Is there anything Djokovic does better than Medvedev currently

I mean I wasn't wrong with anything. Medvedev has been the better player for the last 4 months by far. He's been a level above Djokovic in every aspect of the game but that final was about nerves and Novak was able to show the world what he's really made of, so many congratulations to him and his team. He's unbelievable.

I don't mind Djokovic win. I'm a fan of him and happy for him and always thought he's the tennis BOAT but I wanted Med to win since Novak's already won so much, moreover, I put my money on Med.

Anyways,
Currently nothing, tomorrow everything.
This was it. Well done and congrats again.

TTW never learns

They wrote off Rafa in the RG 2020 final

They repeated the same for the AO 2021

Don’t back Next to next to next gen until they actually beat the big 3 to win a major

Serve, return, FH, BH, net play.
I acknowledge you're enthusiastic on the back of a solid victory. Congrats!
That being said, looking at the stats of today's game, the one metric that defined the match is second serve win rate.

Novak 58% vs Med 32%(!)

This highlights the quality of Novak's return, and based the importance of the second serve on the outcome of any match, his grip on winning matches in modern tennis

Honestly if 8 out of every 10 threads weren't deleted on here you'd have someone with epic amounts of egg on their face daily on TTW. A lot of people get saved by the deletions.

Tons of horrible hot takes about the Next Gen over the last two weeks have gone into the ether. Luckily for them lol.

Medvedev has a better serve no doubt and maybe now a better BH. Movement is better and fitness is.
Everything else Djokovic has but i suspect if and when the meet again Medvedev wins .

And as of yesterday? You're saying this after Djokovic's BH totally outclassing Medvedev's BH in the yesterday final!? Are you for real!? o_O
Over past 5 months Medvedev BH has been better. One bad day doesnt change it.
If they played tomorrow at AO i would back Meddy in 4 sets.

Medvedev will get better. Would be foolish to write him off. His threat career wise is Tsitsipas i feel though.
I don't even think he needs to get better. His level is more than enough to win slams but unfortunately for him he had a bad day at the office against the AO king. Just unlucky. He'll be back and get many chances to win all those HC slams in the upcoming years.

Shame as i wanted Nadal to get a 5th USO but i think Medvedev will win it. He will be 3rd time lucky.
He is outstanding i think.
