The tall Russian battled hard and took the match to the brink and many thought could pull off an upset by the experience and the grit of Nadal prevailed in the end .
Nadal was stretched to the limit by the Russian who refused to go down without a fight. It dashed pre- match prediction that the final could be one- sided affair and it would be an easy one for Rafa to power home to yet another Grand Slam title . Rafa in- fact had to play at his very best to romp home .
