Another good game by Nadal. Finally hitting aggressively and using variety. Not waiting for his opponent to make the error.
And not surprisingly, he BREAKS.

Nadal leads 3-2 in the 3rd set.

What an embarrassing display. Med would lose if he played better, but what is he even trying to do here? Zero gameplan. Just content to be in the final.
The plan was to outgrind Rafa I guess but he’s not buying this.

Nadal always gets these easy majors. Federer always has to go through a prime all time great while Nadal gets bums like Medvedev and Anderson. Can you imagine if he had Medvedev in the Wimbledon final.

What a ROS on 30-30. @StrongRule Nadal is very good on the return roday, isn’t he?
That was not a regulation return. You hit part of the racquet and the ball somehow lands closer to the baseline. You miss 9/10 of those.
Even Djokovic wouldn't be making returns on that big of a serve.
Nadal's ROS is bad when he misses sitter serves,or returns inside the baseline.

Medvedev played better in this match than in Montreal, that's for sure. But he needs to spend a lot of time on his net tactics. He seems to always approach the net one shot too late. He will get a lot more easier points from players.

Although... I'm not sure it matters. Medvedev's current game is good enough to beat pretty much everyone else on tour. Including Djokovic and Federer.

Med's been fighting hard this set but Rafa upped his game after the first two sets and put on a clinic so far hitting balls with more authority. Rafa's confidence grew big.

You should go check out Fed's slam opponents during the first half of his career.
