US Open men's final preview

Nadal and Medvedev

Rafael Nadal has been relentless in his pursuit of a fourth US Open title and we can't see Daniil Medvedev standing in his way at Flushing Meadows. Only once before had Nadal lost a Grand Slam match after taking the opening two sets.

"It was a tough one", Medvedev said. It marked Nadal's US Open debut and second Slam start after Wimbledon earlier that year.

The Spaniard has won three of his 18 majors on this court, Federer has won five of his 20 here - in a row, the last of them 11 years ago - and Djokovic, the world No 1, has lifted three of 16 at Flushing Meadows. But somewhat surprisingly, the US Open - where Nadal has won three titles - has become something of a second home. In the victory, Medvedev won 75 percent of his first serve points and 48 percent of his second serve points.

He's undoubtedly the heavy favorite.

However to write down off the Russian could be fully foolhardy.

"He can win the title".

Though clearly boosted by avoiding each Djokovic and Federer, Medvedev's run has been nothing in need of unimaginable. However, the world number two jumped Cincinnati, where Medvedev was the victor the subsequent week. The Russian looked in better shape against Dimitrov in their semi-final than he had in a few rounds and he will benefit from a straight-sets match and a day's rest before the biggest match of his young career so far.

Since then, Medvedev has been apologetic about his trolling and much calmer during matches, while playing deliciously defensive tennis that he can abandon to be more aggressive when he deems necessary. I knew I was going the right way, I just had to fight for every set, for every point. After breaking to lead 3-2 in the fifth, in a game Medvedev led 40-love before flubbing an easy forehand, Nadal broke again and served for the championship at 5-2. I kept on believing again in the work, the rehab I had to put behind my shoulder, the exercise, the practice, fixing up the racquet a little bit. So I want all of you to know when you sleep tonight: "I won because of you". Very fast backhand. His backhands gave me a lot of trouble. In New York over the past fortnight, he has moved from anonymity to star, winding up the crowd, who booed him then loved him; the self-styled new bad boy of tennis.

"I lost a lot of matches in my career when I was getting insane. Do you?" Federer said.

"I was sitting after these matches, I was like, 'I don't want to lose these matches because I get insane or because I lose some concentration because of the fans, because of the referees, something that happens during the match'".

"I just didn't play good enough on those key points, especially I think the set point in the first set. It's going to help me". Nadal wants the record, but he doesn't need it to be satisfied with who he is. Nadal said. "I survived at that moment and. after that, the match completely changed".

'I will not say that I'm a kind person or a good person. "I think it's okay".

"The only thing I'm anxious about [is] physically". If not, is so hard. After that he was very solid during the whole year.

"Talking about Rafa, it's tough to find words", said Medvedev. So many gamers and so many individuals discovered them earlier than me. "He's one of the greatest champions in the history of our sport". The power he's exhibiting is simply superb. It's not going to be a humorous factor, nevertheless it's going to be an incredible factor to stay'. "It's not going to be a amusing thing, but it's going to be an wonderful thing".

However within the absence of Federer and Djokovic, Medvedev actually is the hardest opponent he may face.
