Would that make Djokovic the first to win all slams (in one season) since Laver?  Considering how much depth there is in tennis, that’s kind of remarkable.  

He’s one win away from:

  • His 21st Grand Slam title, a men’s record (breaking the three-way tie with Federer and Nadal)
  • Winning the calendar Grand Slam, becoming the first man to do so since Rod Laver in 1969

Congrats, Medvedev. He won even without the support of (most of) the crowd.

Yes, that's something that Djokovic has had to deal with his entire career.  It was very rude from the crowd to be cheering for service faults and making noise during Medvedev's serves.  

 

Kind of fascinating to see two US Open villains playing against each other in the final. In case people forgot, this was 2019...

Meddy deserves his first Grand Slam, he absolutely dominated everyone.  The only guy that I thought played better throughout was Zverev.  I think those two are going to dominate tennis for the next 5-6 years. 

 

Berretini can catch up to them if he works on his stamina.  

 

Tsitsipas is the wild card as well.  

 

Felix showed very well until the semi final.  Most players need to get into their mid twenties to put it all together.  It's foolish to look at Federer, Nadal and Djokovic and judge all the new young players according to their standard where the big 3 started dominating the moment they turned 20-21 (actually even younger in Nadal's case). 

 

Young Spaniard that lost to Felix is also another one to keep an eye on.  His forehand is just amazing.

Even for Djokovic he really only ramped up his game in 2011.  He was an elite player who did win the AO as a 20-year old, but he really started to hit his stride when he got a bit older.  The weird thing with him is that he's legitimately improved parts of his game this late in his career, particularly his serve.  At this point it really seems like he has no weaknesses.  Maybe that he's a slow starter?
