i mean ... medvedev in three set , this court suit med way more than 2021 , it will be just worse than us open 2021 final
 
This guy just always finds a way to downplay Djokovic or maybe it’s his way to satisfy his soul incase Djokovic loses
I like Meddy too. I want Djokovic to win. However, Meddy is a great HC player. His game bothers Novak so Novak needs his very best here. I say 5 so it could go either way. Let’s hope we get a classic.

novak djokovic has no card to beat med in rally

For all the fuss some people around here make about Djokovic being unpopular, he will very likely be the crowd favorite on Sunday. The only thing that motivates Djokovic more than a crowd that roots against him is a crowd that pulls for him.

Novak has two slams these year 23 in total. Please let Medvedev win one more. I have had to sit through 2020-22 AO F and I can't stress how hard it was to watch through 2022 AO F. Could not watch anything tennis for months.

Medvedev in 5! Should be an epic though! I feel Djoko will fight and play great. Meddy loves these courts though. Slight edge to Octopus here.

Do you think somebody is beating Novak in the 5th set ? and that too Med?

No way, Alcaraz could have tried to outlast in the 5th set but not Med

Med will either have to win it in 4 sets or else he gets thrashed in 4 or loses in 5.
 
This is not handwringing. Meddy can be a nightmare matchup for Djoko on these HC’s.

However, Djoko did start to work Meddy out more in last few matches bar Dubai 23. It should be a fascinating battle. There will be so many rallies and brutal BH exchanges.

Whoever serves better will likely win. Both are great returners on HC

Repeat of 2021. Medvedev is the one guy on tour who can outgrind Djokovic. Djokovic has played nothing but bums this tournament.

I don't think he's that tough of an opponent for Djoker, people blow the 2021 final fluke out of proportion pretending the result had more to do with Med's level of play than with Djoker's pathetic performance due to the enormous pressure he had on his shoulders. Plus Djoker will smell blood and be in vindicative mode because of the 2021 final, so he'll be even more dangerous.

I really think he dodged a bullet with Raz being out of his way.

You could be right there. We will see if Meddy can play like that on Sunday. In earlier rounds he wasn’t as great. He seemed to peak tonight. The other factor is the final will be played earlier in day. We will see who that favours but the roof likely will be on. Both are great indoor players too.

I hope we get an epic!

It's hard to comprehend a guy at 36 winning 3 out of 4 slams in a year. I have to go Djokovic though, I think Med's level has been slightly better the last couple of rounds but I just don't trust him to deliver again in the final

Djoko looked rather tired by the end of tonight, which is surprising since it was only the 3rd set and he's had such an easy tournament to this point. Of course not sure if it was just a bad night or if father time is finally starting to get a grasp of the man. I'm not sure he coming back from an early deficit.

yeah , this is what i was thinking too , novak djokovic has little injury , i think
and he dosen 't understand how big this match will be terms of importance of us open final
if novak djokovic lost agian , rafa could be GOAT , rafa could win 2024 AO and 2024 RG

Why randomly picking 2 matches played 3 years apart? Djoker is 4-1 against him since their USO match. 9-5 overall. He loses against a lot of different players in BO3 matches, it doesn't mean anything. He's the heavy favorite for the title.

at 2021 us open final too , and med beat djokovic at 2023 dubai semi too
And Djokovic has beaten Med 9 times to 5 losses, 8-4 on hard courts. Djokovic even went out of his way to beat Medvedev at the ATP Finals in a match that didn't even matter for Djokovic. Everyone knows that Djokovic came into the 2021 USO final on fumes after a ridiculously hard draw while Med coasted on a draw with FAA the only notable opponent.

Meddy will be emotionally exhausted from tonight. Time for a let down after playing almost perfect tennis against an amazing ATG. (See Fed at WB in 2015.)

Novak will be emotionally rested after many days of sleep following his dangerous battle with practice partner and fellow Serb “Djere in Headlights”; The hardest he’s had to fight in two weeks.

He will have an easy time manifesting #24, sadly (for me).

Ultron (FREAKING AGAIN) in 4 at the most.

I’m very tired of this. But it is what it is.

No clue. I have Djokovic as a favorite, but not by a large amount. Med certaintly has the capability to beat him as he already has and Djokovic has lost to lesser player here before. Set 2 Med in that Alcaraz match would beat Djokovic in like 4 sets.
 
I think med has played at higher level at times this event. However, he’s also capable of bad games and lower level.

Djoko is more steady but meddy can catch fire and be unplayable at times. It’s an intriguing matchup. Not a lot between them on this surface.
