Late match on Arthur Ashe Stadium, finished at 2 a.m.. It was the best version of Nadal [1] so Fish [35] needed to play beyond his standard level to have a chance, and he did it in the opening set (nine aces). He couldn’t maintain that level for the next three sets that Nadal easily won (in the 3rd set he broke at 3-all).
