Value with Medvedev for me. Might get even bigger in play though. The Chessmaster likes to start slow and take the legs out of the opponent. First Slam final for Jannik so nerves always a possibility as well.

even if Daniil takes this 2nd set he has given Sinner some hope here due to his inability to stay focused. Shame as he had played brilliantly up til 5-1.

What a Mugvedev, losing to basic Sinner, he had Jannick on the ropes, even forcing him to duck out of a rally second set to play a drop shot from the baseline

Do not this mug Sinner win a slam, it's signals the end of tennis as we know it, Danill will never get over this if he loses after the Nadal match as well

He's rushing too much to serve, playing way too quickly and giving away cheap points, needs to slow it down

Unbelievable strength of character from Sinner, how may times in recent decades have players won a slam in their first final, let alone from 3-6, 1-5 down? Medvedev weakened for sure, but still a great effort from the talented and likeable Italian. First of many? I wouldn't bet against it!
Report Angela Rebecchi January 28, 2024 12:34 PM GMT
Daniil was lights out for the majority of the first 2 sets, then weakened as Sinner strengthened. Looked very likely the minute Sinner started getting close a big comeback in the 2nd set.

a player of Murray's talent was denied 5 Aussie slams finals because he had to face Prime Djokovic and Federer

Basic Sinner gets to play clapped out Novak with a wrist injury and play a mental midget in the final

Report thaz January 28, 2024 12:41 PM GMT
"Clapped out Novak with a wrist injury" was still in the semi's and he's won slams before carrying injuries, as have many players. "Mental midget" Medvedev has still made 6 slam finals and won US Open vs Djokovic, so a little harsh in that assessment. Perhaps unsurprisingly after his 5 set marathons, he got tired. It happens.

did you not watch the Semi, Novak was a shadow of himself in the first two sets, and on reflection wasn't himself the whole slam, I don't think he's past it but he clearly was not at his best here, he was able to make the semi's because his opponents were weak. Tiredness is a legitimate reason usuaoly, but not when you've had two days rest, not when you're 27 and in your physical prime and you're two sets up against a player light years behind the level of what we've been used to the last 15 years.

I'm filing this under 'cheap slam'.
Report Journeyman January 28, 2024 1:08 PM GMT
Sinner was clearly in Novak's rear view mirror all the way through a very consistent late-2023. He has also clearly been in Novak's mind as his most pressing threat for a time now as evidenced from recent interviews and pressers. Novak's dedication and willingness to go the extra mile prepping matches in his late 30s is unprecedented but the incredible run of slam wins continuing was reliant on the other horses in the race continuing to 'know their place' and stay in formation.

Sinner was the irresistible force that ultimately overcame the immoveable object.
Report thaz January 28, 2024 1:09 PM GMT
Djoko has often not been anywhere close to his best, or fully fit, or appeared to be out of sorts in early rounds and won slams numerous times. Sinner light years behind what we've been used to? Yeah, he hasn't won 20+ slams and probably won't get close to that, so what? Who cares about the level of the last 15 years, or the 15 years before that, or the level of the next 15 years? He won, he'll win again. The record books won't show "cheap slam" but you have your own opinion, fair enough!
Report Angela Rebecchi January 28, 2024 1:19 PM GMT
Sinner is a generational talent. For sure a fully in form Novak and I think he topples but this is tennis! Great winner I believe.
