Given what I've seen thus far, Djoker in straights. Fed will have to slice and dice like an absolute crazy person, since even a redlining Thiem found a sliding rubbery nuisance of a wall on the end of his cannons a lot of the time. Fed ain't hitting through that.

I voted with my heart rather than my head, and went for Fed in 3 ...

But he'll have to find some better form than he has had in his first two matches. If he plays like that, it'll be Novak in straight sets.

This is basically a QF, so not a RR match so Djokovic will care and win

Will win non tb sets for the first time in a million years

The only logical outcome is Djokovic 6-3 6-4, but this year’s WTF proved to really be.. WTF.
No favorites won thus far, except for Djokovic and Federer in matches vs tennis_pro.
If Nadal wants the YE#1 then he still has a chance to fight for it himself. But if he loses to Med today (which is what probably will happen) then nothing will depend on him anymore.

50/50 IMO. Nadal looked really bad vs Zverev but on the other hand Medvedev looks gazed, possibly tired after an incredible summer/fall Hardcourt season.

I think Nadal wins in 3 sets but I could be dead wrong with the abdomen injury.
Nadal said there is no injury. He is just in very bad form. Unfortunately I don't see him beating Med. Still have to hope for something. This is Nadal's last chance to fight for the YE#1. (I accepted long time ago that he will not get it, but it doesn't mean he shouldn't fight until the end). If he loses then nothing will depend on him.

How would you personnally feel if Nadal finishes 1-2 and/or 0-3 in Round Robin and Federer beating Djokovic with Nadal finishing YE1?

In that case both Nadal and Djokovic would have 2 slams and 2 masters this year, so can't say it would be undeserved. However, I would like Nadal to keep fighting himself. Well, I will not be able to watch today's match anyway. And after watching Nadal's level against Zverev maybe that's even better. I don't have any expectations.

I watched Federer and Djoker play back-to-back yesterday. Djoker is in much better form than Roger is. Federer was shanking far too many easy shots.

Unfortunately, Djoker is taking this in straight sets.

Fed has declined to a point now where I cannot see him win a masters, let alone the WTF. Too many players can take him out now.

The Djoker/Thiem match was much more interesting than the Fed/Berrettini match.

Indeed. The standard was night and day.

It was the best match outside Slams of 2019 IMO.

Who will win this literally knock out match?

Will Maestro take revenge for 40-15? Will Novak Djokovic continue his streak of wins over Roger?
Bold... Excuse me, but I don't know how its even possible to revenge 40-15. Only if Fed save two match points on Novak's serve in AO final, and win match... And even than, two more 40-15 will stay...

No revenge for 40-15, ever.... ;)

Probably posted somewhere, but what does the loss to Thiem mean to Novak's year end ranking? Is there no chance he comes on top now?

50/50 match. This one is going the distance. 7-5 6-7 7-6 Fed, hopefully.
50/50 based on what? i mean i wouldn't say fed has no chance ofcourse but nothing i've seen over the last two matches indicates fed is in any shape or form to beat novak, even a subpar novak. i will say i suppose atleast with bo3 the agony wont drag on for hours.
