The prospect of Medvedev tennis is a gloomy one. Long boring rallies with no natural aggressor, no net game….just cautious ground shot after ground shot. Thankfully Dimitrov, often a bridesmaid sent the Russian packing.
Djokovic remains the number one player in tennis and this result shows why….the number one player doesn’t get so easily fleeced.
Tennis desperately needs the next Connors, Borg, McEnroe, Edberg, Sampras, Federer, Nadal, Djokovic. None of the current men’s rising stars fit that bill.
