Novak for the win. He has all to gain from doing so.

Now let's see if her and Fernendez can sustain or if they fall by the wayside.

Medvedev won. Can't believe it.

Is this the start of a new era?

I only managed to see the 3rd set (match started at 3am my time), but Medvedev was just playing solid. He was playing with the right mix of attack and defense, and never looked vulnerable. The only time he did was when the crowd were jeering his double faults when he served for the match at 5-2.

You've got to feel for Novak. 27 consecutive GS wins, and he was the favourite in the final. He had the chance to cement GOAT status (he will end up with the most GS titles, but the calendar year GS would've topped it off).

As for Raducanu, she'll probably do what most young WTA GS winners do. After all, she has never played a top 10 player in her career before, and if not for a horrible choke, she would've had to play Barty in the 4th round.

I think the pressure got to him a little. He said it was a relief to lose. It would explain all the sets he lost leading up to the finals. No big deal since he will win the Australian and be the king.

At least Nadal ties him at the French. lol

The last 5 years or so of Novak's career have been very inconsistent. He has long periods of winning GSs, and long periods where he slumps. And now Medvedev and Thiem have both gotten over the mental block of being slamless. He's the favourite no doubt, but it's less certain than previous years.

Also I'm not convinced Rafa will win the French. He needs to prove that he is over his foot injury. Plus he will be almost 36. And Thiem will probably he out of his slump by then. In this year's French Open he should've lost a set in his 1st round, and he lost a set in the quarter final as well. I'm happy that there is a bit more unpredictability in mens tennis now.

In other news, apparently Serena and Sharapova are friends now xD
