I’m not necessarily predicting his demise,


but yesterday was more than just pressure. He was dominated by a guy that served bigger, hit harder, and covered more ground. I suppose you could argue the pressure was more in dropping the first set in previous rounds which causes him to be in too many 4 and 5 set battles which wore him down by the time he got to the final, while medvedev cruised into the finals relatively fresh. But djokovic seemed overmatched yesterday.

I think he’ll win a few more slams, but I’d put my money on the French or Australian. I don’t see how he matches the young guys with the huge serves on the faster surfaces.
