I doubt it. But he wouldn't say stuff like "I think I played pretty well" (or something in that regard) as Medvedev did after the match.
Define "faster".Yes, so a 2-1 H2H lead isn't that significant and current AO center court is even faster than Dubai or Cincy/Shanghai.
Yep, back when the energiser bunny was in full swing, running down balls for up to six hours. Could only see a vintage Warwinka challenging no.1 like when they used to have the best HC rallies.Tsitsipas would do about as well as Karatsev did in the semis.
You are forgetting who was across the net this morning. Djokovic in the finals on RL is on a completely different level.
The only person (other than earlier versions of Novak himself) in the history of AO who would have had a chance of winning today is 2012 Rafa. Maybe. That's about it.
I don't define faster, but DecoTurf in years 2015-19 wasn't as fast as in 1995-2014. In fact, it was the slowest historically.Define "faster".
By tennis game speed measure courts in Cincy and generally in USA are much faster than Australian courts - because the speed of courts is not just how much of a ball speed is getting lost at contact, but also factors in the height of a bounce. Because higher bounce allows flatter - meaning - faster shots and game.
You never noticed that AO type of tennis is much more tactical and maneuvering, with longer rallies, than US hardcourts game, which is much more of bashing, hit-for-winners game? Because higher bounce allows for much safer, faster, flatter groundstrokes than Australian courts.
US hardcourts is - in terms of average ball speed during the game - the fastest game around.
US Open often allowed super aggressive players like Del Potro or Cilic to win. While AO has always been a land where best returners in the game prospered. Like Agassi or Djokovic.
Didn't he beat andy in USO 2014 in 4 sets?I don't define faster, but DecoTurf in years 2015-19 wasn't as fast as in 1995-2014. In fact, it was the slowest historically.
Djokovic is not a bad fast hardcourt player at all, he didn't meet Murray at USO after 2012, but I am sure he'd have been able to beat him there.
Yes, you are right, I totally forgot that one somehow. Sorry for the blackoutDidn't he beat andy in USO 2014 in 4 sets?
