Zero emotion from Medvedev

This guy wins big titles and can’t even crack a smile... What’s the point, just for the check? It would have meant much more for Dominic Thiem. Medvedev is a great player and will win many titles but this is not good for the ATP...

Med Ved has a serious chip on his shoulder. Brutal game and brutal sportsmanship. Sooner or later he's going to crack...

I actually like that he doesn't freak out every time he wins... almost like he expects these victories to happen. In my opinion, it is one of the things that separates him from some of the other younger players. He has true belief in his own ability to play with (and beat) the very best. He's going to win slams next year.
Btw, my wife says that he looks like a Bond Villain, with the soul patch and that crooked smirk. :)

Just because he didn't celebrate doesn't mean he doesn't care
People celebrate in different ways.
Everyone reacts differently. Not everyone wants to act all Hollywood for the cameras
I'm sure he is really happy to have won.
It's just he processes emotions in a different way most people do, and nothing bad with that.
Think he was trying to be respectful to Thiem, ppl have different ways of celebrating
Nonsense. Med won the event, how he celebrates (or if he celebrates) is up to him. Many of us find his nonchalant attitude cool af.
I disagree, everyone should think and celebrate exactly like me. It’s the right way.

After the USO ‘19 debacle, he said something along the line that the cool, not-affected look would be his celebration from then on (as a reaction to the hostile crowd).

I don’t know how you would argue he lacks showmanship: this is the guy that threw pennies under the ump’s chair at Wimbledon (or Queens) as an accusation :) , and dared Tsitsipas to fight. The other great showman, Nini, doesn’t celebrate profusely either.

I really like the Mad Lad

Reminds me of this kid

Poor guy. Probably conditioned by his parents to study spelling all day long in lieu of anything that provides joy.

Such a usefull skill. He can now spell the word “hippopotamus” when he’s writing a letter to his family as he’s roaming the African Sahara and doesn’t have access to a computer/spell check/electronic device.

I like it. It's just a tennis match. Media may want to make out its so amazing, etc, but Meddy is a pro; this is what he's paid to do. It's even more respectful at this time of history.
It's also preferable to the OTT celebrations of recent years which have helped turn tennis into WWF.

We didn't "deserve" anything. The match was a pleasure to watch. Be at least a little grateful the tournament even took place.

Man. I've been playing and watching tennis for over 40 years. Never seen an ass like Med Ved. Disrespectful to the unseen public to say the least. Don't know where you're from , and , honestly, don't care. I would have preferred a more deserving champ.
