"And she proved it tonight. I mean that was hit. Twenty match win interrupt. It's been over east. She's wellstone matched the confidence that you would get from that really just propelled. But she was impressive. I mean both gil struggled really on sieve. didn't they. I think brady at one point that i it was about fifty six percent offensive in a she was getting serpa frustrated with that so it wasn't the best level of tennis in that first step but certainly side. I settled into it but niamey. She's a classy players. Don't she and she did mention afterwards that she was sawing. It's even more so in this grand slam. Because she just wanted it so badly totally. I mean she has proven that right now. She is the best tennis player in the world. She's won the last two slam. She's played and she's now four times slam champ. How does this change now me status as potentially if the fig ahead in women's tennis yeah i think she's a sort of been growing in about the last couple years you know. We knew that shatter big breakout win at the. Us open a few years ago and then splashed on here to win in two thousand nineteen slowly growing into that role. I think she's going to be the face of the tokyo olympics when they come around this summer. I think that's something that she's really looking forward to. She's been very particular about the team. She's built around her saying that she wants to be a vessel for their hard work as a team. I think she's proving not not not just matched by match but point by point. And that's how you build really legends out on a sporting cortra- field and unhesitating. She dedicated her grand slam win not to them specifically they ask so important to her as you say. I think the next challenge now is getting more comfortable on surfaces at roland garros and obviously the grass at wimbledon because they're the tree slams that she hasn't been able to win yet but let's she's twenty three full from what about if it isn't fit honestly. She's she's doing so well and she did say that. Her biggest goal the pixar. We'll have to wait and see where she goes see. I'm looking forward to it.

While the russian authors seeking his twenty first consecutive win and first major title to preview the match. I'm joined by not edwards and commentator. Nick mcardle nick at the start of in fact two weeks before this we had you on the show podcast and you picked this matchup is that what led you to make that cole way back. Then let's say lucked out. Let's be honest that wasn't necessarily total. Total fluke made many wrong picks before but coming in you know we talk about the twenty one matches in a row for osaka. It's twenty in a row for daniil. Medvedev the non includes a win over novak djokovic close twenty twenty i think medvedev has really come into his own as someone expects himself not only to go deep. Atp events which we've seen the last couple of years but now to really do at at the grand slam so the drop laid out for him. I think he's played to each match to the level now. Can he bring an eight time. Grand slam australian open champ. Seventeen time major winner novak djokovic. Can he meet that level in a final thoughts really eighty s. What i love most is after medvedev bates itsy pass in that semi final is that he said stride away. All the pressure is on novak. He just load him up because he's plight fonsi before and never lost and it sorta. But i love how he just playfully. Put that out there and look. I think he'll come at. He'll show you'll be a little bit nervous. But i think he's just going to swing freely and that backhands i mean. Gosh they both have terrific backhands. But it's going to be like jock itch playing a twenty five year old vision of himself. It's going to be such an interesting match. I really count. Wait for the all similar. It can not just in court croff necessarily but as personalities both very eloquent and sort of personable somewhat chiming in front of the camera but they do have this white line fever as we know totally. I love those points that you've made and i think medvedeva's become more comfortable without. We sought the us open a couple years ago in the crowd. Really got against him and he used that as fuel which i think djokovic has have that in the past that in the past for sure for sure for jovic against rafa roger. He's felt that too. I really think that it is an opportunity for medvedev lake. Nona saying just swing for the fences and the scary thing is when he swings for the fences. Oftentimes the ball goes in. And i really think he's going to use that experience of beating novak in london last year at the atp finals. He'll really be geared up by that. Yeah i think so too. And i'm really looking forward to. I think the one area that novak can probably try to exploit daniels is that netplay. He's not very good. Let's let's be honest when it comes to netplay so if he can drawer him in a little bit and maybe draw that out. I think that puts pressure on daniel. Bit amid gets off to a flying start is going to be hard to stop. We've been flawless. So far in your prediction to get this for that amount of sets from each of you i always. I always stick with my pick to start a tournament. So i picked medvedev to this tournament. And i'm going to stay with him but let's play a classic on sunday night. The final night of what's been an incredible tournament medvedev and five. That makes him look all change. It up just slightly lightly. I'm gonna say the russian in full bought who the fans picking selene. Alexander went to find out. What do you think who spend win the men's singles. Final me too. Because he's so experienced and he's done it before. Yeah and just a veteran at the first grand slam sir. I think yeah he's consistency. Yeah just he's able to maintain that so hopefully wins again. I want medvedev. I like medvedev. He's good yeah. I think it's time for someone. New who think the joke is going to win. That's been watching the media and everyone's backing him. I think he's unbeatable. Actually think it'll go the other way just for something different. He hasn't done as well here in the past. And i think that he's got good crowd. Support behind him djokovic. Hopefully we like djokovic's it's just one of the five. I think yeah i agree. I think he probably had to differently bridge. Because he's.

"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Out sometimes. Y- you don. I can say that. I really want to do them. But this works for every enj-. Although i i do slightly. Sorry for photographers. Yes from l. about that. Yeah she she said. This is a nightmare. Because i wonder whether now with medvedev matches they're going to sort of reframe and go for the great loser shots because know they're not gonna get anything out of medvedev although if you just capture that peak of the shrug whether lips are their downturn in the shoulders are up you do with a think really know if he becomes so known present present in the public consciousness that people know it i think at this stage i get that it's about him owning it to this degree is i quite liked the idea that the opponents didn't know that that's what he was doing. I i love the sort that the dow might be looking across the net and thinking beat man. It seems to me nothing to him. I still think cool. He's that cool that he doesn t even that it's not a big deal but it's not that is it because he's because he's owned it and said this is my thing i think it negates stopped. Personally he's not trying to pretend that he doesn't care. Will these two too cool to care. He's telling you. I really care but i want to have a cool thing but it wouldn't it be cooler if he really didn't know isn't cool or okay. He did care but they didn't know you cared. That's the that's the thing. I think it's cool to care. And it's fine for to know you care. This is a public service broadcast from the tennis. Podcasts he's like a. wwe character is our love it. so this isn't this isn't the metronomic winning titles than david. This is the velociraptor coming of age before our is returning to his former glories right. He's just he's just balanced it catherine to perfection. He's balanced that euphoric moment of going to war with a new york crowd on these. He's he's married that winning and also having a twin clinton that we kind of know about. But you know. I'm really liking reluctant. And mike word was his tennis. Good as well today. I do hope we're still going to get some twenty nine thousand nine. Us open antics from him. Of course we will not forget what he said to the to the empire. The your siphoned recently. Yeah for sure he What did he say it was against team because he had he had a very small meltdown in that first set against team at the us open where he He disagreed with a call actually crossed the net to go and look at it which is a big yes no no and then and then he said something like my sincere apologies to the us open. I killed killed somebody. My sincere apologies. Incredible sarcasm. but but he's shown that he can win even when he's doing well okay. Maybe not quite win. Didn't win the us open last year but he can still have brilliant results while doing all that kind of stuff but also he can win when he's in just completely in the so nike was in this week. He does seem to have both traits which is perfect because that makes me think that hopefully we will see more antics from him because antics fine but antics. Winning is is such a great combination especially winning the way because his kids game is really interesting especially on these faster surfaces like an indoors the way he just. It's almost like he computer game where you have a secret weapon and you just decide you just decide when to utilize it and you flick the switch. And that's what he did in team did not seem to know that that was coming. It's almost like a computer game where you don't know the controls when you start and you have to figure them out as you go and by the end you're an absolute pro kind of what he's done in these those two matches and i think he he really kind of reward you if you watch the whole match. That's very very true. He's he's not a highlights. No real plan does hit some incredible shots which grateful highlight reels. But the actual enjoyment for medvedev comes from seeing it through from start to finish because you see all the options at his disposal and you see him changed the way he's playing and that is that is so satisfying. I think for anyone who just enjoys watching tennis being played this. This is so much to kind of learn from him. I think i. I wasn't able to attend the dominic. Thiem press conference because i was recording highlights links at the time. But i think he. I think he's confused. I think he might be confused about why he lost that match. I'd do you think he understands why he lost that much. I mean he he a little bit like medvedev talking about them match the. Us open team. Said i only replied one. There's any one point. I regret in the home pretty much the whole matter. He said I think. I think he is what he was up against tonight. Exactly but it's far more simple to if it's you know should have done this differently. I mean yeah. I don't think visit his peak today even in that first set the that he one. I don't think it was at a peak. Dominic thiem by any means a tool. Yeah i wonder if he really. I wonder if he really understands why he why he lost. I think he. I think he seemed a bit bamboozled in that in that third set. What do you think i definitely think. He wasn't at his best today team. But i think a lot of that is because of what medvedev was doing to probably Along gates the matches and elam gates the rallies and just makes you think he just ties ties opponents. That's a little. But i think but i think maybe dominic thiem would think. Yeah but that's what jackovitch i hit through. I've got his number. I a hang tag off on patient or wait for moment and then i explode. That's the formula and if it's good enough against the world number one wasn't it good enough today. You said the the way that he's confusing him as tarring and making him have to think differently because suddenly off way through the match. She's coming to twenty times in a sense. I mean that's just extraordinary. And that isn't something that i guess djokovic does he does. He does a very rich like qualities that solidity from the baseline. We don't really see yovich. Just suddenly come to the net twenty times in a set. I guess team what i would say is This is this is one match and did beat medvedev a few weeks ago. The us open. I think they're going to have an interesting rivalry. And i think you could kind of compare it to sit surpass last year. You know team that final to sit surpass but that doesn't necessarily mean that sits a pass got the better of the rivalry. It meant that they were going to be close in the future and teams investor. Five is different vibe is different. Teams teams trajectories still so incredibly good and upwards. This is just a minor bump in the road that you'll have to think about when he next plays medvedev but i think it'd be a stretch to say that he's got a matchup problem with methodist. Just based on this by the way We tweets from stephen malloy one of alison. Who was entertains me with his tweets and and he actually said something here that i found really It'll stay with me. May i say that medvedev is the perfect demonstration of on court. Coaching should never be allowed. His massive skill is his ability to problem solve in real time and technically changed his approach to turn a match. Why should this be negated for cheap tv entertainment. very compelling. i'm not disagreeing with it. I would say tv. Entertainment is not cheap. Pays the bills. I didn't mean.
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"I serves and his his service games taking ninety seconds and the donald service games. We're taking about seven minutes. The dow was the one hanging on at the start. But i think i think i put on a twitter account that it was. It was a meeting of tennis minds tonight. And i think i think because the uso per final was so long and grueling and we saw how much took out of nadal. i've i've i've thought of this action physical terms. I've thought of it as a big battle between to just sort of prime athletes but actually it was kind of a bit of a chess match out there and it was a really interesting tactical match. And the dow figured it out and mannix to neutralize strengths of medvedev he hit so many sliced backhands and to stop being able to hit it up high and take it in. He hit his forehand down the line fantastically and he came into the net. Various stupidly sometimes. Serve and volleying. And i thought it was just a brilliant tactical performance from the dow but then it seemed like once meant. The dave broke back when the door was serving for the match and didn't play great game but medvedev paid a brilliant game we made always returns and deepen and really went out and won that game then it kind of felt like it switched again. Medvedev made the made the changes and then was the one in control throughout that third set. And yeah i just. I just really admired the way. They both thought out there and thought their way through the problems. And you could. You could see them. Changing their games. During the match was it was a fascinating watch from from a tactical point of view though Do you feel that for medvedev. Took that break of serve back. When he was down seven for the match ordina dow did he choke. It's no i don. I i don't think it was. I don't think it was a shock. You consider he. I think he got four or five. I in in that game. You know notable foltz Medvedev's returned brilliantly. Return win is but he writes an adults feet Throughout that game so might not have been adults best game but it definitely wasn't choke and there was a point in the tiebreak. I think it was four. Three in the tie-break the dial had a forehand that he probably should have put away but he just went one direction and method of guests the right direction. Frankly got lucky he. He framed a shot which over nida's head lobbed him and it went in and that that seemed to change the tiebreak. It was just a very small moment that and you could say dr. That is best. Wouldn't have hit it. That way would have hit it into the open space but it was. It was a little bit lucky. That moment for medvedev Third then then performed the an apology. Fist-bump transition yes marvelous. Which is just the best. That's one. Admission and apology can become a cell Celebrate fist-bump pump. Yeah i think to play that back if that we need to get a gift of that could come in So yeah the couple of points. I just wanted to make a when you're talking about the sliced backhand there was one rally where i think. The dow drifted about eight six cessive back and slices over the net and just kept on doing it. An- and medvedev kept tone pinpointing the backhand rolling his cross-court forehand to its or an inside out backhand to it and the dials slice in an floating and drifting or floating floating floating boom down the like the background and i just love that that moment of decision of right trigger is being pulled now and such a clever on and look at. He didn't win the match. But i i agree with you. I really enjoyed watching the tactical battle between the city in that regard got. I've got a little image. That i want to give you for medvedev that i've just come up with to me. Medvedev reminds me of a velociraptor from the domestic partner movies. The way the hymns know the absolutely and the t have little tiny hands the vicious little dinosaurs. That just are incredibly quick and Awful in the way they come at you when they've got chance i've gone opening. They are vicious and they will not let it go and they will stop at nothing on a compact. They not another quote dip the dough. Casey i want to like about method has come up with. This is because the moment he gets a sniff blood on the court. He's on you. he's he goes for you. The very clever veloce owner is it. The t rex is that have one of. Them's very clear. All of this. Knowledge is from joseph. Paul coffee is declared. She's the one that's defeated via the reflection in the oven. Yes yes that's how they escaped from the velociraptor dominate teams. Go to d- tomorrow and then bring following three this allergy to be started it so we see in jersey films to yes and also david. No one says the jurassic park films. That's not a thing it's jurassic park and then some subsequent movies they made to which you know if you enjoy them fine. But that's out saying. Have you seen the grease movies are stories to in with. Greece is lights out. Resilient nazi thing okay hold failed and michelle pfeiffer favor and wrap this portion of the podcast up brutal okay So yeah i mean you know they go pasha more ugly free nickname for the velociraptor. Right matt what. I do like about medvedev is i didn't use to understand him a toll. I didn't understand how he was good. I do think you're alone there. I mean tim. Henman still seems to be a bit confused. He's unorthodox and he is deceptive. I still think he is. But i think we're learning about what. What makes them good how he wins. These matches and i've really enjoyed seeing that development over the last year and i would actually say a similar thing about team team is satisfying as someone who watches tennis all the year round because we've literally witnessed him get better on harcourt's before and he's been incremental but it's been solid and sustained and and that's quite fulfilling and satisfying. I think when you're watching you. You're aware that it isn't just a flash in the pan its development and progress. And that's kind of what you want to see. I think so. I think that both similar in that respect in terms of understanding of them has developed quite a lot yet. We've been on. We've been on a journey with them by haven't ways like no one ever win strictly if they're really into in week one. No you've got to go on a juicy danny mac upset about no one remembers danny mac. He was amazing. Yeah he was he had had professional. Don's trading matt mean. He was so good in we. Yeah yeah. I'll have to check with my kids that we're talking about because i watched that Right so we've got team against medvedev in the final and the dow so his press conference afterwards and You know he he. He gave some very interesting answers particularly about. We'll talk about australia. But he's again very philosophical about the seriousness of the situation. And how he doesn't want to be a big deal really..
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"And he's just when he plays his best. He's still the best. And i think that the i still think he plays immaculate. Tennis is beautiful to watch in terms of his just how functional everything is and his knowledge of his own game and all that sort of thing but made it sound say sexy david to watch in terms of how functional it just feels like there's no weakness and i any looks pristine even even ways dress today. Just everything was so neat. He gets to three online medvedev medvedev. He was a mess. Today wasn't there. He's hairs all over the place he's ripping off pieces of plastic from his legs and he's chucking them over the side and he just looks disheveled but by the way i got set wrong it was. The second set wasn't the medved won against chuck rich and the australian open match in two thousand nine hundred ninety seven six seven five and thai brighton and he lost the next two six two six three correcting ourselves. Can i say received wisdom. Not perceived wisdom came out of my mouth. I thought that's not right. But i can't think about. I think what is right because it's been a long day for twelve. Just one thing. I would say is that jakovich hasn't been having these struggles in the slams. I mean he's not. He's not one the to slam since since the resumption of tennis but it hasn't been because he's Lost to one of these younger generation. I do think team and medvedev closing the gap but it has felt like the atp finals has been this kind of slightly strange outlined at the end of the last few seasons where with dimitrov winning and then zverev and then sit surpass. It's kind of set us up for this changing of the guard moment going into the new year and it just hasn't happened. at all. i mean federer djokovic djokovic won the last three australian open so again i think that feeds into the broader theory of motivation and novak djokovic disability to peak and i don't know i guess i guess wanna djokovic skills in these five sets as he knows just how to win over five sets he can have energy drops but he can still come through them and i. I still think he's got the ability so whether these whether these little struggles and motivation problems do translate to the slams. I just don't necessarily think they will. But as you think. The broader point is that team and medvedev playing really good tennis and if they can start stepping up at the sam's then yeah threes threes. A big gap for four djokovic. Still i also still wonder whether at some point all of the politics in tennis of the call that jock itch involves himself in. Whether it's going to catch up to him just the energy levels that it takes so far he's managed to compartmentalize and juggle and do both Throw his energies into trying to organize the the pta professional tennis players association. That was this break breakaway union. That he he talked about at the. Us open organized. The big photo on the on the court would fifty odd players. Okay but i mean it's a lot of energy and he's constantly being asked about it and when he's asked about it his says it ten minutes long you know he's going into massive great depth and detail and and i just feel that the mental energy that takes is is significant and goran ivanisevic vita his two coaches. Do not think he should be exhausting himself at all of that but but it it clearly means something to him and he's carried on doing it and i just wonder whether at some point it's going to catch up to him on the court and there's no sign that he intends to not be involved with the politics of the sports we we we read out last night. Tweet from sunny breaks about how he was on the list of nominees alongside Pospisil to rejoin the play council which with the elections coming up and that's due be decided at the start of the year. He came out firing and his press conference today and he wasn't happy with with what was reported he was. He gave a very very long detailed answer but the gist of it was that he said i did not apply to be on the council. I was nominated by a group of players No suggestion that you turned down that nomination But see signs that he's he's honored to be nominated for it and he doesn't see any conflict of interest he said between the fact that he's tried to set up a separate players union and is looking at going back on the player council of the actual. Atp tall but he's been told. I think today that the board that made the decision that you can't do bios that you can't be organizing the separate entity and beyond the council at the same time which i mean to me. I just assumed that that was the was given in as much as the other council members had had forced them to resign hung. they really they. They'd said you know if you're going to do this. You've got off the council So he sounded pretty miffed That he had been told this by the board and that he'd got a guy back in him and prosper sort of got to regroup was radi what he said and think again and decide what their next moves are going to be. But i don't sense any desire to move away from the politics in the game. Catherine and i just i just wanted to at some point. Here he is what he thirty three I just wanted to win that. That could end up catching up to him on the court. I would make two points. I think it's interesting because we always think that it hasn't caught up with him but we don't actually have any sort of psalm of him not being involved so we don't actually know how he would be doing if he if he wasn't involved. It does strike me sometimes. He's been the best player for the last ten years. How is he not kind of already. In the lead of the grand slams. Would he be doing even better if he didn't have everything else going on. And i think that's maybe the point the action mary inviter and yanko salvage told you on in your interview with him last year on the podcast. David i think they may be think is harming him. Even though we often think that he can compartmentalize and still have of course he is still winning those of slams and winning local tournaments while doing it but maybe the point is could he be doing even better but i do think there is also the point. It needs to be made that. It's it's part of who he is. It's it's ingrained in him to get involved in the politics and do what he perceives to be right. And i think it kind of goes hand in hand with his with his tennis in that respect. I'm not necessarily sure he would have the same fire or interest to be playing tennis. If he wasn't also involving himself in those of other activities and one of them being the politics so i think it might end up kind of lengthening his career in a way and him wanting to keep keep involved in politics and keep playing and keep doing the two things hand in hand but whether it actually is impacting his own court performance. I just think it's is impossible to say early. It's like asking david. Laws be less stressed more productive. Iffy got more sleep in. Didn't have days at three o'clock in the morning redundant question his i mean. How many years have you said to me just half a holiday. This time you know. And don't have ideas. listen start. Message innis detroit but anyway. Yeah no i take your point. It's very interesting. So done in medvedev is through. He's top of the group. He's into the semifinals novak djokovic now face alexander zverev in a straight shootout anti t on on friday. Yes we like straight shutouts where there is no suggestion that a percentage of games calculations will be taking place customer..
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"I think there's two ways of looking at it you can. you can think. Maybe it's him evolving his game him developing his game adding another layer. Possibly it is but to me it comes across more bailout. And that was what i think that was greg set skis reading of it as well on on the prime coverage and it's almost like he's he's realized he's perhaps lost a little something not quite able to go into the trenches with a medvedev at the atp finals or with an adopted in the road on garros final and he's kind of overcompensating by coming up with a drop shot. That is actually making things. Worse i mean medvedev got to all of them really as they put them all away. And if i- i think i want jackovic's to be drop-shotting me rather than being defiant and saying come on then i'm gonna keep going toe to toe with you. I'm novak djokovic. I'm the world number-one so almost like he just gave something away. And i think it probably is tied up with this motivation. He doesn't quite have in him. But just i find it really interesting. If they are to me again djokovic is not out of this tournament he can still get through the group he could meet medvedev again in the final. If that does happen. I'd be fascinated whether djokovic has got the reserves to kind of put the dropped shoulder way. Say no. i don't necessarily need it to beat you. I compete with my own game. I just need to dig in and do it Yeah it's absolutely absolutely fascinating. That how jovic motivation affects how he plays. I would say it was kind of my reading. The match makes me desperate to see them. Play over the best of five sets in the grand slam again. And and i would love to see to the australian open because they played the two or three years ago when medvedev was coming up when he was really starting to make strides And they and win the first round when the first set rather see just a gut wrenching sort of muscle sue. The muscles were screaming in both players because there were being pushed sinew stretching rallies after another and i think he's about one hundred seventy degrees that day for medved medvedev won that first set and he was a broken man after it and jock itch ended up winning quite easily after that. But you saw for set. How the match up just was i was really close stylistically. He could go toe to toe with him. He just couldn't stay with him for long enough and we've had a lot's happened since then i mean they've played a number three sent matches medvedev's been winning winning them winning a lot of them and we haven't seen them play over the best to five with the ultimate stakes for jock itch to to to go for at a grand slam. And if you had a medvedev like this because what really strikes me is. I don't think medvedev could look fresher. He couldn't learn more up for it. He's absolutely bursting to get it. Get it people at the moment. I think i probably make him the favorite for for this title right now. The way he looks to me he just looks so up for it. Everything is appetite. He's ravenous for this title and and he's got energy to spare so i find that quite exciting because so often matches just compromised by fatigue. And that isn't the case right now. And i really do think. Medvedev has developed physically since that match at the australian. Open that you're talking about. I think he would be able to laugh with jackovic's now physically and that's one of the things that i find so refreshing about watching him. You know it was. It was three all in this match was a physical match. A lot of other players. I would have been waiting for them to implode or fall apart against york of i don't want to. I mean i'm going to. I want to single people out but there are certain players for example the two alternate so this tournament if shop valvo bertini had been planning that match against york of h i would have expected them their level to drop jackovitch kind of race away. But i didn't ever have that doubts about medvedev. I just kind of trusted that he was ready for this challenge. And that's the other thing the quote he gave before this match was. I like playing jackovitch. That i like the long you know. There's a bit of a masochist in there is and it is refreshing to have someone who actually enjoys that challenge and is willing to embrace it and medvedev absolutely is that this matchup and a kind of a couple of head. To heads of novak djokovic is a sort of put put a couple of my sort of assumptions about tennis matchups in three throws them into question. The sort of the wisdom is that. What's the the worst kind of chop is to players that play the same way with sort of the least competitive match up. When one is just clearly better than the other the old for arrogance nidal adage never stood a chance against the dog. Because it's kinda the same player just with respect button to throw. Obviously one is far superior jovic trickiest matchups certainly latterly. The you know ones that spring to mind to me Medvedev and roberta battiste riggott and that throws all of it into a bit of a spin for me. I can't quite make sense of it. But then i will say think stab rinker. He's caused jovic problems even when you're which has been in is obsolete prime and that's that's a different kettle official together. That is somebody being aggressive in. And taking control of rally in pulling the trigger earlier than than Not wanting to get into the trenches. So i don't know what's up and what's down anymore. Now is the same thought occurred to me that perhaps shouldn't work stylistically but it but it kinda does but i think paths with medvedev. The point is maybe jovic at the moment. That current djokovic isn't far superior to medvedev in the same way the not always was far superior to of course he's a superior plag- generally just perhaps at the moment there that quite close and i think maybe with battista goo them most interesting matches have been the event which on the big events i just think of the top of my head. Battista beat him in doha. Haulier and maybe indian wells on miami. I think basically not the slams and perhaps perhaps that's the point the maybe in those events vich hasn't quite been prepared to dig deep either and he knows that he has to against someone like about these two. He's not going to offer any any kind of up in stock of still gets him. I think paid in the wimbledon semifinal didn't last year and it was a bit of a struggle but you're rich got through it and he did dig deep it does he does peak now djokovic kisses i was gonna say i mean that that that sort of sub theory you've just posited feeds into the broader theory about engine and made vacation doesn't it. He's also learn how to win when he's kind of hanging on at the slam city team final That he won the australian open. When you know you could easily have expected that momentum wise that was going to end up going against him but he just about got over the line and then of course the wimbledon final against federal. When really he. He felt second best on the day but he ended up winning So it's it the next stage of his career. Obviously we've we've got a lot going on in the world of the moment but the the next stage of his career when those matches no big finals type place. It's just i find his career really interesting now. Particularly as he's he's still got some considerable daylight to make up with federal and the dow is three grand slams between them. He's got to find the kind of that assumption. Oh you know. He's younger than the others..
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Random supposed to say. Thank you for giving us a nice introduction but since you've made fun of me losing the predictions competition not just losing it. I should say utterly humiliated by about twenty-five different people over the course of the last year. And yes i am going to have to relinquish my crown and stop wearing the t shirt that i'm wearing right now. Which says twenty nine team predictions champion. Anyway ren thank you for your support. I'll try and get over. It katharine how you doing. I am fine. Thank you very much. I enjoyed friends contribution to the show very much. Thank you yeah i mean. Frankly wouldn't have mattered. If you're back she would have just been quite happy to start the show like that big fan fan of of when. Okay matt roberts how you hopefully you're going to be nice to me. I'm fine thank you. But i am keen to points out that you actually beaten by thirty one people david. I've just pulled up. Predictions leaderboard and ran. Was one of those. Sorry david i usually love your stats. You can shove frankly right. Let's talk about tennis today to rain and get onto a better foot because we have had a match. That was much hyped tonight. Between daniel medvedev and novak djokovic for obvious reasons which the world number one five time champion at The the toll finals four of them at the oh to medvedev suddenly hitting a rich vein of form winning paris winning very comfortably against zander's verify couple of days ago here they were facing off and for six games it was absolutely electric and the and the rallies were fabulous Pushing each of the pillow to on suddenly dunham have one six three six two In probably less than later so what happened. What was your read of of the match. Catherine running inside the stadium took into the pundits. You have for amazon prime video. What what was the fear. I mean very clearly meant played extremely well and now has i think the the confidence and belief he can maintain that level against the top players. I don't think he. He has the the grains of self doubt that most young plays inevitably have regardless of their sort of baseline confidence level. And i think you know we. We discussed this on. Whatsapp is sort of. Put the the fruits of our discussion to to both the pundits that we had in the studio often much we had about croft and and greg gerski and you know all all i think. Collective theory was that jovic. Rhys wanted to win that much. He wants to win this tournament and he. He played fine today. He came up against at that. Went toe to toe with him. I was coming out on top. And i think it became pretty clear of the five or six games that jovic was going to have to go deep into the trenches in order to contend tonight and. I don't think i would have been a conscious decision. I don't think though that he had the stomach for the the depths that would have been required so i don't think it's as simple as i didn't find certain tank the match. I don't think that happened tool. I think medvedev was exceptional. I think that jovic would have been a bitter worked by somebody beating him at his own game But i don't think jovic had the depths to goatee tonight. And i and i don't want to agree with myself if a few days ago but that is what i'm about to do. I think had something like the year end number one ranking potentially been on the line in the match tonight i think perhaps those steps would have been available to him. yeah well. I think we've seen this a few times. I feel at the finals with jackovitch in the round robin stages and we didn't quite time after the match i was suddenly thought a really want to look up some of his results and see the years that he's gone all the way. But he's lost a round robin match. Because i particularly remember warm where he lost to federer when federal was really struggling in that rivalry djokovic dominating him and suddenly federal got this win a few years ago the atp finals in the round robin stages but then they met in the final and jackovitch crunched him different player together. And it's just edges knit and i. I really don't think surprising. It's i feel like it's a really human thing for. I think for a lot of players in a round robin scenario. It's just not absolute jeopardy but also when you consider just how much he has one. How many grants times he's won. How many year end finals. He's one when you've got to go into those deep waters. that medvedev is dragging you into. It's not like nadal in the us open final. who's prepared to give his last drop. And we've seen with djokovic in grand finals where he's prepared to just be carried off. The goal to be has to be. This is not that and i also think does show a distinction between the daland and jock itch and probably nidal and everybody because he just doesn't have that set of gear shift when it's not going when when he's had a disappointment when he played well in the as blow he doesn't stop coming. Yeah dull stepping onto a tennis court is sort of a a implicit agreement not to whatever depths are required if him to try and win that tennis much. I mean shouldn't than no other options are even on the table for him. But he is the exception official. What were will feelings watching it that well. We agree with everything you've said. I think there's got to be an explanation for jackovich's record at this tournament over the last four or five years the fact that he's not one and even though he's sort of being the best player in the world doing all those years is the has to be something in that and i do think it is a motivation thing. thing that he's not quite prepared to dig in and i think round robin probably does play a part in that. As you said david. I also felt like it was a little bit of a match up thing. A little bit of a credit to medvedev because as you said djokovic playing really well for forty minutes hitting hitting the ball brilliantly but medvedev was staying with him and i found something tim henman said in the commentary really interesting about how one of the qualities of greatness in a way is stubbornness and i suppose the positive side of that you would call it a belief in your own game kind of trusting your own game and i think for forty minutes jovic playing his own game but he was realizing that medvedev was living with him and going toe to toe with him and kind of the majority of the long points. What medvedev was doing. And i think that panicked novak djokovic little bit and then he started to use so many drop shots and i'm really fascinated by the of its dropshot. The moment i was. I found it really interesting. In the on garrett's final against the dollar..
Longtime ATP Tour Insider Weller Evans
"Everyone John. With was were so streaming tennis podcast everyone twelve, our guest as we do Beller Evan any insider will recognize sellers name the consummate timoth insider he worked for the ATP Tour for many years his. Was Tour Manager for the most part, but he also was. A fixer, a pragmatists they council guidance counselor. One of the tour employees who work with the players week in week out was in the locker room and really knows that the mechanics of tennis mechanic of the tour better than anyone he also briefly served on the. Board, last year and part of this year. So this is a a wide ranging conversation with a crew tennis. Insider we talk a bit about tennis in twenty twenty the we talk about this more stories from. Welders career in also been about how to get into tennis There are roles into score even if. You do not hit a ball at a professional level and weller someone who spent his whole career in tennis and only a few of those as a player. So here's a wide ranging conversation with a true tennis insider. Here's Willer Evans first of all Weller Evans thank you for. Thank you for doing this I appreciate this. Model John It's It's a pleasure. I have to congratulate you in that You know it's to be quite Khuda get both Jerry. Seinfeld, and Weller Evans. As interviews within a month of one another. Low Bar just make a few jokes in Yiddish and everyone everyone goes home. Happy. No but we passed up no opportunity to talk tennis and I was saying in the Intro I feel like you are. You're the perfect person to help make some sense of these strange times because you are someone, it's always understood the mechanics and have the insider perspective. and. Our Voice of reason and I figured I wanNA hear a bit about your backstory in some sort of historic progressives. But but help us make sense of tennis in Twenty Twenty How How are you sensing? This is going and what's your take on sort of gray tennis in this work around year? Well I think we're fortunate to be playing tennis at all and to actually have had. Three of the four slams played. This year I think is a remarkable accomplishment. Don't you? Yep Absolutely. especially. Given the challenges of of tennis compared to other sports You know it's it's not it's not as simple as. You, you've got thirty teens in everyone's GonNa, lock themselves in a bubble together. To, two hundred and fifty six players from all over the world is is a big challenge. What do you make about the rest of it? I? Mean we have. Cologne one in Cologne to this week, which sounds like Competing. Hugo boss. Fragrance collection we have carry over points we have. To joke of, it's not playing Paris because he's disincentivize because of the point structure what's your take on? Tennis outside of outside of the three majors we were able to play. Well just. To sort of focus for a second on the ranking system. And and what we had to do and I apologize in advance for referring. To. The ATP as we but when you work for an Organization for twenty five years and you stay so closely connected to it it's inevitable that you end up referring to what they do as as we but. You know. The ranking system has to be addressed. Once we took such a long off from tournaments. and. You enter. That challenge you know with the premise that there's not going to be a perfect system. Heck. Probably, our current ranking system is not perfect. But realizing that there's probably not even an optimum way to accomplish all that needs to be accomplished. So is it? It really was a challenge for sure but You know I think the ATP's priority was always to. Try to continue to have a fair and accurate evaluation of. Player on court performance, which also has credibility with our fans and I think if you look at the rankings as they currently stand I, think the ADP has accomplished. You know accomplish that goal. With Roger. Not Be fit enough to play the world tour finals I would. Like to think that a a guy who's been really hot since we return to the court Andrei Rubel who actually was was. INFLA-. Go even before the suspension is going to make the world tour finals I'm sure there are people who? Are. Going ask. Why Medvedev? is going to be in there when he hasn't really. You. Duplicated. The success that he had last year an-and. CARNOT boost has. Left back into everybody's consciousness and. He may or may not make it to London. So I'm sure they'll be people who. You might question that but I think on the whole the ranking system and the rankings that we have currently even given the the cogut accommodations that were made. With with our fats.
US Open Day 14 - Thiem at last; Zverev devastated
"I'M ALMOST THERE CAN BE A. A third I've just called the name of mine wrong. What was it called ready What's his real name? I'm on my second bid David. Leads you've just opened third Tonia. Catherine. It's an Aq-. It's an Eq-. Right okay. So. Yeah. I'm drinking San Miguel apparently others call semi Guel. Not to worry about three of them. We've just watched the men's singles final. It is the sort of final that makes me feel like I've had about five days. Even if I haven't because it's. A meandering delirious. I don't really know how to sum it up. It was just but. Yeah I'm slightly worried that the match is just a big blur in my mind and I'm going to struggle to talk about what actually happened. I can remember very strongly the feeling of it happening and how I felt watching it. I think that will be etched into my mind forever because it was one of those matches by the end I was just so an egg tense for both players A. But trying to rationalize what happened might be quite a difficult task I think. Is a bit light last year's final when ref on the Dow lead two sets to love and a break. And that looked over and then suddenly it was in a fifth set is it bit lineup? No. I didn't think. It was follow quality I would say. I thought I thought. was really good like the whole time. This one was patchy. But the idea of it being not that interesting because looking like going to be a straight sets win. And then suddenly you don't want the match to end and you wanted to go on forever in that sense, it was similar. But I don't think quality-wise or. Sort of the reasons for why ended up being such a dramatic match were that similar tall I also think that Medvedev's comeback last year was completely unexpected I think again somebody like. Nidal or not somebody like against Nidal, if love down in your first Grand Slam final. Very few people are predicting away back I think even at sets breakdown today. People will. I think most people watching. Were waiting dominate team to wake up and. Waiting for something that felt like, surely, it has to happen surely at some stage today even if it's only. A small research and see and I am a break back pushing the set to a tiebreak. Winning a set. People were waiting to see the real. Dominic team. It felt. It felt like only a matter of time whether he could get it together. In time. Before it was either. But for me, that was quite crucial difference in how this one felt. Lost felt I will remember this match I think in the long run for the final set and for the final set tiebreak but. You can't have that without the other stuff that comes before just two guys. So, let's talk about that talk about the start of the match. And how we it was. It was weird. It was I mean festival Amazon deserve. Totally, different men to the guy who came out against public arena buster looked. Just, totally paralyzed with nerves and unable to play his normal game. He looked free now there for those first two sets, he looked languid he has. He has a languid power. Unlike, anybody else I think when you he said of generates speed of shot whether it's the serve of one hundred and seventy seven miles now or four hundred. That's kind of hit the back fence without you realizing he's actually hit it that hard. I don't think anybody else gives me that. kind of feeling out on the circuit of the moment you can. I can feel the power of everybody else is almost a slight of hand the way he does it, but he was timing the ball way way better and also the intent was there and he was coming into the net I mean the statistics on his net approaches. I think after a sense set in half to gone to the net twenty times. And with some success, he looks uncomfortable at the net, but he was just playing. The odd. So masters using his six foot six inches his wingspan. Great. Get into the net. And Dominic team was absolutely awful.
Zverev erases 2-set hole, will face Thiem in US Open final
"Just had two more Gargantuan. Grand Slam semifinals one of the best of five sets which was weird and not very wonderful and one straight-sets match, which was absolutely spelled binding and. Just had everything. I've seen a more dramatic thrill ride of a straight-sets match and what is left us with is Alexander Zverev coming back from two sets to love down. To beat public arena buster in five and then dominate team squeezing past Daniel Medvedev and a couple of tiebreaks to at least get something of an earlier night, which is not something that we're really used

Enjoy The Extra Day Off! More Bosses Give 4-Day Workweek A Try
"Suppose your boss offered you this. A full week's pay working only four days a week on one condition that you get a full week of work done in that compressed amount of time a growing number of companies are doing just that and liking the results so much so the four day week has gone from niche workplace concept to a growing global trend. Npr's Yuki Noguchi reports now even American employers are eyeing at shake shack ran an experiment a year and a half ago managers at some stores would only work four days a week. The Burger chains president. Tara Camman says staff loved it being able to take kids to school. You know a day. A week will one day less of having to pay for daycare for example recruitment spiked one word spread the company recently expanded its trial to a third of its hundred sixty four stores that for shake shack to find time savings elsewhere like using computers to track supplies of ground beef for example. It was a way to increase flexibility. Corporate Environment have had flexible work policies for awhile now. That's not so easy to do in the restaurant. Business working four days a week might sound crazy especially this phones and email reminding us of our jobs twenty four seven but in some places the four day concept is taking off like a viral mean. Many employers aren't just moving to ten hour shifts four days a week as shake shack. They're going to a thirty two hour week without cutting pay last month. A Washington State. Senator introduced a bill to shorten the WORKWEEK Russian. Prime Minister Dmitry. Medvedev did the same. Britain and Finland are considering similar moves. Last summer Microsoft's trial in Japan led to a surprising bump in sales and a decrease in electricity bills. Much of this is thanks to Andrew Barnes from New Zealand. He never intended to become a global evangelist. This was not a journey. I expected to be on. Barnes's CEO of Perpetual Guardian and Estate Planning Company. He used to believe long hours. Were good for business. But he also understood the toll. They took on employees and their families especially on mental health so two years ago he used perpetual Guardian. And it's two hundred forty workers as guinea pigs quarter. This is the people on not productive for every hour. Every minute of the day there in the office. So Barnes cut distractions. The biggest target meetings fewer and shorter meetings saved a huge amount of time. So did curtailing office Chitchat. He monitored social media. You've got rid of open floor offices. All this barn says made it easier to focus deeper on the work. Remarkably employees got more work. Done logging fewer hours sales and profits grew employees commuted less and were happier. The company didn't police. How workers spent their time. But if performance slipped the company could revert back to the full week schedule. Barnes says that alone motivated workers. Perpetual Guardian story went viral and things went haywire for Barnes and frankly I couldn't drink enough coffee to deal with the number of companies that approached us. Demand was so Great Barn. Set up a foundation to promote the four day WORKWEEK. Ironically he's been working a lot of overtime you only get one chance to change the world and it's my responsibilities at least on this one to see if I can influence the world for the better to date. Most of that interest has not come from American companies and indeed. The four day week doesn't work everywhere not only niggles heard from other leaders who say it didn't work for them. She says it fails when employees aren't motivated and where managers don't trust employees. Niggle is co founder and CEO of wild bit a Philadelphia Software Company. That moved to afford a week three years ago. She says it's been a success. We had shipped more features than we had in recent years We felt more productive. Quality of our work increased so then we just kept going with it. Personally she says it gives her time to rest her brain which helps solve complex problems. You can ask my teachers multiple times or somebody's like on Sunday morning. I woke up and I was like I figured it out. It's been about a month since Michael parlow started working a four day week.

Putin's Shake-up of the Russian Government
"Russia's entire government resigned. Everybody Putin resigned yesterday. Wow Russian prime minister Dmitry Medvedev announced that the entire government is residing in a surprise statement released shortly after Vladimir Putin delivered his annual State of the Nation Address accepting their resignation. Putin thanked the missed ministers for their hard work and ask them to function as caretakers until he names. The new government wise Medvedev and Putin had met for a work meeting to discuss the state of the nation an address earlier in the day and then during his speech Putin city intended to create the position of deputy secretary area of Russia's Security Council for Dmitry Medvedev so he's GonNa move into his new role and they'll have a new prime minister instead Putin also proposed multiple amendments to Russia's constitution. His proposals would entail substantial changes to the constitution as well as the entire balance of power the power of the executive power of the legislature and the power of the judiciary well in Russia. They could just get things done in Russia. They don't have to go through all this bureaucracy and red tape they just get stuff done. Yeah yeah they do under the Putin plan now. The State Duma the Lower House of parliament will be granted the power to appoint the prime minister and the rest of the cabinet as opposed to just improving their candidates as is currently the case. Another idea voiced by Putin is to make the consultation body the State Council a permanent fixture and it status enroll all will be written into the constitution. And what do you want to bet he decides. Who's going to be sitting on ad Ad Council and then they'll be permanently there so It amazing situation situation in in Russia. And we'll see what what this means but Everybody is still there. I guess for now until they until they come up with their new
Russian PM and entire government quit.

Russia's entire government said it would resign in full just hours after Putin announced plans for a national referendum. That was shift power away from a success to the presidency. The president is laying the groundwork and work because he prepares for a transition. In twenty twenty four the town analysts say will likely see him abandoned the presidency but remain Russia's dominant politician in in a beefed up role such as Russia's prime minister or in the government State Council instead the sixty seven year old has in effect ruled Russia since two thousand thousand him the longest serving leader since Stalin and what he plans to do in two thousand twenty four remains the most important political question in the country in a televised speech before senior officials Putin suggested amending Russia's constitution to limit a future president to just two terms in office. He has served four tightening residency requirements for presidential candidates and letting parliament choose candidates for prime minister and the Cabinet in effect weakening the presidency.

"Is down Medvedev the best tennis platt in the wells male Catherine Whitaker that is the question hold on it you you can't put chef of remotely in the same stratospheric night precisely existed a bit a bit you said a having I don't like the Saudi Arabia match that should be happening I have no problem with him taking whatever sponsorships etc that he's able to get but I just don't want him to change I don't want him to change now I know that's what you don't want him to do what I'm saying is I think I don't know I I think he was he was shaken by the reaction to that and I don't think all in a good way I think there's a bit him that thought Oh you know I could probably give myself a quarter life if I don't do that and and I I'm just not that convinced that we've seen enough to to think that this will necessarily carry own we don't know whether I I'm not convinced it's not just a hot streak at the moment it may well not be may well be more than that but I just I'm not that convinced you I mean I like that in the summer I must say I thought I think our pre US Open podcast not to not to use this word much but I don't think we were really putting him in the mix because he hadn't done it at a slam but he has now done it at a slam taking it out to five sets in the final and these not lost a set or a match since then he's really back that up and how often do we see players unable to back up a big result occasionally done in two tournaments but that's more than most players loss to set the set in winning Saint Petersburg in Shanghai and said afterwards you know everyone's talking about the need for new guys I've given them something new ident- celebrate my wins I get the job done and Bam that's it and it kind of feels like we've been waiting for this new person Medvedev stepped up and now all I can it be another new the vibe anyway I'm very happy with the neo Medvedev sits at the handshake was fantastic by the way wasn't it just it was kind of I'm going to rise above handshake from Dino Medvedev and assertive I'm just GONNA walk off as quickly as possible Stephanie Citizens and what does it was congratulatory but you know he he stephanus sits abassin his rivalry is going to be one of the br cool stories I think of the next year I'm not sure he can come back from cooling someone bullshit Russian especially when you're yeah especially when your whole Russian yourself I mean it's the most amazing foundation for rivalry ever isn't it is nice there's no way that relationship shed private jet from the Cincinnati from Washington Cincinnati or not they are going to have an agro rivalry forevermore and that's fine yeah fantastic and also sit surpass he he qualified for the ATP finals in the round previous to that was that the one where we beat chocolate it was it was actually a Mr Unity I thought by the interview because actually Medvedev's win over Fanini in the course of finals qualified sits so I was hoping the question was going to be thanks to Medvedev y'all now in the finals how are you feeling about that but yeah sycophants sit surpassed beating Vich as was another way that it's got in and as it happened both those two things happen medved one and sits pass one he found out in real time enjoyed wasn't it was lovely moment really is is it secure like such a kid didn't he we like such a kid and that's it and that was the really good the good side sits a pass looking like a kid but one of the things that we were saying in the aggregate what's up last night was the Medvedev's attitude highlights the fact that the rest of the next-gen Medvedev officially next-gen anymore you know what I mean when I say next-gen he makes them like kids you know Medvedev's just getting the job done doing business not faffing ball sits at pass is having a whiny Tantrum is dad and asking him to tie sheet isis for him it's about two and a half years left hasn't he he's got two and a half years to makeup on Dan I'm Evan two and half years ago Medvedev was insulting I'm Sharon pause by throwing money yes and he he may he may be on the same curve he may be women at that of is now in two years he may well be of it that be really exciting if it is but we're talking about them in the same same breath in the same sort of bracket therefore we have to compel them what did you think of that that win for sits Passover jock itch because didn't say that come in the way the way the first set went jackovitch looked millions and I went away for a while and suddenly came back midway through the third set and sits about is really turning turning the tables completely I think you saw that matching in its entirety yeah that was the I thought it was the best match of the week one of the best matches I've seen quality wise or yeah I think wash down a couple of notches and by the end I mean it was just the goat the way sits pass was playing such such variety such sort of potential expansion game the way he can take points away from you come to the net And I think I'm right in saying that Djokovic is now lost his in recent matches against a number of the young players sit surpass Medvedov team if you put him in that bracket action think of old beaten Djokovic at the most recent time they played him so patent is starting to emerge that these young players are managing to be the top top guys outside of the slams just not been able to do slams yet but oversee Medvedev did get close in New York but yet sits a pass it's like someone just inject did life into his season because look finished author Al since right on Gareth rarely I keep crawling to the finish line and suddenly in hopefully with the ATP finals that sort of last bit of motivation that you need to just get over the finish line I think basically we've we've learned this it takes sits at pass about four months to get over a grand slam loss you know certainly a dramatic five-set one which is Komo endearing but something might need to work on according to ATP Media Info on twitter sits passes the one hundred second player to face doc of at least three times he's now only the fourth one of them to have a winning record he joins fanatic Gonzales Yvo college and and Roenick has plans you have a winning record jock itch with three more matches between them title so it's they will joke vich retire with a winning or losing record against sits a pass that's a good question ooh that one of us get out on twitter so many factors that go into answering that yeah this is most likely to win a slam in two thousand twenty volt teams have jock virtual medved are not judged sits Apostle Medvedev and Medvedev had seventy percent of the sixteen hundred votes that's quite a number isn't it AH would you go with that probably just not overwhelmingly but yeah probably would just go medvedev why you to hold him button after a-list Medvedev is the greatest of all time no no no no no no no no no no it depends it depends who can hiring Medvedev against I think is the kate so they should if we're comparing him against the other Nexgen to use that he he is reasonably far ahead what he's achieved at the moment but if we're comparing him to Federal Jackovitch in terms of possibilities to win and slams he's still a reasonable way behind I think despite what he did in New York will one of them win a Grand Slam in twenty twenty of those four will somebody I think one of them will yeah thousand votes seventy percent say yes I was taken aback by that arthritis shokhin ahead of the polls I think is that is that this it's it's quite interesting now that we we actually get to see body language now and because we've got to their own phones in a facetime video conversation Catharine can no longer hide your roles every time I speak Yes yes before you just she used to feel them now you could see them so good job we haven't I do I do I think one of them well Ooh now ident- not think the Big Three winning full twenty twenty twenty one is the year that's what only Murray said he thought it be twenty anyone but that was very sort of Medvedev becoming Medvedev I'm still carrying sits pass to be the first one the way he's improving Oh you had a dip this summer and he needs to needs to Sorta shedule out that what was that much light sits the past Medvedev well I it just one hundred percent confidence Medvedev was going to win yeah he's Fund five zero hitter again ahead of him now isn't it yeah and methods you've kind of well he he lost serving for the match and you thought right this is really set to pass chance to get back in it but then sits up has played the most game I think it was five in the second-set medved everything just closed it out I think he's got so much confidence builder innovative I'm with at Queens and after he came out with the sorts of quotes the you'd think that I I is completely so he just said the guys just so much better the mail never beat him if I ever beat him or have to make some sort of donation to charity unspecified donation into charity with ten thousand something at ended we unclear whether that donation to charity is is actually happened if ten thousand rubles knives currency angry love again that's it it's over I don't care what you say that anyway that was back in one thousand nine hundred three back to the current day and I'm always quite interested in what's what people have got to say I do find Daniel absolutely fascinating as a as a just somebody's just a disruptor that's the word that I don where we've used that word but he he is the ultimate disruptor is knee and I asked whether people had had sort of become a fan of him over other previous brits the results of the last few months earlier in London says no but actively disliked him a mere two months ago I'm now a fan the turning point the US Open match against Lopez he embraced the role of the villain and turn it around Priscilla in Maine says yes I used to be all about sits the best now I don't care much about his results as I do about those Medvedev Nina and Canada says no he's very likable but I can't shake the feeling that he's bat shit crazy under the self control so yeah there's lots of opinions out there I mean most people have definitely been won over by and I haven't found many people who watched his behavior in New York and didn't like it you know most people seem to love it is interesting sometimes people on the fence of or at least divided about that Sir Oh yeah I expect we got bad fed Andy Murray ten Fabio Fini to shut up shut up is what he said which has already tried you didn't manage to dig out that gift last night we were really going for it I could feel it coming I'm trying to ration myself just kind of she just stopped responding so what was it federa- resume his his verbal battle with the empire and the posted started China explain himself a bit knee said don't worry.

I think maybe something was coming off. No doubts game because of tightness it is as the match wore on and some people the the it's it's creeping into the night and getting a little cooler was also signed. Ah to pay cash and and he really pondered this for a while but after cullen is I think he he he he ended up agreeing with the points. which was let's not forget? Never I've only ever played in the Dow once before for two sets and those sets were six three six love so he's not used to it. He's not used do not ball that incredibly hard hit topspin bullied does no way you can replicate that there's nobody else who does it and he also has never faced and a grandson final. He's never even been to the ground some fun so it's not really that surprising that he finds himself two sets to love down. What's interesting is how he he started to get used to it and six three four and five he was he was on an even keel partly because McDowell had regressed regressed a little partly because Medvedeva just gone friends started connecting but I also think ponant because he just got used to it and and he was able to judge judge won't the ball was going to do it looped up and hit the ground hit the deck and jumped and he was stepping in he was taken back ends almost on the half volley and Blackston them cross-court down the line you name it. It's just so much fun. It will yeah funds. The word isn't it. I think what you said about him. Sort what if not <hes> not bothering about logic is I was just thinking about that if I think it's interesting because I was really struggling to find find a pundit that gave them any hope today and I was really wear that I'm I'm a bit biased because I feel like he's spoken to me in the Postie.

He's smarter than all of US East. He's not tired. He's injured. I always go that can easily pull over every part of his body but which was hilarious and he said that for six weeks it was on it was on his right. BICEP the twister it was red stretched down his from his shoulder down to his forearm this this this red plaster can easier time and it starts to curl with the sweat sign. Zayn somebody somebody put a new one for moyer because he looks services silly but he just sat there looking disheveled. I mean he elite disheveled from gain too. If you looks up disheveled in the dictionary than saying like a strange combination between a young boy and an elderly man on his last legs from about the second game this we just don't need to accept that this is how the new member of looks during tennis matches through Branson beanies exhausting. Steve said he's the Rodney Trotter of tennis.

Every time i see your man this please please fifty four hundred on twitter absolutely method of receiving treatment for acute lack of bicep cincinnati his that's going to be hard hard tweet to delete it is the the reason i bring it up because of what we discovered about medvedev when he was down against jackovitch and he just started serving in bombs on second serves and the number of times we've seen and rescue who is in the final of the u._s. Open without playing tennis consistently and yet. She suddenly found a level than she last night she in five games in a row. Where is that come from exactly right. I just again they. They clearly have a a great sense of their game and what it can do against an opponent's game you know that's the i- i- danneal is as you it's hard to watch him play a match even with all of his nuttiness and so he can be so rude and he's findable every time he he plays plays probably but it's hard to watch him just like you and not smile while you're watching them perform because they're doing things they have great imagination. They've got terrific terrific concept. They have the measure of the court and the measure of the moments and i don't know i've i find them. Both i think it's been an interesting us open. All around. Regardless of the protagonists involved chiefs. How did you feel when we would denied. The federal dull fund catherine. I've been saying this for a while now. He's thirty eight.

You wouldn't be surprised if he wanted. I still would be surprised method then won the u._s. Open it feels like such a big deal to take. I think definitely not next gen but team. I would still possibly have as potentially doing better than medvedev things done nothing. Though i mean i really i totally understand when i when i was in montreal nice saw the way he spoke about winning in kitsch bull. I mean i still think he's probably still lying in bed at night. Cuddling that trophy. I mean it means means everything to winning catchable. I understand why he's played there and played on clay at two fifty of the wimbledon but i really think that hurts tim. I really do and i don't know how he's gonna. He's obviously never gonna not play kitsch bill for the greater good of tennis. I wish he wouldn't but but i do understand but he's done nothing. I just feel like the best of five sets medvedev could just get bullied out of matches and worn down by char rachel. Someone the people peak these things medvedev's kind of having the year..

One playing in his obsolete pump medvedev cools the trainer then received some treatment for what hannah wilkes onto it described as acute lack of by set my favorite thing ever it was amazingly. The train actually touched his arm and he went how exactly what i would say they made eight me. Ponder on how rare bicep injuries in tennis never see people get treatment anyway so there. He is getting a light light proud to his boss no enjoying it. It's all a other than suddenly everything changes so i i mean yeah. I can't remember what my original point was. I'm just thinking about whether i can think of any other bicep injuries whenever the vice boys up injury. I have not done myself if that's because it's robust part of the body or whether it's because it's not particularly significant parts of the body for tennis from the acute line saying yeah. He said that he said after the match that he was finding again is big talking point over the u._s._a. Series the heaviness of the balls was what was provoking the problems with his arms. Raffle wasn't happy with the heaviness of the bulls in awesome got an elbow issue. Exactly everyone is really unhappy with the bulls that he used at the <hes> during the series in there of course different balls to wilson ones that he used the plane where it is weird. Isn't it and it's a it's a deal that's been done but you can understand the players not being happy and i think it's changing next year. Is it okay great so i think they're going to be. There's going to be consistency of balls during the u._s. Open series in the u._s. Open but it does seem like i mean obviously we're. We're kind of outside is in terms of tennis tennis tennis ball but then not just see madness so they don't use the same ones kind of around the year swing like that yeah and if you know pundits and players seem i'm pretty much in consensus the it's fairly significant factor and it is a big caveat when when you're trying to analyze form and favorites and people that may or may not be in the mix going into the u._s. open when we're trying to discuss that in the the g._d._p. Every every time greg would say yeah but remember the bulls bulls are different than us a big thing particularly if it if zip if the conditions the heat and humidity become a factor say it's annoying. There was a mad moment in the women's final where they played a game with the men's bowls roles because the man is the men and the women have different balls and they knew booze and they played a game with the wrong ones and qs but i think he's noticed and it went down on the other end and these are the ones and an sat where i missed that is that's bizzare and there was a delay hey to the men's final because the net they couldn't find it was broken net superb feeling oh really well in the curto. The raring to go plays a close going back into the locker room. Yeah tennis run appalled ovals replaced and the pulse is who. Do you expect. We'll have the better u._s.
