35 Burst results for "Medvedev"
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Still win the match after that. Probably one of his biggest achievements. Yeah, his monthly, as you said, was impressive, and in the end, I think it loosened him up a bit, because as you said he did have the chat with Patrick macro on the sidelines and at that stage in the match Medvedev was kind of on top, wasn't he, just one, just won the second set. I think curios did need a bit of spark again, and he managed to find it from truly one of the dumbest plays I've ever seen. Yeah, Annie, he owned that moment in the on court interview. He did speak to Patrick McEnroe actually about it. He then came into the press conference afterwards. And it was a very introspective press conference. Wasn't it? I wasn't necessarily expecting that. You do get all sorts of press currencies from curios. I asked him the question, given everything 5 sets, playing the defending champion here at a Grand Slam, is that the best performance of your career. He didn't answer that directly. He actually went into quite an introspective conversation about how low he's been and how far he's kind of come individually because he's, he said, I've been depressed for a long time because of not fulfilling potential for people thinking that I've blown it. And yeah, he talked about pride, really, didn't he, and his performance today. That was the main thing he was, he was referring to, I think, was the fact that he'd finally kind of in a Grand Slam. Not let himself down. And I do think I said this before, but I do think losing the one wouldn't find it in the end for the sort of long-term Nick curios tennis career was the best thing because it has left him motivated. He gave a line at the end of the press conference saying, well, three more matches and I never have to play tennis again. But honestly, I was really high on curios. Over the summer, just thought he was playing so well. But then some comments he gave in Cincinnati suggested that he was kind of at the end of his tank a bit. He's been away for a long time. I just didn't feel as good about him coming into the U.S. open as I thought I would. Just because of those comments, I thought he was just going to be a bit low on energy and he wants to get home, but actually I think those tournaments in the summer were right in the middle of the slog now, like the end is inside, and it's pretty clear for him now. He either he either keeps winning and wins this title, which given the way he played today is a distinct possibility, or he goes home and I just think that's kind of freedom up a bit. You say winning the title of distinct possibility, I called it, I think, mix worthy tennis, and I am well aware that I'm the person who said that he isn't in my mix. Christoph's curios also well aware of that. Yeah. Got trolled there, hi, christos. Nice to hear you listening. Reading tweets anyway. I will happily revise my judgment by pre tournament judgment because he's very much in the mix to win this tournament. I would not be surprised now if Nick curious won it, that doesn't mean I think he will win it, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did. Because he's just come through a challenge I did not expect him to come through. It's all there is to it. Who's he got next? Karen hatchin of. He's favorite for that who beat Pablo cuellar buster in 5 sets today, which I must say I didn't see much of, there was a lot of other things going on. Yes. But that's a big win for him. Yeah, it's very big win for him. I remember hatching off and curios having an epic match on the John Cain arena, is it called these days? It is these days. I don't know what iteration it was at the time. The Australian open, they went 5 sets. It was absolutely epic that match. So I forgotten about that. Yeah, it's not a foregone conclusion, is it this match for curios? I think that that's another challenge because now it's one that he's supposed to win on paper. Now he's had a few of those over the course of the summer and he's actually he's done a good job really at winning those matches that he's supposed to win of late. But this isn't a Grand Slam quarterfinal. He's supposed to win and hatching off playing well. I agree. I back curious. But it's another tough match and he's probably going to have three more very tough matches if he is to win this tournament. So still lots to prove. One consequence of tonight is that daniil Medvedev loses his number one ranking. All right. Who's in the mix for that? Well, it is Rafael Nadal, Carlos alcaraz, or Casper Ruud, will be number one at the end of the U.S. open. Favorite. Casper Ruud needs to win the tournament, not against Nadal in the final. Alcaraz needs to win the tournament and then kind of any other scenario. It's Nadal. Right. Okay. Well, we'll see. I mean, Nadal feels the fitting. Yes, world number one. To be honest, the way the year has gone. I think alcaraz would be the youngest ever, if he does get there. Goodness. Okay, well, we'll see what happens with all of that. The other match that was going on tonight, I mean, there's one going on at the moment on your bear who's just won the first set against Veronica could have met over and she's never beaten her before. So very close for said it was too. We'll catch up on that tomorrow in tomorrow's show. But the one of the result we had tonight was the continuation of the isle of Thomas story because after beating Serena Williams, it would be very understandable if she came out flat, exhausted, all those things. And in a completely different atmosphere. You know, it was a bit flat on that court. Lewis Armstrong stadium was the final match of the day on there. Because to completely different experience to the one she had the other night. Yeah. And she faced ludmilla Samsung, who we've been talking about. How dangerous she is with the incredible run she's been on, wasn't it 13 match wins in a row? 13 wins in a row 18 sets in a row coming into tonight. And she had 6 points in the first set. 8. Was it 8? It was 8 in the end. Goodness, mate. Yeah, and there was a almost 20 minute game at 5 four in that set, which you just could not take your eyes off and Tommy out of it ended up saving 7 set points in that game. And just I thought it told you everything about both players, that little sequence, the way Tommy and did save those set points this newfound grit and mental strength and ability to play well in the pressure moments was all at play. And then having not taken those set points, Samsung came out to serving just casually held from love 30 down and in about two minutes and was put the pressure back on Tommy and I was like, that is a stone cold killer

Is the Success of 'Top Gun' Cause for Optimism? Paul Kengor Weighs In
"Talking about Hollywood, I don't know if you've seen it, but I like to ask everybody in the last month or so about it. Given the fact that Top Gun has now, as of this weekend, become the 7th highest grossing movie in history, it just outstripped Titanic and it made a $1 billion in the first 6 weeks. Do you think that's a sign of something because there's nothing politically correct. It's just a celebration of America. Do you feel optimistic that perhaps the left grip on popular culture is waning to a certain degree? No, I'm not optimistic. I still think we're going to hell in a handbasket. And so, you know, to be totally Frank with you. But that is a positive sign. And that's something that ought to speak to people and how to speak to Hollywood. But you know, Seth, I mean, it's been like that for decades. Michael Medvedev was, I think, right? Who in the 80s or 90s did a book, title was in Hollywood versus America, something like that about how movies that are patriotic that are conservative always outperform. These woke movies and these left wing movies. And you would think Hollywood would learn more of a lesson from it, but they don't. In fact, I can tell you that the movie that Reagan the movie, which is based on my book on Ronald Reagan, the crusader, which is coming out in 2023, stars stars Dennis Quaid as Ronald Reagan. I mean, here in his 2023, the movie rights for that book were purchased back in around 2006. So it took that long to get a movie made.
"medvedev" Discussed on The Passing Shot Tennis Podcast
"It is genuinely a real, fairytale story, and the fact that he wasn't, I think, overcome with any sort of nerves and just played his tennis, particularly in front of his home crowd as well, a little extra pressure to deal with was, you know, really, really impressive and Medvedev, although he would have been happy to get to the final. Again, he just did not have an answer to what was on the other side of the net. And you know, I'm not saying this is a theme with Daniel Medvedev's losses at the moment, but you know he had that loss against Marin Cilic who again played some really inspired tennis and didn't really know what to do. And I was looking at the highlights to this final in the game. Tim van Wright hoven, I thought played very, very inspired tennis. And again, Medvedev didn't really have an answer. Yeah, and you know, we talk about the inexperience of Tim ran Tim van Wright haven. You know, that previous time in an ATP tour level event was back in 2016. So, you know, not even recently, he hasn't even won a challenger event. He's an incredibly inexperienced really. And it's just all the more remarkable, really. But because of this when he moves actually up almost a hundred places in the rankings, he's going to be a 106 in the world. He's never played a Grand Slam before now, but I'm hoping that he will be able to Wimbledon surely. Let's hope so. Raindrop wild card or qualities wild card. I would give him main draw to be honest. I mean, maybe they've already earmarked their wild cards, but I mean, actually, though, he may get in automatically because if you take out Russian players and Belarusian players, thinking he's one O 6 in the draw in the rankings, I don't know. He may get in anyway, but we'll have to wait and see. I would hope that tournaments are going to be giving him some more opportunities sometimes soon. But yeah, he's the lowest ranked winner of an ATP title this year. I think last year we had one of the serendip winning and they were sort of I think at the time it was Juan Manuel Cerrone winning and he was 300 odd in the world. So, you know, it has been known, but it doesn't happen very frequently. It's kind of once in a blue moon. And it is a fairytale story. It's very Peter Cole esque. And I can I just say, I saw him insertion last week, Joel. Qualifying. And he lost to that finish guy that ended up getting to the semis, I think. So there was nothing that I could see in serpent. Would have told me a week later he'd be beating Daniel recorder and winning his first time. Well, a lot of people, I mean, Andy Murray lost in services and did really, really well this week on the tour. And Tim had a right David also very similar story. But yeah, he just played very, very well from what I've seen of his game. He has big serve, big forehand and it was really, really working well for him throughout the whole week, and I think he just grew in confidence, I think, throughout given the sorts of players he was coming up against because although I think Medvedev Medvedev didn't face a seeded player through to the final, the fact that van Wright hoven had to face Taylor Fritz the third seed and then oja Ali seemed the second seed in the semifinal. I mean, that match against Ohio scene, which he won on a third set tiebreak was really impressive, given he lost that second set 6 one, and I thought, I thought that was the end of the, I thought that was the end of the comeback story. I thought, you know, Asia aliasing will be able to kind of get this done now, but you know, he just bounced back and he had lots of breakpoint opportunities in that third set and although he didn't wasn't able to take them. He didn't let that get him down and when it came to that match tiebreak at the end of the end of that third set. He was ready to seize his moment. So yeah, really, really impressive. Does it warrant a Wimbledon main draw wild card if he doesn't get in on automatic entry? I would definitely think so. I mean, title winner, you beaten the world number one from tomorrow. I think that absolutely warrants being in the main draw. Everyone is going to be talking about him for the next few weeks. So certainly I would be, yeah, making making the most of that. And yeah, great week. Great week for great week for him. Yeah, I think for me the most impressive thing was just the final itself, you know, just didn't show any sort of nerves and the second say went 5 love up and served it out to love. I mean, it's just, you know, I was supposed to add nothing to lose. You just thought I'm going to go for it, but maybe he watched. Maybe he watched Peter Cole as part of his training. In the build up. But Kim, but Kim, there was a silver lining for Daniel Medvedev because he did beat two French players on the route to the final. He beat Gilles seaborn and he beat mannarino as well in the semis because I didn't realize this, but there is this thing called the Daniel Medvedev, the French curse, because his record against French man is terrible. He's lost more matches against French players than one. Everyone says whenever he comes up against French player that Daniel Webb David nerds are going to lose. But yeah, he came through against Simon and mannarino. So his record now against French players is one 18 lost 22, so it's still in the negative, but for some reason, when Medvedev comes up against a player of the French nationality, it's just a bit of a hoodoo on him. It's this strange that because, you know, he speaks, I think, French fluently. He's lived in France for many years. I think he still lives there now. So I don't know, maybe he's just in complete awe of them or something. I mean, yes, we've got like gel bod feasts still knocking about. The Gaston. Yeah, there's not that many. There's not too many French up at the top, are there anymore? That sort of generations kind of golden a little bit. But I mean, Medvedev probably won't be too gutted at this result because it's although he would obviously have wanted to won this title. You know, he's still going to be world number one from tomorrow. And you know, he's not allowed to play Wimbledon. So it's not like he needs to be fine tuning his grass court game in advance of the Grand Slam, which seems quite, I don't know, strange and ironic and if we go on to the women's final at the labe open, we had two players there who will not be at Wimbledon. We had, you know, Katarina Alexandria, Russia and arena sublink of Belarus. And Alexandra came out on top in this one, 7, 5, 6 love. Anything fantastic week for her, you know, picking up, I think her second career title. But I don't know, for me, it's kind of like, oh, but I would have liked to have seen what she could have done at Wimbledon, but we won't know now, I will..
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"But he would be to play her catch her couch would have to be set to pass. That would be the quarterfinal her catch. It's a pass. Her catch hasn't lost Soviet at this point. And he's looking pretty good, isn't he? I mean, I know he played golf and Gotham wasn't a 100% fit today, but she hasn't done this here. I think it is that he does look pretty good until he plays someone better. I think that is sort of her catches thing. If anybody else would like to propose another thing. You did beat Medvedev at Wimbledon this year last year, didn't he? But and he's had his Miami run, but I know what you mean. I don't necessarily trust her catch to sustain that level against the best players. Her catch will likely play caspar rude next to his currently a set and a break up on Lorenzo, sonic ago, stiff Stefano sits a pass will play the winner of tonight's match between holger and Hugo Gaston, which is going up against the football. Down at the bottom of the drawer, daniil Medvedev faces Marin Cilic now who ended Gil Simon's French Open career today and was the only participant in his episode of this is your life. In comparison to tsonga, that was like a sort of a single rather than a double album, wasn't it? It was over in a blink. And possibly a relief for some viewers. I think they really wanted him to lose in the first round on Simon Mathieu, so there wasn't the sort of direct visual. You know, it was the exact same quote, the weather was the same. It was all in the same place. It was just shitter. It was the same trophy, little trophy thing, which is really classy. It's a little cross section of the court that they give them with the clay and top dressing on top and then goodness knows what geology is beneath that. My dad's going to text me now and he listens to this and tells me exactly tell me exactly what geology is beneath it. That's a really nice touch, Emily meres movie was there. It was all lovely and had there not been the direct comparison three days ago of everyone Joe for Tonga's ever met coming out with custom made t-shirts with his face on. It would have felt lovely today. But nobody had any t-shirts, which you'll see mom's face on. I think songa said a dangerous precedent now because he's a very, very fine player, but you've got one slam so now we get one of these, the big three big four. When they're going to retire, they have to go bigger than Jo Wilfried tsonga, doesn't have to book an entire section of court time for the interviews and the send off. I mean, there's an argument to say that roger fenter invented an entire tournament to enable that he could have the perfect send off. Well, the labor cup. Yeah. That's going to go on for ten years. So he could do it. I think that's going to be playing when he's 50. The Simon max was obviously, it was no contest, but the fact that it followed corneille meant that there was a period in the day there where French players on chatre lost 21 games in a row..
Russia Warns US: We Have the Might to Put You in Your Place
"Former president, the puppet president of a Russia Medvedev, made a statement last week. Directed to America. Let's listen to what he said. Finally, a bizarre warning from the former president of Russia now a security official Dmitry Medvedev, he basically said that Russia had the right to put the U.S. in its place for get this, stirring up quote, disgusting. Interesting cake back to you. Yeah, disgusting Russell phobia advice a bombing hospitals. What does it say to you as somebody who has experienced directing strategy in The White House when a former Russian president who's clearly a mouthpiece for Putin says America has to be put in its place, rob? Well, I mean, is that a statement of strength? Well, can you put America in this place? That's the question you have to ask. I think any ten pot dictator would want to put American in this place. The question that you're saying, you're asking is, can we? And I would say we can today, or we at least prior to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, they were able to at least Vis-à-vis Russia. So what I just talked about, this elite capture, this ability to get elites to think in your favor. That's globalization, right? What? No, but it's the manipulation of globalization. So it's the use of weapons. It's a weaponization of globalization against the democratic principles. To take the war a bit further and this gets into your question about 5G so now you know how they go after the leads. It's really about putting their wealth at risk. How do you go after the population because as we talked about last time, John warden said, don't go after the population because it ends tends to backfire against you.
Russian Politician Demands Reparations From US in the Form of Alaska, California
"Turning back to demands like California and Alaska. So this is gaining some momentum there. In Russia, first of all, you've got Dmitri Medvedev Medvedev forgive me saying that we might have to put the U.S. in its place a very cryptic cryptic thing to say, well, simultaneously, you've got state news commentators. They're in Russia saying that they need reparations because of all these sanctions. These sanctions that the U.S. is putting on the country of Russia because of the devastation and destruction it's committed in Ukraine. By the way, I love sanctions. I'm a big believer in sanctions the best way, however, for all those sanctions to work is for everybody to be on board. So we need everybody joining us. We need to be holding hands as a world united against this evil monster that's killing so many people. So really important, we all be on the same page, which is why it's critical that China come to the table and work with us here. They have got a huge opportunity in front of them. Let's hope they take this anyway back to this idea that they would take California or Alaska. That's the commentator saying, we want reparations, you know, because this is going to be economic hardship for us, so you should suffer. We need California and Alaska talking about territorial expansion, right? They're saying we're not going to contain this just to Europe. I'm laughing. It's actually not funny, although I will say that all of you have been pointing out, well, hey, they can take California. We'll give it to them.
Vladimir Putin Is Running Out of Options
"Let's talk about this threat. This threat that's coming from a Medvedev, Dmitry Medvedev, who served as president, well, hand selected president we should say, hand selected by Vladimir Putin from 2008 to 2012, he says, and I quote, we might have to put you in your place, referring to the United States of America. You see, they're running out of options here. It's gotten so bad that Vladimir Putin is out now, trying to copycat Trump with his rallies. He just took to the streets and did this massive rally in the cameras were showing the thousands of people supporting him and he's talking about rah rah rah. And we have to save the people of Ukraine, save the people of Ukraine, when you think about all the lives they are destroying, and this madman wants to get out there and say we're saving the people of Ukraine. He is absolutely delusional. His intelligence surrounding this entire operation was disastrous to the point now where The Pentagon estimates 7000 soldiers Russian soldiers are now dead thanks to Ukrainian forces, 7000 soldiers, and then you have roughly four generals it's estimated that also have died. That's actually been confirmed for Russian generals have died. So this is not going well. This is not what he thought. He thought he could waltz in there and everybody would say ra ra, we're so glad that you're here. You're going to save us. The Ukrainian people. We want to be part of Russia. That's not at all what has happened.
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"In terms of the tennis, where should we start? Should we start with daniil Medvedev becoming the new men's world number one? Because that kind of that covers off both goings on in Acapulco, where Rafael Nadal has continued his I'm going to say this a couple of times, unbeaten starts to the 2022 season. And I can't believe it. Unbeaten start to the 2022 season. We haven't even gotten clay yet. No, or no, I know. It can only go downhill on clay. How is that? How is that the case? Is it 23 and O? 15. Where have I got 23 from? As I was saying it, I thought it sounded a lot 15 and all on hard. You've got to miss the favorite friend Indian Wells Catherine. Is that what's already thinking ahead two weeks? Well, he's unbeatable, David. He's categorically statistically unbeatable. So that's what happened in Acapulco. And in Dubai, Andrei Rublev won the title. Extraordinarily so. As I said in the final. So neither Medvedev nor Djokovic featuring in either of those finals, but it was beating Djokovic 6 four 7 6 in Dubai, his second victory over Novak Djokovic, he's two over Djokovic now, both times. Djokovic has been the world number one at the time of their meeting. It was that defeat from Djokovic that ensured that daniil Medvedev would become the new men's world number one today. And yes, it might have felt inevitable for a little while now even Djokovic didn't he last week sort of nodded to that and said, look, it's going to happen eventually. And when it does, he'll be worthy of it. And yet still it's seismic, isn't it? It is a drum roll please changing of the God. Have I gone too early on changing of the guard? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I think you have. But yet, look, it's a massive moment, isn't it? What's the stat matter in terms of Medvedev breaking in and being the one that there was a guard, David, the guard was the big four, and it has changed. But I just feel like they're going to call me. No one the phrase isn't permanent changing of the guard. Okay. Yes, I remember dev is the first man outside of the big four to be world number one since Andy Roddick. On the 1st of February 2004, when you were how old Matt, I was 7. So if that's not a changing of the guard, I don't know what is. I'll give you that one. Okay, well, is he going to hang on to it then? Is it going to be a permanent changing in the guard? We'll know that Djokovic get back to world number one. I would expect so. Personally, I don't think he can't play the next two events. He's far from done. I'm not saying he's done. I'm saying the amount that he can participate imminently is in question at best. And going anywhere, okay. Hang on, do you think the doll's going back to world and the war? This is ludicrous, all of this is ludicrous. What do you think, Matt? What do you think, Catherine? Come on. I think they will get it back from him. Yes, I think. They both, they probably. Yeah, I could see the doll getting number one this season. And I could see Djokovic in next year, a couple of years. Getting it back again. In terms of his aims for what he thinks he can still do in the sport, I think very much aligns with that. Are you saying that Daniel Medvedev is, is he going to be yevgeny kafelnikov? Is that what you're saying? With his world number one, David? Well, he got to world number one. I think in about 1999 and he then proceeded to lose in the first round of his next 6 tournaments. So, you know, it's one of those things. And around that time, there were a lot of changes of the world number one spot. I think pat rafter might have had it for about two weeks or two weeks, 6 days. I had it for 6 days, which Medvedev is guaranteed to pass. I think Medvedev guaranteed to have it for three weeks. It's like that there's the thing in for U.S. presidents where they surpass there was a president back in the day called William H Harrison that was only president for 40 days or something. Think he got ill or, you know, got consumption or something that people in the olden days got. And it's a thing when you when you surpass William H Harrison, so you're not the shortest lived president of the United States. Yes, folks, I learned that from veep. That's how I brow. Okay, so staying with staying with the sort of events that led to Daniel Medvedev becoming world number one. Novak Djokovic losing to Ye xiv, are you saying then that Djokovic Djokovic just has a Vasily problem and this is nothing to do with the form of Novak Djokovic. I mean, I know we just don't have enough data to go on on the form and we're not going to get any for a while because he won't be able to play Indian Wells or Miami but what's going on there? Why did he lose to you vesle? I think he does have a bit of a vaseline problem. He played so well first and foremost would be what I would say about that match. I think a lot of the credit goes to vaseline. He was in a position to win an even more comfortably and he got broken back when he was serving for the match for a 6 four 6 four win. And then I thought, okay, Djokovic has got him now. He's had that moment. He's fought back. He's got this incredible crowd on his side and yet vaseline did not go away. In fact, he upped his game from there and played the most wonderful tiebreak. He reminds me game style wise. I mean, I know he's been around a while. Actually, we've seen him play, but we haven't actually seen him play that much recently because he had COVID last year, which set him back. He was involved in a car accident as well, which took him a while to recover from. So he hasn't actually been on the scene much recently. He's dropped outside of the top 100. But game style wise, he does remind me a bit of manna Reno. In that he's got an incredibly flat backhand that he can just lean on and it can be quite deceptive with how hard he's hitting the ball, and yet he's a much bigger man than manner, you know, he's got additional power..

"medvedev" Discussed on The Passing Shot Tennis Podcast
"Up a lady's final showdown with Danielle Colleen. Kim today is the 28th of January and we are here to catch up on the semifinals of the Australian open at passing shot headquarters. We now know our finalists. We've had two ladies semifinals yesterday two men's finals today. I feel like we're gonna have to deal with a lot of anger throwed our way on court by Daniel Medvedev, but I think largely it's been interesting a couple of days. I think a lot of fans perhaps would have liked the ladies semis to be a bit closer in terms of score line. But I think just looking on today and the men's action, I certainly think they lived up to their billing, didn't they? I think mostly, I think the men's semifinals did. I think Medvedev's pass ran away from us a bit at the end. I was expecting a slightly stronger fourth set. And bertini at times not quite at the races. It became, I think at times a parent that he has yet to actually beat Rafa, Djokovic Federer, maybe has a bit of a big three complex still in the way he turned up and performed. But generally speaking, obviously more competitive matches than R two ladies, semifinals. More angry matches as well. Yes, I mean, all the talk today has been about cats, hasn't it? In particular, well, let's start with Medvedev's pass, which was the nightmare. Medvedev had a little, I guess, meltdown, halfway through, classic Medvedev. And I did actually think that that would be, and I thought, oh, we self combusting again like he did in last year's final, but he managed to pull it together, not let it bother him and actually it was its basic ran out of steam as the match went on. It was that was a big flash point, I think, during the match, Medvedev getting really frustrated with surpassing and disappears coaching team antics. He felt that his box were kind of communicating with his capacity did eventually get a warning for coaching, I think, in the fourth set, but in the heat of the moment, Medvedev was not a happy customer. He was shouting at the umpire. The umpire not really doing a lot. I know there's been a bit of criticism I think of how the umpire handled it. I do sort of agree. I don't think he was necessarily assertive enough in the match. And in that situation, I think rightly so, you should have given Medvedev a warning given the things that he was saying to him, but he called time the match went on, never dev. I think when and drop served at the start of the think at the start of the third set, throwing in a double fault that was really, really wild. And I think it actually landed near the baseline to the audience's shock, but yeah, he did manage to kind of pull it together and then that force set really much. That really was a formality. It was actually quite interesting, I think, because as soon as he did get that warning for coaching in the fourth set to pass it, I don't think you won a game since. So read into that what you will. But yeah, for me, does point of view. For the final, he will want to think specifically about that first set because he was playing some of the best tennis. I've seen from him over the last 12 months or so, you know, we know how I think how much he loves playing on a fast hardcore and with his serve, his resilience as well at the back of the court, it really was a very, very tough nut to crack for his capacity. Although he went ahead in that tie break again Medvedev's mental strength, wrestled back control of the situation. He was kind of able to nab it 7 5. So I think for Medvedev, it was a good performance, but there were certainly, I think, certainly, I think things that he could improve on. But I think more or less he will be happy given he had spent what over four and a half hours against Felix OJ only a few days ago. Yeah, exactly. I think there were going to be question marks about how physically he was able to deal with it after such a long match and saving that much point. All the drama of the quarter final. But generally, I was impressed with what I saw from him today. I think he's certainly carving out this, I guess area of being the next one from the big three now. He's in his fourth Grand Slam final and going for his second straight slab, which I think there's a statistic, isn't there like a lot of people who win their maiden slam like very rarely go and win two in a row. I think Naomi Osaka did do that a couple of years ago with a U.S. Australian hold court double. But yeah, we'll get on to kind of predicting the final in a moment. But I think certainly I thought this was going to be a closer match than obviously there last year in the semifinals. And I thought it's possible to have a bit more than he did. But yeah, as for 6 passes, dad, that needs to be looked into because there's just like a constant coaching, isn't there? It was really strange because he had his face mask on. So I don't know if that was deliberate in the sense that he could kind of hide his mouth and movement of his mouth behind his face Mark. That was the sort of impression I was getting watching it on TV. But certainly, yeah, it was something that we've spoken about in previous past matches and although we were talking about what the U.S. opens is surpassing and toilet breaks. It feels like now the conversation is just gone on to sisa pass and coaching and it's just sort of one antic to another and I think a lot of players are looking at it like he's trying to use every trick in the book to gain an advantage and I think Andy Murray wasn't impressed by it and I don't think Daniel Medvedev certainly wasn't impressed by it. There is a part of me that thinks Medvedev could have handled it better..
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"I mean, he was, you know, he's just. I mean, it wasn't even a particularly great Daniel Medvedev press conference tonight. Was it, but it was just sort of it was just great. As they all are. Yeah, again, I said to Simon, as we were shuffling out of the room, world number one him impress conferences, Daniel Medvedev, and he agreed, I think Simon, Simon mentioned how good Federer has always been in press conferences. But yeah, there must not miss his press conferences because he's going to open. He's going to be honest. He's going to reflect. He's going to have interesting things to say. He's going to be really polite when he says it as well. He's very, very good in the press room in the same ways very, very good on court as well. He really is sort of covering everything. Just on that point you made David about it being similar or reminding you of federal Djokovic. I sort of had the same thoughts and look who wins the federal Djokovic matches on a hard course in the slams. Always Djokovic and it can always feel like Federer is the better player because as you said or sits a pass in this case because he's hitting these incredible highs and doing these incredible things. But in the crunch moments, I think Medvedev's game style suits it more. He can go into a sort of lockdown mode whereas Medvedev does enough to take the risks. Doesn't have to take the risk, which sits about has to take and which Federer has to take and yeah, it's just a game style which I think lends itself more to high pressure moments. And then when you combine that with the incredible mental strength that Djokovic and Medvedev both have, it's so tough to beat even for players with the skills of Federer and sit surpass. Great watch, though, those first three sets are. One last bit of very minor I grow to touch upon. Is that Stefano soup to pass was eventually given a coaching warning in the third set, and this came about it transpires. As a result of Ava as Dirac Moore, the Greek umpire being assigned to stand underneath the stefanos sits a pass play as box. And listen out for coaching instruction being yelled by apostolos sits a pass, which is common, sits a passes been given warnings about it in at least two of his matches this fortnight, I think, think a lot more than that. I mean, it's a pass said himself. You know, it happens all the time. We barely even notices now. But you had everybody more loitering in the tunnel like a covert agent. Doing hand signals to the chair umpire to indicate he's done it, give him a warning. And the warning came and yeah, it was a very quirky little moment. And if you want to hear the very interesting things that Stefano sits at pass had to say about the fact that he is repeatedly getting these coaching warnings, then subscribe to the newsletter because my asked him about it impress after his in fact MacBook congratulated by the other journalists in the room for asking the question that they all wanted to hear the answer to, but to be fair to sit to pass best press conference of the fortnight today after his win he was yeah, he wasn't chippy. He wasn't as weird. He wasn't as he was more natural. I think he was just a bit more sort of off the cuff. And saying things as you saw them, I think, and you know, I didn't agree with a lot of the ways that he saw things. There are a few sort of logic failures in there. He sort of said he argued with the why he was getting coaching warnings because he said, look, it doesn't matter what my dad shouting. I don't hear it. He said, I'm so in my own world. I'm never going to hear anything my dad saying. You know, failing to understand that that is a matter if your coach is doing it. That's what you get to get the warning for. And then he sort of went on to the subject of whether coaching should be warning worthy anyway. But I am encroaching onto newsletter territory, so I encourage you to subscribe to newsletter. And check out that excellent content in there.

"I don't think we should be too disappointed. I think what we've seen from Emma is positive in the way she handled it today. Yeah, definitely. I think given what we saw out in her first match where she nearly got double bagel to seeing how she's done with that win against Sloane Stephens, the fight and determination I think she showed against COVID nich. I think we're in a lot better position. I think we can see with her new team, her new setup. There's opportunities there to make to make improvements to kind of refine and strengthen her game and onto the next tournament. It doesn't matter if it's going to be a Grand Slam or on the WTA Tour. At the moment, it feels like the grand slams are her home and she's going to have to be able to live with the smaller tournaments and the smaller oppositions on the smaller courts. And yeah, again, it will be another back to the back to the grind situation and yeah, getting used to, I think, being a mainstay on the WTA Tour. Definitely. And I mean, let's look at what else we had. This morning, whilst we were all up and about, we obviously had on rod laver arena, big match against Daniel Medvedev and Nick curios, home favorite. And I think this kind of went the way I was expecting curios had never actually lost him ever previously, but their prior matches have been at least three years ago. And then earlier and Medvedev came through this one in four sets, 7 6 6 four four 6 6 two, so curious was able to grab that third set. But you know, I think the most exciting bit of this match for me was probably yeah, maybe that first set tiebreak, thinking, wow, what kind of way is this match going to open up and start out? And then I guess, you know, Kirby was scrubbing that crowd going wild. That was kind of quickly knitting the barred by Devin in the fourth set. But I think Medvedev overcame overcame the crowd overcame kiros antics, but curios essentially two inconsistent doesn't have the doesn't have the weapons. Yeah, it doesn't have a consistency to match someone of Medvedev's caliber. You know, he is potentially going to finish as world number one at the end of this tournament should he win it. So a golf in different I think, and that this match showed that, I think. It was really, really good performance. I think that as you said, that first set, that first set tiebreak was critical because it would have been, I think, very interesting, had Medvedev lost that tie break and gone a set down to curios because I think the crowd would have got in, I think, even earlier, but I think by the time curious did win a set in that third set, I think he was all out of energy really. I think he had to have huffed and puffed and yes he was able to get that break and win and reduce the deficit to two sets to one. But Medvedev just had a second win ready the kiosk that he was not able to deal with and he just kind of steamrolled through that four set 6 two. What I thought was kind of interesting was the end of the match. We had Jim Courier on court talking to Medvedev about his performance and Medvedev kind of talked about the crowd booing him between his first and second serve. And again, that interaction engaged with that he has with the crowd. I think he does it in a way that is not like he's not kind of flustered by it. He doesn't let it get on top of him, but he is certainly, I think aware of it. And we all know the atmosphere and Nick curios matches is sort of party and carnival football like atmosphere. But yeah, again, it was impressive that Medvedev was able to just sort of block that out and get on with it. Yeah, he did handle it well today. Despite them making noises. But I think at the end as well in the interview it sounded like the crowd were booing, which I would think I was thinking if they are booing that's incredibly rude. But I think what they were doing is that Ronaldo suing thing, which is just really strange and Jimmy it's like the new zealot chant, isn't it of the 2020 Australian open? Yeah, I mean, Jim Carrey was trying to explain to him that it wasn't booing that they were doing this thing. I don't know. I think they genuinely think they're actually building. I genuinely think I genuinely think they were. But Medvedev had to tell them in that interview to shush it because he couldn't even hear courier tried to explain what the Sioux chant was. So regardless, they were being disrespectful in that extent anyway. And I just think, I don't really get this suit thing. Why would you do a chance that sounds like boo. I don't really understand it. This is going to end up on a future like pet peeves fan pet peeves podcast episode, isn't it? Yeah, it was a bit, it was a bit there. And it did maybe think about the Australian open, just generally, and the fact that they call it or they do call it that the happy slam. I don't know, I just think this year and also a little bit of last year as well. I look at what's going on and the crowd interaction as well, yes, I know this is a Nick curios match and doesn't necessarily happen at every single match. But it just, I don't know, just doesn't it doesn't feel very happier at the moment, I don't think. And it feels like there's a lot of tension and aggro and it could be jokey. It could be a little bit more intimidating. But it could come from and I think come from the crowd at some points. But yeah, it feels like I don't know, it feels like the DNA of the tournament. I think has changed. Arguably more so than the other three slams over the last few years, potentially because of the pandemic and the vaccine situation. But yeah, it was just something I think I observed, given the interactions and all the noise that I think has been making during that match..
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Actually, in some ways. Yeah, he's actually. Maybe it's because he's playing on the same day as Medvedev, perhaps, and I don't know. My attention kind of goes to Medvedev. I think lots of people would probably feel the same. He described his win as a lot of fighting and a little bit of swearing, which I thought was quite a good summary. He was frustrated. He said it took him a time quite a bit of time to work out buyers, someone had never played before. Quite a tricky game. I think I asked him straight up. How was your elbow? And he said, fine. He said, honestly, I've not troubled me to Sydney. It is fine, and he didn't need any treatment, or anything like that. So it's a good sign. Because that's my biggest worry about sits a pass. You know, I do think other than that, the game, the game can be there. So then it sort of feels like. I've dropped a clanger then is what you're saying by not having him in my quarterfinals. I haven't got him in there. We've only worked with the information in front of you. I sort of, I had him losing to Taylor Fritz in round four, which is a much still on course to happen for it to beat TFA today in three sets, which is a big win little wobble from any double faulted serving match point serving for the match, but then he wrapped it up in the third set tiebreak. So they're on a little collision course. That TFA for it to match. I think it was, we didn't get to see that much of it three very competitive sets. I think, for those three, I mean, so striking the difference in physique between those two. One of them has been playing a lot of golf. And the other one's been playing less golf. I would say, but yeah, Taylor Fritz looking good. And I don't know. I don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, we're all thinking vaguely the same thing. So Fritz now faces Roberto Bautista, a goo and sits a pass faces Benoit pair. Who's unexpectedly doing a thing, he's having a run, he's beaten Grigor Dimitrov, he's got this extraordinary head to head, I think, with Gregor Dimitrov has and he's beaten in four times. So who knows? Maybe it's just one of these quirky head to heads, or maybe Benoit paire is ready to finally fulfill his talent anyone want to speculate about whether that's the case is he going to pass? Happy to take it in its own isolation, that particular match. Not to try to read anything into it whatsoever. Understood David understood. Pablo andujar, the movement killer. He has reached round three at the Australian open for the first time aged 35. And I think that deserves a little bit of a round of applause. And he faces Alex domino next. So he's got the chance to do some more movement killing. The first time Alex de menor had won a match on the rod laver arena today, which was a big moment for you. That was the only person that showed up for his press conference. Really? Great, Aussie hope, I know. Wow, that does surprise me. Yeah. How did that conversation go, Matt? This is where I say, find out in the newsletter. But it was very nice. It was very nice. Yes. Sign up then. We didn't plan that folks. Last match, I think that we want to mention is Felix auger LS theme against Alejandro davidovich for kina on the care arena my goodness me this was grueling. I mean, Matt and I went out to watch a short portion of it and that was grueling enough. Went out for a second stint. And that sounded grueling, and then the match seemed to go on for another 7 hours after that. And it was only four sets. Goodness knows what would have happened if Alejandro davidovich for managed to take it into a 5th, which could have happened four tiebreak sets. It was, wasn't it? Marathon marathon stuff. And I know Felix is an extraordinary physical specimen, but he has had serious court time to get to this point. Yeah, and played right in the heat of the day. It was hot today at Melbourne park and this was in the baking sun for four plus hours. Yeah, I found it interesting. I remember we commented on Aussie against battista goo at ATP cup and how good was your earliest scene looked, and how secure he looks. He wasn't making the same errors that he often makes. And I really thought maybe that playing someone with that rhythm helped him. But he's played two players here who give him rhythm. Rusev Rory, and davidovich for kina, their baseline that he's had rhythm. And yet, I've watched quite a lot of him. And he is spraying the ball. You do not know what is coming off of his racket. It's either a sweet connection with a perfect pop, and it looks brilliant. It's sort of mesmerizing. Or it's a shank and it's going ten feet long. And it's a real mix at the moment. And I do think perhaps though the video makes for keener and Rousey, both have firepower. And I think he's been wary of that. And I think he's been trying to pull the trigger a little bit, perhaps when he shouldn't be. Very different style of his next match against Dan Evans, who didn't have to play today. After render kanesh withdrew with a wrist injury. So couldn't be more contrasting circumstances for those two Felix about 8 hours court time into matches Dan Evans very fresh, having had a day off. Sometimes that doesn't help. You know, sometimes that can actually hurt a player. So that's an interesting third round, but gosh, Felix has had to have to battle through and his celebration afterwards was as big as you see from Phoenix also alias seem. He was buzzing to have won that today. He really was. Felix augere seeming in Stan Evans is a match that I can definitely get excited about. That'll be in a couple of days time. The schedule for tomorrow is tasty. It's very tasty indeed, David. There is a lot of this that you're not going to be allowed to watch because it's happening in the middle of the night. And if I see you tweeting at 3 o'clock in the morning again, there is not going to be a podcast tomorrow. Those are the rules. I don't need to start a burner account or something. Yeah. I mean, close your ears for this scheduled David because you're not allowed to watch any of it until the night session, okay? As a ranker against fitter first up on rod laver arena. We'll let you know the result in the podcast, David. Critique of our Panko. Thanks. And then in likely sensational match that you're not allowed to watch news, David, and watch some of this. Alcaraz against bertini. Look. Oh, I'm watching that. If it goes long, you can watch the end, okay? Can you make the others go longer?.
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Oh, it's going to be that kind of interview. Excellent. Yeah. Yeah, I grabbed my popcorn instantly and it really was that kind of interview, wasn't it? This suing the booing, the suing, the whatever it is, it's continued. Sadly. Incidentally, I was watching the Andy Murray match with my daughter before she went to school and two points in. She said, why are they booing? And I said, apparently, they're not boring. They're doing that thing that Ronaldo does. Your brother's always doing when he's trying to pretend to be Ronaldo or whatever when he scored a goal. And she said, oh, I know. It's what boys do to communicate with each other, isn't it? On the bus, then they're just morons. And I said, yeah, that's basically. She's proud of it. She's paraphrased daniil Medvedev, perfectly there. It sounds like she said what Daniel Medvedev did before he before he said it. I completely agree as well. I've been trying to put my finger on why I hate it so much. Because you know I love agro clearly, love atmosphere, you know, I really don't mind drunk Australians in a crowd being a bit silly. I don't mind the occasional naff come on Tim at Wimbledon. You know, I'm into all sorts of crowd vibes. And I really don't like this, and it's something about the fact that it is exclusively male. I mean, maybe there's the old female voice in there being drowned out, but it certainly sounds exclusively male, exclusively just a certain demographic of male that feels so tired and toxic masculinity somehow. It just. Get a life they all think it's so cool. Feather, and Jim Courier had to explain it to downhill Medvedev on the court as well. The fact that all these players, they don't know what's going on. They're mistaking it for booing. Yeah, it's just rubbish. Just stop doing it, right? I'm Medvedev was really irritated by it. There was a different energy to his sort of goading of the crowd in that encore interview. It was a place of irritation, you know, the fact that they were doing it between first and second serves as well is I think the thing which annoyed him the most about it and yeah, and then when he started saying, guys, I can't hear Jim Courier. He's the two time champion. You've got to respect him. I can't hear him that was he said. That was great. He said, at least respect Jim Courier, he won here. It was brilliant. And then very quickly after he went off court, footage started circulating on social media of the interview he had done just off court. The flash interview with eurosport, which had run in a number of different countries where he was asked again about the not booing and he again expressed his irritation with it and he concluded with the mic drop moment of look I mean it's not everyone. I just guess the ones that are doing it have a low IQ. Which is rich I'm using daily from now on. Yeah, I can't remember what I said earlier to Matt like, oh, that's so annoying, isn't it? Yeah, must just have a low IQ. It's capsule, very transferable. So that's still Medvedev. I mean, just fundamentally a far superior tennis player today, he had calmed down a bit, I think, by the time he came to press, he gave a good press conference. He always does, but I think we were expecting slash hoping for some more digs. And he was awfully mature. It is interesting though. My wife was watching it, and she was also hoping curious wins, you know, enjoying the match and that from that through that lens and not not into Medvedev doesn't know Medvedev has never heard him talk before, and then at the end of the match, she heard all this and it turned her view. She thought he was funny. She was thought he was quite charming in his own in his own way, the way he can be, you know, and I think that that is, that is the theme, really, I think people discover him as things go along. And yeah, he's the sort of player that curios kind of could have been, I think. But Medvedev is maximizing. What time you had in the law household today? Of school watching the tennis as a family. That's brilliant. Yeah, what a day. Medvedev faces Burt vendors and scope. Next. Medvedev, I think he's the only player on tour that can pronounce fenders and scopes name. He taught me how to pronounce it, in fact. So, I mean, it's hard to see him losing that it's hard to see him losing to anybody other than someone that just puts in the performance of their life at the moment. But who got a set off? At the U.S. open, wasn't he? I mean, I'm not sure that necessarily tells us that he's going to threaten Medvedev more than most, but it was unusual match for Medvedev that the U.S. open he had a real offset after crushing him and I just don't see that happening again. There's a, I don't know, just he's more experienced, he talks a lot about the experiences gained from the U.S. open. He's navigating his way through drawers. I thought that was brilliant the way he just didn't get involved with the crowd today during the match. There was not a flicker from him at all. He just played it straight and did what he had to do and yeah, I think he probably could have engaged the crowd a bit more and still won, but he realized what the best course for him was and just knows himself better and better as a tennis player, I think. So why were Matt and I not watching Nick curios against anyone? Well, that's because we were, as we said on the second court watching emirati Kanye, battle it out. Against danker covenant this match was wild. It was it was all sorts of craziness, folks. Fantastically entertaining. I tried to get there for the start of the match just missed the first ball. And of course that meant I spent three games laptop in arm bag in another arm, water bottle, dangling off one of my fingertips trying to look over a bunch of David law science height heads to see a screen while I'm waiting outside a door to get into the match anyway. Luckily, those first three games didn't last very long because radically just I sent a text to the group saying, oh, Brad O'Connor's just doing it again. Three love up, she goes, and it's a double break. She's serving at three love. It all just looks a dream. And then she went 5 points in the next 5 games. And during that time, she gets a medical timeout for a blister on her on her racket and hand on her right hand. And it's clear that it's an extremely nasty blister. I have to say, Matt and I did raise an eyebrow in her first match against Sloane Stephens. She was shaking out her hand a lot. And obviously she ended up winning that much playing really well, so we put those concerns to the back of our mind. Well, they were very much at the front of our mind at this point in this match and then the training comes on and all becomes all becomes clear. Following the visit of the trainer late on in the first set, which she loses, emirati starts hitting exclusively.

"Well, what a day it has been day four of the Australian open Matt and I have just got back after 13 hours on site covering a an extraordinary day of tennis. We were both up before the matches even started yesterday was a success, our body clocks are back on track. We were up early enough even to watch the channel line build up to the day's play. Which means pre 10 a.m. David, we were up early enough to watch or I watched a feature entitled anatomy of an upset. Detailing exactly how curios was going to pull off the impossible and Medvedev on the rod laver arena this evening. It did an age brilliantly folks. No, I mean, upsets was the theme of the day, just not that one. Yeah, anatomy of an upset, David. It was a detailed forensic analysis of how Nick curios plays his best against the best players in the world and he's fresh because he hasn't played any tennis in 8 months and my take on the match and I didn't watch as much of it as you, David, because there was a lot going on this evening Matt and I won the second court watching emirati plenty more of that later, don't worry. My take on Medvedev curios, though, and you can tell me if I'm wrong, is that actually curious? Did play is best. Yeah. His best is just scraping a set against Daniel Medvedev. Yeah, and I don't think we'll ever know. I suspect we'll never know throughout his career now, whether he's got another level in him, which might come of dedication and regular training and having a coach. Those are levels that I think Nick curios just career will never provide for us to tell us whether that would have been possible. But with what he's got right now, I think he did all of the things that in years gone by we would have said, I hope we see this from the curiosity. He came out. He was firing, he was dialed in. He was loosening himself up with a few off pace shots. He was digging into rallies. He was pushing Medvedev, and he even did something I wasn't expecting, which was to win the third set after losing the first two. Didn't expect that because I felt that that showed some real determination and mental strength to carry on and persist even though two sets of down. He made he made a comeback and he made it exciting in the crowd were into it and they were trying to get under Medvedev's skin into some degree they achieved that and there was some incredible highlight moments and my son who was off school today wasn't feeling very well, but my word if he did look like he did at midway through this match when we said he didn't have to get a school, he'd have been going to school because he was jumping up and down and mimicking curios and loving all of his tricks and all these sort of things. I thought curious did really well, but what was most telling, and I didn't get to see his press comments personally, but I did hear him motion to his support team and just say, I can't do any more than I'm doing. I've just hit. I'm hitting two 20. If I hit two 40, he just sort of motions and just strokes it back as though it's nothing. I'm throwing the kitchen sink at Medvedev. He writes Medvedev so highly. That much is clear. And frankly, he's got every right to. Beth hardcore player in the world Nick curios called cor Bebe after the match. I mean, that is kind of his style, isn't it? That's what Nick curios does after losses. He says the guys lost to is the best player in the world. But Daniel Medvedev very well might be the best player in the world at this particular moment. Obviously, according to the rankings and the rankings don't lie over the last 12 months, Novak Djokovic has been the best player in the world. Rather ironically, the most circus Y agro tastic moment of the whole match came from Daniel Medvedev. In the post much interview, I waited four minutes, folks before I got on to the med that I post match interview. I hope we can all agree that I've been extremely restrained. But talk us through it. Help me relive the glory that was Medvedev, courier, everything that ensued. Well, we were on the second chord, weren't we in to get from the second corp back to the press center. You quite conveniently have to walk past the rod laver arena. And we saw that it was 5 to Medvedev in the fourth set. He was closing in on victory. And we under now, didn't we? Whether it was worth going in to see the end because it presumably was just going to be there for a game or two. But then we remembered Medvedev and the potential for interview ago. And we made some good decisions today. That was the best decision we made all day to get in the stadium to witness that I'm trying to remember how it went Jim Courier asked him quite a open first question, didn't he? Something not quite remember what the question was, but it was just sort of general thoughts on the match and how you enjoyed it. Yeah, it was boilerplate first question. And Medvedev went dead eyed stare, stone cold one liner answer. I enjoyed it. I'm glad that I won. And it was a moment of.

"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"In terms of the men's quarterfinal lineup it's hard to say with this fewer surprises, more surprises, don't really know. There's no utter shocks, but there are some there have been some quirky results along the maid may be the quirkiest of the lot. Came yesterday last night, UK time, Grigor Dimitrov, beating Daniel Medvedev. I call that big shot. Yes, certainly, from the position he found himself in which was utterly down and out. In that match a certain four one down? Four one double break. Four one double break down to the topsy U.S. open champion daniil Medvedev. You've just written on the agenda here, mat what the hell happened? I was hoping for an answer rather than a question. Because I don't know the answer. When I was watching nori versus Tommy Paul at the time, because that was the close contest I was keeping an eye on that Medvedev Dimitrov match. But from everything I was reading about it, it sounded like Medvedev was just cruising, you know, playing really well, not giving anything away, no one forced errors being so hard to beat that even Dimitrov playing quite well. Couldn't really get close to him. And then what happened was a collapse. I mean, a complete collapse for Medvedev. It can get served in, suddenly he stopped being miserly from the baseline and ended up giving away so many cheap points and bad unforced errors and at the same time played brilliantly. I mean, really stunning tennis from him using that slice backhand to draw Medvedev in to take the rhythm away to give him a different look and then using his own athleticism to extend the rallies and win the long rallies and it was brilliant to watch Dimitrov like that. A real flowery of his best tennis. And I must say normally that's accompanied by, oh my God, Dimitrov's happening. This is the moment what if this is going there? But that's the thing. There was none of that. And I don't know whether that's sad that none of that was attached. Well, maybe there was for David, but for me, it just allowed me to just appreciate that 50 minutes of tennis or whatever it was from Dimitrov. It was just nice to watch for that length of time. But very strange for Medvedev. Yeah, it reminded me of the less dramatic in tennis terms meltdown he had against Andrei Rublev in Cincinnati. Which obviously was precipitated by a very dramatic incident with the TV camera, which he later ended up later ended up assaulting in frustration now he was less in control of the school line. I can't remember exactly what sage was. It felt like he was in control of the match, but not as decisively as he was here against immature of. But I remember after that loss to Rublev in Cincinnati, massive question suddenly being asked about whether he'd regressed, you know, on the player that he'd transformed himself into the one that reached the U.S. open final two years previously in the Australian open final earlier that year. You know, whether he was letting the sort of immature parts of his personality that Jill savarin, he had worked so hard to win out whether he was letting them creep back in, and then of course he went on to reach the U.S. open and there were various points in that room and I was waiting desperately hanging out for I grow, and he just. He just wasn't prepared to go to our great town, was he Daniel Medvedev, and it was like all of that pent up our grove that he has been wanting to release. I know it felt like all of that came out. Yesterday and he just turned into a teenager on the court briefly, you know, it was very strange. Interesting to listen to him in his press conference afterwards because he said a few really interesting things. One he said I was, I have been really exhausted since the U.S. open. Obviously he played the labor cup as well. He said, I wouldn't say that before the matches, of course, but I can say it now. And he did he also gave another cup of really interesting insights. And I think maybe we can take something a little bit of this to what happened in Cincinnati and then the U.S. open. He said, I definitely don't think this a collapse like this would happen in a Grand Slam. I when the intensity and the now or never element to it is so extreme compared to a tournament in a slightly lower level where, yes, I want to, you know, he needs to win. He wants to win, but it's not life or death, in terms of his career, where a Grand Slam, he can not allow that to happen. He also said that he felt Dimitrov really flick to switch and he's got in his own game. And he said he played, Grigor, a better level in the second half of that match than any of Medvedev's opponents throughout that U.S. open. He gave this throwaway line at the end he said, at this level, if he plays this level, he should win the tournament. But let's see the end result. It's been on the Grigor Dimitrov journey with all of us. Exactly. By the way, at 9 29, p.m., just before I went to bed, the match was starting. So I saw one point of it live. The first one. And it was won by Dimitrov and the way won it made me go oh. And then I turned it off. And then I watched the highlights this morning, and you know, you were talking about his use of the slice Matt and I came up with a description of what I feel his tactics were. They were really clever tactics, and to kind of briefly summarize them. I'd call it slice and shoot because what he was doing is he was floating his slice back and just try and diffuse the game of Medvedev. And often he was looping his forehand as well, and then every so often he would absolutely blast his forehand mid rally. So it felt like Medvedev really didn't know which one was coming. Is it going to be this slow floaty backhand slice? Is it going to be this looped forehand or is he going to flatten out the back end and go for it down the line or is he going to S.W.A.T. a forehand cross court and like a dart being shot? And it was a really effective technique. I mean, I've seen Federer play Medvedev. I think three times, and he's won all of those matches. It's probably before Medvedev really became what he is now, before that summer hardcore run of 2019, all of those matches. But I remember thinking Federer had the variety and the change of pace and the shot selection to disrupt Medvedev. And I think we saw a lot of that from yesterday's got options. He can take Medvedev out of his rhythm that he loves so much. And yeah, he was brilliant, really was. I think it actually reminded me of Djokovic's sudden inability to play his best tennis in that Olympic semifinal, where, you know, he was in cruise control, and suddenly his game just went. And I think that stemmed a little bit from a sort of mental fatigue as well. And it strikes me what Medvedev's suffering a little bit that you described there, post U.S. open. Of course, the other thing is, yes, Medvedev felt like a favorite coming into this tournament, but I never would have put in favor above the field. In a way that I think we've become so used to feeling immense tennis with the big three. If a big three members in form, you think, okay, you take them ahead of the field. But it's just the sort of readjustment of expectations that I think going to have to have over these next few years. Yes, Medvedev might be in really good form. But he's not Djokovic or he's not in the dial. I don't think he's going to be winning loads and loads of these tournaments, you know, 20 plus in the way that those players have. So the chances are he will have these lapses. They're still win big tournament, but I just don't expect him to be piling them up, week in week out in the same way that we've seen in men's tennis for like ten or 15 years..
"medvedev" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"Smaller data sets mona. Had that whole string of just like crap draws but also just kind of lake got serve all off the court by taylor. Townsend drew sharipova in her first us. Open or i land since coming back. You know A got connecticut on armstrong. I mean it was just brutal draws so but has made a semifinal here but ultimately yeah. I mean between the three of them. They've made to australian open finals. That's as close as they've each cotton and argued leak are being a and simona probably should one those matches. I mean. they're are closed. Yeah yup. I believe so but yeah weird but yeah all that is just to say to the extent that anybody will deign to take. You know. Women's tennis as a a helpful indicator of what what could potentially happen on the men's side as well. I think that it's a pretty fair Just having i'm all for conflict between the two let let's get to at last hour champion of wins it collapses to the ground left l. to he is my name a troll king of the highest order. And i said it. I did serve half-jokingly or more than half the real mummy. He on the open twenty nineteen when he was egging on the crowd. But there's something about that. He seemed so in control of himself or dislike it has it has its way of lake reading things reading the game and reading the sport and he's just smart in this weather. It's different and refreshing intr- very interesting to talk to you very insightful. Very like rye and funny and clever and listening to you don't always get that often in tennis. Honestly and he is. Yeah he's a he's a delight and this is a you know this. This is number two in the very clear number two on paper. It's very clear the heir-apparent being number one. I mean it feels like it felt like a big upset and somebody's at the time but method of his building towards this. He's one pretty much. The big tournament touchy as interesting looking his titles. He's incredibly good. Second half of the season player weirdly. Yeah very not good in the first happenings won't cannons went to cincinnati. He's money shanghai diesel. He's one he's when baresi he's one year end championships. Were they call it now. Atp finals it's it's it's a great title for him and is tennis. Looks is is not like. It's interesting. I i don't love people. I know people who stay way back to return serving. Keep i do hate it. Becomes four really quickly. And he's yeah. He's he's clear. I just love watching the ball. Anybody else just loves those weird funky mechanics hitting tennis balls. You just enjoy watching plan that very pure basic level and i think it's a hugely deserved title in nappy form. I think he's a. I don't know he's i don't know if there's like an ostrich inevitable era of any kind. I don't know what the future holds Barely but this was something that was definitely achieved very meaningfully. Well in both the sort of longer term like i said building resume shorter term and he was dominant headed. Relatively easy draw should be said. They only lost one set about the whole way so legend suddenly exactly so anyway so he. He rolled and he's deserving champion end. I think will be someone who the sport can be pretty happy with. Yeah i an unabashed. met medvedev supporter. I i like washing plant. And he is he's bands in a human being You know like like the way that he plays the way that he is like all the decision-making he is a reactor of the highest order. He see you know you can throw whatever you want kitchen sink. He will come up with something special he won't even whereas i feel like with novak novik is also very much obviously the same thing but As if feel like novak's a little bit more kind of I always use this phrase but the players player like he makes the percentage play not neighbouring way. But he does the right thing all the time. Medvedev is always kind of like a. I see what the right thing is what i could pull this off the for whimsey to. There's a whims. Yeah there's a windsor some wits in the way that medved is as a person in interviews. I love watching. His press conferences. love watching his interviews. I think he's incredibly smart articulate of very funny very self deprecating but also his game. I think that his game is very witty in the same way where you serve me out wide. I'm going to try and go around the around the post and just remind you never hit back again like you know like around the posts on a return again. You should let anywhere but flag like with tons of margin like the ball ended up like two feet inside the baseline going around the post. It was so at tweeted out ahead. Return on the night before i felt like hundreds of replies being like oh this happening all the time it would not understand the word return in tweet. I was like oh my gosh. It's a return. Here's the thing thing. I just wanna circle back. You know. Because i like thirty rock and arrests development. Two of my favorite shows Comedic shows you kind of circle back to to to jokes running jokes. Words need something There are technical definitions and in tennis. There's a technical definition of a return is a return pretty specific. It's very specific what that means. It is not a shot from the baseline like that's different than a return inward if you're just using it as a shot. Yes that's using a shot. People just did not comprehend it and it was deeply toy anyway But Yeah so i think that's very medvedeva. That's what i enjoy watching about him because even though ultimately maybe he's kind of just doing what everybody else is doing top player you know but there is yeah. Whimsey is the right word in terms of of what he's he's doing out there and how his mind thinks and there's a little bit of playfulness of very playful. You kind of like. I just wanna to do this. And i was joking with howard bryant because there was that section in the third set where or maybe even second-set where medvedev was displaying terribly based drop-shotting novak but heating really shitty dropped shots and just like whatever and slow. The momentum started to shift a little bit that's got a little bit closer third-set but I was telling. I was telling howard it was like if this is. If there's any such thing as a reverse heat check this is what it is which is medvedev going. Typically for those who don't know heat track is a term in basketball typically Which is when you're you're just making baskets all the time that you decide to do something so crazy just to see. Am i that hot. Like how am i. You know like steph curry. Does it all the time like you know what. I'm just gonna shoot from midcourt for having today the oh it went in okay. I got it today or at least for the next ten minutes so a reverse he check to me is what.
Djokovic's Bid for Year's Grand Slam Ends Against Medvedev
"The grand slam dream another joke of it just turned to a nightmare after a straight sets loss to the U. S. open men's final lackluster Djokovic struggle from the very first game against the second state dental Medvedev and saw his hopes of a record twenty first major win and a calendar year slam taken away as a Russian pad to a six four six four six four victory the took two hours and fifteen minutes I do feel sorry for not because I I I I can't imagine what it feels I don't know this film but it definitely makes it sweeter the wear and tear of one five set and full force it matches on the way to the final obviously took its toll on the thirty four year old son it was made but its first major win I'm Graham like us

"Could be a ethics. I really really think and hope it will be because medvedev. I believe we'll bring yes. Australia He really didn't and i think like that. That quote gave when he lost at wimbledon is just is an an except isn't acceptable. I just i just don't think he'll let that happen again. Medvedev i think i think he could drag some joke of. It's just to some dark places to win but jovic is more prepared than anybody in history to go to the places. We are expecting it to be hot. I believe yeah. Apparently ten degrees hotter than we had today Which i don't think helps either. They both hate booth. They are fairly. Yeah yeah yeah. I don't think that necessarily as a particular bearing on the mattress because neither of them will enjoy it. but they'll grit their teeth through it. I think yeah i think. At least it shouldn't be sunny on the court. At that point. I think it will at least be in shade. Yes yes i'm from. Selfish fewest points of view. That is very important. Shadow is problematic and the players. Don't like it either. Ps but i'm just being extremely extremely so important about that issue. Other things happened at the billie. Jean king national tennyson today that are pretty momentous and probably deserve a lot more time than the mccain to end up giving them just because like the most momentous thing ever also happen to today. I covered the men's doubles final yesterday that we neglected to mention on the podcast. Apologies that we've been.

Murray brunei suarez in the final really good actually Three-setter mazing to have british representation on both sides of the net ramen soulsby. They're just. They're really good doubles team. They've got they've got kind of the perfect vibe together as a team. Rajiv rounder. seems like the coolest guy in town playing front of his home. Fans meant loads to him but he took it all in such a relaxed way. In jason's we was feeding off the crowd energy of having an american partner therefore being an honorary american. Tough one for jamie. Murray brunei suarez. They they wanted it. But it's still a massive result for them to get in get into the final there. That reunion together had hadn't been a disaster too. But you know hadn't been just oh we're back together. We're gonna start winning grand slams against a massive result delightful scenes with little nervous warez on the court. We like nervous juarez.

"medvedev" Discussed on The Passing Shot Tennis Podcast
"They set points and One that seconds at seven five and then kind of three the third set quite comfortably. So i just feel like it's you know we've got a repeat of the instruction from final earlier in the year which. I think everyone's really hike to the time for and it was quite a script and the ad. It wasn't what we were perhaps expecting just faded. That's gonna happen again. I know i keep saying that. But i just don't see medvedev obsessively apple. God's tomorrow is funny because i think this has underlined his novak djokovic daniel medvedev they are probably the two best hardcore players. hukou plays on the tool the fact that you know we. I think we know that we've jakovich through the three seasons but the fact that medvedev has now reached both finals in the hawk slams australian open. us open. I think does emphasize that. And i think particularly in terms of the the manner of his victories this tournament. Yes that was a little bit of a slip up against bosch. Van design shope winning in full. But apart from that it's been really ready. Retain on the semi final against felix. Asia was different and thing. Faa was a little bit let down by his forehand. Quite few unforced errors particularly from that wing. And i think in medvedev he's just like a brick wall isn't he and felix. I don't just think he has the variety we have the variety. I think to understand ought to really test medvedev in a way that was going to put him outside of his comfort zone. I mean yes. It would have been a lot more interesting. I think particularly for the fans if it had to go one settled and it really. I think data on that second set wet medvedev was able to kind of come back from a situation where you for. Faa was in the ascendancy and then who knows it might have been much will interesting but you just think given the the defensive nature of medvedev or the oath of like qualities. He possesses the the lack of rights. I think in. Faa's game was one of the reasons. I think this was such a. I think i think honestly i was a bit of a snooze sas. Actually i think that was one of the reasons for it and whatever was coming. Medvedev's way in that match from from. Faa medvedev was confident that he had the better of him. Yeah and they have been dying. Well i take thing we can really assess how whoa he's been playing when he doesn't have well. Hasn't the opponent to really challenge like jake. Chuck rich is going to be doing in final so like great. He's very consistent. He's come through quick against everyone but he hasn't hasn't really been tested To be honest city in the way that going into final against the the goats. now am i just get. i called. say him being able to suddenly raises game. I think he's gonna perhaps d- what he did in australia. Which was incredibly frustration and kind of lose the plot mentally as well and he's got to make sure he doesn't. He doesn't do that. he's gonna look back. I think on that final is very much a in. Some instances is a very much a like for like experience and it will be fascinating to see what him and his team khadr up in times of plan and what they've learned from that experience at the australian open. I think it was quite insightful. To hear that he said afterwards that he didn't think he played his best match today. Which i guess is a bit of a a bit of a confidence boost in sense that even he wasn't playing his best. You still able to beat one of the very good player in felix jannuzi in straight-sets. But then i'm sort worried at the same time that he's going to need to the he is going to need to raise his level. In the final and djokovic did have a test he has had tests. I think all the way through the competition and maybe you could say that those tests that he has brought upon himself by having a a slow start but certainly. I think that he has been in situations particularly with the crowd being against him. And you know being saddled with all of the hype around the the calendar slam. It's it's things that he has had to deal with whereas medvedev has built really had any anything to Has had anything to do with and so been very relaxed. That's a bit too relaxed. And he's going to need to get out of that You know mindset. I think for the the final where he will way. And i think a little bit as the underdog whereas he's obviously been the favourite way through up to this point and he's gonna need to figure out how to reach a level that maybe we haven't haven't seen yet he hasn't even i don't think being pushed to see. And even if novak djokovic starts slowly gotten a medvedev is going to need to be able. I think to obviously producer very consistent matching. You know it's not gonna just be about the star is gonna be about the end and we know the the the longer. I think dave chuck rich matt's goes on particularly in a grand slam final. It it favors him so for medvedev gets a bit light. he's gonna. he's as ridiculous as sounds. It feels like he's going to need to try with that in three sets of full because if it goes to a fifth that's novak djokovic territory and there's not many people who have beaten novak djokovic in a fifth set in a grand slam final. An antibody has done it. I was there for it back in in two thousand twelve but it does not happen very often. Yeah i feel like we need a six. Pass it right on. Carol situation where you know. Jacob rituals quite tense at the store that match and played very very well..

"medvedev" Discussed on The Passing Shot Tennis Podcast
"We are done and dusted with roaches up in canada in betrayal ad toronto. We have our two segel's champions danielle medvedev and somewhat. Surprisingly camila giorgi we're going to be dissecting and talking about how both as events unfolded we're gonna be looking into the cincinnati drawers as well and also talking about the sad news that roger federer will unfortunately need new niece edgy which is going to be putting him out. Fill like indefinitely For the future that's kinda crackle and start with. The tennis has been going on in canada. Install in toronto with the men's one thousand events. Daniel medvedev or champion. And i think they're the story of the kotex really of the bosses of edsel the men's side. The season thing really has been a story for the next gen. It's it's been the opportunity. I think for the next gen players play as light method. Medvedev varela's well to shoot cash year. It's been narrow. Potentially i think to to develop and win titles because it has been a really field this season anyways really been a premium for any of the big three to turn up and this time around it was the same situation novak djokovic rafael on the dow was going to be that also footsie pulled out so really wasn't another opportunity. I felt for you know one of those younger players to step up and make themselves. Yeah i feel tournament organizers. Probably like tearing their heads because they wouldn't like the top three played night the big three d-box extra all. I don't top three anymore. They ran on down to number four in the world. say weep. Obviously that we use the lease time big three. I think paul from the rain vinyl which was rafa novak. Yet they've been very very absent mostly But you know this is a little bit reminiscent joel of two thousand. Nineteen when dunno medvedev kind of went on not ridiculous streak on dominated like the us open series. So i wonder if we're going to see that happen again because he wasn't the rojas cop on the weekend straight sets in the final against raleigh poker who has been having a decent season but i necessarily think he would have been the and we would have expected to go to to his first despite all But medvedev very much. The main man i think actually the first player outside of the big three to actually win a as title at being the top seed say. He's justified his. If there was any pressure. Being the top seed are necessary. I have been pressure but you know he certainly come through. Flying colors yeah. It was really impressive particularly end. I think to the tournament for him. Because he came up against joel nigga in the semifinal then riley appelgren the final two of the biggest servers in the in the game and yeah it was it really tested particularly of course his his return game and he was just able to swap them away with with relatively relative ease came through john is really comfortably in the semi's and then a palca. I wanted a you know. A polka played really really well against surpass in the in the semi's winning that in three sets. I wonder if that took quite out of him. Because i felt like the conditions this week have been quite Punishing times but yeah. It's been really really impressive from medvedev. Do wonder if this is the story of another if a thought to another Streak full him. He's already looking like he's ready to fill the open. I mean if i'm being on this. I actually think is i'm i'm looking at the way he's playing at the moment and i'm thinking particular hall. I'm thinking is he. Is he ready to take on. Vat djokovic shaw on the in flushing meadow and win. Because i get the feeling that this is a point in time. Where he's he's paid enough tennis now. He's he's really awkward and unorthodox and not many players are able to beat him He's already. I think two finals This season and yeah it just feels like now. A grand slam is the next thing to really kind of cap. It often the. Us open feels kind of right for him back to dominate table on the clay. It felt like here. He was going to be the next challenge. I think to Dowell at the french open. And i saw a feel like this is the the momentum we saw seeing i think with medvedev and the fact that you know. He's winning these tournaments as the top seed. Now we're expecting him to win. And he's doing so relatively comfort- comfortable He did have a tricky match against you cash in in the finals but fact that he's doing it so well in so impressively does make me think that he is ready to kind of take on the ultimate test i think when it could potentially be novak djokovic at the us open well. Yeah joe i i get your comparison with dome team but dominic team never actually managed to be a Garrels yet here. We go you say your we've with. He was winning lapping. Pull they kind of clay events. Know five hundred mosses never use ready to make not jumped in five and we saw that. I think we've medvedev came also. Didn't he against nepal in the us open final few years ago. But i do think now with with jovic and the way he's playing he's gonna. He's the now that he feels that the belief i think that he can. He can really take a cry. Definitely and i mean coming through against massive services only get a.
"medvedev" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"What about toronto. Which was won by denno medvedev beating radio palca six four six three in the final backing up his win over john is ner in the previous round six two six two so he is just basically thrashed agai of six foot ten and then he's routinely beaten guy six foot eleven has medvedev and i mean i was thinking catherine about the the contrast with this title win and the one of the ones of two years ago when when when they felt not out of the blue but an incredible run informed. I kept on thinking. Well this has got to win some time. And he looked increase in the ass on his feet while he doesn't count on his feet tall having won that title he looks like a no. He had an absolute epic against hubert stood knee in the quarterfinals. But even so he's he just looks like he's got so much in the tank he looks utterly on a mission to me as evidenced by his tennis by the way he's toolkit even by the way he's walking around the court in this just intent in everything like novak djokovic. I'm coming for you. I'm going to be the guy that stop see. That's what i feel like. Every step that he takes is saying at the moment and he might be wrong but he's going to say it until he's braven wrong and his tennis. This week was sublime best. I've seen imply. I mean he is the second best tennis player in the world and he is a threat tonight. Jovic completing the common to slam. I think he's the threat to jovic completing not slam. He is so agile around the call. Now six six inches tall. He's it moves like a dream and he can hit winstrom everywhere. He so canny so-so county always seems to choose the right shot. And just greg rusedski made the point in the studio today that it's all about the outcome to him. It's all about just winning. The point doesn't matter how pretty something as doesn't always wanna play the nice show sometimes what he does looks a little bit funkier on the dogs. But it's always seems to result in the best possible outcome in that scenario Yeah i think he's in the zone and he will make sure i think the jovic another they. They won't meet until the final if they also meet but he will dimond. Jovic plays best to complete that calendar slam. I think he's the man different australia than because we we asked. I know i know. I have australia in the back of my mind but it. It does feel different australia to me. Yeah it does. He's he's playing better. tennis denied. this is a different look in his eye. It feel different famous loss words. No i've read i read. It'll he would put up a better performance and and and be more competitive was than he was in australia. Knipe and finally. I'm still confused by it. So i could be wrong about this And jovovich is still absolutely the favorite for the us open but medvedev is a big and real threat. I think crucially. it's different for jackovitch than at the australian open a. He prefers the conditions in australia. He's a what is a nine time champion there. And he's a three time champion. In new york he is practically unbeatable on the rod lever arena. He is slightly more beatable on the author ash stadium and then add in everything that he would be going for in that match. If if it happens as catherine said it can only happen in the final. In new york methodist will be the number. Two seed behind novak djokovic. You have to factor that into how it could affect your convictions under the stress. That he he he may will handle it. He may well beat medvedev. But i really do think it would be. It would be different to their australia. Match yeah and agree. He's he's talking like a world number-two. Now i go back to his press conference after losing to her cactou- wimbledon. He was disgusted with himself. He said this is not good enough by should be getting beyond the fourth round. Let this slip. And he said he laid out is goals started this season to win one of these masters events and to get deep the. Us open reached the final win that title and he's he's just achieving it and you know even beating her catch again here. That is what top players do. They allow themselves to get caught up by opponent. Who's got their number. He is okay. He squeezed past her catch. I think that's a really big win. I think if he got into the us open with an open to recent record against her action had him in his drawer. That really could've been tricky but having that belief that he can beat him is is really quite something and it feels very different two years ago. We've learned so much about medvedev in these two years. We know who he is now and he is a top player. Who is still capable of these sort of femme moment. Says well you know. And i think that's really exciting combination going forward and he someone who really peaks in the second half of the year all of his book titles is his fourth masters one thousand. They've all been the how tournaments at the end of the season. He's also atp finals. He's he's got that staying power in the season he loves the harcourt's and i think there's room for him to certainly have results on grassy started doing a bit better on clay at the french open and he is a force he is here he is. He's not quite the guy because that's novak but he's he's right there behind him now. It did occur to major in the funnel today. Imagine if we turn up at the us open and he wins. Cincinnati as well then arrives to to new york with yokich having won the last three majors and medvedev having won the last two masters in the run-up in the series. Just imagine that for a showdown at the start of the draw..

"No huge surprise that roger federer had had a major setback to his name when we watched him at wimbledon. Losing that six love set really. The writing was on the wall at that point that that something something was wrong and it was a question of how badly it wrong he.
