Typically, Nadal responded in the second, and his decision to stand further back on Federer's serve paid dividends as he broke twice to level it up at one-set all. "He played really well", Djokovic said.
Soon enough, the defending champion was bellowing and shaking his fist after putting away an overhead to go up a break in the third set.
Indeed - Andy Murray aside on two occasions - no other player apart from them has lifted the Wimbledon trophy since Australian Lleyton Hewitt in 2002.
Back in 2008, both Federer and Nadal were undoubtedly in the prime of their respective careers, so to expect the encore from the veterans to be anything close would be a mistake, or so we thought.
Once his volley victor found the net tape and trickled over to cap the third set - turnabout was fair play, in this instance, after the way the previous set ended - the outcome seemed inevitable.
Although neither of the two could break each other in the first set, Federer got the upper hand when he won the set in the tie break.
Nadal's four-set defeat was somewhat unexpected since he had been an unstoppable force in his last three matches.
The Swiss said: "Novak is supreme again". A fourth consecutive Flushing Meadows success was Federer's reward for a 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 victory.

Federer won his first Wimbledon in 2003, beating Mark Philippoussis in the final. Federer finally clinched it on his fifth match point of the match and let out a scream upon reaching his 12th Wimbledon final.
As entertaining as that first semifinal was - including a 45-stroke point won by Djokovic - it was merely a tasty appetizer ahead of the day's delectable main course.
"There is, unfortunately or fortunately, one more (match to play)".
Though Djokovic regained his composure to make the final and set himself up for a potential 16th triumph at a major, Henman thinks the fact that the support will weigh heavily in favour of Federer tomorrow afternoon could be crucial to the latter's hopes of winning.
The players then smashed out their 45-shot rally, much of it a mesmerizing exchange of identical crosscourt backhands that had the crowd gasping before Djokovic blinked first to switch the angle of attack and take the point with a devastating victor.
He said his performance against Nadal in a match that "lived up to the hype" gave him confidence for the final. In 2003 the Swiss played his first championship clash in the All England Club, now he will face Novak Djokovic on Sunday.
The two are certainly no strangers to one another, playing 47 times on the ATP Tour with Djokovic edging the overall record on 25 wins. "We're going to have many more battles I think".
He took the set, missed out on three break points at the start of the fourth but struck in Bautista Agut's next service game, again in the fifth game, and it was all downhill from there. Moments later, he was ending a 45-stroke baseline exchange - the longest on record at Wimbledon, where such stats date to 2006 - with a backhand victor to save a break point.
