Watch: Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal play memorable Sony Open match point

Novak Djokovic needed only one hour and 23 minutes on Sunday to beat Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-3 and win his fourth Sony Open title. The two saved their best for last, though, playing the point of the day on Djokovic's first match point.

The 28-shot rally featured some jabs and haymakers from the baseline until Nadal followed a short ball into the net. Djokovic was able to flick a backhand reply to stay in the point and both men ended up at the net, exchanging reflex volleys until it was Djokovic who found the open court. Cue the "fall to the floor" celebration of his 18th ATP Masters 1000 crown.
