Djokovic is going to have to hit is FH with a lot more conviction than he did against Shapo to beat the Bullsheet Russian who has been in much better form than Djoko's first three opponents. A bit more of a struggle for the favorite here, but he squeaks through in five.

Medvedev absolutely could win. Anybody can win on a given day if everything aligns right for them. Certainly Djokovic is favored to win, but he has lost plenty of times over the years to lower-ranked players.
Yup. Also his last 3 losses we're against next gen players. If Medvedev starts playing aggressive from the get go it could become difficult for DJo.

Mega battling of crazy slav countries,.
If you think about it, all the young guns have Slav blood in them, in one form or the other.

Coric, Medvedev, Zverev, Raonic, even Tsitsipas(half Russian). Amazing that the Slavs are currently dominating the sport.
 
Djokovic didn't look routine in the 3rd set against Shapo

Shapo played **** and took a set, Medvedev is in a whole different league, played extremely well in Brisbane, surprised more people can't see the possible upset

Strapping in :)

we can see an upset, but are thinking positive. Medvedev is playing very well, and can beat anybody if he plays well.

Djokovic was up 4-2 40-15 and lost his focus in that set. He was in the driver's seat the whole time but threw that set away.
