    Going to 5 with Zverev looks like it took too much out of his legs. The crowd actually supporting him must be disorienting too.

    Medvedev playing almost flawless on serve, he needs one more break to take the title.

    ... and Medvedev breaks right at the start of the 3rd set, from 30-0 down.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,810 ✭✭✭ Hector Savage


    impossible, Djok playing awful awful tennis and a break down in the 3rd ....


    it's done



  • Registered Users Posts: 67 ✭✭ ireallydontknow



    Wow, that's outrageous. All my disappointment has been converted to anger on hearing it! I've had to hold my nose watching the gaudy American ceremonies and hearing the rowdy crowd shouting during serving motions, and that just tops it all off.

    wow ..big hold. long way back now.

    Novak is missing chances I haven't really seen him miss in a long time.



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,105 ✭✭✭✭ glasso


    Medvedev is a like a cat on court today.

    And Djokovic not moving anything like he usually does - even leaving shots that he'd never leave.

    That's it.

    It's over.

    Double-break.

    he looks a broken man.

    At least it will be an early night.



  • Registered Users Posts: 692 ✭✭✭ lostcat


    It wil be ironic if the last hurrah of the big three is the very match one of them was trying to make the ultimate history in....

    Djokovic's legs are gone here.

    Double break, that's it surely.

    I wonder what makes the USO the most "open" of the slams in the Big 3 era? All the one-time slam winners in the past 15-16 years have won their slam here: Delpo, Cilic and Thiem. Murray and Wawrinka have won here as well. Medvedev to join them in the next 30 minutes,

    Shocking.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,394 ✭✭✭ Xander10


    Sound gone, no Timmy...I am happy enough with that Prime!



  • Registered Users Posts: 320 ✭✭ klr87


    Maybe we should have seen this coming after the losses in Tokyo to Zverev and PCB, and all the sluggish performances here.



  • Registered Users Posts: 692 ✭✭✭ lostcat


    Medvedev will be the only man under 25 to hold a slam, I think?

    Not over yet...

    US crowd letting themselves down



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,922 ✭✭✭✭ MisterAnarchy


    The Yahoos are out in full force tonight.

    Idiots



  • Registered Users Posts: 320 ✭✭ klr87


    3 DFs when serving for the title. breaks himself, with a little help from the crowd.

    Crowd sticking it to Med

    Crazy stuff from crowd to do that to Med

    Djokovic in tears at the sit-down.

  • Registered Users Posts: 692 ✭✭✭ lostcat


    Losing in straights is a bad way for Djokovic to go out. he had a memorable year, just didn't have enough in the tank for immortality.

    Congrats Medvedev, he will win a few more methinks.

    What a relief! The vermin in the crowd tried their hardest to throw him off, but delighted for Medvedev!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 320 ✭✭ klr87


    Well, the last few games were dramatic, but overall it didn't reach the heights of the women's final.

    Anyway, I think Djokovic is still odds-on on to get to 21 first, and could still end up with more than that.



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,105 ✭✭✭✭ glasso


    Not the final that was expected.

    Medvedev was able to profit.

    His serve and groundstroke game were very good and it wasn't the "usual" Djokovic across the net.

    Didn't have the legs at all today - he was spent.

    Classless American fans, as always. Delighted for Medvedev, he's deserved one. I would have liked Novak to do it because I'm not sure when the next time, if I ever will, see it happen.


    Still have Novak favourite for AO.

    I would have hated to see Djokovic win the third via Medvedev bottling it, thankfully Med was 2 breaks up.

    Starting watching from set 2, Djokovic never looked like he was gonna win this.
