US Open – For Daniil Medvedev, Nick Kyrgios was at the level of Nadal and Djokovic on Sunday & More News Headlines

 

Daniil Medvedev lost big Sunday night on the Arthur-Ashe court. Defeated in four sets by a hair-raising Nick Kyrgios, the Russian failed in his quest for the New York double, while now being certain of losing his place as world number one. He could even come down from the podium in the ATP rankings. The consequence of his failure of the day and, beyond that, results in sharp decline for several months. But if he is probably not satisfied with his season, he should not have too many regrets about this match. He was beaten by better than him.

The shock of this night in New York probably says as much about what Medvedev is no longer quite as about what Kyrgios is now. The performance of the native of Canberra, in line with what he accomplished this summer, does not constitute a gigantic surprise. But Medvedev was still very impressed, even delivering this compliment: “I played Novak and Rafa. They are amazing. Tonight Nick was on their level in my opinion, in a different style. It was really a high level game. On his side, I mean.

This Man Is Crazy: How Kyrgios lost a point…that he won

The future former defending champion (he still is for a week after all) has now lost four times in five confrontations against Nick Kyrgios. He is therefore well placed to measure the difficulty of the mission. “It’s hard to play Judge Medvedev. His serve is amazing. But from the baseline, it’s not as if you had the advantage from the start of the point either. He plays well. He’s got all the punches.”

The only regret of Gilles Cervara’s protege is to have caught a cold snap in recent days, which has reduced him a little physically. “Physically, I started to feel worse in the third set, he explains. It probably made the difference. Today I felt a little sick. I always get sick in the United States because of the air conditioning. Last year, it was in Cincinnati, which was a good thing because it’s rare to get sick twice in two or three weeks. But that’s no excuse. Nick played very well. Then he beat me in Montreal and I wasn’t sick…

The Aussie has clearly earned everyone’s respect lately and Medvedev is no exception to this new rule. But the converse is true. If Kyrgios showed no particular joy after the match point, it was out of deference to his victim: “I didn’t celebrate too much, because I know if I play him nine more times, he’ll probably be above me most of the time..” Almost surprising when he has just won twice in less than a month against Medvedev.

Go to the end

However, he is aware of having reached a form of fullness on Sunday, especially in the last two sets, where he has evolved in a dimension that has made him unplayable, even for Medvedev. “I felt so liberated in the third and fourth sethe said. I had a lot of fun, I enjoyed every moment. I’m really proud of that. Overall I played very well. In return, I was amazing. I’m very proud of that.

And now ? Nick Kyrgios becomes the scarecrow at the top of the table, even the favorite of the tournament? “If he continues like this, he can go to the end“, slips Daniil Medvedev, who swears not to have been surprised: “Not really. I was not surprised but I would have liked him to miss a little more…“For his part, Kyrgios seems more in the skin of the one who has set a course and keeps his gaze straight towards the horizon than in that of the mad dog won over by euphoria. “It’s only a round of 16. I’m in quarters.

There too, he has changed. Six months ago, who would have thought that a place in the roller coaster of a Grand Slam could constitute for him a kind of “minimal duty“. But Kyrgios has other plans: “This is my last tournament before returning to Australia. I want to go to the end.“No arrogance in this displayed ambition. Just obvious.
