    Is Medvedev already the best male Russian tennis player of all time?

    Is Medvedev already the best male Russian tennis player of all time? If not, whom is better than him still (I picked the obvious three: Kafelnikov, Safin, and Davydenko), and what does he need to do in his career to pass them? I'm not sure, myself, how people feel he stacks up to those three.

    Has Medvedev USO win decreased the historical importance of Zverev Tokyo OGM?

    Zverev has been The Mighty One for a few weeks. Now it's different. Medvedev is hailed as The Man Who Stopped Djokovic. Did Medvedev spoil Zverev party? What do you think?

    A new tower has joined the club

    Daniil Medvedev becomes the third 1,98m (6' 6'') player who wins a Grand Slam tournament, Juan Martín del Potro in 2009 and Marin Cilic in 2014 also won the US Open. Can Daniil break the 1,98m curse and win another major? Discuss.

    Let's imagine Djokovic in 2021 US Open Final with no CYGS on the cards. How would it have ended?

    Tallest Group of Semifinalists Ever?

    I haven't been watching much of the Rogers Cup, and just noticed a "final four" of Opelka, Isner, Medvedev and Tsitsipas. They average about 6'8", and I swear Tsit (the "shortie" of the bunch) looks taller than 6'4". This must be the tallest group of semifinalists ever...no?

    Sunday's match might settle #1 for the rest of the season...

    There was a chance for Medvedev. Today's win pretty much wiped out his chances. On Sunday, Djokovic faces the ATP race leader in the RG Final. A win would launch him 600 points ahead of Tsitsipas going into his pet slam. It might be all she wrote after that. Tsitsipas is probably the only...
