Daytime conditions for the final won't help Djokovic...

Djokovic is a precision player. Nighttime conditions aid his game. The roof and its effect on diminishing the wind also helps him.

The final will be played in the day. Meddy is well rested. Don't expect a repeat of the Aussie final from this year.

Med going to be really tough opponent for Novak, he is well rested, Novak has played many long matches in this open.
But hoping for the best, right now my two favorite will face each other, usually a win win situation for me, if this was not once in a lifetime opportunity of CYGS
Very tough, no? Have to play my best, keep going with the right energy

It is the Final. One would think think the crowd will get behind History and support CYGS.
But who knows with these NYC dunderheads.

Unless its as hot sticky and humid like Tokyo I wouldn't be too worried. I think for Med to have a chance, Nole needed to go 6 hours tonight. It was actually a short match. Nole is too close to the finish line to screw this up

I think the daytime conditions would have helped Zverev more than they’d help Daniil. Daytime helps you hit through the ball, that’s not really Med’s game, he’s more of a grinder.

Novak can handle either way, I’m sure. The sun will go down if it’s a long match anyway,

As posted in other thread, last four matches mileage on Novak is more than 13hour and 30 min, means on average 3 hour and 30 min per match

Did not really see any signs of fatigue or injury.
Grabbed his back but then went on a 50 shot rally.

Medvedev will struggle more if its hot and humid. I think you forgot ....he said he felt like dieing in tokyo.

Didn't Medvedev say he was going to die from playing during the day in Tokyo
Yes, Med said he was going to die during the Tokyo match.
But he won that match against Fognini.
Tokyo match conditions were 86 degrees with 60% relative humidity.
Heat Index = 91. "Extreme Caution".

Im not saying beating Medvedev on hardcourt when he is in this type of form is easy, because it isn't, but Djokovic is absolutely locked in now.

As good as Medvedev is I think it would take an external factor beyond Medvedev's control to shake Djokovic now.

The pressure of getting a historic grand slam could possibly still get to Novak. The weight of an occasion like this would destroy plenty of players. With that said, we have a lot of data to go on about how Novak handles big moments, and generally the bigger the occasion, the higher his level goes, regardless of the opponent.

This is a moment for all of us as tennis fans to sit back and hopefully see a very good final and savour a truly historic moment in the game.

If djokovic loses, he'll lose to himself. Med's nobody to defeat him now.

Conditions will be similar in Queens Sunday 4pm- 85 degrees, 50% humidity, plus the heat from 20K+ mouthbreathing Fedal fans in the audience

It will be very hot on Sunday. But I can't imagine a Russian, like Med, like hot weather either.

Do they close the roof for hot weather at USO? They sure do at AO.

You could hide at least something from us to hope and watch it till the end.
This sucks. :cautious:

Med has had a cakewalk to the final.

Djokovic has run a gladiator gauntlet and been FORCED to up his game to near peak levels…

Do the math

Like I said!

However, it is getting darker and the Soul Eater likes it darker. The less sun the better for Djokovic.

Meddy will have to brave the upcoming storm.
