Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have been known to play marathon matches filled with grueling points. Well, how does a 54-shot rally sound? That’s what transpired in the middle of the second set Monday during their U.S. Open final.
Djokovic won the point to break for a 4-2 lead. Nadal immediately broke back, but Djokovic responded with another break and a hold to win the set and level the match at a set apiece. (Click here for live game-by-game analysis of the match.)
After the jump, check out some Twitter reaction to the point.
What's the big deal? I play 54 shot rallies all the time :)—
