    Towny's thoughts on the Final

    Thanks Towny for a VERY classy thread. I am so happy that Rafa won his 4th US Open, which makes him the fourth player with most US Open titles of the history of the Open Era, only behind Sampras, Federer and Connors and tied wth McEnroe. Nadal also became the best US Open player of the 2010s...

    Does Federer care as much as his fans do about the Grand Slam record?

    No. He cares even more. Everything which affects us personally is experienced with more intensity.

    This final is shockingly bad to watch. Tennis will die when Federer retires. Everyone will just watch his highlights on YouTube.

    What a Nadal hater, criticizing everything Medvedev does just to make him look an easy opponent. Yeah, Medevedev winning the 3th set is irrelevant. (Again if my comment is spoiler so is this thread in the general discussion, discussing the match before the match has even finished).

    This is what happens when you talk before the match is finished. This match is much better than the 2017 and 2018 finals.

    How can everything always goes Nadal's way?

    Nadal leads the H2H over Djokovic both at RG and the USO. At the USO Djokovic would be an extremelly dangerous rival for Rafa. At RG, Djokovic is dangerous but not Nadal's nightmare precisely. Nadal dominates the H2H over Djokovic 6-1 at RG. Plus, Nadal defeated Thiem in the RG final, and Thiem...

    It is a great Slam final. Fantastic. Medvedev broke Nadal in the third. (If my comment is spoiler so is this thread discussing the quality of the match before the match has finished).

    First set in the books, are we watching a super boring final?

    Very exciting to see Nadal potentially winning #19. Not boring at all. I am still nervous. Medvedev still can win.

    Do you think Federer is watching this USO final?

    Do you think lions are carnivores? Do you think Christianism is a religion? Do you think Michael Jordan was a basketball player? YES. Federer is obviously watching the final.

    If Rafa wins will he be considered greater than novak at Us open?

    For me, all Slams have the same value, regardless of the competition faced. That is the reason why I never denied Federer's GOAT status for the "weak era" claims. Whether Federer faced strong, average or weak competition in 2003-2007 is irrelevant to me. The man has 20 Slam and will be the GOAT...

    If Rafa wins will he be considered greater than novak at Us open?

    The USO 2017 draw was in no form or shape weaker than the AO 2018 draw. Nadal faced a Grand Slam winner (Delpo) in the USO 2017, just like Federer faced a Grand Slam winner (Cilic).

    If Rafa wins will he be considered greater than novak at Us open?

    Nadal can be the best US Open player of the 2010s decade if (and only if) he defeats Medvedev today, with 4 USO titles. But Djokovic is 1 year younger than Nadal and still has time to surpass Nadal's USO record. Interestingly, both Nadal and Djokovic will try to tie or surpass Federer's USO...

    Remember when people said Rafas style of play would lead to a short career.

    September 2008. I talked with a group of Federer fans, and they repeated the whole time "Nadal will be done at age 27-28, his style is ultra-physical". May 2019. Before RG 2019, I read in Talk Tennis many Federer fans saying "Nadal will never reach Federer's longevity", "Nadal won't play after...
