I agree except for the comment about the fans who thought she would fail, it was like she had to say something to get even with them, i thought it made her sound resentful and took something away from the happy moment. Coco will have to put up with critics during her entire career, warranted or not, I will say that she has to be remarkable worrying about her critics and still winning, she's an amazing teenager!

The thing that surprised me the most is how well she kept her nerves in check until the very end. She served for the match and that's where the real pressure began, and that what caused Madison Key's to lose in the SF. But she closed it out nicely and cleanly without a hitch!

Anyways, who do you guys think will win the men's match today? You think Medvedev will beat Djokovic like he did two years ago?

I, personally, don't think so because I'm sure Djokovic is out for revenge! I think Djokovic will win this! But then again, Medvedev plays so well on this court, so like Derek said, it's 50/50. So I'm pretty much flipping the coin here in my prediction.

Coco starting getting everything back into play and Sabalenka had to keep trying to hit winner after winner to get the point.....and the errors started racking up.

A lot of those moonball shots CoCo hit look like easy smashes, but they are insanely spinny shots that can do really weird things in the air, or on the bounce. In general Gauff's use of spin was really good, I felt like she played better on her forehand side when she put more topspin on the ball and made Sabalenka go up and get it off the kick bounce. Lots of those unforced errors by the Sabalenka were the results of her misreading the spin on the ball.

Djokovic gets it!
A 4th USO to equal McEnroe and Nadal in New York.
Slam #24 and a fitting tribute to the late Kobe Bryant.

Novak was one set away from the Season Grand Slam this year, which at age 36 is nuts.

I've been saying for years now "enjoy it" because it won't last forever, but Djokovic seems determined to only be defeated by Father Time, who is still playing from behind against this guy. Still, enjoy it, we live in the age of greatness and even the sunset of the Big 3 era is amazing.

Second time he got 3 of 4 grand slams. It’s a shame he gets so close to the calendar year grand slam and misses.

I don't like Margaret Court.

I've always wanted at least one player, male or female or both, to catch her and pass her re number of GS singles titles.

Serena missed catching her by one.

Hopefully Novak gets to 25 and beyond (and Rafa too....but that may not be realistic re how he comes back from injury and 2024 likely being his last year).

A lot of Margaret Court’s AO titles were in the pre Open Era, and before it became a completely open and competitive Major.
Hence most people only go on Serena’s 23 Slams as the real deal.
The CYGS in the Open Era, which Court has and Laver also has on the men’s side, is the only real thing she has over Serena imo.
