Med probably thought: "If I'm going down, I'm taking you with me".
djoko shoulda been a bit smarter and outplayed meddy kinda..ok, if you think so i will make it like training session instead, only problem djoko didnt do it lol he fell into meddy skillfully set trap

Djokovic getting too tired too quickly, weird for bo3 indoors. hopefully hes just under the weather otherwise this is concerning for the future
He’s not played much physical long matches this year and it shows a bit. His fitness a slight concern. However, it’s more the scheduling here and he shouldn’t have expended the energy against Meddy.

Fritz isn't good though. Novak can win this at 80%. He's not even playing semi decent tennis by his standards rn though.
He is tired. You can see it in how much he opens his shoulders up during his groundstrokes.

He was a lot more explosive in the first 2 matches and 1st set against Med

Yeah well no doubt yesterday's level would have been more than good enough here. As stupid as yesterday's grindfest seemed from an outsider's perspective I honestly still just assumed that Novak knew what he was doing pushing himself to the extent he did yesterday. If he knew his legs would be this dead and there was no chance at semi adequate recovery which it looks like is the case then I thought he'd know better than to push through against Med given what's at stake. He really just needed to be at 80% to win here.
