Nadal is exceptional, such a privelege to watch him even now nearer the end of his career to play with such power and finesse.

That`s him now broke the record for slam titles hasn`t it? To think that at the start of the month all the talk was about Djokovic doing that and now it`s Nadal that is the goat.

They just might as well be closed

What is wrong with Mendvev at the final ceremony with the head of Tennis Australia. Did I lip read him correctly where he looked to me as if he said boring twice. His body language looks like a very ungracious loser. It actually makes him look like a loser

Quality. Delighted for him. Between this, Ash Barty and the men`s doubles it`s been a phenomenal week and turned the attention back to where it should be, the tennis.

Absolutely amazing match. For Nadal to come back to win from 2 sets down, considering his age and chronic injury problems, is mind blowing.

The commentator mentioned that this was the first time Nadal had overturned a 2 set deficit to win for 14 years.

Medvedev, let himself down a bit both during the final and in some previous matches at this tournament, with some of his antics, but he redeemed himself afterwards with some very gracious comments for Nadal.



Not your average Sunday League player.

Nadal just made his mind up he wasn`t losing. I still didn`t think that would be enough to grind down Medvedev, but seems like it was in the end.

I doubt Nadal has been 0-2 down enough times in the last 14 years to make his inability to turn it around that significant.

Medvedev seems to relish the role of the villain.

I love it when we go sell Kevin Nisbet,
He's gonna pay for everyone this season.

Fantastic match. Many swings during the game.

Medvedev was correct to mouth boring. It’s not her stage. Thank who you have to quickly and get off.

Did you notice Nadal sat down ?
