During his post-match interview, Nadal looked visibly unhappy when asked if it made sense to play under the roof. Once his upped his ante, Nadal was at his fore and dominated the match to win 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. The match will have to be continued on Saturday, with the victor facing Anderson in Sunday's final. Even though he didn't convert his first match point at 8-7, his efforts in chasing a Nadal drop shot did not go unnoticed.
Though Nadal and Federer fans will no doubt have loved the past 18 months, it had become a little bit of a bore of them just rotating who would ease to Grand Slam titles. For us to be out there for that length of time.
The road to the finals for both players was a wild one. I believed it, but he was very close. His ultramarathon loss to Kevin Anderson, by that score and over all those hours, in the Wimbledon semifinals on Friday amounted to the longest Grand Slam singles semifinal in tennis history. The penultimate of those ultimately helped him to the only non-tiebreak victory of the first four sets, and the last allowed him to finally get a leg up on Isner in the final stanza.
"If one person can't finish the other off before 12-All, then do a tiebreaker". "If I was on the opposite side, I don't know how you take it - getting through something like that is quite different". Anderson's serve will keep him in this match when other parts of his game desert him, and this can be enough to see him take the contest to five sets. My left heel is killing me.

What was once a dark spot early in his career, Djokovic has become a master at grinding out long matches and he may have to rely on this against Anderson who has shown a propensity to come back from the dead a few times in this year's tournament.
"I feel that I have lost an opportunity to try to win another very important title for my career".
Anderson will be playing in his second Major final after losing to Nadal at Flushing Meadows past year.
That service hold - helped by a 129 miles per hour (207.6km/h) second serve - took the American to 100 service games unbroken at this Wimbledon.
Djokovic's own return to peak form is very much welcome.
Anderson will now attempt to overturn a losing record against his final opponent.
Nadal and Djokovic will meet for the 52nd time. Nadal has gotten the better of Djokovic in Grand Slam matches over the years, still holding a 9-5 edge.
Beating Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros is a Herculean task, but after winning the first set in the 2014 finals, Djokovic had the upper hand in the match.
