Zverev vs Djokovic | Best point of the match

Visionary

Professional
Zverev played amazing, no wonder he went so many matches without losing.
Yes, he did. For his great effort throughout the tournament, Sasha was accepted to the Novak Djokodal Tennis Academy for the future champs. When has that tennis school open for Zverev? Well, in the 5th set of the match. Novak gave Sasha a free lesson on how to start, continue and finish a GS fifth set. Perhaps, those two had a chat about the last year's USO final prior to the fifth set last night. All in all, the 5th set lesson may not only have been enlightening for the Zverevs but all the male tennis players, their coaches and all other tennis trainers and academies around the world. Thank you Novak
 
a 53 shot rally that could have ended in 5 rallys if a 6 foot 6 player would act like one and attack the net. Not think hes Nadal at that size. Why do they make life so difficult on themselves. You're not going to beat the greatest player ever playing his game. To beat him you play a different game

You're not going to beat the greatest player of all time by abandoning your own game either. If someone comes on to the court against Novak and goes "well, guess I've got to abandon my A-game before I even start, because that's his A-game too" then you're just gonna lose faster.

Besides, that's *everyone's* A-game nowadays. Because it currently seems to be the most effective way to play tennis.
