Congratulations to Nadal on passing Federer with his 21st major title. In the end I think Djokovic ends up with the most but Nadal holds that title today. We’re seeing the end of the greatest era in tennis with Fed’s career ending soon and with Nadal and Djokovic in their last few years as well. Medvedev is obviously going to be towards the top of the game for years, barring injury, but who steps up to challenge him will be interesting to watch. Fed had no true challengers for a while until a 19-year-old Nadal won the French but I don’t think Medvedev will get the same with Nadal and Djokovic still playing. Fed has been my favorite of the big 3 but he’s objectively the 3rd best of them, as much as I wish he were best. Anyway, I didn’t see anything about it in the forum so I figured I’d represent.

They may not be at the same caliber, but I enjoyed watching more back in the Connors, Borg, McEnroe days.

Caught the last 2 sets this morning. The 2019 US Open and today’s match were both fantastic matches between Nadal and Medvedev. Medvedev is my favorite player so really hated to see that ending. I can’t stand Nadal but he has relentlessness about him that is unmatched by almost any athlete in the world.
