5th time's the charm
Another match point... and it's finally over!
Great hold in that last game by Brady. Muchova must have been throwing everything at her going by the scores, but just couldn't get the break back.
Going to be a super interesting final!
What a final game
Jen!! Let’s gooo
Hell of a final game
I wish I could have watched it - the score updates were crazy!
That was essentially an early round showing for Novak. Having the top seed, another day to rest and ensuing blood bath tomorrow, it’s all but a forgone conclusion.
I hope you're wrong, Will, but you're probably not. I'm just holding out hope that Medvedev has reached the point where he can go with Djoke in a slam final. But hell, he has to get to the final first and Tsits won't be easy...
I like Jim Courier on TC, but he'd be good on ESPN.
And then Naomi did, and called her sister out afterwards.
Tank looks pretty empty for Stefanos.
Stef threw a water bottle in frustration and spilled water everywhere. Daniil’s reaction lol
From last Friday:
Nice to actually get one right for a change...
Daniil is my favorite men’s player to watch at this point. I also thought this morning was going the distance, helps him out tons on short rest against Novak. Looking forward to both finals.
I think med has a good shot at beating him. He can play defense on a different level than most of the other guys.
H2H Novak is 4-3, however Dan took 3 out of the last 4 times they played. Also on of those losses was the first time they ever met and Dan retired in what was a close match.
The fucking court coverage here. He’s outside the opposing doubles alley on return, then all the way at the other one with time to spare on the winner.
I think he wins it all
Agree, very impressive. It also helps he's 6'6" lol
So god damn quick. 99.9999 percent of people wouldn’t even react to that shot because they couldn’t get within 5 feet of that thing.
Gentleman, Medvedev is taking the final vs Djokovic. It is known.
Here we go, can’t wait to sleep normal again.
Is this going to be competitive?
To stay awake yes. In terms of tennis I doubt it. Osaka should roll.
Good bounce back after a nervy start for Jen
Brady showing a bit in the first. This is not going to be the steamrolling I expected.
Ouch. Couple of bad misses there to give Naomi the set. Can’t do that.
Utterly ridiculous stat for Naomi - she is 44-1 when winning the first set in a slam. And 20-0 in Melbourne.
Naomi not even playing particularly well - Brady just making too many unforced errors. This could be a quick finish if she can't step it up...
Brady about 2 points from being out of this match...
Now just one...
And that's 4-0
Great run for Naomi. Just a special, special player.
Best in the world, baby!
Not sure what Brady could have done. Basically you need to play perfectly against her to win.
So sweet from Naomi - she wrote "Love you guys " on the camera.
Would like Danil to take this second set and make a match of it.
Just saw the score - can't say I'm surprised Djoke is going to win, but I thought it would be more of a contest.
So much for Danil stans. What a capitulation. Dang what a dominant performance for Djoko though. He's going to be thinking about #20 by the year end if he can keep this up.
What an absolute ass kicking
Didn’t expect Medvedev to melt down like that. Oh well...
Y'all think this is fake?

Might render the men's side unwatchable. I'm sure there will be a few guys that will be exciting to watch with a lot of snooze fests in between.
Yeah, I'm definitely interested to see what the field looks like. It's still Masters 1000 points but the money of a 500 basically. And the clay swing starts a week or two after back in Europe.
Ostapenko just falling off the way she has is bouchard-esque
thought she'd be a serious player
