Unreal. He looked cooked before the match even started, then to survive and come back like that is just unbelievable.

Now he faces a fresh Tsitsipas who had a training drill for a match, not expecting a repeat of tonight's efforts.

Luckily for him the conditions on Friday look a lot cooler

I think Medvedev will make the final and play Nadal. But with one less day to recover and some intense matches throughout the tournament I think he may run out of gas in the final.

Both semis are on the same day aren’t they?

True champions find a way to fightback and win. Novak might not be world #1 much longer as Medvedev is here to conquer.
Haven’t seen a better returner since Djokovic. This guy is nuts. Steps into the court from sets 3-5 and just freaking powers and finesse his way back

Choke? Get out of here. Talk about masterclass. Medevev is an animal.
Correct no choke here. Medvedev was amazing for 3 straight points from match point down. It's probably the best auger-alliasime has ever played in a grand slam match at this stage of his career and lost. Medvedev showed why he is a slam champion.

Feel for FAA. Far out he looked unbeatable at times. But that cross court forehand. Got him into so much trouble. Too many unforced errors against a guy that probably has one error for a whole set. He ll learn

Also can we appreciate that Medvedev is the same height as some Rucks and KPFs (198cms).

His movement and court coverage for someone that height is insane.
