Definitely nowhere near his best. Novak well within himself too though.

It's like facing Mike Tyson in his prime.
Most of his opponents were beaten before they set foot in the ring.
These mugs can't live with Novak & he knows having been up against the other 2 all time greats.

yeah, we were spolied in the big 4 era. Lots of classic semis between the four of them and sometimes a Delpo or Stan would put a put up a fight. When it's a match-up like today an undramatic straight sets affair is natural, but when it's bo5 and no other tennis going on it's pretty boring.

It's expecting Sinner to be released and Novak to wobble/lose focus/play games. 1.6 Novak for the set is based solely on this. Novak stays in second gear and set is his again.

yeah, nothing about Marketa, but unseeded player without an enthralling personality in the final isn't exactly the recipe for an exciting final. Hope Ons can finally win a Slam, but there's a chance she's super nervous and has a Sabine type performance.
