Tsitsipas took two from him at the FO. What happened after?
Rublev took one. Djokovic woke up.
Once Djokovic wakes up determined, none of these NextGens can stop him. It remains to be seen how Alcaraz will react.
Total BS. Medvedev didn't collapse in any set in USO 2019 final. In this match all sets were pretty close. Actually, when Djokovic faced Med in the final of the same slam, he lost in straight sets. The only next gen who proved he sometimes can bring good level.
Last year, Sinner took the foot off the gas just a tad. He couldn't believe he was up two sets and went into cruise mode. By the time he ramped it up again, it was too late. He won't make the same mistake. He knows now he has to be ruthless.
I think the one thing that we can all agree on his to win tomorrow Sinner will have to be serving close to 70% or above especially at the key moments in match. If he doesn't, then Novak will be hard to stop
Djokovic was up 4-0 in the first set of their match last year and faded a bit as Sinner continued playing at a high level. The last three sets are closer to how I see this match going tomorrow. If Djokovic comes out strong and wins the first set, I think it'll be straight sets. If Sinner wins the first set, Djokovic in 4.
What extra prize money did he get for the two sets? Can you upload a picture of the two set trophy? For some reason I feel like I have amnesia right now. I must have been hit in the head.
I woke up with this insane notion that winning two sets in a best of five set match is the equivalent of losing.
Sinner plays too aggressive (although the bar is quite low these days), he probably got mentally and physically exhausted trying to hit through counterpunching God for the 1st two sets in the slow conditions.
