The dream final we've been all waiting for.

The world No. 1 vs. No. 2.

The Greatest player of All Time against the next King of Hardcourts.

It doesn't really matter who wins the match as tennis wins either way.


The script:
Unlike all of his other matches, Djokovic to start strong and take the lead, he goes two sets up, his fans start celebrating, tennis fans are in glee for the thought of experiencing history and Djokovic haters to be in utter ruins. But then, just when it feels inevitable, Med having nothing to lose starts playing like a possessed man, he takes the 3rd, then the 4th and keep mounting pressure until Djokovic crumble physically and mentally in the fifth. Med claims the US Open title making the greatest comeback ever in tennis history.

Vote and discuss.

Djokovic in 4, only because he will be partially hung over from the Zverev match. Otherwise in 3. This match will be easier than Zverev match.
Yes it is what I said all along. Zverev is a bigger threat to Djokovic than Medvedev. Although I have no doubt if Zverev and Medvedev played in the final, Medvedev would have won. Very much a rock-paper-scissors situation.

Ummm, I wasn't waiting for this final. Certainly not a dream final at all.

I think the match could turn on Med’s 2nd serves. In Cincy 2019 Novak was eating his 2nd serves up and so Med just hit two 1st serves and it turned the dynamic of the March on its head.

Can Medvedev be that clutch again when he needs to in a GS final? I doubt it, Novak in 5.

Djokovic in 3, although it might be 4 if he's hung over from the Zverev match. This match is a lot easier than Zverev match. Medvedev has no weapons to hurt him. I voted in 3.
 
I have no hope after Australia. That match made me unable to watch any tennis for 2 weeks. This is going to be a torcher. But I will tune in for the CYGS, that's once in a lifetime event, as a tennis fan it would be a shame to miss it.

Medvedev will in 3 sets. I know you guys think Djokovic can walk on water but let's look at the facts: Djokovic has dropped SIX sets, Medvedev ONE. Medvedev has been playing better than Djokovic all tournament. Medvedev is not intimidated by Djokovic. Medvedev has been on the courts far less over the course of the past two weeks. Medvedev is serving at an amazing level. Medvedev is going to win on Sunday.

Final score: 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. Djokovic will be broken 4 times, and Medvedev broken once.

Med will make Djokovic run, that’s the point of his deep return position and sideline to sideline game. He’s going to try to wear the 34 year old down, and he’s as fresh as you can possibly be having only dropped 1 set and had 2 days rest before the SF. And that would be a great strategy, if he were playing anyone else.

I just don’t think he has it. Would need to servebot like he never has in his life. Djokovic looks like a demon again. Djokovic in a tight 4.

He had a cakewalk and wasn't tested at all. Med won't be ready for Novaks level.

We heard this in the Aussie Open final and he laid an egg

The inevitable in the minimum.

I don't think Novak will risk it going even 4 given how quickly Med can gas people with his pushery.

Med is a mental midget pusher with court positioning issues and other weaknesses that Novak can drive a truck through, just like Zod.

We disagree. Djokovic wasn't truly challenged until tonight and played a five set match. He still has lost SIX sets during his first six matches this year, has been broken far more than Medvedev. Medvedev is ready and is playing better than Djokovic.

You didn't hear it from me. That was then, this is now. Medvedev is playing at a much higher level now than he was in January. I believe Medvedev will win on Sunday, regardless of whether it is Djokovic or if it had been Zverev in the final. Medvedev will win 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Did Zverev's legs collaspe in the fifth or Novak upped the ante on his groundies?

Medvedev has had an easy draw he won’t be ready for Novak’s level. Today Felix was outplaying him in the second and a qualifier took a set off him in the quarter finals. He’s definitely beatable

His legs weren't even really tested in the 5th. There were a few long points but most of the difference was Novak upping the ante - especially FH DTL - and Zod mentally collapsing, instead of going with him. There was a brief Zod resurgence in the 3rd and 2nd last games but the 5th was a time-vampire joke really.
