A hype was something you invented. We all knew (well sensible tennis fans) he will have up and downs. And that his 2019 will in no way be a proof that he will win 5+ slams. You lot should just calm your tits and watch matches, stupid predictions also result in huge disappointments. Typical.
He will still be within big 4 challengers next season. He threw this match obviously for some reason, either Russian mafia or trying to help Nadal gain YE#1. Doing thumbs up on every point celebrating for Nadal.
A "prisoner of the moment" thread, but there is some truth to it. I need to see Medvedev go through a tough period and come back to take him as a big time player. What he did was catch a good wave and ride it for months. It's gonna end and how he reacts to it will show a lot.
This is equally as reactive as the people proclaiming him a multi-slam champion after his good run.
It'll be interesting to see how he starts next season, and see what he works on during the off season. I feel like that will be a much better guide to what his potential is next year, rather than just reacting to his form right now, or his form on the US hard courts.
