    Final Slam count - Medvedev, Zverev, Tsitsipas

    I think Medvedev and Zverev might get 2 or 3. Tsitsipas I think might get 3 or 4. Honestly, I think a dominant force will probably take over and get more than Medvedev, Zverev, or Tsitsipas. To me, the issue is going to "tall man durability". Medvedev and Zverev are listed at 6-foot-6. That...

    ATP Finals Final: Zverev vs Medvedev

    Zverev off to a hot start from the outset, but holding that level will be difficult. Medvedev playing very mediocre as he does in so many matches, yet Zverev still only won the first set 6-4. Zverev has all the momentum (as many of Medvedev's opponents have at the end of the first set), but I...

    2021 Indian Wells SF: GriGOAT Artiste [23] vs Cam Norrie [21]

    Ok, I just looked at the scores (haven't paid much attention to this tournament until now). It looks like Norrie got really fortunate with the way his draw developed. He didn't really play anyone with weapons yet. Dimitrov is having one of those tournaments that he has every few years where...

    2021 Indian Wells SF: GriGOAT Artiste [23] vs Cam Norrie [21]

    I literally have no idea how these two have reached the semifinals. Just terrible from both. Dimitrov and Norrie just have no weapons. Don't know how they got this far.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    What's funny is that in the last two games... that's when Djokovic started trying to go 2011 mode and crush his shots. He should have been playing that way the entire match.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Yep, the NY crowd at the US open. Everyone has to break through that glass ceiling if you want it. If Medvedev really wants it, he needs to take it from Djokovic and the crowd both. Everyone does.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Probably not in all of sports (not sure you can compare between sports). But certainly in tennis the CYGS is the greatest individual achievement that a player can accomplish.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    That should have been the strategy from Vadja. I'm not sure what the strategy was looking at this match. But Djokovic needed to be aggressive from the first ball. Every shot. Go for the lines. 2011 mode. If you miss, you miss, oh well. But go for it.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Did Vadja and Djokovic actually develop a strategy of... "Just hit through Medvedev. No problem." ???

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Well, he's the GOAT. If you are going to be in the final, you'd better be ready for your opponent. He knows it. Djokovic wasn't ready. Medvedev was ready. End of story.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Djokovic simply has no solutions for Medvedev in this form.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Kind of like Zverev did the other day in the 5th set.
