I prefer to look at the more important matches that Tsitsipas and Medvedev lost against their much older opponents despite being 2-0 up on both occasions.
Like I said, wildly inaccurate to say all NextGen have stamina problems. Neither collapse you refer to had as much to do with stamina as it did with not handling the moment. In particular, could Med have suddenly regained conditioning when he broke back on Championship Game down in the fifth set vs Nadal and then lose it again the next game?

Keep on Hating. This is fun! You are so predictable, unlike your avatar Odenkirk.

Ok, should've specified that the Main 3 Next Gen players (Zed, Med and Tsits) don't really have good stamina.

Tsits's collapse stemmed from more than just inability to handle the moment. The guy had 0 BP chances in the final 3 sets and didn't put up much of a fight. I definitely think that's more than just mental.

As for Med, why wouldn't he be able to handle the moment as a freshly crowned slam winner at his 4th attempt?

Hurkacz's second serve percentage of points won was an abysmal 38%. This simply isn't good enough in my opinion.

At least Odenkirk was funny when he kept changing the story here with partner David Cross as they “grill” a peep played by fellow Mr. Show actor Jay Johnston:


Tsits did not handle well the 1-2 third set service game hold moment, the true turning point of the final. Had he held that marathon game the floodgates would not have given way and allow the runaway.

Med had three break points at 0-40 2-3 Nadal serving in the third set, long before stamina would be the issue that you originally claimed was the issue. He didn’t handle the moment well, which I claimed was why he lost. Why does one player not handle a moment well? Better Call Sigmund. It’s beyond my paygrade. It wasn’t a stamina deficiency though.

Why does one poster handle these moments better? My hunch would be reality can be judged more clearly when emotions like hate are discarded. You should try it.
