Nadal positive in defeat

Rafael Nadal thought his epic Australian Open final against Novak Djokovic was "never going to finish".

The match was eventually won by the Serbian 5-7 6-4 6-2 6-7 (5/7) 7-5 in five hours and 53 minutes, making it the longest grand slam final of all time. But Nadal was positive in defeat, and especially pleased he had been able to conquer his demons in competing well with a man who has now beaten him on seven successive occasions.

"I am very happy about my mentality, it worked well at the big moments," he said.

"I didn't have any mental problems against him. I had mental problems against him in 2011 but not today."
