Medvedev doesn't really have an unplayable level. If Nadal plays his best tennis, he will beat Medvedev. If He doesn't, Medvedev can win.

Off speed shots don't bother Nadal. Federer slices Stan to death. Does nothing to Nadal.

Yeah, he never looks all that impressive, even when he’s playing well. A top-level attacking tennis should always beat him.

Daniil moves so well for a tall dude. That maybe shouldn't be that surprising given the evolution of athletes, but still. Why do people think his game is awkward?
im a big Medvedev fan

love the way he moves

his technique looks pretty awkward imo
- backhand is one of his nicer shots, but often it seems like he gets a bit too close to the ball, kinda stabs at it at times
- forehand looks different/weird/unorthodox, not in a particularly pleasing way

he moves smoothly, but the way he executes his shots aren't so smooth (fedr is a great example of smoothness)

No, it's Novak "Really wanted to beat Medvedev that day" Djokovic.
Novak was pretty vocal last year about just trying to peak for the slams. People asked him about his losses at IW and Miami for example (right after annhilating Nadal in the AO final) and he brushed it off by basically saying he didn't care much about those tournaments. In his own eloquent way.

Cinci maybe more important because it leads into the USO but he still isn't that invested in Masters these days. Probably the only way he can stay hungry and focused is by being selective about his targets.

It's never sincere. It's just a weird throwback to the old days.

It’s sort of a gentleman’s sport back in the days and the point should be ended in a constructed way, not luck.

Medvedev is GOATing. Wow. Seriously impressive stuff.

I'm beginning to think that he could do the unthinkable and beat both NAdal and Djokovic.
