Federer is probably the best ever at coming back from devastating matches he didn’t win, often times at the precipice of victory, oftentimes outplaying the opponent, so not sure why “even Federer” is written here.

He couldn't handle the crowd. Their overwhelming support for Nadal was defeating and like nothing he had experienced before. It wouldn't surprise me if the eruption on match point burst his eardrums.
 
First, pretty sure it's because Federer didn't quite make peace with THAT loss, that he came out to strike down with vengeance in that RR match.

Second, Roger wasn't one to get sulky after losses. He would always find a way to recover mentally fairly quickly, even after the toughest of losses. For all of his faltering under pressure, Roger is one of the strongest mentally when it comes to not picking himself up after falling. Medvedev is in the league of Zverev and Tsitsipas when it comes to being stoic, not in Federer's league.

Didn't he say he was only going to play for the Russian crowds from now on ? Even if there was a small tournament the same time as a grand slam he was going to play in Moscow anyway ?
 
Yup, Medvedev is just a mental midget in a 6 ft 6 body. He shouldn’t have any trouble with moonballs yet he always finds a way to lose against Nadal and people have the nerve to say he has a chance to beat Djokovic in Australia? :rolleyes:
