    I feel like every year after the U.S. Open, the McEnroes get asked if the new generation is ready to take over and they say maybe next year. One of these years they'll be right, but I'm not sure 2020 is going to be that year.

    Epic match. You gotta give Medvedev credit for not folding like most players would have. He has some real talent and is a tough guy to dispose of in points, games, and sets. Rafa had more gas in the tank in the 5th, or the result may have been different. He's probably going to win a few of these real soon.

    I'm glad Medvedev didn't win, but he redeemed himself a little in his post-match comments. I honestly didn't care much about his interactions with the NY fans. But for the love of god, don't be mean to the ball people. They're volunteers and they do a great job in every tournament. At least it wasn't a kid, which doesn't seem to matter to a couple of players. Just leave the people who are there voluntarily from their normal lives alone. I used to love watching David Ferrer play, but he was notoriously awful to the people working the tournaments, even the kids. Just no excuse for that.

    It might be down to a big 2 now, though. I'm afraid this year was probably Federer's last real hurrah.

    I'll believe he's dead when I see his dead body interred in the ground. He almost won Wimbledon this year.
