Nadal not at his best yet though, this is by no means over. Padster77 on Twitter: "Good first set by Djokovic, settled very well. Nedds to maintain that now.

I saw Rafa practicing earlier, and his power is frightening close up. Djokovic will get a good view from the other side of the net.
Novak then whinging that 3 weeks ago he broke his toe and hasn't been right since. Seems the done thing these days!
Djokovic calls heads Rafa chooses to receive, and the pair of them begin their warm-up. A few final preparations and they will be good to go.
If you are watching it wearing a pair of those natty specs, then please let us know what you think. One of them will make the return journey as Wimbledon champion.
I need to be physically ready, which I am. He's got number one tomorrow which is for an absolutely phenomenal performance. I thought he was going to slide down the rankings but he has improved his game by a good 10 per cent and that at this level is a huge amount, they are the number one and two players in the world and deserve to be out there.
Has he got a chance of victory? He trails in previous meetings but he has won all four of their matches this year.
The sun has gone in but this is still a perfect day for tennis. Pretty much the perfect match in store too, with the defending Wimbledon champion up against the new world number one.
Give this page a manual refresh and we will begin I will tweet away throughout the final and there will be all manner of reaction to this match and Wimbledon as a whole on the BBC Sport website tonight and tomorrow.
Although you should really all be doing some work. Eyes down for a five-set thriller? The general feeling seems to be Rafa in four or five.
Nadal won the title last year so can only maintain the same total, Djokovic has improved on last year's semi-final run and so adds points.
As Andy Murray said the other day, if you lose one match between January and July, you deserve to be number one. Todd Martin: "Novak has a very clear idea of playing Rafa by playing very aggressively and not giving him a chance to dictate.
It is the best way of playing and he is the one player who has had an answer to Nadal over several years. He is next to Nadal as the most physical guy out there.
He's not full of muscle like his opponent but he has better balance and his biggest weapon is that he can hurt Nadal with his backhand and forehand.
He has repositioned himself closer to the baseline and that has cut down the reaction time to playing Nadal's shots. Henman on Nadal: "What always impresses me is how well he plays with room for such a small margin of error.
It seems relatively low-risk tennis but his serve is very effective being a leftie, and thanks to that it gives him the chance to dominate with his forehand.
His defensive skills are unbelievable and he moves great. The serve is maybe the biggest thing - he has straightened it out as he had been having problems with that for about a year and a half.
If rafa wins but still moves down to No. Not sure Rog would agree with that, but I'm not getting in between two legends.
All interesting stuff. Barty could make it an Aussie double after Luke Saville's win yesterday. Nice for them.
Brad Gilbert on Twitter: "Have a gut feeling for no other reason that Rafa's 5 straight finals here and being the better player this fortnight; Rafa in 4 tight sets.
Bjorn Borg on 5 live: "It's going to be a hell of a final. These two players are playing unbelievable tennis. Djokovic is looking good, fit, strong and confident.
I think it will be a long, long match and I'm going for Nadal because he's been there before. It's all about pressure and a dream to win Wimbledon - maybe its Djokovic's biggest dream, but Rafa's won before and he'll want to win again.
Fortunately, we caught up with Robbie and numerous other tennis, er, experts to get their predictions. And don't worry, Jeff Tarango is in there.
Having worked with 10 players ranked No. What they drink, what they eat—every single thing can be measured and studied. And I believe that gets in the head of opponents.
They instill fear. And yet, year after year, the same message echoes: the depth is increasingly greater, a threat from a lower-ranked player that much more likely, the weaknesses among the Top surely less pronounced.
How, then, are Federer, Nadal and Djokovic able to remain so much better and continue to win these tournaments year after year?
Perhaps they too are witnesses to their own genius, keen to regard their achievements with awe, insight and appreciation. Just ask them.
If you do, I don't know, you must have so much talent and parents and the coaches that push you from the age of three on, who think you're like a project.
