Yeah yeah I know. It was the US. I was merely pointing out how pathetic some of these next gen players can be from tournament to tournament.

Inconsistent. Why Novak, Rafa, and Roger have dominated for so long.

6-0 6-2.

Finish it quickly, please. Do NOT let him do the unthinkable...

Nadal lead 3-2 with the break in the 3rd set, but screwed it away. He was also up with that score in the US Open final before being dragged into a 5th set...

Edit - And it's over, thank god.

Rafa destroys Novak 6-0 6-2 7-5!!!

13 French Open titles. 20 overall, tying him with Roger. Novak stays at 17.

Finally Novak got exposed in a GS final. Someone was able to play at a better level for more than 60% of the match (Federer and Thiem should've beat him, but weren't consistent enough). I thought when Novak held for 5-4 saving BP he'd steal the set, but thank goodness.

Combine Novak's flukiness with Rafa's GOATness today, and we had a good ol' drubbing.

I can't see Novak getting to 22 GS titles tbh. Rafa WILL win at least another French, getting him to 21. Novak needs 5 more to get to 22.

It would certainly be difficult, especially if Thiem or the Giant can have any sort of consistency. I think Federer has at least one more in him, but that remains to be seen.

Federer either needs a lot of luck at the Australian Open, or needs to win Wimbledon. Those are his last chances ever to win a GS. I can't see him playing and/or being a threat in 2022. In his last 4 Wimbledons, he has:
Lost in 5 sets in the semis after being up 2 sets to 1
Won the tournament convincingly
Lost 13-11 in the 5th set of the quarter finals after having match point in the 3rd
Lost 13-12 in the 5th set of the final after leading 8-7 40-15 and having BP at 11-11

Thiem has finally found the consistency. The problem is that his best slam is the French, where he has a 5% chance of winning. Medvedev has an ugly game which is hopeless on clay and grass, so he only has 2 chances a year. Zverev has a great record against the big 3 (all 3 of them), but he often falls apart in early rounds. Tsitsipas is the same.

AO - Novak
French - Rafa
Wimbledon - Novak
US - Novak, if he avoids injury

I think Rafa might have a shot at the Australian next year, especially if Novak is in his own head after this beating.

The AO just hasn't been Rafa's slam. Only 1 title there despite making a lot of finals. He'll have to hope Novak and Roger lose in the earlier rounds, cause I can't see him beating either on a hard court. Thiem would also be a struggle to play again.

That could actually happen. Federer might not be fully recovered yet, and Novak could be thinking too much about his recent departures from Grand Slams. I'm hoping Rafa can win at least two of the four next year just so Novak doesn't gain any ground.
