its a 2 sets to 1 lead to Djokovic over Zverev

Djokovic 1.20 v 5.70 Zverev

can't be backing Zverev at those odds unfortunately. Just sit back and relax and enjoy the game.

Zverev has his chances, should have won the 3rd and 4th set after being up a break.

Still a fair way from winning a slam but getting close.
He certainly had novak under intense pressure right up until match point.

The younger guys are every bit as technically talented as rafa rog and novak... but it's the mental fortitude that those guys have which sets them apart imo.

Zverev had novak on the ropes for long stretches last night- if zverev had just about any other player in that spot he would have steamrolled to a win.
But novaks ability to compartmentalise (moving on mentally) and reset himself won him the game.

Djokovic @ 5s and 4s
Yeah nah- he's sub $2 everywhere.
One hand on the trophy already.

My biggest win is on a novak medvedev final, but I think rafa will be there- he's looked great this year and his back seems fine now.

Regardless, I can't see any value in backing anyone for outright now- novak is red hot fav and short priced... and for good reason- it will be a massive upset if he doesn't win the title from here, no matter who he plays in the final.

Jump on board the Medvedev train. This is his open.

Even if Djokovic wasn't clearly struggling I'd still back Medevedev to make it 4 wins in a row against him. Nadal the biggest obstacle in his way
