros last year. He'll still be the favorite against Berdych.

Yeah, I don't see having played one long match like this as being that big of a deal for Nole. It might be a different story if he was getting Murray or Fed in the potential semifinal.

Especially if he has his "egg" with him.

Would've liked Wawrinka to win to make it a bit more interesting but it'll be interesting to see if Djokovic is tired for his game against Berdych. Will be a good test for him.

I think a lot of people are putting too much emphasis on Djoker going the distance....if there's anything I'v learned the last 2 years is that he thrives in these conditions and it doesn't really affect him

Hey, the guy just won a match after five hours. Give him some leeway.

I was thinking about that Murray-Wawrinka classic at Wimbledon some years ago before this match, and I was hoping this one wasn't similar to that. Oh well, poor Stan.. played so well (apparently) yet he still lost.

Nole-Berdych will be quite interesting. I never know what to expect from Tomas. He either comes out firing and playing unbelievable tennis, or it's a full-on choke. Hopefully, it's the latter...
