Another Djokovic masterclass of a performance in the finals of a Grand Slam. Novak was MASTERFUL at the net today which he needed to not give Medvedev a fighting chance at beating him. This one probably tastes a little extra sweet as he gets his revenge from 2 years ago when Med stopped him from winning the calendar slam. Med got a break back in the third set and immediately gave it up again. Just completely overclassed by the greatest to ever do it. Basically coasted to the title besides going down 2-0 to fellow Serbian Laslo Djere before showing exactly why he's never out of a match. I know this was in the last round, but no chance Djokovic was losing after hanging up the phone on Shelton. He couldn't be denied.
Djokovic gets a bad rap from some of the media but he's always been pure class and it showed when Med went down in the third set:
Emotional win for him too:
And a beautiful tribute to Kobe too:
What a tournament on both the men's and women's side. Dave has already been talking about how he's going full force next year and might even go catch Sabalenka play in Cancun or Miami. More eyes the better. Goodnight from Queens!
