Even in the third set,Djokovic couldn't put away Medvedev's horrible drop shots missing simple forehand/ bh at the net.
Gassed and Med played beautifully, I said before the match, people underestimate what he (Novak)did at RG, but he can't always repeat it.
I thought Djokovic started reading his serve a lot better starting from the second there but he wanted absolutely nothing of Medvedev's baseline play.Medvedev's serve won it for him. Djoker couldn't read it like he normally does.
Not even Top 10.
Medvedev brung it and knew from AO he needed to break Novak early.
Yeps Med was excellent.
Med didn’t even give him a look in the first set tbf. Nerves though played a huge role, but med played far too well to say it was just that.
Sorry I know you are Fed fan but some of Fedal fan think Med is absolute trash but it is not true, on hc, Med can literally challenge anybody.I thought Djokovic started reading his serve a lot better starting from the second there but he wanted absolutely nothing of Medvedev's baseline play.
And every time, he successfully chase down the drop shots, his hands froze to fail at the subsequent putaway.
Even when veteran ttwers and bionic posters where projecting Tsitsipas as the next dominating ruler , I told them Medvedev's defense and movement is in different league.Sorry I know you are Fed fan but some of Fedal fan think Med is absolute trash but it is not true, on hc, Med can literally challenge anybody.
Med, Zverev, Thiem problem are mental
Yep , I remember you like me always supported Mad lad.Even when veteran ttwers and bionic posters where projecting Tsitsipas as the next dominating ruler , I told them Medvedev's defense and movement is in different league.
He lost AO because he was shocked by Novak's crazy ROS performance that day.
He is 4-6 in slam final after playing 5 set semi, physical fitness is really important for himCould this have been a case of a tough 5 sets semifinal really hurting Djokovic for the final? like his 5 sets semifinal against Del Potro in wimbledon 2012 and losing quite easily to Murray in the final
He missed atleast 5 putaway sitters. Crazy scenes.Yep, he was nervous as hell. He just needed one break of serve before the downfall in third set, and he really could have won here. But he was just too nervous. Daniil played nothing special, Zverev played much more better match on friday, imo.

WTF Google said it was starting around now. So I could’ve watched it before work lol.WTF? I thought the match would start about now...I had no clue they started so soon
Look if Aslan’s not up to it, and it doesn’t seem like he is these days, Daniil is my next favourite even if I was seriously disappointed by that AO performance.Baseline bullying on display at Ashe.
HC tennis evolved past Novak
