Nadal has made guacamole out of the USO draw and Med here is the final topping.

 
Nadal hit a bad drop shot on the first point, after that Medvedev holds easy. Nadal needs to hold serve now. Medvedev will not give up like in Montreal, he will keep fighting.

I think Novak now has a better chance to overtake fed than Rafa! I see Rafa going past 20 but fed not winning another major. Whether Novak can overtake Rafa is more a difficult task!
Why will Federer not win anymore? He probably would have beaten Rafa today had he not been injured. He smoked him at Wimbledon remember.
 
You must not realize how many more winners he has than Nadal? This is not a good matchup for him though at all.
Yes. I am sure this match is blinding me, but I just see this and think how does he hurt people? Defense? He does not hit a hard shot and gets over powered. Too inconsistent.

Really? He stomped Djokovic twice on two different surfaces this year. Fedal couldn’t even manage that. Not everyone is a federer or a Nadal who can win a major in their first final.
His match up with Joe Kovic is not so much about weapons. Joe Kovic just has hard time generating his own pace.

Far from impossible, but odds are against him.

He's always got a nagging injury by the time the USO rolls around. RG is out of the question. So you're left with AO & Wimby, 2 places where Djokovic still excels and Roger's only getting older every day.

He can be quite passive sometimes but the pace of his shot is deceptive. It doesn't look like he is hitting it as hard as he actually is. Nadal is junk balling him and throwing off his timing and it's been giving him fits. That's his weakness. He likes a steady flat rally ball.

Federer can only potentially win Wimbledon now! He’s 38 and he’s proven he struggles to win us open. Hasn’t won it since 2008. He’s a non factor on clay. Aussi open will be tougher now with Djokovic and Nadal back in form on hard courts. Plus he vulnerable to other players too.

Only Wimbledon he a solid favourite but he needs Novak taken out and a good draw. He’s coming up 39 next year and I think that Wimbledon loss to Novak will haunt him. He’s gonna lose the slam record to Rafa and maybe Novak too!
 
No chance so far. Medvedev is really serving much better today than in the previous rounds. Suddenly gets so many first serves in, hardly any double faults...No chance to break right now. Nadal needs to keep holding serve.
