Watch his own interview.. his own assessment.. He could not handle pressure. as he said. What is the definition of choking? wiki below:of course cygs pressure was a factor, but to suggest that a champion of djoker's caliber with 20 slams and several of the highest stakes matches in tennis history lost solely due to nerves or choked is ridiculous. there were so many other factors at play.
Thank you re match prediction!I was absolutely gobsmacked- not so much at the final result, I mean... Medvedev is an ace on hc ofc. It's just the way Djokovic went out. It was so whiskey dick to me. Here he is, playing for history and maybe tennis immortality Idk, and he seemed so listless and flat. To think he wouldn't take a set even was unfathomable to me.
I didn't see your match prediction if you made one or not, but you're spot on so much when it comes to that- may I ask if you saw this coming prior to Sunday?
Couldn't have said it better.It was Daniil's day today but it has been Nole's year
Congrats to the new GS champion
Nole lost the final and the CYGS but maybe he is truly happy with winning the fans tonight
There are other things in life as he mentioned. He was miles ahead of winning because he was too nervous throughout, mentally and physically not ready. He won't think about certain rallies he could have played better. He won't be that nervous in his next Grand Slam final.What do you mean he won’t be upset because he wasńt close and won’t think about it for a long time?? He won 27 out of 28 matches and was on the verge of making history! He won’t care that the match wasn’t close, he only cares that he didn’t win it.
Congratulations to you and all the Medvedev fans.Nothing more to say. Im just over the moon.
Almost flawless performance by Meddy :worship:
Meddy is now Slam Champion :yippee:
He was expected to destroy Djokovic in Melbourne, he got destroyed instead.
In New York, nobody expected that he would get anywhere near the victory, he straightsetted Djokovic.
That's Madveded for you. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Of course he’s going to say that, who wouldn’t. He also said before the final that he would play the match as if it was his last lol, that’s how badly he wanted to win it.There are other things in life as he mentioned.

Yeah he dropped set/s in 6 of the 7 matches he played... Just too much and signified how mediocre he played throughout the tournament.I think the slow starts in all the matches here have finally caught up to him in the final. He really had a lot of mileage to get to there. There's a reason you very rarely see players winning slams while losing 5+ sets along the way. In the end he wasn't fresh enough mentally and physically and Medvedev maintained a good level throughout.
Well deserved first slam for the Russian. It was only a matter of time. And I'm happy he got it before Thugrev and Sissypass as they are overhyped brats.
As for Djokovic it's still only a matter of time before he breaks the slam record. Australia up next, big favorite there. Only slam where he is not the favorite is RG, but he proved he can win even there when RAFA is injured. Hopefully RAFA can mount a serious challenge for the slam race next year.
Yeah, it was reminiscent of Fed's big crying scene at the AO after losing to Nadal--Fed the one who already about 10 slams, Nadal the younger threat--except Djok cried into a towel during the changeover while the match was still in play; Fed cried for what must have been 5 minutes through his and Rafa's speech when the trophy was handed out.NO! I cannot believe what I just read in the sporting news. I had cut the match off in the third set, but Djokovic was crying on the court during the match a la Vera Zvonareva? Even while waiting to receive serve? And before the NYC crowd and a guy seeking his first slam? He is now perpetually disqualified from the goat discussion. Nuff said.
better have some decency and not go there asking who's worse at sobbing after major disappointment out of the big3, rafa had his fair share as well.Yeah, it was reminiscent of Fed's big crying scene at the AO after losing to Nadal--Fed the one who already about 10 slams, Nadal the younger threat--except Djok cried into a towel during the changeover while the match was still in play; Fed cried for what must have been 5 minutes through his and Rafa's speech when the trophy was handed out.
Which was worse????
Go to youtube to see the Djok crying scene. I posted it, but I think the mods took it down.
Yep!... Relatively low key,centred & he's a cool cat.What an amazing press conference from Daniil..really lovely.
