    Medvedev can hold his nerves, play super aggressive, AND be hungry to win! He has multiple champion level characteristics and he surely deserved to win 💯

    The best thing about Medvedev is that he goes to every ball no matter how the play ends. That is the same thing that Djokovic does, and he takes risks in the game, whoever does not risk does not win.

      Cannot ignore that fact. I agree. He really goes for every shot. Never gives up. Takes chances, risks. Clearly the better strategist in this case. Tsitsipas had it on his racket in Set1 but bungled it.

      @Aaron Fischer Meddy lost to Rafa on 2019 uso final and “1-5 comeback” tragedy, I believe he has been waiting for a moment to revenge. He is different , smarter than other players of his generation also confident. I will be happy to see Rafa hold trophy up again, but it might be so hard.

    Medvedev is the real deal, mental strength is miles ahead of almost all of his similar age group players.
    I m sure he will have at least 6-8 grand slam titles. (Being conservative on my part)

    Cheering for or against Medvedev doesn't matter, he is still going to play. He prefer if folks don't make any noise between serves, but he still moves along anyway. His greatest joy is winning against a player and against the crowd.

    Tsitsipas must have tired a bit at the end of the match. Medvedev does not seem to tire. His conditioning is unbelievable. I've been a tennis fan for a long time and remember Ivan Lendl's style. Medvedev is similar, but a little taller and with a 2-handed backhand. Medvedev runs well too, as well as anybody I've ever seen at his height.

      @wisanu99 You'll be surprised how much calories are packed in your body fat. I believe there some calculations that an average size American has enough fat to survive a 60 day fast. There are obviously differences in the level of play, but I don't think I ever lose more than 2 lbs after playing 2-3 hours in the sun. Most of the lost is just liquid though. I usually go back to my normal weight after lunch and dinner.

    • wisanu99
      wisanu99 3 months ago +8

      Yeah, the amount of run Med did is incredible. I wonder where his power reserve is though. When you use energy, you eventually consume fat/muscle and convert to energy when you run out of what you ate. Medvedev muscle? Fat? I don’t see any and the guy run like crazy. You can argue that he is light so doesn’t take much to move. But man, it seems to defy logic to me. Marathon runner like Kipchoge still loose tons of weigh after a marathon. Medvedev doesn’t have anything to loose to begin with. Very puzzling.

  • RamZar
    RamZar 3 months ago +64

    A really well-played match by both players but Medvedev is just too relentless shutting down Stefanos in the last set. Med is just too tough now and keeps raising his stellar game. Rafa won’t be able to handle him if he plays like this.

  • Mister MJ
    Mister MJ 3 months ago +81

    I'm not one for drama in tennis but a part of me really enjoys that Daniil and Stefanos ABSOLUTELY can't stand one another. Heightens their rivalry quite a bit and hopefully pushes both to spend that extra minute in training or squeeze in that last set of sprints to get better. Also for Tstisipas, the less his father is involved, the better he'll be ... guaranteed. See it all the time and throughout history as well.

    Congratulations to Medvedev for a fantastic and great performance in the Semifinals today. I really appreciate your fighting spirit, dedication and hard work to put in your work inspite of not getting the support of the Australian crowd. A Great Champion is always great which one should not forget. Inspite of your hectic and tight fight in all your games and less time to rest and importance given to you . DANIIEL - Only need to get calm on your emotions by taking tablets like Novak the greatest. I am sure there will extra drama on Sunday the FINAL, one more game. You r one of the best Tennis player in Men's team. Keep up the good work. My best wishes. Cheers - GOD BLESS. 👏👏👍👍🍻🍻

    Lights out performance from Medvedev!
    To beat Tsitsipas this convincingly, who was in scintillating form himself (dismantling the dangerous Sinner) and especially after a grueling 5 hours QF, is pretty incredible.
    The only person who i would bet, to beat Dani in this form, is a Djokovic playing near his best.
    Rafa is looking great, but i don't seeing him beating this version of Medvedev. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

    • NicolasMTS
      NicolasMTS 3 months ago

      @Jason Lewis Tsitsipas is very talented no doubt about that but he needs to grow up. Mentally he is not even close to Medvedev and that's why I think he's the best of the next gen, gets frustrated but can recollect like Djokovic can. He talks about humbleness etc.. but he's probably one of the most immature and can't accept loss he always try to find an excuse. Technically he gas out very quick honestly he was baked with Medvedev yet again like last year and the bear played many more hours. To win a grand slam is to play 7 matches in 2 weeks and also play 4-5 hours.

    • Jason Lewis
      Jason Lewis 3 months ago

      @NicolasMTS Yea I just dont think Tstuckispas is ready for prime time. Maybe in couple years but now. Medcedev doesnt get any credit; he is just not marketable but that is changing. I still got Nadal because his energy is legendary.

    • NicolasMTS
      NicolasMTS 3 months ago

      Tshitsipas underestimated Medvedev thinking he had the advantage of having a quick QF with Sinner. I didn't expect him to win because he didn't play that well the whole tournament. He played brilliantly with a still unexperienced Sinner so people thought "he dismantled him he will be on fire in the SF" turns out he was the more tired of the two. If he played the whole tournament like with Sinner I would have been impressed but no.. last year it happened that he had an exhausting QF with Nadal making a comeback and thought it would happen the same to Medvedev with FAA but no 🤷‍♂️

    Molonlave21 3 months ago +14

    It's very unfortunate Tsitsipas lost the tiebreaker in the first set, that could have changed the whole complexion of the match. He will have to do better in future matches to find ways to beat Medvedev, who he is currently the best young player of this generation.

  • Ken Truitt
    Ken Truitt 3 months ago +12

    Both guys can serve well and then put the second shot anywhere they want to. Tsitsipas' volleys maybe a little better than Med's. Tsitsipas' *level* came down just a little bit during the course of the match perhaps. A lot of people point out how Medvedev plays each point 100% and never concedes.This could be a critical difference. But ... could it be the factor that gave Medvedev the edge is that the 1-hand backhand just doesn't hold up as well against the 2? Sure, it's flashy and appears as a magnificent flourish when it wins the point. But in extended backhand exchanges over the course of 4 or 5 sets, the 2-handed backhand may give the edge to otherwise equal players.

    • Philipp Boetcher
      Philipp Boetcher 3 months ago +1

      I think it might be that Tsitsipas can't always create the amount of power that for example Thiem or Wawrinka could create. Shapovalov creates great power too!

    Congratulations to Daniil Medvedev. He displayed a magnificent tennis match. Stefanos simply did not have a response to Daniil's shots. Daniil is so humble, down to earth, and pleasure to watch. However, very low class spectators booed him. But he does not care. Also, I used to like Stefano but with the kind of shake hand he had with Daniil, not anymore. Be a man accept the defeat. Daniil is in a different class than Stefanos. If you don't like it too bad.

      @Javier Barrena I don't think the 1hbh is the issue here. but I do see your point about the physical demands. I think it just requires a different style of play. You can't play 1hbh and 2hbh the same way.

      Yakziv Z 3 months ago +4

      @Javier Barrena I think everybody is in agreement: Tsitsipas needs to use more bh slice in his shot selection, versus getting rid of his 1hbh all together. I also play with 1hbh but I'm not a pro though. I find that my legs get tired before my arms; granted, we cannot really compare our amateur matches to the pros though. Also if one does not have ironclad, proper technique for the 1hbh- he/she will suffer greatly on the pro circuit. You have to nail down the technique and form for the 1hbh, which a lot of amateur players do not do.

    Nah medvedev is different gravy. To be able to run like that at his height while still having huge pace on the ball on the run and sublime shot making to boot, massive serve. He is 6’6” running every ball down and doesn’t seem to gas. As it stands this guy is virtually unbeatable and will only get better as he gains more experience and hours in high pressure situations, something Rafa still has over him. Thankfully this guy doesn’t waste his talent and genetic gifts on a baby mental attitude unlike some others on tour. I just hope he doesn’t get injured playing like this

  • Mike Atkins

    It's about time someone put Russia back into the men's tennis elite and Medvedev is the man to do it. Well, yes, he will have to be very well prepared to defeat a Rafa Nadal who is thirsty for triumphs and who has been doing everything very well during the course of this tournament, same Russian too. In my opinion, may the best man win, because they both deserve it!💪🏻😍🎾🇪🇦♥️🇷🇺

    I knew the match was over as soon as Medvedev came back from 1-4 down in the first set tiebreak to win 7-5. That was the moment this match was won. To think people said Medvedev would be tired after his marathon game with Felix Auger-Aliassime in the semis. How wrong they were!

      @Kyekye Eminah thanks professor. yes i watch a ton of tennis, like most people who scour highlights on youtube, but thanks. unfortunately these ego-stroke comments like yours above or the classic 'i knew he was gonna be special' when a new player is doing particularly well happen surprisingly often; you actually believe that i thought you had to go out and say 'i have special insight' to come off in a self-important manner? um. you don't. it's implied. it's called basic self-awareness. lol. "how wrong they were! but iiiii knew better." and btw, i disagree-- that wasn't "the moment the match was won." give me a break dude. in the first set tiebreak? not, not at all. there were many more plot points and many more mental wreslings after that, including meddy's inner struggles with anger toward the coach-cheating, which arguably cost him the set, but he righted himself thereafter luckily. as IF he had already won it in set 1. that's what makes these majors. they're 5 sets, and take TONS more between the ears. but glad you knew the entire outcome of the match by then. teach us, nostradamus!

      @DanielBoonelight , can you enlighten me where in my original post I spoke of my insight or special acumen? If you have any idea of the past history between Medvedev and Tsitsipas starting from the first match at Miami in 2018 , you'll know Medvedev has a psychological edge over Tsitsipas.

    Straight up Rafa fan here, I agree w/Skyler Kim: Meddie is controlled, level-headed & determined. As competitive as Meddie is, nothing, nothing rattles or phases him. W/Nadal, he tends 2 choke when stressed & Nadal's pushing 36. Meddie rained on Novak's 21st GS party. I have a feeling he's going to do the same w/Nadal. That said, complete Respect for both players.

    As always Tsitsipas looked unimpressed and classless at the final greeting at the net. Real Champions do have to know how to lose and win. He doesn’t know either. Translation : he isn’t one. At least not yet.

      @william baker No. Many of the players these days don't have any excitement at all, and Tsitsipas had quite something already, that's my point

      Tsitsipas plays more like Tommy Haas
      Federer's appeal has always been his perfect technique and variety
      Tsitsipas is pretty far in both (his injury last year was because he muscles his shots too much)
      Federer was effortless and could dismantle you in more ways than you could count

  • Joe Marshall

    I thought Stefanos would have a chance here, since Daniil had played a five set match 40 hours be fore, while Stefanos cruised by in three. Yet Daniil ran down every single ball in those first two sets, which pays big dividends...terrific work by the big guy...let's see if he can give Rafa a run.....

  • Chance Robinson

    Brilliant job by both players! Yet, Mr. Medvedev is going to need to overcome the crowd sentiment, and the umpires, if he’s to overcome Nadal. The “lion in winter” underdog story has so much momentum. I watched Nadal stall his way to the U.S. Open title in 2019 and lost all respect for future endeavors. Even John McEnroe, on a live mic, said he was stalling! Stay strong Daniil! At this point in time, you are the better player.

  • S M

    Medvedev might be the favorite because of his ranking and his current form but I am sure it won't be an easy task for him either to beat Rafa and the crowd together. I am pretty sure 90% of the Australian crowd will be rooting for Rafa to win his 2nd AO. On the other hand Djokovic fans will be caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, if Rafa wins he inches ahead of Djokovic and federer in GS titles and if Medvedev wins, he secures the ATP number 1 ranking from Djokovic after 357 weeks. I really really hope Rafa can really come out strong, play the match of his life and win.

      @Goodee44 There is literally nothing in his game that is special. I have watched his game.. GO check his record agaisnt top 10 players and then tell me why he is special.. he isnt.. He is an ugly wall of mediocrity except his backhand which is pure awfulness to watch and I think we already covered his mental game... This is an accurate criticism of his game. And the choking aspect... My God even his fans admit that

      @DarkMysteriousObject like i said im not a fan of Step. but take your emotion out of it for a min and see the facts. your talking about a guy who is clearly top 10 and shows it.that is a fact. but the other side is the cheating aspect which is messed up and should not be done. but i dont think you should stoop down to what somebody else is doing remain who you are regardless. thats my point of view we see things differently which is cool

    If Medvedev have to win the title, he have to one of the first 2 sets.
    The last two Rafa matches had showed that Rafa is tiring towards the end of the match.
    So good chance for Daniil to win the title, but the 1st and 2nd set holds the key.

      @Jeffrey Kaufmann, if you watched the entire match you would see that Medvedev lost it at the chair umpire - He was accusing Stephanos’ father of coaching. Daniil was pissed!
      (They placed a Greek speaking umpire next to the box and Steph got a code violation)
      JDL is right, Med was almost certainly staring down Tsitsipas’ father for the illegal coaching during the match.
