Yeah, Medvedev is definitely the 2nd best HC since 2019, this is very hard to argue. Even if Djokovic declines a lot, the HC field should be great for the next couple of years, with Zverev, Tsitsi, Med, Thiem, Sinner, and Alcaraz.I agree , Djokovic wasn't at his best .
But that would be like taking away credit from Medvedev .
Meddy has been the most consistent Harcourt player at slams among the young Gen .
It was just a matter of time before he won a hardcourt slam .
Since Australian Open 2019-USO 2021 , he has only lost to either eventual champion or former champion on Hardcourt slams .
The only big problem for Medvedev is that among the next gen he seems to be the worst at dealing with Fed and Nadal's games. But they might not be much of a factor from now on.
