All these young guys clearly don’t train properly
compare weight and size of past players to today
185-188cm is the sweet spot atm in the Houmou era
Meds and Zvev might prove me wrong but Id hate to
look like the old twin towers stacked 1 above the other

Look at Nole with his top off lately, he would have qualified
for food and daily drip back in drought stricken Ethiopia.
Also "we are the world" song could have lent his boney image
for the vid that scammed the world in another money grab.

Djokovic really must make these games a lot shorter on his serve. He is wasting so much energy. There are more matches to play after this one and he will need every bit of energy if (when?) he passes this obstacle.

Medvedev: Lacks talent
Zverev: Lacks mind and fitness
Titspas: Lacks Mind and fitness
Shapo: Lacks all three
Sinner: Lacks Mind and fitness
Also:

FAA - Lacks mind (at least in spurts).
Brooksby - Lacks fitness (at least at this point for Slams), and while "talent" overall is not lacking, the serve is a problem.
Alcaraz - I think he could end up having all three, but they're not fully developed yet.

Crowd is great, I was at wrong at that part. After two defeats in semis at OG, you would think he lost motivation for bronze. And I didn't make any excuse, I am not sure why are you using that word constantly, just sad he has hard draw,as your first comment was that his draw is not as hard as others are suggesting.
I asked nicely for you not to respond. Obviously, your reading comprehension is poor.

I told you I bow to your superior logic. You win. Please don’t make me report you for stalking me, OK? Do you understand?

He’ll be fine as he gets a day off. If he wins this he will get the night match again too.

Djokovic isn't impressed with Jenson's attitude I suspect, Djokovic was ready to return serve and noticed Jenson wasn't ready to serve and so Novak slapped his thighs and sighed.

Considering how hard Djokovic has had it vs Brooksby a potential matchup with Medvedev who is essentially a much upgraded version with a great serve spells trouble.

LOL - no. Medvedev does not have the kind of shots that Brooksby displayed. Also Med stands WAAAY behind the baseline. Brooksby was very offensive in 1st 2 sets. Med can NEVER play like that ever.

Are you seeking a near death experience? Lol, you better chill or your heart's gonna do it for you.

I really hate when Djokovic uses a drop shot where he does not need to. He used to use pass shots in his peak days.

He's going to fly through. Fast-forward to the semis against Zverev and I bet you we'll be saying "ffs, at least Brooksby made him work for it. This is pathetic."

Not a hindrance as long as you don’t make noise but Monfils has got on a lot of players bad side with that bs
Not true.

“ However, any movement that is made intentionally in order to distract the opponent, such as waving the arms or racquet or stomping feet can be claimed as a hindrance. ”

Maybe offensive as in his court positioning, refusing to get pushed back further behind, but his actual tennis was anything but offensive. He plays incredibly controlled and tolerant tennis.

JMac and BG said Andy Roddick can fix the Brooksby serve in four days. Please, Joseph Gilbert, take ARod up on his offer! Or, buy a copy of the Serve Doctor DVD. Pat Dougherty has been teaching serve to thousands of player for a couple of decades at NBTA/IMG Academy.
