He tried way too many drop shots and they only worked a few times.

he was desperate for a way to get Rafa off the baseline because he could not hit enough winners like he does against most players. Basically Rafa on this red clay is unbeatable and will be until he gets too old to run every thing down. Novak badly needed some easy/short winning points but his 1st serve in the low 120's is not big enough to produce many and his 2nd serve is even weaker and basically just started the rallies, which Rafa won far more often.

I suppose Novak is better on grass and hard courts, but not he is not close on clay.
