The Nadal-Federer semi-final took a while to get going but the last couple of sets were superb. Just felt Rafa was always having to chase it, losing the first few points on every game and always finding himself in trouble but he dug in and battled like nobody else can.

Federer certainly has another few years left at the top level.

He has never beaten both Djokovic and Nadal in the same slam so it would be some feat for him to do this year but hard to look past Djokovic. Once again the first set is crucial, Federer wins it and I fancy him to do it, Djokovic takes it and I really struggle to see how he can come back.

1 over each.

England seriously lucky. Last over Stokes stuck it up in air guy caught it then walked over the line. 6 runs England. Couple balls later England scramble for 2 and guy tried to stump him and it hits Stokes bat on way to wicked and that goes for 6.

Vamos Rafa!!!

No 19

He had to win that game three times after throwing it away twice. I don't think he'd have recovered from that if he lost it.

Amazing match, my compatriot did us proud there, both in need of an IV i think.

Rafa too tough in the end.

If Medvedev can sustain or build up this year's summer hard court form then he will win a hard court slam next year for sure.

I think Djokovic might now struggle to reach 20, the next gen will all be taking confidence from Medvedev and they will have the belief that they are as good or better than them. The problem for Djokovic is that they are all at their best on hard courts, guys like Zverev, Tsitsipas, Rublev, Khachanov, FAA and Shapovalov all have a game made for hard courts and that's Djokovic's bread and butter.

I think the changing of guard is now going to come a lot sooner than people think and I think we'll have a next gen slam champion for sure next season.

I think Nadal will just do enough (injury permitting) to oust Federer in slam titles and rightfully take his place as the GOAT. He still has no peers on clay and I think if he gets the next two years of play without injuries or setbacks he will pick up one or two RG. I think last night might be his last non-clay slam though.

I reckon Djokovic will easily hit 20 and finish top of the pile. Then again, Nadal could keep winning at RG until he is 40.
