Nishikori here bringing it to Djokovic. Powerful ground strokes! Although the heat and the rallies taking it's toll. He looks bollocksed and it's half way through 3rd and 1 set all...

C'mon Fed. All the big boys out. Probably never get a better chance at 18.

Would do wonders for Tennis if Cilic made final now. The old romantic in me would like to see Fed make it 18th title...
