Pat Cash says Djokovic was just too 'irresistible' for Nadal

Novak Djokovic's win over Rafael Nadal was praised by everyone. Commenting the match on BBC on Saturday, the 1987 Wimbledon winner Pat Cash said: 'When Novak locks in and starts hitting that ball so consistently, so flat, it is very difficult for a guy, even as good as Rafael Nadal, to throw some spanners in the works.

He tried so much with slice and angles, but Novak Djokovic was just irresistible.' The seven-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe said: 'Seemingly (he) lost interest and lost motivation...when all is said and done, we need him back on the top of the game.' A few weeks ago, Cash had made an interesting comparison between Djokovic, Federer and Nadal: 'I don't understand how he (Nadal) does it, I really don't know.

It's some form of obsession, there is no doubt about it, I don't know what drives him, but it has to be. Federer as well ... Why would he be playing at the age of 36 other than to please your adoring fans and because he likes playing and he likes to win titles? There is some obsession, there is some ego-driven thing that's really pushing them massively.

Novak [Djokovic] is normal. Novak said, "I lost motivation." That is normal. In my era, the Tour wasn't as nice and as comfortable as it is now. We had to travel and go overseas and it wasn't exactly first-class seats.

We almost all lost motivation.' ALSO READ: After Roger Federer, also Rafael Nadal could leave Nike!
